We are currently using the new Host database and eventually everyone will be using the files on the new host server.  We just switched DNS settings so that 4fxearth.net is officially hosted with the new host.  But it could take up to 48 hours for the changes to be registered around the world, so some may be using files on the old host while others on the new...

This shouldn't affect anyone though.  The change should be totally transparent to everyone.  Hopefully this will prove to be a painless move for everyone...

If you notice any new problems no matter how small, please let us know so that I can try to fix them...

You 'da MAN, Nightrider!
You 'da MAN!


I just had to log in and all seems to be as usual. There's a little goofyness in the marked-read dots but that's about all. We've even got the great little favicon back! What's half of 27¢? And where's that PayPal page?

Things seem to be a little faster too!

If you're talking about the blue dots that appear to the left of only your posts , I experienced this but....as soon as I logged in they returned.  This had happened several times while using the other host.  Logging in seems to clear that up.

That didn't go as smoothly or quick as I thought it would.  It really has worn me out.  There seems to be some intermittent outages and hesitation that I'm hoping will go away within the next few days.  Hopefully this won't adversely affect anyone too badly...

Do you think it's a bit faster, about the same, or slower???

So far it's been about the same for me. The index page loads much slower than the other pages, which do load quickly.

The DNS change happened in mid-post. I'd just hit the Submit button, and the page came up in default colors and I was no longer logged in. I did notice the changed forum name, and knew immediately what had happened.

I'm sorry the switch hit you at the worst moment bigR.  Were you able to click on the back button in your browser so that you didn't lose your message???

I've noticed a few login problems but hopefully those will iron themselves out as the domain propagates around the planet...

Had to sign in just now, but the index page is still taking a while to load. Around 17 seconds this time. Will give it a day or two to settle and let you know.

NR, this afternoon when I  clicked on the Message  Rec'd  notice on Yahoo, a Waning Box apeared that said,   "viruses ,etc could be encountered when I click on rb's website now... Confused

I wanted to  copy the warning  box but it would not let me  devil1

It appears every time in spite that I clicked on "do not show this message again...  Brick wall  It serves as an annoyance only...

Is there any way to get rid of  the warning mesage box or am I stuck...?

I could  start a new e-mail address for here if so.  dontknow

IT is stil very slow when  submitting & especially for after editing...
