HA!

When I upgraded to the package we have now they had to create it!! Chances are they aren't going to give me 30 times more bandwidth for half the price.

I suppose I could run it by them but.....

Ok ok you got money out of me, which is more than rabble or enmasse ever did!

WOOHOO thanks Bacchus! :flowers

K at this point we are about 50 bucks short of the 750 package and I'm guessing at least that much will come this week.

Yay, Bacchus!

psst, everyone, we all trust Debra, don't we? I mean this could all be a scam, a sting. Planned way back, involving Audra and babble, and some others, to get us here and fleece us. So the perps can take off to some exotic place like, um, Kingston, and blow the whole wad on wild living.

I warned you, Debra, that my cut wasn't big enough.

UPDATE:

We now have enough to both pay the current server and get the 750gb package.

I think there about 4-5 more mailings coming so we'll see if we can hit enough for the larger package.

Though that would be another 157 so we'll see.

Will keep you posted. Thanks all!!!  :flowers

Well, if she does come here, she has to visit me!

I also forgot to send my cheque last week, but it will be on the way soon!

Unfortunately we were cut off before I got all my questions answered but I had a bit of a IM chat with the new host.

We have enough for the one package and it is no problem moving up.

So should I start the proceedings now? or wait till everything is in?

The proceedings would include getting the doman name changed over and figuring out how to move all the board files.

We do have the option of changing to breadnroses.ca as well.

Thoughts?

Is there any deadline? Or have you passed it?

I may be able to contribute, but I need to review my finances first and I don't think I can do that until I'm allowed home again.

really I'm just self imposing a deadline of about mid month so we don't end up paying more than we have to before we move.

And I'd like a couple of days leeway so I can figure out how to move the board.

And since I don't have a credit card I have to factor in snail mail time for the payment to get there.

My thought is that since you're taking all this on, it's up to you on the when, where and what it called. Just give us a little warning if/when it's cold-turkey time. And for how long.  :wink:

So this is where we stand now.

I spoke to a very nice gentleman on the phone just now.

Our account is for all intents and purposes set up I just need to gather the funds and send in the money.

There will be a slight lag there as I wait for paypal to forward it, about 4 days.

The new location will be http://www.breadnroses.ca

and their techs will help me with the move.

I probably won't be able to get Steve to help as he is on vacation till Sept. lets hope I can figure out myself.  :shock:

When I know that the new account is ready I will post to say there may be some down time.
