AmigaWorld.net is moving servers again

Once again, we're moving servers. Our current hosting provider has decided to stop operating the server type we're currently using, so we're migrating to a new server at a new location.
The first step is already done, today at 16:00 UTC we moved the IRC services from the old server to the new one without much of a hiccup.
If you experience problems connecting to IRC, make sure you are not using the IP address of the old server, but rather the DNS name, either irc.amigaworld.net (for a rotation of all the servers) or de.amigaworld.net to use the AmigaWorld Main server.
The IP address of de.amigaworld.net should point to 126.96.36.199, if it does not, check whether you have created a hosts file entry for it pointing it somewhere else. If nothing works, you can always use /server no.amigaworld.net or /server se.amigaworld.net or simply /server 188.8.131.52
Shortly, possibly over the weekend, we'll migrate the website to the new server as well. It should be a relatively painless experience for all involved but we apologize for any interruption to our services while this is ongoing. I'll update this news item once we get closer to actually doing the website move and after we finish it.
