Hey folks - short notice but the site will be moving hosts sometime over the next few days, we've had a great run with http://Bywave.com.au - but nobody thought the place would grow in traffic as much as it did in the last two years.

When I first moved the site to Bywave we were getting 200-300 visits a day and using a few hundred mb of bandwidth - as of last month we were getting 5-10k visits a day and churning through 5-10gb - putting a bit of a strain on the original little hosting package we were on.

So we'll be up n running on the new state of the art digs hopefully over the weekend or early next week - and more details will be available then.

What this means though is new posts and content close to the crossover time *may* be lost when the host switch takes effect - but I'll update when that's about to happen.

Slight delay - but we've now moved to a shiny new interwebs box - probably be a few teething issues as the final details are sussed out, but otherwise it looks all systems go. :)

tried to upload a pic, but error message kept popping up. follow the link above and see the pics.

Fixed, thanks.

Anyone else who finds issues with the setup or has ideas please let me know while I'm actively poking around the back-end.

Oh yeah, email notifications of replies etc still aren't working - we'll figger that one out eventually.

*just* got the notification - or the email was there for a day or so?

We lost most of the posts for a 12 hour period between about midnight and noon Saturday (Oz time) but that was only a dozen or so, including PMs as I have a couple missing too.

Try again, have also increased the size the preview pic can be to 740 pixels (was 599).

Ah - it seems a graphics manipulation software thingy isn't installed on this server, so until that happens it seems all pics will not be resized.

Received the email notification less than 5 minutes before I posted.
Get emails via my phone straight away... No delay at all.
