Planned Outage - 3rd May 2007 - 8 AM to 10 AM GMT

Hi everyone.

We're having an outage to upgrade our server hardware; this will be taking place between 8 AM and 10 AM GMT (2 AM to 4 AM CDT) on Thursday May 3rd - which is today! (At least for me.)

We'll be moving from those slow old Core 2 Duo chips* to shiny new Core 2 Quads.**


Update: This server has been upgraded.  The production servers are still being worked on, but the beta test is back in action.

*  Xeon 3060's to be precise, and they're actually very fast.
** Xeon 3220's, and they're very very fast.

2 Did you tick the "Hidden" box on your site preferences, by any chance?  That's what it does.

I've logged into the old site. When I go to and login using my standard login/password combo, the login bog disappears, as though I've actually, you know, logged in. However, I have no idea how to register, create or access a site. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

4 Ah, tricky, that.  You already have a login, because and blogs use the same login, but you can't set up a blog on because that can only be done when you first register.

This will be fixed soon.

Thanks for the quick reply. I'm just glad that, for once, it wasn't me.

6 Is there a transition plan from the to ????

I still want to understand the templates better (to fix my sidebar) and I am happy to migrate my content from MT3 to but what happens then?

Should I sign up for a account instead and start fresh?

7 is a bit different - it's intended to be just a playground, and then you'll be able to set up your live Minx blog separately.  If you've already done a lot of work at you'll be able to copy that across to your live blog.
