Our host is supposedly planning to move our site to a new, hopefully more stable, better performing server Saturday morning.  If you want to access this community after the server move on the weekend, you will need to replace the domain name, 4fxearth.net, with our new IP address that I won't know until after the server move is complete.  It will take between 24-48 hours for the new domain name settings to propagate around the planet, so it is possible that RCF may be offline for as much as 48 hours for those trying to access it using the 4fxearth.net domain name.  I will try to send out a mass email with information on how to access the site using the new IP address as soon as I know what it is.  This will allow you to continue to access RCF while the domain name is inaccessible.  By Monday, everything should be back to normal again.  Hopefully the new server will be a lot less problematic than the one we are hosted on now...

You should bookmark this link just in case IX decides to shut down the old IP address before the new domain name settings have fully propagated around the planet.  The following bookmark will continue to work even if the domain name 4fxearth.net stops working:

http://66.116.245.54/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=1

Hopefully there will be no downtime whatsoever.  IX has handled this server move very well so far, so it is possible that the server move will be completely transparent to us.  So far, so good.  It doesn't hurt to be prepared for the worst though just in case IX shuts down the old IP address today...
