    The board will be offline January 31st to get us ready for the month of February and the trade deadline or as we know it, the Playoffs. I'll be moving the databases over to separate hosting. I have no idea how long this will take but if you sign up for text alerts or follow me on twitter I'll keep you updated.

    We've also purchased new forum software (xenforo) and we'll be migrating over to it the first week of March. We shouldn't have any downtime but a few posts may go missing during the transition. I'll try to make everything as seamless as possible but expect the unexpected when moving a board that is this old and pieced together with bad hacks and scotch tape.

    I'm going to try to start the database move sometime between 4am and 5am on the 31st and it should take 2 to 3 hours.
