    Yes its true, after 8 years, PP.O is going offline.

    I have no choice.

    You all have made it happen, and there is no way around it.

    Thank you!

    In order to transfer the more than half million posts and thousands and thousand of members, I need to shutter the site for maintenance.

    We are moving to a new host that has promised excellent service and reliability; at a cost lower than the more than $600 I shell out a month here even without plastering the place with ads.
    I just hate em.

    So my goal is something more affordable, with equal everyday reliablity we enjoy now.

    But during the database transfer, the site slows to a drunken-packer like crawl, and I'd rather not having you wonder if I finally finished a liter of vodka in one sitting and fell down on the "slow" button on my keyboard.

    Join me on this adventure, I waited many months to make the move to the deadest part of the offseason.

    Maybe I
    can finally deliver the additional features I keep talking about when I am not maintaining the server all by myself!

    Thank you for your patience.

    This will start at 10 pm tonight CST.

    Any comments before the plunge, make 'em.
    They likely won't make the transfer!
    LOL.

    Thanks again.
    Webby,


    Judging by your last efforts at upgrades I believe this will go off without a hitch.
    I still say I need to hire you to run the guys that run the web sites that I monitor/manage for some of our military bretheren.


    Charge on my brother.
    ;D
    Thanks for all your efforts.

    Great news Webby.

    I hope everything goes smoothly.
    I didn't take you for a vodka drinker I thought you were more of a fine scotch or burbon drinker.

    I would offer my help, but I don't think there is much I could do from Illinois.

    Hopefully all goes well during the switch.. I wish there was something that I could do for you Webby.. If I can help out with anything, please let me know.. Thanks again for all that you do to keep this site going.. If PPO ever went offline for good, I think I would have a mental breakdown..

    donations.
    about 10% of contributions are from members, 5% is from advertising, the rest from what I do.
