Site note: Technical upgrade tonight, short outage likely

FRIDAY NIGHT, 10:57 PM: Just a warning – WSB may be offline for a short time later tonight, because we’re making a technical upgrade – moving to a new server with more power and memory, to handle the ever-increasing usage, which sometimes leads to site slowness. Thank you for your support and collaboration, and forgive us in advance for the inconvenience while we’re making and verifying the change. If there is breaking news during the downtime, we’ll report it in full on WSB’s Facebook page and will have bulletins on Twitter, as always. Our sites White Center Now and The South Park News are on other servers, so they’re always available for backup too.

SATURDAY, 7:31 AM: Looks so far like the move was a success – please let us know in comments or via e-mail ( if you encounter any error messages or unavailable pages. Meantime, we’re moving on to catching up with some stories we covered yesterday/last night that were delayed by breaking news and then the technical move. Thanks for your understanding!

    Hopefully it will help. I had the hardest time getting your site to open yesterday.

      Thanks, Rick, and our apologies again. This apparently was not the magic solution so the site’s back up on the rack. We appreciate your patience. – TR
