I cannot believe it December is already upon us which means 2009 is almost over.  Time sure does fly by when you’re really busy.  December though is not going to fly by this has been historically our slowest month which it means it’s time to get a lot of the to-do list finished.  First of all though this month we’re running a 50% off coupon which is pretty rare so tell your friends to sign up now using the coupons holidays2009 .

So the to-do list what exactly is on it?  The first one is to complete our migration of some of the Hawk Host url’s to make it possible in the future to separate them onto different servers if we want.  So like how our forums, support are already switched we’ll be doing the same for our client area within the next few days.  It’s really not that big of a deal but it makes it possible like I said to move them in the future to all different servers without much of a headache.

We’ll also be migrating the Hawk Host site to new hardware as we’re going to need extra processing power in the new year for other projects some being public others being internal.  So we’ll be posting about that in the next few weeks and get that completed.  That brings in the other portion what exactly is this public thing?  Well sorry we cannot reveal that unfortunately until the new year.  I can however talk about more internal things that we’re working on which will link back to that public portion as well.  We have internal systems to help keep track of things like IP’s, server notices ect. ect.  Well it’s needed a overhaul for a while so that’s a big project that’s going on.  Once completed it should help us keep better track of things and respond to issues and potentially see trending issues much easier.

It’s not all about nothing though that will affect Hawk Host though.  We have been throwing around the idea of adding an additional script installer to go alongside Fantastico or even at some point replace it.  So that’ll be something that we’re testing this month and might be live in the new year.  There is a topic about it at if you’re interested in providing your input.

So while it might seem like a slow month to an outside observer in terms of activity in our forums and such.  We’re using this time where things are typically slow to get things done that we typically cannot do when it’s extremely busy.
