Over the next couple of days the site may have some glitches and periodic slowdowns. I may even have to shut the forums down occasionally. Hopefully this will all be over in a day or two.
Long story short, the way I had the primary forum database set up in the old site was "sub-optimal". I knew I was going to have to change it sooner or later. Of course, things always happen to go bad when you go on vacation - in this case the database was frozen by my server host about 24 hours AFTER we left on a week-long vacation in Hawaii Having the site go down is never good, but in this case it allowed me to move the entire site to a new host with a LOT more bandwidth and space, as well as update some files and reconfigure the database. There will still be some miscellaneous work that we will have to complete, but things should be back to normal shortly.
Well done Greg, no problem connecting to the site from across the Atlantic with a rather slow connection (1 Mbyte).
This site is really nice-looking, number one for the design. Now that it's back on the tracks, I hope it can be as zen a place as it looks.
