In the next week or so, I am going to be moving the site and all content to somewhere other than where it is hosted now. This will require a bit of downtime for the site as I migrate assets. The quality of the current provider's database cluster and general network speed leaves much to be desired for. I will be running this on 2 boxes again, one for the db + any other external services, and one for web stuff. This will give us the best possible performance and growth. I know lots of you have seem the "Cannot connect to db" error, and this will eliminate that. With that will also come a site upgrade of sorts. I'll be upgrading the forum software and doing a few other behind the scenes tweaks, but nothing major at this point until we can get a consensus on what people want in kcurbex 3.0. So, with that, I shall create an additional thread for enhancement requests.

Alright guys, I have acquired the hardware and made the hosting arrangements - The site will be moved to another provider starting Friday.

Not much downtime will be expected, but there will be a DNS changeover that could cause some issues. I will be disabling the site while I do the change, to keep from losing any posts during the transition.

I won't be doing the big version upgrade just yet - most likely will be doing that next weekend.

Whelp, look like we are going to do the conversion to the new software - only 2 small bugs to work out, so it is looking really good =)

Expect the site to be down from friday 10pm ish till sunday worst case.

Alright, site has been moved. There are still a few smallish issues to work out, which should be done in the next few days - but nothing that warrants keeping the site down.

The biggest issue right now that I see is that image resizing has a bug - I should have this fixed by tuesday or so, hopefully. Lemme know if you see any other major issues!

Remember, this is only step one. I am still working on adding features, but this will be done on another test site as to not mess up the current one. I will post a url when I am ready for public testing.

Ya, some things are in different places, but all-in-all there is a whole lot more control

I like the new features. Glad you've kept a quick-loading "basic" PHPBB2 board rather than migrating to vb or some other overloaded CMS.
