Facing imminent disk drive failure, we've decided to take this opportunity and move to an entirely new server. No data will be lost and there should be little downtime (~2h) over the new couple days. Mostly due to any DNS propagation. It will be a faster server ready to serve you PF discussions at great speeds to quench your thirst! Due to this development we'll likely wait to announce PF Award winners till Thursday! Thanks for your understanding!

If we do encounter any unexpected hiccups we'll post updates at

Well folks, I hate to say it but I screwed up. The data transfer went a bit haywire and I'm going to have to do it over again. I'll be moving the database last so I can turn them back on for a bit. I'll expect to close them again in a few hours. Sorry!
