Dear patient readers,
We are going live on a new webhost at 1:30 AM EDT on June 11.
The way this works is:
1. New webhost will have sucked all content out of the site right before the switchover.
2. The site at the old location goes into maintenance mode. That means you can’t post comments at the old location.
3. The domain name servers are told to start looking at the new webhost for NC.
Those steps are executed rapidly. However, it takes a while for 3 to propagate over the internet. Some of you will not notice any change since the servers near you will have gotten word that NC is at a new place right away. Some of you who access servers that don’t get word as quickly may have a period (at the very outside, a couple of hours) where you see the maintenance mode version of the site.
We are doing step 2 (freezing the old site) because we don’t want people posting comments at the old location after the switchover and having them lost that way. So the hopefully minor inconvenience is for a good end!
