It's almost time to move to Switzerland! We've got our saidit Swiss server up and running a copy of saidit right now, and we're almost ready to go, just as we talked about doing here: https://saidit.net/s/SaidIt/comments/oxo/saiditnet_may_28_2019_improved_expandos_accounts/
It's all working. The final testing step that remains is replicating the saidit.net database on to the new server to make sure everything works as expected. Hopefully should be just a few days more at most.
This move will be great for the long-term security and functionality of saidit. Thanks to everyone who has donated to help pay for server costs! Saidit is proud to be entirely community funded, and we have you all to thank for it. And to top it all off, the Swiss server is $2/mo cheaper than the one we're currently using in Dallas, so it actually cut our budget down a little bit to make this move as well. Win/win!
Once everything is all tested, a day or two after that I'll make an announcement, and we'll copy again the newest version of the database to make it as recent as possible, then immediately make the switch so saidit.net will point at the swiss server. The DNS changeover may happen instantly, or it may take up to an hour. During this DNS changeover period, things posted to the website will not be saved. I will post to give everyone 24 hours advance notice of when this will happen, but hopefully it'll be at midnight and will only last a few minutes. Then once that's done, we'll be Swiss!
