The upgrade will be happening tomorrow morning around 8:00 AM EST. The site may suffer downtime anywhere from 1 to 6 hours. When the site returns, please let us know of any issues you see.

This upgrade also includes changes to DNS. Depending on your ISP, you may have difficulty using "www.dpchallenge.com" and "www.dpcprints.com". The new sites will be accessible by IP address (I will post the IP when we're ready to go). Our plan is to redirect the old site to the new site using this IP address, so you shouldn't have too many issues.

Until tomorrow.

I sure hope so. Your old profile pic certainly needed cosmetics!

If you tell me where to get a "systems upgrade" hat in NYC at short notice, I shall definitely wear it on camera while jiggling the new known-good servers tomorrow morning.

There are no cosmetic or functional changes associated with this downtime.

so why even bother to tell us what's going on? Site goes offline for 1 to 6 hours, it comes back, people start new thread about it, new conspiracies... and forgotten after 5th day...

geeeesh...!!

So my goal for tomorrow is to PM every DPC user during the downtime to start ugly rumors about why DPC was banned from the internet forever. :D

It's a psychological experiment. One that those grim, futuristic, apocolyptic movies are made from.

Because after an hour down, snipers start to appear on rooftops near his home.

Hmmm, if it's not prettier, doesn't work better,
and is going to change something called DNS,
then, uh, why?

Could it be the reason he is trying to see what's going on at Virginia Beach from there?

OH NO!!! What are we all going to do??? Up to six hours without being able to see scores updating!!! No heated forum topic to get all worked up about!!! What about the people at work...did you think about the people at work...they might have to actually do some work!!! Life will just stop...I guess I could take some pictures. But that will just throw my whole schedule off. LOL ;)

Thanks for the heads up Langdon, hope all goes smooth for you. And thanks for all you do for DPC it's the best and so are you. Scott

Other than speeding tickets? :) Well, I hear that certain members left the city reeling with their adventures, but maybe that's just more baseless gossip... NAHHHH!

Here is an improvement. Reply time per thread so people could read it before answer to it... For example, if i reply to a thread, that thread has to stay on hold around 1 minute before next reply posted... mean time, people read and realize that it was said way before, and save time and space to reply the same over and over again LOL
