Server move; service interruption

On Tuesday, March 10th, 2020, the server that hosts this forum is being moved from one datacentre to another, starting at approximately 10:00PM GMT.

Hopefully, disruption will be minimal and it will be back in operation approximately an hour later. If there are technical issues -- such as evidence of hardware problems -- service may be delayed for several days whilst the server is repaired or a new server is commissioned and backups restored.

Was there an issue? It seemed to be off for a while, but I wasn't really checking.

Nope, it was fine.

It was only offline for an hour or two whilst the physical server was shut down, moved about a mile from one building to another, and restarted.

There was some delay on restart because the machine decided to do a disk scan due to not having been rebooted in a while, and a minor networking issue that kept DNS resolution from working for about ten minutes, but other than that most of the downtime was just physical movement stuff.
