I just received notification from the company where I host this site (and others) that I have until Dec 31 to move everything. I'm just not a big enough client. The software libraries that are required to run the forum require a specific server configuration. I am not certain I will be able to migrate. I'll keep everyone posted, but this may be the end of the line.

The site itself will remain intact, in one form or another. It is the forum that is @ issue. The programming is 17 years old and not compatible with today's server software installs. I have intentionally retarded software patches over the years to keep it viable. The updated versions of the forum software have security holes big enough to drive a train through. When I move off this server I will have to experiment a little. Watch this space.

As to the video(s) all are on YouTube. When viewing simply click on the YouTube logo and you'll see the link.

As a separate note. There will be service interruptions this week while I experiment with the new server set-up. Thank you in advance for your patience. -- Jim

I was unable to get on the site several times earlier this week, I just wrote it off to an "Alaska thing." It happens regularly with satellite TV.

Sometime in the next week or so, the site will go dark for a day or so while I test new server configuration and software libraries. Based on tests I'll have a better idea of what comes next. -- Jim

P.S. Rich, it was an Alaska thing, because I haven't started messing with the site yet.

Re: "an Alaska thing"
For example, last night 1 minute into the 4th quarter of the Falcons/Patriots game, we lost TV for 11 minutes. Had the game been close I would have been screaming!
