The company that hosts the Dreamhack machine has let us know that they're prepping to migrate the machine to their new platform. We've been warned that due to the large number of files on the machine, the migration is likely to take a long time or fail to complete successfully.

In order to minimize migration-related downtime and maximize the chance of not having failures, we're temporarily zipping up the home directories of anyone who hasn't touched any files in their account since 2014. Nothing will be permanently deleted -- just temporarily turned from many files into one file. (The problem isn't with the amount of data, but the number of files.)

We'll let you know when the migration is happening. EDIT: We're going to aim for Thursday night, probably sometime in the evening, but depends on when [personal profile] alierak has the chance to babysit it.
