freshmeat's moving

As many of you might have followed along, all OSDN websites are being moved from a co-location center from the east coast to a different co-location center on the west coast. freshmeat's next (or last) to move starting today, so if you see any service disruption, bear with us as we move all machine duties from here to there. OSDN netop have already duplicated the freshmeat cluster in the new center so moving should actually not be very noticable for users. But as usual, one's not always aware of all things that can possibly break. Thanks for your attention and have a nice day.

West coast ideal?
By westcoast do you mean California?

Does anyone else find it distrubing that so many pieces of the internet reside in a area prone to earthquakes and rolling blackouts?

Re: West coast ideal?
Why not Europe?

After all, half way between CA and Japan, and covers GMT (or GET as we're supposed to think of it these days :-) )

But Europe does have a useful geographical centre, which the middle of the Pacific does not have

Hey now
Better than tornados and hurricanes. Actually don't think we've had a rumbler in a few months now. I do sometimes laugh though at the thought that my ISP is located on the side of a volcano. :)

looks like we are through!
I should have made the connection when Slashdot moved...I had thought perhaps freshmeat was experiencing hardware issues ...good news to hear it was just a move. You never know how much you miss freshmeat until it is gone...great job guys!

A few months? You're all completely mad. We had
a couple of richter 4 quakes here in the UK a
month or two ago and it made headline news
nationally. Something you lot would call small.


Even if I lived on the side of a volcano, I'd host
my servers somewhere without that kind of single
point failure problem (ie, the ground
mis-behaving).
