chat has its own dedicated server so should "in theory" be unaffected.......however, you will have to get to the chat room via its URL rather than via the forum and then log in with your forum username and password (you wont be logged in automatically unless coming directly from the forum)

Chat Room URL - http://e-cig-reviews.com/forum/chat.php (http://e-cig-reviews.com/forum/chat.php)

cheers

hi mate,

its more to do with maintenance at the server end rather than the forum end:-


"You might be aware we have changed our primary datacentre to Equinix LD5 in Slough, one of the UKs premier datacentres. Built to be extremely reliable and secure, Equinix features two diverse power feeds which enter at either side of the compound; innovative cooling designs, and military-style security: to reach our equipment you need to pass perimter fencing, 24/7 staff, a bomb-proof man trap and three biometric scans. It's a facility trusted by banks, governments and us, and we pay a premium for it.

As part of a migration away from our older legacy datacentres, we have meticulously planned to move the servers which host your sites to our private suite in Equinix. You will benefit immediately from increased power resilience, and a better, larger, network"


so according to the sales pitch, the main features will be "an increased power resilience and a larger network"

cheers

scott
