Hi all,
that incredibly nerdy civ site is down until further notice, since we are migrating to our new servers.

This will probably take until next Tuesday (August 17th)

Our apologies for any inconvenience

The that incredibly nerdy civ site Team

god help us.

Six days to migrate to a new server?! Are they using 3.5" disks, pack donkeys and wheel barrels to move their data?

The technical term for this is "data muling".

True Story

back in the '80s, a secretary got told to make a backup copy of the office data stored in 5" floppy disks
she came back with a ream of A4 paper
she XEROXED all the floppy disks
