Ditto - been my goal since I joined the site. I was going to camp out by the PO Box and see who opens it, but I guess a planned engagement would be more proper 8)

How's the snow at Breck? Been hearing all the reports of snow and been wanting to get out there!

Not too bad. I skied today and Horseshoe Bowl had some fine snow.

BTW, so you're NOT the cute red-head that's been hanging around my PO box??

Bill, do you pay according to how much bandwidth you use? I was wondering if maybe having forum responses emailed to members with context would cut-back on the amount of bandwidth that is used (ala Facebook or other social networking sites). I thought about asking about that awhile ago, but I didn't know if you wanted the site hits for tracking or other purposes (or if the forum settings would even allow that).

No, I've negotiated a monthly limit under the server contract. The forum doesn't add much to the bandwidth usage; it's mostly the photos, etc.

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat." (Theodore Roosevelt)

We are now running on the new server. As of 7:50am this morning, I notice some people (including me) are still being directed to the old server because their Internet Service Provider have yet to synchronize the 14ers.com IP address change with our hosting company. That will be resolved throughout the day. Those of you that make it to this server can use the forum and rest of the site content.

If you experience any page problems, please post in the "Site Problems" forum. If you're having trouble posting, you can email me via this page. I'll be watching the site today to fix any problems that come up.

Thanks for your patience!

I'm seeing a lot fewer people on the old server so it looks like ISPs are gradually getting the DNS (domain name) updates...
