    I don't know but I wish back the "old times" here. Changes every week, out of service at least twice a week, server fully booked...I don't know...
    am I impatient or what do you think?

    Dominik-
    Give it a little time. I think we all have to wait it out and see what happens. I'm going to try to have a positive attitude. I think it's just part of the growing pains.

    You are impatient.
    SO AM I !!!!
    "Server is too busy at the moment", when there are only 4 people visiting the site.:confused:
    Often I can't bring up the site at all.
    Many times, it takes an eternity to move around the forum discussion area.
    I know there are changes being made.
    I'll try to be optimistic.................................

    The server is busy with 300+ on the site, not with 3.

    Things are going to be spotty for the next week or so.

    I am preparing a new server for the forum, at the same time I'm trying to fix as many of the config problems as I can.

    You can even still talk about your penis. you just may have to talk to yourself for a little while.

    Part of withdrawal is testiness and impatience.

    Rob, I suggest you appoint Mme. Zora as moderator of the LPSG-Server-change twelve step program.

    ________________________________________________-

    When I was on the main Forum Discussion page, I scrolled down to the What's Going On heading. Below that is the Currently Active Users sub-heading. There were 4 names listed. That is what I was referring to.

    Rob, you could prevent a lot of bitching and whining by warning members BEFORE you take action. This is intended as constructive criticism.

    We enjoy visiting this site, and supporting it financially as well as contributing to its content. When I am unable to access the site for no apparent reason, then I am unable to maneuver around the site for no apparent reason, it should be no surprise that I would lose patience.

    I am not the enemy.

    It has been frustrating to get the "server down" message. But in the meantime, I guess I could just go back to doing my work (since that's where I'm at...).

    Besides, now I can type faster using both hands...

    Yeah, this sure lets me know how pathetic my life really is!

    Rob, I appreciated that you left messages up to let us know what was going on. Some of our members are bitching because we have no real lives, don't take us too seriously. We'll stick around, it's not like we have somewhere else to go!

    FBAnder, good luck with your site, but it is somewhat crass to advertise for it on a thread about difficulties in adjustments with the current change-over. If you aren't trying to steal membership, then don't.

    Madame Zora -
    Do you work out of the house, or are you confined to a cubicle somewhere?

    Guys - things like this really do take some time. I'm sure we'll all see an improvement from the hard work that Rob is putting in when it's all said and done.

    In the mean time, sit back, have a hot cup of coffee or cocoa, send out your Christmas cards, fill out a crossword puzzle, give yourself that much needed pedicure and enjoy life outside the computer. It'll all be up and running like the "good ol' days" soon enough.;)

    I wasn't trying to insult you, please don't take it that way. What you saw was an anomaly. I'm happy that this place get's such high traffic.

    I will post a warning in the announcement forum in the future when the site has to go down for maintainence. I think I have corrected most of the problems.

    Moreover, I have purchased a new server for the forum. It's a decent machine and will be dedicated to LPSG. It's just taking some time to get it hardened and set up before I will move the forum to its new, permanent, home.

    Please bear with me, I promise it will be worth it.
