Planned server move this weekend

Dear all,

First of all, I’m sorry for not updating this site very often these last few years. Basically I have been busy with my full-time job and “real life” and just haven’t had much time to work on indie game programming projects for a while. I do hope to get back to it sometime, but probably won’t be able to do too much for at least the next year or two, unfortunately.

Also, I hope everyone reading this has been staying safe during the pandemic.

The reason I’m writing today is that I’m going to be moving the Knights server (and my personal website) to a new hosting provider. (My existing provider has said they will be discontinuing VPS hosting at some point in the future, and also I can save a bit of money by moving to a cheaper company, so now seems like a good time to do this.) I notice there is a Knights game planned this Saturday so I’ll try to fit in the work either Saturday evening after the game has finished, or Sunday morning. That should give plenty of time to fix things if everything starts going wrong 🙂 (especially since Monday is a holiday here in the UK as well).

Of course I hope (and expect) that it will all go smoothly, but there might still be a little downtime, so basically what I want to say is, don’t panic if the site is inaccessible for a time, I will be working to get it back again as soon as possible!

Any concerns, drop a note below or email me at stephen (at) solarflare.org.uk.

Thanks to all Knights players for your support over the years!

Stephen
