Sorry I have been rather absent lately... there are things happening on the site that have kept me hoppin'. You may not have noticed any changes, but they are happening... First off, I moved the site to a new server. I needed to split off some sites that were getting a lot of traffic into a couple of servers to keep the load down. Not sure if you noticed, but there were a few weeks there where things were getting kinda slow, and I just cannot stand slow crazy smiley So, I added another server and things seem to be running much smoother. I bet you didn't even notice the 28 seconds we were down, eh?

Second thing is that we were having periodic problems with a solid connection to our provider. Whenever it was windy out, we were dropping packets. Seems that a tree was getting in the way so we moved our dish out to the edge of the building and mounted it on a pole. I tested the connection for two weeks and we are now up to speed again. Sorry if it took a bit longer then usual to load a page. I bet you didn't even notice the 2 minutes we were down, eh? smile smiley

And last, but not least, we have been having trouble with some jealous people who found a way to thwart datacalls on our servers. I won't bother with the details, but I fixed it and things are now going to be much better. Seems that some misguided souls out there figured out a way to present to Google a bunch of pages of ours using different URLs. This has caused about 5500 pages of duplicate content in the search returns, and even though it has hurt the site a bit, I have reported the offending parties and cleaned up the code so this cannot happen in the future. I gotta tell you folks, there are a lot of bad people out there who will do just about anything to bring you down. But hey... that's the way it goes, eh? Nothing I can do about jealous people out there.

Anywayz... Keep it goin', folks! I have been seeing new users and some great posts here, and we all appreciate that. We are still growing and, to tell you the truth, I feel nothing can really stop the momentum we have created.

...And to all the bad guys out there... bring it on...
