In order to provide our customers with better service we will be moving most
of our servers to a new location over the next few weeks. During the next
few days some worlds and or universes may be temporarily unavailable while
they are stopped on the main server and started on the backup server. Once
we have the main server in the new location we will transfer the worlds and
universes back to the main server. Most of these moves will go unnoticed
except for the move of the world AW. This will require that all new building
be shut down for a day while the database is moved. This will take place on
Thursday 03/21/02 and AW should be back open to building sometime on
03/22/02. The move back to the main server will take place in the first
weeks of April, exact date to be announced later. As always if you have any
problems connecting to any of our services please send a detailed email to
support at activeworlds.com

The universes will only be down for a short period on Friday, other worlds
besides AW will not have the building shut down, they will just go off line
over the next few days. Some of the larger worlds such as AWteen will be
offline longer than others.

We are more than happy to say. All you had to do was ask. :) The new
location is in Boston and is going to be fed bandwidth by Internap
http://www.internap.com They will be providing us with two 100mbps feeds
intelligently routed through 9 backbone carriers. We anticipate better
connectivity worldwide for world servers as well as end clients. Please
visit their website for more information on their P-NAPSM.

We host alot more than just the AW universe. The actual usage is alot less
but at times may spike very high. The reason for the two connects is for
redundancy.

Yeh, I don't see why they would go down. Only reason other worlds are going
down is because hosting has to stop while transferring to the new server.

Hi everyone:

[View Quote] I also have to wonder if this is behind the reason a mysterious bot named
[M1] appeared on AW GZ and started kicking everyone out (including Customs
Aide) left and right last night. Hmm.....Why do I have this feeling.....

P.S.: While you guys are at Bill, you guys should SERIOUSLY look at
UPDATING THE MAPPER at http://mapper.activeworlds.com/ February 2000 is a
*little* OUT OF DATE, dontcha think????? :-)

No, someone hacked the Peacekeeper account, or, a peacekeeper went nuts.
Who knows, but, why would someone move their servers somewhere else because
a password got hacked? Think!

Hi everyone:

[View Quote] So, given the size of AW and the number of builds, cities, towns, etc., just
how long of a down time are we looking at here (roughly speaking)??

Also, there's a concern that any move of AWcom would result in more fees.
So, I'm asking. WILL prices be raised??? Will there be any additional fees
stemming from this move???

Let's get this all out on the table Bill....

P.S.: Will ANY Tourist builds (regardless of size) be deleted????

Hi everyone:

[View Quote] They host all those 3D Homepages, which are, in their own way, little worlds
themselves if that's what you're asking....
