We are migrating!

This site is down from 8pm on Friday, 27 March 2020 until we get it migrated to the new domain. The plan is to have it done by Sunday morning. When it is complete, visiting sci.rutgers.edu will bounce you to the new domain name.

Update Log

In chornological order, most recent at the top, oldest at the bottom.

Update15:55 Saturday The upgrade to 5.2.5 has been running for about 2 hours. With 1.7M posts in the forum, anything that touches all of them takes a long time. So far so good. It all looks like it is going well.

Update13:45 Saturday We've upgraded the new site to 4.2.5 successfully. Now we start upgrading to 5.x.

Update 10:00 Still going. Database work is done. Just cleaning up a few brokn links to attachments and threads. Next we upgrade to vBulletin 4.2.5

Update 02:00 28 March 2020 Still going. Rebuilding post and thread indexes. Gonna get some sleep while that runs.

Update 22:50Database cleanup begins...

Update: 21:10 27 March 2020: Database and files have been copied from the old server to the new. The old server (which you're looking at now) is basically quiescent. Nothing new will happen here except these occasional updates. Database load should be done about 21:30, then we have some essential database reindexing and prep that runs until about 22:30.
