** Some Changes Coming **
« on: November 04, 2019, 09:08:12 PM »
One thing I didn't get into back when we were having access problems is that our host is discontinuing the Web plan that we currently have with them and I've signed up for a new plan. That means moving to a new server. And we all know how that went back when they switched us in 2017. However, I've been assured by someone at the company that I have great faith in that this time will be very different because back then the switch was automated because they switched hundreds of customers - this time the switch will be done by an actual human who will make sure everything goes smoothly.

At the moment the switch is scheduled to take place sometime tomorrow. And the forum may be down for a few hours afterward as everything gets sorted out on the new server, so don't be surprised if it is down for a bit. But we should be back much sooner than later...

Yahoo has begun fazing out its message boards.  It has announced that not only members of boards will no longer be able to post pics or videos, all files of pics and videos in groups will be wiped out. 

This has become an internet plague.  Many have opined it's because so much has switched to worthless "social media" like fazebook, nitwitter, slapcrap and instaschit.  Servers no longer want to spend money for people to communicate who won't use "social media" (like me).

All I can think of is the SUSPENSE I will endure wondering just what demand Nathan will make next of Willie in the comic book... and how much more clothing Nathan might shed!

I hope it all goes smoothly MB! Thank you for all that you do to make this space available and updated for us!!!

cheers, Gothick
