Upgrading and Changing Servers.
« on: November 08, 2012, 09:53:38 PM »


This is just a heads-up to lt you all know that from Sunday night (GMT) we will be transferring over www.hfminis.co.uk to a cloud server.

A couple of times in the last year we have had problems with our current server provider including just recently the old server 'died'.

This really isn't good with the amount of new ranges and new releases that are scheduled over the next few months, as a small company we can't afford the possibility of more downtime.  Investing in a cloud server for us is the logical thing to do especially with the pretty new website!

As soon as we have confirmed the actual timeframe for the move we will post it on the front page of the website.

Thanks for your patience, we really appreciate it.

most mornings i wake up grumpy.   sometimes i just let him sleep.

my life consists of brief snatched moments of living my life hidden deep among chaos, confusion& the  going crazy, every night i go to sleep filled with hope & enthusiasm for the new day coming.  then i wake up & think "here I go again" & just aim to survive.

Dunno if you're finished with this but there seems to be a bit of a problem with the site this morning!

The banner is missing and the top of the page is all blank and oversized :(

All seems fine to me now, a couple of hours on from the previous posting here. Not quite a "Cloud 9" (server), but no different to the site's working mid-afternoon yesterday before the changeover. Somebody's aim with the HTML wrench has improved in the interim, perhaps...
