This site will shortly be moving to a new server — although there haven’t been many problems due to the current server, there will hopefully be even fewer at the new one!

Because of the move a number of things may happen, possibly at some point this week:

  • I may switch off the ability to post annotations for a period, possibly a day or so. This will enable me to copy the database to the new server without losing any annotations on the way.
  • The process of pointing the domain name (www.pepysdiary.com) to the new server can take varying amounts of time to work its way around the internet, so you might see the server at its new site to different times to other people.
  • Some things may well be broken during the move, but bear with me and I’ll iron them out as soon as I can.

I’ll post further details as soon as I know more precisely when the move is likely to take place. Thanks for your imminent patience!

Might there be a helpful notice to the effect that
"Pepys Has Moved! Please change your bookmark to" such and such,
as one sometimes sees on other sites?

Best wishes for smooth transition.

No, that won't be needed Bradford - the address will stay exactly the same, but there can be a little disruption while the whole internet gets to hear about which server the name should now point to. But thanks for the thought!

Good luck! Hope you have better luck with your computer changes and "improvements" than I usually do :-)

I can only thank you again for this wonderful site.
You demonstrate here every day that the Internet can contribute to our culture in an intelligent way.
I hope the slight sweat, taquipnea, mydriasis and some anxiety I feel at this moment are not part of a withdrawal syndrome apprehension...
