Over the next few days, I will be migrating our hosted services to a different physical machine (same datacenter, but better hardware).

There will be intermittent write locks, high latency and downtime as I transfer each service. If you have an @swordofkahless.com mail alias, delivery may be delayed by up to two days (assuming I can get the damn mail server working at all).

If you encounter connection problems for any of our services, please wait an hour or so and try again.

If you connect directly to this machine (for example, for COD4, WAW or ET), please be aware that the new machine has a different IP address, so you will need to change your connections from 207.150.160.90 to 207.150.180.66. Likewise, if you connect to "mirkwood.swordofkahless.com" for any purpose, you will need to change to "shire.swordofkahless.com" sometime during the transition.

Thanks for your patience
Brigadier Erroneous
Imperial Minister of Communications

Thanks for the notice... but what exactly is this Shire domain you speak of?

Our servers' permanent names are mirkwood (160.90) and shire (180.66). I am migrating our services from mirkwood to shire at the moment, pending mirkwood's permanent shutdown. While www, ts1, and so on, will gradually transition from pointing to mirkwood to pointing to shire, mirkwood and shire will not themselves change, so attempting to connect to mirkwood for any reason after next week will fail (you'll need to use shire instead).

If you never connect to mirkwood directly, you don't have to worry about it. All of the service subdomains will change automatically. You can see the progress by pinging each (for instance, if you pinged www.swordofkahless.com earlier today, you would have received an answer from mirkwood.swordofkahless.com...if you do it now, you should receive an answer from shire.swordofkahless.com).
