    1:30AM PST. Progress is continuing and nearer completion. The team still has two worlds that are in progress and final checks they are running. Likely still some time to go. Sorry for the delays all, goes without saying this is a massive undertaking.

    2:00AM PST. The migration is complete and QA has begun final sweeps. Assuming no issues are found we should be coming back up in 30-40 minutes.
