The current company we are with for hosting this server has not responded to any of my queries for the past 6 or 7 weeks. That's why the hotmail/live.com issue is still there.

As the annual server hosting bill is upon us on the 9th of Feb, I'm going to make a full backup and move the site over to another company - one that the company I work for uses and is simply top-class.

This will mean some downtime. Probably Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th Feb.

Does that include donations already made pre-christmas... I raised about 100$ making paint christmas cards for donators... I could start a new one up for valentine's day....

you'll never see that money, safely hidden in a cambodian bank account

We do have money already in the donation kitty. I'll post totals later today if I remember

Post a total, and I'll donate. I have plenty of US dollars.

Well, the total required for the year (feb to feb) is $406. I've checked the kitty and we have exactly $408.28.

So, we're sorted until feb next year but donations are always appreciated so we aren't on a mad scramble to get funds like a few years back. I'd like to start the ball rolling on donations for feb 2011 to feb 2012, slowly but surely.

Right, did the transfer over tonight. It seems to have worked ok and we only had a few minutes downtime.

If you notice any problems or you hear from friends that they cant access the site, let me know asap.

Thanks
