At some point today I am swapping over the server which drives the site, there will be a period of a couple of hours where I won't be able to tell which server you are going to be able to see, to avoid loosing posts I will lock the old forum. You will be able to post as soon as you can see the new server.

So it won't affect you except you won't be able to post for a couple of hours

  thanks
     Dave

Dave thanks for telling us but does the changeover of servers mean that every single present threads, posts and areas will be lost for good??

No nothing will be lost. I will copy the forum across. just there will be a period where there are two active servers and I can't predict which one you will see, so I will have to lock one during this period as otherwise some posts will be on one server and others on another.
  cheers

If you can see this then the forum has transferred over, so carry on as usual.

Any better now Karen?  It took a while to go through on the computers in our office, but it's fine for me at home.

seems really good and fast but I don't see anything different or new.. is that normal?

It was just the server right.. no forum changes except hopefully no more timing out... eh??

I wouldn't frequent any forum with a '4' in its name instead of 'for.'

What about helping sheep from outer space???? They REALLY need help (and possibly a padded cell.)
