Okay, perhaps that’s not completely accurate. 😉
But blog comments will be disabled this afternoon and evening. And we have had enough of how slowly this blog loads sometimes. Let me explain.
BoardingArea (which hosts OMAAT) has been trying to find a solution for faster bandwidth, and they’ve finally figured something out. That’s good news, because it should improve your experience loading and browsing the blog.
The bad news is that putting in place this new software and hardware requires a migration to new servers. This is expected to happen at around 3PM ET today, Thursday, March 3, 2016. The entire process should take no more than eight hours, so hopefully by the end of the night things are back to normal.
But don’t worry, the blog itself won’t be down, and we’ll even be publishing (pre-written) posts during the downtime, so be sure to check back during that time. The only thing you won’t be able to do is leave comments on the blog.
We appreciate everyone’s patience, and if everything goes as planned the commenting feature will just be down from 3PM until 11PM ET today.
Take this as a warning, so you can get whatever you’re thinking off your chest prior to then. 😉
Thanks for reading!
