Genesis, the god of timeto Everyone

Although for the most part it will go unnoticed by the general population

of the land, Avalon today moved servers. It has always had an internet

position optimum for the US and Europe (in New York telehouse) and has

now moved to their upgraded facility, taking the opportunity to migrate

off the trusty workhorse machines that had been running the game for

6-8 years. The new computers will be able to handle whatever is throw

at them, unlike the previous nags whose performance was stretched

beyond the limit at certain times (like big gem quests or ordinations).

The migration should've been seamless and everything that was on the previous

computers is now on the new ones, thus there should be no noticeable

change to your persona, its inventory, its skills etc. If anything DOES

look unusual, bring it to my attention or tell one of my fellow deities.

The only other thing to add is there may be periods of latency/delayed

response over the next few days. This is due to the background copying over

of almost twenty years worth of logfiles and information accumulated by

Avalon since its birth on a 'proper' computer in 1989. As you can imagine

this is a colossal amount of flotsam and jetsam so although I've set

it to copy across with as little disruption as possible, there may be

periods when a particularly big 'block' is taken over onto the new

machines - and this you might notice as a short delay. It could well be

this copy-over passes you by completely - but we felt it worth warning

folks beforehand so they knew what to expect. The copy-over will be

complete by early next week at the latest.
