Looking forward. Hopefully we still can rant about the Italian GP before moving :haha: :haha:
Oh yeah of course :haha: You will have until about midnight your time.
Knowing our luck, probably something amazing will happen during the GP requiring us to post for hours on end.

Good luck with the transfer, @PTRACER

Brilliant work @PTRACER.... its 2:00 pm my time now and everything is up and running. Or at least it seems to be. Just logged in and everything seems to be here. :twothumbs: (I tried an hour ago to see a note saying the work was done but please wait... an hour later and voila)
Thanks Paul for all your work and effort for what seems to be a seamless transition. :bow:

Oh yeah and I logged in and it came up with the subsilver theme I thought and accepted I was going to lose, so a bonus. :bow:

Onwards and upwards.

Yay! You could access this new site before I could :haha:

An hour ago, I was still rebuilding the search index and testing everything, but it all looks good now.

Regarding the subsilver theme, I still have not updated the forum software to 3.3.1 yet. We will continue with subsilver until then.

I just tried the Flat theme and it seems fine so no worries there for me.... I will quickly get used to things being on the right of the page rather than left.
Thanks again Paul

Cheers

I must admit, this forum has been zipping along happily without a single issue since the weekend. Anyone else also noticing the difference?

I have certainly noticed the enhanced reliability, nothing close to delays or inability to access for periods of time... now the pages always load quickly and without fuss. A great improvement. :twothumbs:

PS. As a long time subsilver theme user, having used the new one now for the couple of days, I happened to try subilver again today, thinking I would continue using it until its gone..... I changed the theme straight back to Flat! Subsilver just looks a bit bland compared to Flat. :mrgreen:

I've had hick ups very much the same as before the transfer, with the site timing out/can't be reached. When I reload the site however, it works just fine.

I didn't have any issues browsing the forum on the old server but this new one appears to have a faster loading time indeed.

Really? I haven't witnessed that. So is the performance still no better for you?

Oh, it is better. When I get the occasional time-out I just reload the site and it works again, unlike previous weeks when it would be down for maybe 15 minutes or so. Might be something connected to my ISP or whatever, but it's not really that big of an issue. It has only happened twice since moving hosts.

The new place looks very swish, like someone had a spring clean and made it brighter and shinier. Good job :)

Just one thing, I was told I had two notifcations of mentions in some thread about Nigel Mansell's cars, yet when I looked there's nothing there. I couldn't imagine why there would be, but it's a little odd so I thought I'd mention it.
