Well, if you’re reading this, then you’ll have already stumbled across our new server and found that the site should be exactly the same as it was before. After several late nights, Brian Gunn and I have transferred 2.5GB of data and 600MB of database to our new home at DBN Web Services.
With a decent host and proper support – as well as all the toys we need for building a shiny new CMS-based website, we’re finally on our way to modernising the website. It’s my intention to keep the navigation and general feel of any new site design pretty much as it is now. In the coming weeks and months, I will be looking for help from volunteers to do some cut/pasting of the existing pages into a new CMS – if you fancy assisting us with that, then please get in touch.
However, for now, I think we need to pause and take a breather from the stress of transferring the site. That said, if you spot any bugs or missing files, please let me know.
It’s been emotional!
