Thanks to some thrifty use of spare parts, a bunch of reprogramming by Feuer Frei, and a twelve-hour marathon of work on my part, Epic Rock Radio is now living on a brand new server, running on a brand new OS!

While we couldn't migrate the forums, I've kept them running on the old server on a different port for the time being, so we can still access them.  Our "news" managment program that generates the updates at the bottom of the page has stopped working, but I only update that sucker maybe once every six months, so who cares?  I can just change to plain text and it'll work just as well.  :-)

In any case, you should see a pretty dramatic increase in the site's speed and overall reliability.  But, this is definitely a brand new setup, so there may still be stuff that doesn't work.  If things go wrong, send me an email, or find me over here on our new Epic Rock Radio Discord chat room:  https://discord.gg/sPnxKZK

Post here and let me know what you think.  Does it work well?  Faster than before?  Noticed any problems?  Here's the place to let me know.

Great news! Hopefully there will be no downtime like on the old server anymore Smiley Definitely faster then before the site is..

About the forums, should be easy to move? You could move it to a small web hosting company if you have any special configuration on the old server. There are cheap hosting out there for smf, like https://www.one.com or stablehost http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=1574540.
