All,

I will be migrating the site to a new server later tonight. We may experience some downtime, but it should be VERY minimal.

Also, either tonight or tomorrow, GOTULA will also be upgraded to https://. This change should be automatic, and shouldn't affect anything besides possibly having to re-login again. I will let you now when it happens.

And please let me know if you experience any ONGOING issues with these updates.

Thanks!

Ok, the server migration and change over to https is complete. If you had any wonkyness the past 16 hours or so, my apologies, as I did have to tweak a few things. The site is now being served from one server, and the database on another.

The https was required for some recent updates by Google and how they rank and index sites. Plus, more secure is better.

The new server migration and setup does offer much quicker site load times, especially during higher peak traffic times.

Thanks again!
