    I know some of you were on yesterday when we went down for about 15 minutes and again over an hour today. The issue is with our host. It appears many others are beginning to have issues with this company so I am not gonna play around with it. I'm looking for another host and as soon as I find one we'll be moving.

    I've also discovered a method called anycast that will hopefully prevent us from having to go through the lengthy propagation (site is down during this time) that it usually takes. I'll keep everyone updated as we go along. We're now paying nearly $80 a month for a VPS and still having to deal with these issues. It's a PITA.

    Please hang with us through these growing pains.

    I blamed it on Obamacare. That site so popular that the demand is drawing all available bandwidth. (hyuk, hyuk)

    I did do an update yesterday it went smooth as silk. It was unrelated to that.

    I do have some hosts I am already looking at.

    I dunno if it's ape-friendly, but I have been friendly to the ape. Notice your sig links?

    It will be ape-friendly if your phone is WB friendly. :rolleyes:

    Lessee. I paid big money for forum runner for old WB, now I need a new iPad for new WB. Wouldn't it have been easier to pay me to go away?

    (thanks for putting up the links)

    Ok, I got the iUploader app, works like a browser, but would let me upload pics.
    Problem. I can't post text to WB through iUploader, and can't upload pics w/0 a message.
    :ohno:Smileys are fun, I'll just play with them.
