We’re going to start the official turnover from highfiber six to the new highfiber zero within the next few hours folks, now that I’ve finally completed the last few items on my must-have-before-launch list. The process should be completely transparent: within the next 24 hours, everyone going through http://highfiber.org will see zero edition instead of 6. The server containing 6 will be taken offline within the next 2 weeks, as soon as I figure out how to download and archive the five-years-worth of data that’s currently on it. (Come to think of it, I’m not even sure I have enough space available to archive the 40gb or so that 6 currently consumes.)
Those of you who still don’t have accounts on zero edition should probably head on over to http://dev.highfiber.org now, as there will be an inevitable rush during the first few days of the turnover. The transition time is hard to estimate, so if you have stuff on 6 that you want to archive for your own purposes, you should do so now. I’ll wait until 9pm Philippine time to flip the switch, after which it may take between 6 and 24 hours for worldwide propagation.
I want to thank you all for sticking by highfiber for so long, and patiently waiting for me to get my act together. It took awhile, but I think we’re finally on the right path again. Hopefully you all do, too.
