Hi Grant,

I am and the World has not come to an end yet (although with all recent
developments, I'm slightly getting worried ;)).

E-mails are not going 100% as they should yet with me, but I think that is
misconfiguration (and lack of time) on my part ... 

I experienced a drop in performance, working on migrating to more powerful
hardware currently. 

I started from scratch with UTF8 data, you will have a migration to do
probably on your data that up to now was not UTF8 ...

You'd most definitely first want to set it up in a staging environment and
work out your migration steps before you blindly switch the environment
variables to work UTF8.

Good luck!
