    TFW2005 Up Again - On A New Server!

    Just wanted to welcome our readers back, we were down a bit earlier today. TFW2005 has moved to a new server, upgraded in every way hardware wise. One that will (hopefully) be able to address all the digital bum-rushes you throw at us in the upcoming year full of conventions and events. On a similar note, User Albums and attachments have been turned back on forum wide for those that had those abilities before.

    If you run into any problems, feel free to let us know.

    Enjoy!

    As I work in Godaddy's Data Centers all day dealing with things like this I appreciate what you went through doing this (Though when I do it it involves thousands of Customers and potentially tens of thousands of sites). Bravo and Congrats on the upgrade old friend.

    Google's DNS (8.8.8.8/8.8.4.4) hasn't been updated with your new IP.

    The site won't load using their DNS.

    "digital bum-rushes" HahA. We fully intend to be CERTAIN the new server can handle it sometime around April 28th. Noon hour I'm thinking.

    Does this mean the search function will be unlocked for unlimited spamming?
