More Server Woes - and another update

As you've noticed, the site seems to be in-accessible every few days, and this seems to be increasing in frequency. Today alone it was down 2 times!

In the last update, I moved the site to a cheap server, and one of the reasons it was cheap was because they really provide no support at all. Well, turns out that was a bad plan. They are not helping figure out what is causing the sites to go down.

So, I contacted some people I know and managed to get recommended to another hosting company. This one costs more, but they have a full service package which includes support and troubleshooting for issues just like this.

I'm in talks with them, and will let you know when the move is planned for - although the site already goes down so much you might not even notice :D

Mike, I hope you're successful in a quick migration of this site to a new host, as the present state of affairs is, uh, painful. :cry:

Re: More Server Woes - and another update

If you're viewing this, the update is complete and you are on the new server. Thanks for your patience over the past few weeks as the forum has been up and down like a moody teenager!

Please let me know if you see anything strange, or if something is not performing as it should.
