I've finally bitten the bullet and signed up for a new server to replace this old one. It's a monster with dual quadcores (8 processors), dual 500GB SATA RAID hard disks, 12 GB memory and 100 Mbps uplink to the Internet. That's twice the processors, twice the HD size, 3 times the memory and 10 times the uplink speed. We should be able to see a noticeable difference in speed.

So sometime in the next couple of weeks this site will be down for from 2 to 24 hours while we move it. We will also lose a few posts while the transfer is in progress. I'll try to give you a few hours notice before beginning the move.

Did you buy it new? CFPinz could have found you an older one for a lot less money. :clap:

I could have probably found a good deal on one of those old computers that used the punch cards. Think that will speed things up any?

Macon, Thank You and thanks for the warning.

I thought it was fast already. We're gonna wind up in another dimension with that kind of speed.

That is spectacular, Macon! I wonder if, in the process of transition from one to the other, you could arrange to make it possible to NOTIFY me (us(?) of when previously-read posts are answered or viewed? I used to be notified in that manner, but NO MORE! Anything that I post on Ranchers.net that gets reviewed results in my being notified of same - but NOT on CattleToday. It is necessary for me to search out any of the posts that I remember commenting on (and sometimes I forget that I have commented on some of them) in order to reply, if I deem it appropo. I talked to you when you were on vacation in Mexico some time ago, but I have not been able to resolve the problem as yet. I hope you can straighten it out.

Thanks, Macon.
