Yea, I thought I was wrong.

Besides.....You do know that she can probably cut more wood than any of us and can more than likely skin a buffalo with a broken pop bottle if she had to.

We're not quite done, but the forum and blog have been on the new server for about a week and are running very nicely and very fast.  In retrospect, it's clear that we were overloading the old server.  The new one is a lot more powerful.

Still doing battle with the MSB stuff on survivalpodcast.net -- for the moment, that's still running on the old server.  With luck, we'll have that moved to the new server in a couple of days.

not to be a downer (y'all notice that I did not have an upgrade fit like last time?  I think I have grown), but I am not getting notify emails anymore.  Am I the only one?  Should I go back and request them?  Except that they still have an  "unnotify" button instead of a "notify" button, so in theory, I am still signed up for notify emails on certain threads.

ok. i verified that notify is working. i'll go back and look for your emails MS.
(btw, you wont get notified on your own posts).

also, check your spam folders and see if the notify emails are in there. since we changed Ip addresses, it might be getting spamified.

Hey, all:

Archer made some technical changes last night*.  We're pretty sure everything is working, but it would be great to have some extra eyes.  Please post if you see anything broken on any thesurvivalpodcast.com page.

Thanks!

Will do Mr. Bill.  I was online last night when Archer crashed everything.  Went ahead and send an email to the webmaster to quickly place the blame on him when he broke the internet.
