Taunt is Moving
Wha!?!?!?!No really :) At an undertermined date in the future, Taunt's tf2 servers will go offline for an undetermined amount of time. They are going to be packed up and shipped to a new data center! This new data center will be faster and more reliable than our current data center. There is a thread here with some more discussion on the matter: http://tauntgamers.com/forums/index.php?/topic/2190-i-fucking-hate-picking-topic-titles
Once the servers come back online YOU WILL NEED TO RE-FAVORITE THE SERVERS. We will update this page with the new IP Address once it is known. Most likely, this move will happen towards the end of this week, and most likely will only be a single day or two of downtime.
We will most likely add at least one new tf2 server once the move is complete. And there will probably be a couple of other awesome changes as well :) StimSim has promised to increase the sex, drugs, and candy output of all carts. Who knows what else could change? I don't. (That's a lie). Lolcano 2012. What?
May the horsemann be with you.
Thanks much, and sorry for any inconvienence, but it will be worth it.
Rough TimelineMonday: I will get the IP address (or maybe Tuesday).
Monday: All servers will get backed up. No other backups will be made, so it is technically possible to lose a day or two of stats.
Tuesday: I will tell the old company to pack shit up. At any point on Tuesday or Wednesday, the server could go offline.
Saturday: The server will be shipped. I will update the DNS records Saturday morning to point to the new server. This means tf2.taungamers.com will point to the new server starting Saturday morning.
Saturday - Monday: The server will be turned on in the new DC.
