The changing of the season from Summer to Fall can only mean one thing. That’s right! It’s time for a server move. We moved the PowerPage server to a fatty 64-bit Linux box this week and things are still a bit messy. Turns out that the switch from 32-bit to 64-bit is not trivial and is taking a bit longer than expected. Some notes:
– DNS hasn’t replicated around the planet yet, so if you’re having trouble reaching the PowerPage, try: http://www.powerpage.org/ (remove everything after the .org/ if you’re using a bookmark) or you can dial up our temporary address: http://newton.ctyme.com:6001 which will go away in a few days.
– If you’re behind a corporate firewall you may be unable to reach port 6001, so stick to RSS for now until DNS propagates worldwide – which may take another day or two.
– We’re eventually moving from Web Objects to Movable Type (MT) and we’re looking for a MT consultant or guru to help. If that’s you contact us with some references. This is a paid position.
Thank you for sticking with us during the change, we’re looking forward to providing a better, more reliable PowerPage in the weeks and months to come.
