    After getting far too aggravated with the fact that we haven't had any closure with the issues that continued to come up, especially on gamedays, I have purchased a faster server with much better support which should finally get us to where we need to do. We'll bury the old one and move on into the new year with a better place.

    Thanks again,

    Ian

    Thank You for your efforts, Ian.

    I can feel the type of frustration you must have gone through.

    It's a new year, a time of hope and new possibilities.

    I think we should all hold a board practice. Pick a time where everybody piles on, like on gamedays. Prepare this baby for the stretch run, you know.

    She won't have any issues now, I can promise you. I purchased this last week after doing a lot of research to make absolutely sure we'd be all set, and this time around it's a managed server so I have much better support should any problem arrise. I wanted to complete the data transfer last night but was busy with some family stuff, and when it slowed down again today I decided just to go ahead and do it then. So the board has been completely moved and the rest of the site is right behind it. Once I'm completely finished I'll be shutting down the old server so that I'm not paying for two.

    By late tomorrow night it will be resolving to http://www.patsfans.com/new-england-patriots/messageboard/ and then you'll be able to ignore the I.P. address. But for tonight this will be the address.

    Best wishes to everyone, and happy new year!

    Ian

    You'll say no but I'm sure many here would not mind passing the basket around ... it almost feels like stealing to enjoy a site so good all the time....

    I've paid for much aggravation in my life ... happy and for free over here!

    Seconded. I would happily put money into the upkeep of this board. We would need to think of a way of doing it that doesn't put pressure on people, feeling they have to "donate". All the same, it's a great idea.

    That was the goal, and it won't be a problem from now on. It was the biggest problem that I grew tired of as I know it aggravated everyone when it would slow down for no reason. Unless we reach over 1,000 people at one time and a lot of people viewing articles, etc, we should be more than fine now.

    EDIT: 517 total people viewing the forum as of 4:30pm ET on Monday and it's flying. Looks like we're good to go.

    I appreciate that. I will probably be running a "fund drive" at some point, as this new server is now about the cost of a car payment so I can't completely absorb all of it. However don't worry about it for now. Let's get through the postseason first to make absolutely sure we have no further issues, although I don't think we'll have any more of them.

    Just say the word Ian...were here to help.

    Perhaps you could combine some "Bread of Life" fund raising on behalf of Miguel at the same time?

    Thanks for your efforts......
