    Exclamation NOTAM: SOH is moving, there will be a significant downtime

    Our hosting company was purchased by Rackspace last year. They are closing the data center that houses our server and moving the servers to another location 15 miles way.

    The move date is November 4th, 2018 .

    There will be significant downtime on both servers at the same time.

    Posted by Dangerous Dave. Once Novemebr 4th arrives, this explains why SOH will be unreachable.

    I'm feeling withdrawl symptoms already. SOH is my first stop of the day! Fingers crossed for a smooth crossover.
    Expect banging, belching and an occasional manly fart as you roar down the runway at full power. (I have found that the engine can make similar noises)

    I mentioned this over in the FSX side, but SOH should open a Discord Server....it's free, and would be a great way to communicate during outages. Food for thought.

    The move date is September 22, 2018 0:00 to 08:00 Central Time.
    Even if it spins out for more than 8 hours it is not that bad and maintenance must be performed.

    Have never used Discord, but know of it. Sounds like a good idea...NC

    SOH has had a TeamSpeak server (similar to Discord) for many years but unfortunately it is installed on the same server as the flight sim multiplayer installs so it will all go down at the same time.

    Discord is hosted through discord. In the cloud. There's nothing you need other than members and an invite link. It can do voice and text. I mostly use text. My squad uses discord. And honestly many many many places use discord. It's available in your phone and desktop equally well.

    Good suggestion, in my opinion. I'll put that up for discussion with the staff / admins.
