Some of you are users on plover.net, the Linux server I've maintained for many years for IF usage (and for general use by friends of the IF community).

The current linode server was an old VM that's been upgraded. It's 32-bit-ness needs a-fixin.

So I created a brand new VM with Ubuntu 18.04 and I've started moving things over. This will likely take some time.

I have backups enabled, so there's nothing to worry about.

We will run both servers until everything is tested thoroughly.

The old server will be shutdown, if all goes well, at the end of July.

Linode was kind enough to give me one month free for the hassle.

I have been with Linode.com (only as a customer) for many years. You cannot beat their quality and service.

Thank you for plover.net

By the way, plover.net has been down all day. Hopefully someone influential can get it running again soon? (I have walkthroughs to upload.)

It's back up. My debit card changed and I killed the email account I had set for linode and never got the notices.

It's all fixed now.

Linode is great. I've been hosting 661.org on it for many years. I just wish they'd support *BSD as well as Linux.
