Over the next few days this forum to will be moving to a dedicated server. The bandwidth and storage required for this site is beginning to exceed what is available on most shared servers.

The move will take place over a few days and there could be some downtimes for this site and the photo page while the move is taking place. Please be patient and rest assured nothing is wrong. Everything should be back up and in place in a few days.

Interruptions on the site are unacceptable! What will I do during those brief moments? I’m starting to freak-out! This may cause the Earth to shift on its axis! I don’t know how I’ll survive such an impact! Doom is evident! What next, rain in SoCal? Whew, I just took another sip of my barley-based-bubbling-beverage and I think I’m OK. But you’re scaring Tom. All joking aside, we have all trusted you to do what is best and necessary for the website. And rightfully so as it is by far the best on Earth!!! But for us jittery sorts, thanks for the warning.
