Will the pending Migration to a new Host be flawless?
« on: April 23, 2021, 02:45:26 PM »
   This isn't Rocket Surgery. We are only transferring the Forum software to a new HOST (provider of bandwidth).  Nothing should change, perhaps a little faster and currently our new people are completely open to all content.
   I believe that once the old host, reluctantly, lets us GO we will be on the NEW Host and good for a long time.

   Thank You @mystery-ak @Cyber Liberty and @BassWrangler for moving us forward for a more secure future.

Most likely flawless. But I wonder if someone could leave a trail of red hots for me. If there is a problem it will be my ineptness. happy77

We're still awaiting transfer of the domains. Current host told me 5 days, but the guy there I just spoke to says he's only ever seen it take 7 days. So most likely Saturday before the transfer goes through.

Why is this poll even necessary? Let the tech team do their jobs...

Folks want to know what we're doing.  We're on the new server now, so it helps to get some feedback on the glitches.

   I missed @Gefn this morning so my day will be considered incomplete anyway.

This morning the host turned on some feature designed to give us more protection from hackers. You may have experienced or may experience some strange appearance of the site pages (missing images, for example) while that transition is underway.

@BassWrangler I think you did a bang up job! So easy for me, even a caveman (birdie) could stay on!

I just noticed the "At least our servers aren't in San Jose and our IT guy isn't named Robinson" option in the poll, and actually laughed out loud.
