    As of right now I have the skin matching the current one, the home page is using the same RSS feed, the FAQ completely moved over (including the formatting and links), About page complete, Video page complete, and am starting on the gallery to bring it up to date as well. For all intents and purposes it will be exactly like the current site other than it will be pushed to an HTTPS connection rather than HTTP (SSL boosts search rankings so I am doing it to all sites). I am hoping to have the gallery up tonight if I have time and once that is complete I will swap the DNS pointer to the new server. We can add adminstrators at any time so it isn't a rush.

    Alright, all pages and content are migrated over. The pointer is updated and should start taking effect in the next hour. It may take up to 48 hours before everyone will get the new site based on DNS propagation.

    Everything should be working now. I had to make a couple changes to the gallery code and remove some responsive image code until I can find the root issue. So far this new server is a LOT faster than the old one and we don't have to worry about size limits quite as much as we used to (old was a 2GB limit, this is 20GB).
