FYI - the webhost for the forums will be changing this week. This may result in a small period of downtime, but hopefully not too much. So if you notice any issues this week, that's probably why.

Nice. Who'd you opt to go with?

I went with the one you suggested, HawkHost. I ended up finding a promotional code that made it $4/month - couldn't beat that.

Migration complete. The name servers have been kinda flaky all day, bouncing back and forth from old host to new, but I figure that'll all get worked out over the next day or so. I think I'm gonna leave the default theme for now - it just makes life easier.

Smilies appear to be having some trouble...hmm.

As usual, lemme know if you notice any shenanigans.

Oh, and some of the avatars might be hosed right now. If your avatar was one you uploaded to the board previously, then go ahead and re-upload it. If it's linked off-site it should be fine.

Did a bit of maintenance just now and got rid of some of the obsolete forums. Some didn't apply to our interests anymore, others just simply hadn't been used in ages. Most I didn't delete (as I didn't want to lose all the posts for each one) just hid them from view. So they're still around, you just can't see them anymore, but the posts they contain will still show up when you search. You know, in case you ever wanna take a walk down memory lane or whatever. :lol:

I debated getting rid of the food-related forums but let them be for now. Also added one new forum that does apply to our interests these days. 8)

I'll try to get the old avatars fixed this weekend.
