I knew I should've gone for a longer training queue than 3 days. :(

OH Come on. Things like this are going to happen. I have been involved in some moves like this, although a lot smaller in scope, and unexpected things happen. You can't plan for everything. I would rather they take the time to get it right than launch and have issues. CCP is pushing the envelope big time in this industry, and with that, come some unexpected challenges. My hats off to them for doing so. They fear nothing, and that is what makes them the ideal gaming company in my eyes. The server will soon be up. They have an amazing uptime for what they are doing, which is one persistent gaming world.

They're terrible at giving accurate ETAs on downtime, however i'm not going to hold that against them. Especially in this situation where a lot of people truly do not know what all is involved with moving not just one server, but a whole damn shard of servers. I would be surprised if things were actually finished and online today.

I still love my EVE, so of course I would love to see it back up and running sooner rather than later. But at least I understand and can accept what they are trying to do and what issues are involved with that.

Best part is that they actually took my payment at 23:00 UTC on 6/23 so they literally took my money in the middle of a massive outage... something just doesn't feel right about that.

CCP planned 6 hours for a complete move of all the servers to their new position, installation of internal network components, testing and putting the cluster back online. I don't think it would have been possible under perfect circumstances to perform all these actions in the given timeframe.

If you can't comment without insulting people, please don't comment at all. I understand your frustration but there's a polite and constructive way to express it.

Thanks for the heads up, the server is indeed back up! Login queues are currently in effect as everyone is trying to log in at the same time.
