    Hello Everyone,

    Thank you for your patience regarding the upgrade of our forum and move to the new server. It appears as though we will be moving tomorrow and/or Tuesday. I spoke with my support folk and they've assured me of this time frame. If I don't get it I will be one crazy Black Sistah! ... hehehe ... nawww ... for real though, they've been wonderful to me.

    Now I'm going to try to explain what has to happen:

    1. support says they are ready to move the database
    2. i will disable this forum - you will not be able to read or write to it.
    3. the database will be moved to the new server
    4. i will update dns information so that points to the new server
    5. once that info has updated, the forum will be up. this could take 24-48 hours ... but usually requires about 12. This will be the downtime we experience.

    The only areas on that will experience any down time are the forums. This is because I don't want any posts added after I move the database to the server, allowing us to pick up right where we left off.

    Keep in mind that we do have to hang out in during the downtime.

    If you have any questions just ask.
