    Default I'm shutting down the database in about 10 minutes...

    To prepare for the move.

    Please get your last licks in.

    Moderators, you will still have access to the board, but know that what you post may not be there when I open the new server.

    We will be down until I test and see the board operating at the new IP address I will then open the new server for posts as it propagates on the name servers.
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.
    - -- The Buddha

    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    If you are posting now you are on the new server. It hasn't perpetuated on all servers yet, so not everyone is able to post yet.

    Thank you, Damocles. I hope the operation proves to be a great success.

    Well the old server still has the lockout on it. If you're here then you're in like Flynn...
