We are moving cnvc.org to a new server
We will be doing the site transfer on Monday, June 4th starting at 5:00 a.m. Eastern time. 09:00 UTC
The transfer should take about two hours, but it may be longer before the Internet finds us in our new home.
So if you come to the site and it says that it is in maintenance mode, please try later until you see the home page. Then you will be at the new server.
If you have questions, please call me at 802-659-0144

Things are more clear, move Sunday, June 3rd looking likely.
I will be doing a dry run on the migration on Thursday, May 31st to verify that our plan will be effective. We are also setting up an appointment with a support person in Australia for this coming Sunday night to help if necessary. That way, I can close the site when it is least used and have support with a person starting at 9:00 am their time.

Site Migration has been postponed, possably will take place next Sunday.
Look here for updated information by Tuesday, May 29th.
The upgrade was postponed so we could cofigure and test the Drupal Pressflow platform that provides faster peformance by allowing Varnish caching
Varnish increases website performance by caching anonymous user connections and serving them from memory instead of making requests to the web server. If Varnish can't fulfill a page request, it passes it through to the Apache/PHP/Drupal stack. If the response from Apache is cacheable, Varnish stores it for faster responses to future requests.
If you are interested in the details, you can read more here.
We are growing and need more resources.
If all goes well we will be moving to a new host for the web site the coming Sunday, June 3rd, 2012.We will start the migration at 9:00 PM Eastern (21:00 Eastern US - 01:00 UTC) and expect that it will take about four hours.
Our first step will be to take the site offline, so if you come to the site during the migration you will see a notice saying "The Site is Offline".
The last step will be to change the DNS settings that tell the internet where to find us. It can take up to 48 hours for this information to all parts of the internet, even though most of the world will see the new location within four hours.
So, if you find the "Site is Offline" message, please try again later.
Why the change?
Some of you may have noticed a number of unexpected events while using the web site over that last few months, and more so lately. This is because we have outgrown the hosting service we have been using since last September, when we last upgraded our hosting.
What can we expect?
We will be doubling the resources (processors and RAM) to support the site and we will be hosted by Acquia, a firm that is dedicated to hosting and supporting Drupal sites.
Drupal is the free community supported framework for creating, organizing, presenting and managing a website that we have been using since 2006.
We currently have a support contract with Acquia, and now they will be supporting our hosting environment as well. This will make it much easier to resolve problems when they occur.
Will this happen again?
The best part of this new move is that the next time we need more resources they can be added with a few administrative commands and not require more than a few minutes of offline time.
We will be paying triple the amount for this hosting, so if you would like to help, you can donate to CNVC here.
