In case you're just joining our adventure, I announced in March that Lupinia (the hosting provider for this site) would be moving to a co-located dedicated server.  There were many reasons for this decision, including poor support from our current host, flaky email system, and a large number of limitations on the current site.  Due mostly to my own screw-ups, this project fell grossly behind schedule several times, and I wouldn't blame many of you if you considered this to be vapour-ware.

But, I've managed to pull through, and this project is finally on track!  The server arrived today, and I installed the new hard drives.  I've also acquired almost all of the software, I'm just waiting on an Ebay seller to ship the OS.  I'm also not going about this by myself anymore, either; LilPup and I will be co-administrating the server, and Fox_Cub will be applying his expertise as our network security administrator.

Here's a picture (click on it for the full gallery):



We'll be prepping the server for installation as fast as possible, and I hope to go live in early January, if not sooner.

Haste is appreciated, but not demanded. (i.e. Take the time you need; we're not dying without it)

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. Nothing but the truth should be spoken about him or any one else. But it is even more important to tell the truth, pleasant or unpleasant, about him than about any one else." - Teddy Roosevelt
