Reminder: Daily Paul will be down Saturday night 11pm ET

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the site upgrade! It went overtime, and over budget, but the new chassis arrives next week, with a lot of new features, and a lot of potential for further expansion in the future. It is also getting a new, very powerful server platform thanks to my friend and DPer NCMarc of Falcon Internet.

Thanks again, Marc!

So it is no secret - I'm streamlining things, beefing things up and preparing for Ron Paul 2012. Like I said in my review of For Liberty, this time he actually has a chance to win. I'm preparing, and making sure that the DP is ready!

While the site is down, someone suggested going over and making friends over at the DailyKos, as Lefties Call for Alliance with Paulies Against War. Not a bad idea, me thinks. My friend Dan (the liberal) and I have been talking about the overlap between progressives and libertarians for ages.

Finally, remember how when you were a kid, and your parents took you to the amusement park or the zoo and said, "If you get lost, we'll meet back at X location?" Well, I learned my lesson well and set up this alternate meeting location: dailypaul.blogspot.com. This is the DP's Emergency Broadcast Channel. Please bookmark it. If I run into any problems, I'll communicate them there.

As always, donations are appreciated: www.dailypaul.com/donate. It is not easy running this site. I know people like it, and I do too, but in reality it is lots of work for a very limited financial reward.

Thank you all. We'll see you Monday, on the other side.

Yours in Liberty,

Preparing for Ron Paul 2012

Ooooo, I'm getting excited. I just read your review of For Liberty for the first time. Yes, in 1 yr we WILL know if he's running again, and Michael you seem confident that he will. I've also heard from people who have had access to insider people that they are confident Ron will run again, but they couldn't tell me who they talked to. I can't imagine how insane his 2012 campaign will be. It's 2009 and i'm still eating, sleeping, pooping ron paul!

I don't have any inside info

like I said in that review...

But still, I can't imagine a single reason why he wouldn't run again.

He's been fighting for this for his entire political career, half his life. He's in the sweetest spot he's ever been in. Why wouldn't he?

Yes, 2012 is going to be crayzee!

To be mean is never excusable, but there is some merit in knowing that one is; the most irreparable of vices is to do evil out of stupidity. - C.B.

DNS IP Updates

Is the ip changing i.e. DNS Entries.

Some DNS Pushes take a really long time on some networks.

If the IP is changing can the current DP have a simple dummy page that says we are looking at the old DP and that we must not have the DNS push yet. With a link to the dailypaul at blogspot.

Will the old DP be reachable from an archive perspective ?

Michael Nystrom's picture

Yes, IP is changing

DNS updates seem to be faster these days, but I'll make sure that people will be able to tell the difference from the old site & the news.

I'm going to get rid of the old DP server, but the new site will have all the same content - it is all being ported over with the upgrade.

Keep your fingers crossed & thanks!

Michael

We are

supposed to have a big snow storm. For Va. anyway. And no DP? OOHHH Nooo ! Guess I'll be playing in the snow. :)

Thank Michael.. How much

Thank Michael.. How much over budget was this new upgrade?

Thank you Michael

Thank you for the update.

Yes it is a great idea to go to the DailyKos and make friends there Liberty Belle did just that and I will register there too.
