So the site started out pretty humble on a shared hosting plan. It became pretty apparent that this wasn't gonna cut it so I moved to a dedicated server. I didn't really know how much horsepower was going to be needed so I went with a pretty low end server. Now, perhaps you have noticed the site is sometimes slow and even down often times. So now it's time to move on yet again. This time I'm not playing around and am getting the beefiest system available by my hosting provider.

What this means is that the site *SHOULD* be super fast and reliable after this change. What this also means is that my hosting costs will more than double =x

At this time, the advertising on the site is enough to pay for the hosting so it's not really an issue, and as long as folks are helping to support by submitting their own information, then we should be in good shape!

Anyway, over the next week or 2, we'll be migrating to the new server. I'll be getting the server all set up with the necessary software to keep running all the nifty features we have around here. If you notice something broken, or not working correctly, please let me know!

The transition is in place and things should be updating over the next day or 2. Hopefully everything will be smooth sailing by the end of the weekend!

Well, I have got everything moved over now I think! I haven't found anything missing as of yet. Things have moved pretty smoothly for sure!

This new server should be much faster than the last and we should be pretty well set for a long time to come on this server.

Please let me know if you see something amiss and welcome to our new home!
