I'm going to take it that you got the matter taken care of, because I'm moving along at a nice pace now. Oh and marko, I just love your diplomatic way of putting things. "I'm kicking ass with this host". You make me proud buddy. :good:

Our host has moved us from one server to another, and we've upgraded to a 64-Bit operating system - unfortunately, the way things work on the internet it usually take some times to propagate DNS so some of you guys will still be seeing the old server and some the new one. Essentially, at the moment there are two servers for FreewareBB, the old one and the new one - many will still be looking at the old one but once the DNS updates across the world it will automatically point you to the new server which means anything you have posted in the past few hours and anything you post in the next 24/48 hours could be lost because you will inevitably still be looking at the old server. My advice is not to post anything of particular importance on the site until you see a message at the top of the site saying you are now on the new server. My DNS is still pointing to the old server as well, but once I can see the new one, I'll post a global message at the top of the site along the lines of "Your are now on the new server" .. until then, as I say, please don't post anything of particular importance as your post could be lost over the next 24/48 hours :)

All the more reason to use an independent DNS source such as opendns.com or Google's DNS:

The Google Public DNS IP addresses (IPv4) are as follows:
8.8.8.8
8.8.4.4

The Google Public DNS IPv6 addresses are as follows:
2001:4860:4860::8888
2001:4860:4860::8844

Both OpenDNS and Goolge DNS are fanatical about updating their tables in real time.

OpenDNS is preferable because they delete your IP address after 30 days offering much more privacy than your ISP.

Google DNS keeps IP logs for 2 years potentially violating personal privacy for those who care about antiquated notions of privacy or personal security.

check your routers documentation for clarification on custom DNS servers, it is NOT difficult to setup.

Just the new programs seem a little slow here in GA. Pages are good. I guess this is a little after the fact maybe...
