    I plan on upgrading our current dedicated CK5 server within the next couple of weeks, I will let everyone know when the time gets closer.

    This is something I have wanted to do for a while but couldn't do, due to pricing, to make a long story short the server we are moving to came down in price about $600.00 per month about 6 months ago or so, not "to" 600.00 per month but 600.00 per month "less" than it was which is only now 25.00 per month more than our current server. Got to love competition in the hosting industry. :D

    It will cost a bit for setup but for the speed increase and bandwidth allowable etc. for only 25.00 more a month, I would be crazy not to do it, especially when we had a few hardware problems last year.

    This new dedicated server will be way over kill for a few years but isn't that how we build our trucks. :pimp1:

    I plan on investing a lot this year in software and hardware which I have allready started to do, so we can keep CK5 the best there is, thanks to all who continue to support it and keep it strong.

    I actually have 2 memberships. Thanks for all of the time that you put forth to provide us with such a great forum. Will there be anything lost during the switch?

    Donations for the new server?

    Any thought on starting a "Collection" to help support this? Maybe $10.00 donation to help with cost. I love this site and would have no problem donating 10 bucks to help make it better.:thumb:
