    Re: Forum Server Move

    I am hoping that we will be able to move to a new server next weekend. Just have to get our ducks in a row so everything will go smoothly. I will post more once I have all the details worked out. Thanks for asking.

    Re: Forum Server Move

    That's great news, Jason. I've been looking forward to the move to a better server for a while.....
    I don't envy you the work involved, but I'm sure we'll all be patient while the forum's down during the transition.
    Thanks for looking after us and keeping things 'moving ahead', Jason.

    The main advantage (from my point of view) will be that the forum won't keep 'going down' all the time, as it has been recently.

    I agree wholeheartedly!
    It will also lower the amount of cursing my kids hear coming from me due to the forum being down.

    We have been having outages on the forum due to too many members. Which is kind of a good thing and while it is not the primary concern, I am also hoping to improve performance. Might not happen right after the move, but it will happen.

    Thanks for the offer, I might take you up on it. While you may think we are hosted out of my basement with all the errors lately, that is not the case.

    My dad is too, but I would not trust him with this sort of thing. While we are both DBA types, he is more focused while I have a broader background due mainly to my different sites using multiple languages and databases. I guess you could say I am a generalist.
