Since the site has basically ran without issue for 8+ years, I figured it was time to shake things up.  I'm moving the hosting to a new package GoDaddy offers that should help me save around $100 per year.  There should be no difference in terms of site operation, but there may be a TINY bit of downtime in the next 10-15 days as they migrate everything over.

Thanks for sticking with me!

8 years.  Wow.  I think I speak for all of folks here when I say how thankful I am that this site exists.  We are a nice little community of tinkerers and movie buffs, and I can't tell you how refreshing it is to spend time on a place on the internet completely free of vitriol and negativity.  I adore coming here for many reasons, but that is a big one.

Congratulations on 8 years of excellence.  Or should I say/hope, the FIRST 8 years...  ;)

According to GoDaddy, the hosting move has been successfully completed.

If you see anything strange, please report it here.

Thanks!

No.  The changes made will be completely invisible to the membership.

The change was in our hosting package at GoDaddy... saves money in the long run, which makes it easier to continue.

Had a little hiccup with GoDaddy earlier this week... but everything is resolved and working now.
