Ok guys.. it's on like Chaka Khan! I've set up a duplicate network here and run it through a lot off tests. We won't know until the entire thing is set up and running, but I THINK we're good to go.. so here's the schedule.

In a few minutes, I will change the runtime of all of tomorrow's races (2015-07-12) to end by 9:00 AM EST. That's so I have a nice, fat window to move the physically game tomorrow.

Once all of the scheduled races on 2015-07-12 are completely uploaded, I will take the game offline. I expect this to occur by 9:30 AM EST. I will then backup the entire game (which can take a bit of time) and (CAREFULLY) load the computers into my car.   I'll probably also do a "front end" server updates as well. Considering I'll also have my rugrats with me, I expect this part to take at least a couple of hours. We'll assume that I can be packed and (thumbs up!) RTG by Noon EST.

I will then start my 3+ hour trek to Franklin. Once here, I will begin unloading the computers and hooking them up. If all works well, however, I should complete this part in ~2 hours, but I will buffer in an extra hour, just because I always mess up something when it comes to hardware hookups... :P

So if all goes as planned, we should be back online around 7:00 PM EST.

There is a CHANCE that something goes completely wonky here. If so, I may have to keep the game offline for the rest of the evening and head back to Louisville the next day to hook everything back up while I troubleshoot here (I'll post updates if this occurs). Trust me - I DON'T WANT THAT! If that happens and the the game is down into the next day, at least take comfort in the fact that you are having a much better day than I am.... :/

Wish me luck!
