Internal Database Server Upgrades

Tonight, after Support closes, we’re going to begin an invasive upgrade on our primary internal database servers.  The upgrade necessitates a complete dump and restore to new hardware and is expected to take several hours to complete.  The new servers are substantially more powerful and many of our internal systems should see a marked performance improvement.  While the data is being migrated and imported, all signup and member tools will be unavailable but all other services will otherwise remain unaffected.  — Kelsey and William

Update:  The upgrade appears to have gone according to plan and all internal systems are back online at this time.
