    Folks.. Let me first apologize for not giving an update before now. I get so busy getting things done that I sometimes forget to let everyone know what is going on.

    My wife complains about this as well so.. I guess I better work on that[​IMG]

    Anyway.. as for the look and feel that many of you came to appreciate before we switched servers.. It is just around the corner.

    In case you have not noticed, Brian finally got the forum moved to a directory instead of being located in the root. This was no small feat but he made it happen and I still believe he has a magic wand that he is not telling us about;-)

    At any rate.. this now allows us to install the portal at the root (which is required for some reason).

    This should be done over the next couple of days if all goes well.

    We will do our best to keep the outages down to a minimum and most of this can be done in the background while you guys post away.

    All I can say is that Brian has been a lifesaver. The last installation was done by yours truly and you don't even want to know the number of hours, long nights and days that I spent not just installing and setting up the forum and portal but also in fixing the screwups that I caused[​IMG]

    Brian has taken a lot (most) of this load and while I am trying to help in any way that I can.. he is making it seem really easy which probably means I ain't helping a whole lot[​IMG]

    Thanks Brian!!!

    Patience everyone.. we are getting there!!
