In case you haven't followed the stats, the number of visits to Kairosnews has increased by a factor of ten in the last couple of months. Because I'm hoping that interest in Kairosnews will continue to grow, as well as the fact that the server will also be supporting three undergraduate writing classes using their own PostNuke sites, I'll be upgrading the server sometime either Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
Because part of the upgrade includes replacing the motherboard and cpu, it will be necessary to reinstall the operating system. Thus, Kairosnews will be down for at least several hours if not most of a day. I'll send out an email to all registered users immediately before I shut it down so that you'll have some idea of how long before Kairosnews will be back online.
I would also like to apologize for any inconvience this will cause. While you may not notice any increased performance in accessing the site following this upgrade, know that it will enable the server to respond to a much higher level of traffic without performance degradation.
