Tomorrow I am moving Garden.org to a new home at a new data center. This move is a physical one. I'll be driving to Dallas and picking up the server and driving it about a mile down to the road to a new location.

During the time that I'm moving the hardware, the site will be completely offline.

My hope is to accomplish this as fast as possible, but I'm limited by a number of factors, including traffic. Blinking So, prepare for some downtime tomorrow, before lunchtime.

The move is complete. We were down for less than an hour. Not bad considering what all had to be done to move this machine.
