    We (RHP dev & support) are in the UK, west of London.

    The servers are currently in Virginia but in the next 30 days they will all be boxed up and flown to Dallas (US), where they will find a new home.

    This will result in an outage of up to 24 hours, but we will announce that nearer the time.

    That ad revenue report is totally laughable. If only that was even close to being true.

    Here's hoping they work better than the current lot. I'm driven crazy by the slowness of this site: I reload several US sites at once, all the others arrive back a LONG time before the RHP ones. Tracert shows the problem isn't in the line, it's after it arrives on the server at netadapt.com (can't track how long the turnaround is with anything I have here). Usually around 5-10 seconds before a page loads, but a lot of the time (presumably busy times on the server) it's up to 70-90 seconds to get a board or MyGames page, much less for a forum page.

    Update : We are avoiding the boxing up of our kit, and taking new hardware.
