Upgrading the site tonight 11:30PM CET, DNS change required

This means that for some users, the updated forum might not be reachable for some minutes, hours or so until DNS changes will propagate to their specific local DNS servers.

At 11:30PM CET (2:30PM PST), we will thus activate read-only mode of the forum to prevent people from posting stuff on the old install that doesn't get copied over to the new install.

The new install is on a much faster more dedicated server, so hopefully there won't be anymore server timouts, crashes, and the upgraded forum software should enable us to install more functionality and an updated design to the forum during the next few days.

Hurry up if you have a long post that you want to save on the board. In about 15 minutes from now, we are going to attempt moving the whole site to the new server, and trigger the DNS change.
