Went to Freeperville this weekend, and got this on a splash page:
FR Forum Down for Migration!IMPORTANT: Free Republic will be down all night tonight for migration. Will be going down at 8:00 pm (Pacific) and should up again within about 12 hours.
Sorry, can’t be helped. We received notice from our provider that they were closing their San Jose data center on May 15, 2021 and that we could move our equipment to their new center when it’s ready.
We thought we’d have months to prepare, but they recently moved the deadline up to Nov 15 (tomorrow).
John scrambled and has a new home set up for us and is going to get a clean backup tonight and install it at our new location. Should be up and running by morning. Our IP address will be new, but hopefully everything else will remain the same.
See our group pages on facebook for messages.

Of course, as of this morning, they’re back up – me, I’m going back to bed.
