    I have the new server.... just need to get the time to move the site over to it. I will probably be starting on the server transition late Friday night. The forum will be offline for several hours while I take a backup, copy it to the new server and restore the database.

    The page load times are getting to be too long and I've done everything I can to optimize everything with the current server.

    Ooohhh, exciting!

    You're a sucker for punishment aren't you..... Good luck with the build and migration....

    Offline for a few hours :O I might have to actually spend time with the family over easter :facepalm:

    PS - what time (and timezone) do you envisage going offline? Just so we can all convert to local ;)

    Hehee :) Totally forgot about it being Easter weekend.

    The plan is to turn off the forum around 10 or 11pm CST Friday.

    Thanks for the heads up... now when insomnia drives me to the computer I won't be surprised if FL is unavailable.

    The server migration is complete and the forum is now pointed at the new server. So far so good... I'll be monitoring it for hiccups throughout the night and tomorrow for issues. So far so good though...

    One issue I've found is with the photo gallery. We lost the thumbnails on the forum home page. I'll update here once fixed.
