    Well, I have been awaiting patiently for the off season to change to a better server for us.

    I'm tired of waiting.. :D

    So I have put in the order for us to move to our own server on Sunday night(21nd)/Monday morning(22rd). They say the move won't take long. The DNS change is longer than the actual move.

    So if they site doesn't come online Sunday late night or Monday, this is why...

    Cross your fingers!!

    I will have the site backed up tomorrow morning so we should be good. They won't delete anything on the old server until we are moved onto the new server.

    This should allow us to be online a TON more. If this new server doesn't work out, I'm going to move to another server next month.

    Wish DBS luck!!

    Rick

    Well, like the chatbox says, Welcome to the NEW server!!

    The hosting company has told me this will suit our needs (with more power than we'll need). So here's to keeping DaBears online through all (hopefully a lot) firings in the near future!

    Ok, to add to the changes, this weekend I will be bringing down the site for some upgrades. I will be installing site software upgrades to patch the site. This will also add some features.

    It may introduce some bugs as well. So some features may not work until I can sort them out.

    The theme will be updated as well. Hopefully it won't mess up. So if you see the site looking funny, I updated it, and this layout/theme/skin is broken.

    Sorry I won't be able to let everyone know ahead of time, as I don't know when I'll have time to just do it.

    No worries, I'll be busy making sure we are up as soon as possible.
