I have rented a new more powerful server to house the SOTW Forum and other Sax on the Web pages plus email facilities.

It is a dual-Core Unix system with 2 GB memory (double the current). This should provide a much faster access to the forum and get rid of sluggishness and service denial.

The change-over should commence in a couple of hours. When ready to move over the forum database, the forum will be closed for posting and reading. After that it may take a few hours for the new IP address to propagate in the WWW. When the SOTW Forum will be closed I can still display short message if needed.

Looking forward for an improved forum experience,
-Harri

Awesome! And pass the word to the other mods, I think they're doing an excellent job in an otherwise thankless task! Thanks for the forum!

Update

There were some problems in getting the new server running.
I expect that the transfer will take couple of more hours.
The forum will be available on the old server as long as possible. When transferring over, the forum will be turned off so, that there will be no data loss.

Bill,
has the new technology, called mobile telephony, won any pioneering users in the States, yet? :twisted:
:D:D:D. Harri, is that also an ad for Finland's own Nokia by chance?;)

If Nokia wants to advertise here I will charge double what P. Mauriat and Curt's Musicmedic.com are paying. :)

P.S. Check out SOTW Front page for our Ptrick's springermpc.com banner. Our sponsors and contributors make it possible to facilitate this saxophone forum.

I am also grateful to you Mike and all other Forum Administrators helping in running a tidy ship. And of course to the vast membership who is creating the content here making the SOTW Forum worth of a visit.

PayPal???

Hi, Harri.

I'd like to make a small donation, but I haven't got PayPal. I can't get PayPal from my neck of the woods. Is there another way, such as send money order?

Cheers,
FujairahMan

Hi FujairahMan,
I appreciate your thought a lot.
Frankly I do not know how the money order from U.A.E. to Finland would work.
In any case there is no point in giving a large portion to the messenger.

Let's take this in email or PM.

thanks,

I missed this announcement and thought I'd lost the Forum. I found it using Google. Glad to see it all back again. This is a very valuable resource and a great way to keep in touch.

Thanks Harri!
