Default Wings900/DAC Server Move 1/31/05 - Downtime, Please Read

As you may or may not know in mid-November 2004 Wings900 & DAC moved to a new virutal server. In the past few months both websites have seen tremendous growth, in fact our traffic is up by more than 15-25% over last years statistics! As a result the performance of the server over the past 2 weeks has gotten worse and in the last 3 days we've had 3 system crashes.

To meet the growing demand of our users, and make sure we stay online 100% of the time, the Wings900 & DAC team have purchased a DEDICATED server! Thats right, no more shared resources, limited disk space, and poor network performance, we are going prime time. This server is dedicated 100% to Wings900 & DAC. It will be a 2.4ghz system with 1GB of ram, 80 gigabytes of storage and 1200 gigabytes of bandwith per month. This is approximately 10 times the storage and bandwidth we have now!

The anticipated move date to the new server is on 1/31/05 - 2/1/05. During this time frame the forums and photo galleries will be offline, however all other resources will be available. We do ask that users refrain from updating their My Collection during this time. We will notify everyone via an announcement and forum post once we have successfully completed the move.

We apologize for this inconvenience this may have caused however we think the new server will improve your overall experience and greatly improve performance. If you have any questions please write to us at: [email protected]

As always we appreciate your support and look forward to providing you more features in the near future!

-The Wings900 & DAC Team

An update, the new server has been fully built and we hope to initiate the transfer tomorrow morning bright and early. From the looks of it so far, the new server is SUPER FAST!
