Moving the web site and forum to a new server on Monday/Tuesday 31 Jan 2023.

Its currently on a Windows server and the SSL cert is about to expire, so thought I would take the opportunity to move it over to a Linux server with ( much ) more CPU/RAM/etc. It will definitely run faster.

I rewrote the forum code in PHP/MySQL a few years ago in expectation this would happen one day, so dont expect any issues with the forum. The rest of the web site has a lot of ASP in it, but a few find/replace sessions should sort them out. I can tell the web server to treat ASP as PHP, which means any external links to site content will still work.

Anywho, if you find the site is down on Monday/Tuesday, call back an hour or so later.

The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago, the second best time is right now.
