Victoria Strauss -- For AW Addicts Only

If you're an Absolute Write Water Cooler addict and have noticed that your drug of choice is offline today, fear not--the absence is temporary. Here's the Official Announcement:

The Absolute Write Water Cooler is scheduled for intensive Techno-Therapy, Sunday morning, at approximately 6 a.m., Pacific zone (9 a.m., Eastern). We will be temporarily closing the boards to make the move to our new server. Keep your fingers crossed for us--if all goes well, we should be back up by Monday.

This is a Very Good Thing for the Water Cooler and should be well worth the minor discomfort of going without our online community for one day.

In the meantime, PLEASE DON'T TRY TO ACCESS THE FORUMS! Give the techies time to work their magic.

For those who cannot stand the exile, the chat room will still be functional. Click here, change the 'Guest' listed next to 'Nick' to your AW userid, and click 'Connect to Starchat'.

Also, Roger has erected a few tents at the old Refugee Camp for those who would like to hang out there. You'll need to bring your own food and drinks. Since we anticipate only being down for a day, we have not brought in supplies. If we are down longer than anticipated, Mac or one of the mods will post updates there.
