[simpits-chat] Service outage!

Hi folks, I wanted to let you know that in the coming week or so I'm going 
to be upgrading the network service to the simpits.org and my other 

The current network link uses a DSL circuit that runs 1.5/768k.  The 768k 
number is the important one as that's the amount of bandwidth that the web 
servers have to send you content.

I'm upgrading to a MUCH higher bandwith service of 20M/5M.  This should 
alliviate any remaining speed issues that the hardware upgrade from last 
year didn't catch.

The down side of this transition is that I'm going to have to renumber the 
entire outside network - this will require updates to the nameserver 
addresses that all my hosted domains use and that change can take up to 7 
days to propagate throughout the root name servers.

When I have a firm install date, I'll post another message letting you 
know when the outage is likely to begin.

Thanks for your patience!
