    Changes you should all know about

    The hosting company that I have this forum hosted on is having some problems that are, in turn, going to cause us some serious problems. I am going to be working to get it moved as quickly as possible.

    At the same time, I will be moving us to a different forum software, either phpBB or vBulletin, both much more powerful scripts for running a class forum. I am leaning strongly towards vBulletin at this point.

    All in all that news isn\'t too bad. What will be bad is that I will possibly have to take the forum down for awhile (up to a week, hopefully less) as I move the domain to a different company, install and configure the software and get all of the current posts and member accounts moved over. In vBulletin, everything should be able to be converted instead of requiring us to start over. Worst case, we start from square one :(

    Anyway, all I can do is hope for the best. I appreciate your patience as we try to \"get \'er done\".

    If the forum looks a little different....

    it's because I upgraded the software, XMB, to the new version as an interim step to moving to vBulletin software. The upgrade went very well so hopefully we can prevent the loss of the forum for any length of time. It will probably be down for short periods of time while I complete all the steps necessary to get us squared away. Thanks for your patience. :kay:

    Well, I may be the newbie, but I want to let you know that in the short time I have been here, I have really enjoyed it.
    I wish you the best in converting it over, and hope to see the site back up soon.

    Thanks, GoodSamaritan, I like to hear from those that like it here. That\'s what keeps me going early in the mornings when my wife gets up telling me \"you\'re up early\" and I tell her \"nope, I\'m up late\" ;)
