Outage Notification

Post by Duckula »

Hi All,

We need to move the alpha.themajorbbs.com BBS to a new hosting provider within the next few hours. Therefore there will be periods of downtime during this period - apologies for any inconvenience and I will post once everything is up and running on the new host.

There was another short outage while DNS was updated - resolved and working again. Please report any issues here as there should be no further downtime.

You may have to clear your DNS cache if you are unable to connect.

Hi Duckula,

We saw a broadcast about the BBS going down for a 60 minutes maintenance a couple of days ago. Today, the board went down at 1:30~ AM EST and is still down.
Is that due to the planned outage?

Thank you in advance!
