MOVING HOSTS! PLEASE READ!
« on: April 14, 2011, 01:42:24 PM »
We will be moving to a new hosting service over the next few days. I hope to start the process soon. We may encounter times of being unavailable, but that should soon pass. So bear with us as we move our home.

The new server has been setup... I hope to start the process tomorrow night!

Will give more info as I get it.

Good luck! Transferring to a new host is a hateful job, but has to be done sometimes....

Looking forward to resuming when the site is at its new home!
Cheers!

I hope so too...

So news flash. I put in for the transfer of the domain to the new ISP. This takes anywhere from 2 to 5 days... I don't trust my old ISP to be real snappy about doing the transfer.

I also don't believe they have their issue with the service fixed either... So stay tuned, we may go up and down yet still.

Eric

Great job on the move and restore. I know what you must be going thru. i have had my own gremlins to deal with the past week or so and its still not finished. I got a bad virus that I could not get rid of so I installed a new hard drive and reinstalled Win XP. Now I have the fun of getting it up to date, getting all the different drivers installed. Right now getting my printer installed seems to be the impossible task :bang: :bang: :bang:   
While I find this an almost imposibble task It is nowhere near as complex as yours must be moving to a new host. Thanks for doing all that you do to keep bringing all of us our daily fix of MadModder.  :mmr:

Cheers  :beer:

Yes it does seem to be much quicker than it was a week ago. On my new installation of XP it is almost instantanous. Great work Eric. I Still don't have my spell checker installed so you may see some new versions of a few words. :lol: :lol:
