No we won't lose the posts - it's not that kind of migration.
This is just an entire server move. I need to dump the data from one server to the other... straight drop. No reprogramming...
That's the good news.
Bad news is the downtime... again about a day. Once I take the board down, I initiate the copy and transfer. Should be a few hours. Then, I'll turn everything back on - and the internet will take about 24 hours to update (yes, server around the globe need to update to The Black Vault's new location...) Most will be updated within minutes or hours, while other slower servers take up to a day.
Wish me luck... this is no fun
