corner corner BookCrossing server upgrade coming up soon
February 2, 2018

Reno has announced an upgrade of the server that BookCrossing lives on. It's important to note that this means that we will be 'off the air' for a couple of hours. Here's his message:
We've scheduled a necessary server upgrade at our datacenter for next Tuesday, Feb 6, at 9:00PM Central US Time.

The site will unfortunately be unreachable during the upgrade, as we're making images of physical servers (which requires taking them offline) and moving them to a virtual server configuration. The new servers will be bigger (important as we're running out of disk space on current servers) and should be faster as well.

Expected downtime is 3-6 hours.

Thanks, Reno! It's good to know what's going on, and we are looking forward to a speedier and more stable site.
