Potential Downtime

I am going to be switching servers very soon... so, if RRBBS is down, now you know why. It might take me some time to do the backing up of the message areas, but I'll try to make it as quick as possible.

Hi, Rob,

That sounds great!

Please let us know if we can ever send a donation to help defray the costs.

Cool! What host are you going with? If you're switching to Blue Host and haven't actually signed up yet, let me know. If you sign up using my affiliate link, I get $65...

Thanks for the offer, Larry... I think what I'm going to do with the new server will be to allocate storage space on the server for anyone who wants it for, say, an annual $15-$25 donation to keep the site alive.

I'm thinking something like 100 MB for storage of music, video, image work stuff for use on the site here and for blogs, etc.

My provider offered me a great deal last May. I have been really flaky with them (too ) in that they offered me a dedicated server for the same price as I was paying for the virtual servers.

And, it is much faster than the current server, so I am hoping the performance of the system will be better here. I think the deleted userfiles etc have been due to the slowness of the system (because it was piggybacked on a server that contained a ton of other websites -- including those that I didn't own).

I have switched my sites PlayerTrack.com and BaseballGeeks.com already (still working on em, but the meat has been transferred), and PlayerTrack in particular is MUCH faster.

Same provider, or else I would definitely help you out there.

Have a dedicated server for the same price I was paying before... the pain is transferring everything over... and that might make it awhile before RRBBS gets ported over.

Hi, Rob,

That sounds great.

I'd probably not be interested in the storage space, but I would be happy to throw in $20.00 anyway.
