Our servers have been picked up from the Chicago data center and will be placed in our new DC either on Monday or Tuesday, they will then be updated and reconfigured to ease the load on our new server by adding back services, such as search and staff services currently unavailable to us (Jabber, Development site etc).
The recent difficulties with getting on Neowin had to do with an article that was slashdotted on the 8th of August, these things always seem to come along when we have our pants down!
You may of also noticed that a lot more original content is going up on Neowin, this has to do with a new initiative behind the scenes that is making it much more worthwhile for our staff to spend time researching news and writing up original pieces. Once we are fully back online I will go into much more detail about that on my blog and hopefully we can raise some interest from our membership to take part as well, but for now.. Thanks for your continued patience while we strive to improve Neowin's services for you.
