  • Hi Lucian,
    We're targetting H1 of this fiscal year to migrate all.  More specifically we're hoping to move them all over by the November time frame.

    We're currently re-architecting our database into shards and adding distributed caching to scale out better before we move them all over to ensure we handle the load plus future growth well.

  • Owww, that hurts.  The off-topic volume has grown into a monster.  We're getting a new generation of OPs that have never heard of the old site.  Moderating it is impossible.  Please consider adding posting advice to the front page, about at the "hit Ctrl+F5 to post" level that helps OPs finding the other sites.  The vast majority of off topic volume falls into these categories, roughly in order:

    - ADO.NET
    - ASP.NET
    - Data controls and binding
    - Windows Forms
    - Smart Devices
    - XML
    - Express editions

    Yeap, that's a big problem. We're driveing people away when moving their posts to Offtopic. At least tell them where to go to get help...
