I am upgrading the Lottery Post database server, so it is possible that there will be an outage at some point, and possibly even strange bugs that take place.

I am backing up the database just prior to the update, so in the case of a complete disaster, we shouldn't lose very much.

I just wanted to make everyone aware of this in the off-chance that something strange or unusual happens.

Wish me (us) luck. Smile

                The bulk of the upgrade is now complete, and it was successful.  You may be able to notice a slight performance increase, as the new database technology is better than the old one.  However, the big increases in performance will only come after I re-write sections of code to take advantage of new features in the database software.

                Also, I will be able to re-write the search page from the ground-up to make it work more like Google.

                  Does that mean we'll be able to put quotes around what we're searching for? That would be way cool!

                    I just answered the doorbell and it was a traveling werewolf. Does that count as something unusual happening? Big Smile
