    Forum moving to new hosting company

    UPDATE!!!

    The downtime has been completed. The forum has moved away from this server. This is the old copy that is now read-only!!








    In a fairly short time, the Wilders Security Forums will be moving to a new hosting company.

    The downtime for the move should not be that long, an hour or two maybe.

    The exact time has not been set, however, it may be done tonight.

    An attempt to keep this copy of the forum open as a read-only site, will be done so at least people can keep reading while the site is being moved.

    When the move is complete, this site will show that it is the old forum and not available any longer. The IP address will be included in case people need to temporarily use it in their hosts files while DNS propagates to the new server.

    More soon...

    Announcements can't be replied to. So I posted here instead.

    I hope nothing will be "lost in translation", i.e. the familiar look of Wilders will be retained.

    I wonder if the post numbers will get retained. I ask because I have a bunch of post numbers saved for reference, so if they change, my list is worthless. Actually the same question applies to some saved links.
