    We migrated from a VPS to a dedicated server about a year ago and tonight we're performing a test migration to a bigger, better, faster server. If all goes well, we'll shut the site down tomorrow (Saturday 12/17) for a couple of hours and finalize things.

    You may experience some slow downs tonight as we copy files back and forth. When we go live on the new machine tomorrow, the forums will be closed for a couple of hours.

    Thanks and I'll update this thread as we go.

    So far, so good with about half an hour of use. Seems a bit faster, minimal but discernible.

    Or you're 3 sheets to the wind. ;)

    From my tests, this is what I've wanted out of a server for a long time. fast response at low/no load.

    We've been with Real Web Host since 2005. With the level of service we've received over the years, I can't imagine us ever hosting elsewhere. Our current server costs significantly more than $130.
