    Over the next 7 days we will be introducing new servers. We will also be upgrading numerous software components at the same time. This process will inevitably result in an extended outage during the switch over period.

    Timeouts will be disabled during this period, and there will also be timebank compensation for all games.

    No details on timings quite yet, but we are very keen to migrate as soon as the hardware is available to us to resolve a few critical problems we have experienced recently. Site performance should also benefit.

    Further details here as they become available, but a message broadcast will be made to all persons once the details are finalised.


    edit : Software updates will not introduce any new features, sorry.

    Soon(ish) but our focus is on getting the server update released and some stability updates live before attention shifts to things like that.

    Thanks, you are very kind. It would have been nice to have avoided the current problems we are having altogether.

    Beach time sounds nice though

    Server upgrades incoming

    Whenever I hear the word "incoming", I grab my helmet, jump into the foxhole, and wait for the **** to hit the fan!

    Keep up the good work improving RHP!

    I'm in the computer SW and IT business (likely as are many other RHP users/subscribers), and I specifically know what it takes to keep a large critical 24x7 site up and operational. You guys are doing a fantastic and very professional job. Kudos!!

    Yes, it's obviously much more important to have a little graphic indication which shows loyalty to a childish concept on a website than actually being able to access that website.

    Russ, any chance that an attacker might be behind these problems? Database corruption, DOS, etc?
