|Long Description||On his first trip to London to stay with his glamorous aunt and uncle for Christmas, Ivo Moncrieff steps off the train and stumbles into a nightmare. As he is waiting on the tube platform, a stranger thrusts a mysterious object into his hand, desperately muttering some unfamiliar words to him. On-board the tube moments later, the carriage next to Ivo's is overcome with panic and when they enter the next station the passengers disembark to find that the stranger's body has been brutally dismembered. Ivo guesses that perpetrators must want the object, and if they find out he has it, he will be their next target. But the attack on the tube is part of a larger scheme to bring chaos to the heart of London. As the capital seems in danger of sliding into anarchy, Ivo faces a race against time to break the ancient power of the Liberators, a power that has lain dormant for centuries but now threatens to destroy society itself. Philip Womack has written a gripping and thought-provoking tale that entertains at the same time as it explores what it means to be human and to be free.|

Well heck! We had another upgrade of hardware today and the process simply took far longer than expected. Sorry!
Yes, we added some more new hardware. To insure that nothing got lost we had to perform a full database backup.
This backup required copying over 70gig of data from one machine to another and this required a complete database shutdown.
Now this step took longer than expected but that wasn't all, installing the new hardware took longer than expected.
The good news? We now have new servers for both the web server and the database server PLUS backup equipment for both servers. The old equipment has been recycled into massive file servers and backup servers so we haven't wasted anything.
The hope is that all these upgrades over the past couple weeks will improve over all system performance and reliability. With all the traffic we have been seeing lately, the old database server and web server have been getting pushed to their limits. We now have some breathing room again.
Thanks for your patients.
