    At some point within the next few days, we'll be moving to a new server with more resources. Ultimately that should provide better site performance, but there are likely to be a few hiccups. The site may go down briefly, and you may experience issues for up to a couple days as DNS propagation occurs. In the meanwhile, I'll post any and all updates on my Google+ page.


    Thanks for your patience and understanding. This is one of those growing pains that should make things better for everyone.

    The server move is complete. Please let me know if you find any bugs!

    Unfortunately, posts which were made on the old site after the server change are lost. In fact, there are probably still a few people who don't realize they're on the old site and are still posting there. I can go back to the old site to copy posts and bring them here, but it's a very manually intensive process.


    If anyone wants to go to the old site to copy/paste from posts which were made today during the server change and didn't get copied over, the old site is available here:


    Code:
    http://199.193.245.247/talknex.com/

    However, when you go to that site, clicking on any link will take you to the new site, so you have to hover over a thread link to find out the url for the thread and paste the old IP before it in the browser.


    So a thread with the URL:


    Code:
    https://www.talkemount.com/f11/sony-says-new-pancakes-2012-a-644/

    has to be entered in the browser as:


    Code:
    http://199.193.245.247/talknex.com/f11/sony-says-new-pancakes-2012-a-644/

    Making things worse, you have to specify the page of the thread you want to see, again because links won't work. So to go to page 2 of that thread on the old site, you would enter this into your browser:


    Code:
    http://199.193.245.247/talknex.com/f11/sony-says-new-pancakes-2012-a-644/index2.html

    Sorry about this. I should have closed the old forum down to prevent posting there during the server change!

    All good, teething problems can always be expected but the move and the additional resources will be extremely beneficial in the long run
