Happy New Year: SaturnFans.com Back Online, Server Move Postponed

Well, we're back! After the site crashed over the weekend, I decided to use the downtime to move SaturnFans.com to its new home. I had planned to do it back in Decemeber, but between the holidays, the SF Publisher being down, and other parts of the site needing maintenance, moving the site was not a priority. The good news is that over the weekend I was able to repair the database and fix the publisher. All of the articles published between December 8th and the end of the year will be restored from a backup later this week. Unfortunately, several batches of files transfered to the new site were corrupt, so the move has been postponed.

This isn't the start of the new year that I had hoped for, but I'm happy that the site is back online — even if its still on the old server. Afterall, sometimes it's the little victories that count, right? Sorry for the extended outage. Let me know if you find anything that isn't quite working right.

Happy New Year!
