Ok

Hi.

Tonight we're making a little change. We're switching out all of our
hardware that runs these forums. <worldwide panic> Hang on...if the
planets align and the money spent on the witch doctor wasn't wasted,
you shouldn't notice anything more than about a 20 minute outage around
6 or 7 pm MST then all will be well with the world.

HOWEVER (and you knew there had to be a catch) if you use the DNS name
of support-forums.novell.com.....we're not using that any more. If you
use forums.novell.com *THAT's* the one we'll be using from here on out
for all forums (support, developer, education). Don't panic though,
we're still leaving our old hardware up and running with the
support-forums.novell.com name attached so you won't be left out in the
cold.......yet......so I would encourage you to use the
forums.novell.com name at your earliest convenience (or before the old
hardware dies, whichever comes first). You can switch and your news
reader shouldn't skip a beat. [Disclaimer: if everything tonight goes
to hell in a handbasket, it's not my fault....I'll point the finger at
someone else]

Thanks for your attention.
