The forum will be going down to switch servers this evening at some point. The time will be when all my kids go to bed :)

I will try to give a 10 to 15 minute warning. It may be down from one hour to one day - just being realistic. I did a test run and everything seemed to work well so I'm relatively optimistic that down time will be minimal.

Thanks,
Steve

Thanks, Steve. 

We were able to change the hosting to a new provider to secure a similar cost structure to what we had before.  Our previous provider wanted to raise our rate by 2.5x, forcing us to move.

Other changes are coming, as well -- but nothing too radical.

Thanks!

Steve:

Thank you for all you have done over the past eleven years to help Duane keep the Forum up and running.  Your highly skilled work is very much appreciated.

Sorry... Didn't get it done tonight. I have a 4, 2, and 1 year old so its hard to schedule this kind of thing. We'll give it a go tomorrow. Yes, I'm an old daddy.

Eleven years!! Amazing. The reality is that I have probably only averaged less than an hour a year in helping Duane keep this going. I was wondering why he was continuing it but I understand now and see that a lot of friendships have developed over the last decade. I still can't believe its been eleven years, time sure is elusive.

  I'll chime in too. My three are 37,36,and 35,and I bet you have been told more than once, enjoy them while their young. They can be a full time job themselves.
     And yes, it is a nice forum. I belonged to it some years ago and just recently got back in.I touch base with this site everyday. It's like a nice walk in the park.
                                       Take your time. We just appreciate doing this.

  Duane,Steve,
  Thank you to you both!
  They say if you want something done give it to a busy person.
    I am sure that applies to both of you.
