  • Rolling blackouts, server jumps, dns failures and other miscreancy

    We are bound for a new host, new server, new forum package and, eventually, new software.

    What does this mean? We will be offline, randomly, during the move. Nothing on the internet is immediate and a physical change of data location takes time. I promise you that its worth it.

    Upon the release and installation of the new software, you may have to re-establish your site cookies. The new ones will taste better and last longer!

    Thank you for your continued support!

          Are the cookies sugar free?

              nope. just got the next vB package processed. what a pita that was.

              its a slow process to change all of it but its getting done. every request we make has to come from both sides, then get verified, then get processed. its tedious to say the least.

                Wish I knew more about this type of stuff from an IT standpoint. Getting bored with what I'm doing now and need some more experience..

                  The server jump isn't done, yet.

                  The article on concealed carry ran earlier than I had expected. We will have to repack the database at a later time and go offline again. The actual move can take up to 72 hours depending on how your computer accesses the site.

                  Thank you for sticking around!
