It was a long a tiring day, but the Newgrounds servers have been moved from NYC to Philly! I'll have to post all about the big move later - right now I am going to bed!

As of around 11pm, we got the site and database up and running. The affiliate server is still down, but expect it to be up and running tomorrow and the affiliate sites back on-line. Our webmail server is also not running yet, so don't bother emailing me. :)

I can't describe how awesome it is to have NG in Philly after all these years in NYC! I can drive down to the hosting facility, swipe a card, and look at the servers whenever I want to now! YAY!

the popups help pay for the site, dummy. -__- they're basically sponsors.

Nice to hear the move went smoothly since I would've been rather pissed off if I couldn't get on NG for a couple of days. Good luck with everything NG-ish!

If there weren't pop-ups, there wouldn't be NG. Anyways,
I'm glad that NG Staff are near the servers now, you'll have a constant eye on them, in order to see if everything is running good and stuff... Well, I'm pretty happy for it, and luckily, we're off to a new era of NG !

We're still with the same hosting facility, just in Philly instead of NYC, so they didn't lose our "deal". We're also using the same bandwidth provider. So no laughing for you. :)
