    Please read the new Announcement - Future (Short) Forum Downtime Expected

    To make a long story short, due to renewing web hosting, the forum will be down temporarily sometime within the week. In order to transfer the forum, I will have to close this forum to activity, export the database, import the database on the new host and then have the hosting provider switch servers. Hopefully, the downtime will not be longer than an hour.

    At this time, I do not have a particular time frame in mind. Just remember if you try to get to the forum and can't, give it an hour or two. Sorry for any future inconvenience, but since it is going to save me over $200, I think it is worth it.

    And we're back! The forum migration went very smoothly, all things considered.

    Great! Site migration can be a pain in the ass.

    It certainly can be. I tried to make sure I had everything taken care of in advance that I could. We were down for about 45 minutes, but about 15 of that was me waiting on an e-mail that never came because the support person I got didn't know what they were doing. All in all, it was a pretty quick migration.

    And I saved over $200 doing it this way, so everyone wins.
