You all may have noticed that the website has not really been updated lately.  It's not because I am lazy or because there are no articles for the site to publish.  I've been a little weary of updating the page because of the past issues that we have had. 

I know nothing about computers, so an SQL injection sounds like something that you would take before your next at bat.  (Hah, Steriod joke!  Take that baseball!)  I do not know how to fix anything nor do I know what causes issues on this world wide web. 

With that being said, PureMTGO is moving to a new server tomorrow.  We are also moving to a new hosting company!  I'm really excited about the change, because in my mind it means there will be server stability, which will allow the writers an easier expirence in actually writing articles, and hopefully, this added stability and the security that comes along with it, will make the reading expirence that much better for you.  

Classic Week was a bust, and for that I apologize.  We are going to do another one in the coming weeks, and we can go ahead and schedule a week for PDC as well.  We remain excited to serve you here at PureMTGO.com!

You know PDC week sounds like fun, If i had enough advance warning of when it started I could do what I do best and write the Scrubs Guide to PDC.  It would basically be nothing more than a huge essay of how not to play pdc and such, but it could be funny.  IM sure there would be some deckbuilding too.

hey all!
I'm mitchy, the designer/programmer/host of PureMTGO. I'm doing alot of work to get PureMTGO back up to speed and running perfectly. Tomorrow we're getting a new dedicated web server and the hosting company has their own datacenter so downtime will be reduced by ALOT.

Thanks for everyone for their patience! The downtime tomorrow should only last a few hours, or however long it takes for the DNS to refresh to the new IP.

So are we migrated?  There was some downtime earlier today, but I don't know if that was just downtime or migration...

Heh, and this post is brought to you by the most evilist security code on the site... 666 to post this.  ZONO!

Yeah, I wrote an article for classic week but I ended up putting it on CQ since the attack was still going on at the time.

Hit me up again next classic week (I suggest 3 months from now ould be good) and I'll have lots of wordy things to type!

Good to hear!  Any ETA on how long things will be 'in transit', or should it be seemless?

Anything folks can do to help out along the way?

From what I understand we are going to be down all day tomorrow, I will have an update on the site when we relaunch on Friday, and I will not be making updates over the weekend, I'll be out of town for Grand Prix: Indy, and away from computers.
