    I've been told that some of you are getting 'server busy' errors. I am looking into the problem and will be making some improvements as soon as possible. :love:

    I made a few changes. Please post here if you see the errors again. (I'm guessing you will!)

    Thanks, Amanda, our hero! I haven't seen it as much in the past day or two....knocking on wood!

    I love the new layout.

    You know, this got me thinking about another site I use for my classroom (Librarything). They have humorous messages when there is an error. Things like:
    Sorry, I had to share.....

    Those are cute, Miss W.

    Amanda, I've only gotten once or twice in the last few days, and it hasn't lasted nearly as long. So hopefully, it's fixed!

    Well, I am happy to say that I have secured a new, super fast server and we will be moving in the next week or so. (You shouldn't notice anything other than a short downtime in the wee hours of the am. Watch out, west coast night owls!) It should see us through our busiest and biggest months for growth over the summer. Soon, I'll be upgrading the forum and adding new features as well. Oh no, there will be CHANGE! I'll try to make the transition as painless as possible though. ;)

    Thanks amanda. The server busy thing sure does get annoying. It just happened to me tonight for about 5 mintues. I swear I go into atoz withdrawal when it happens.

    EEK... I just put it to the test (not on purpose) and almost crashed it. I'm not sure what is going on so the next few days may be a little bumpy. UGH.

    Oh, so I wasn't just imagining that hiccup just now.

    My sympathies, Cap'n.

    Oh, no...don't crash the server. I would have severe withdrawl issues. I MUST have my atoz.

    Anyway, we'll see what happens. Thanks for trying to fix it.

    Sorry. We are back on the old server temporarily. I am moving the data to a different new server tonight so the "server busy" issues should be over after that. We're actually going to be on two servers. :2up:

    Does this mean Amanda's going to be mastered by two servers?

    Or would that make her a "master of two servers"?
