Title: Migrating Hosting
Post by: Sonar on June 16, 2017, 09:28:05 AM

Long time no post right? Yes I've largely extracted myself from the day to day running of the forum but I am still overseeing, paying for the domain and the hosting and keeping the old girl alive ^^;

Speaking of hosting, VentraIP have been very good to us. The outages have been minimal since we migrated from Websh1tty.

All good things must pass though and I am migrating us again to a local company that will be managing my other business domain

This might mean a couple of minor outages over the next 72 hours or so while we migrate and run some tests to make sure everything is stable. Your patience during this time is appreciated.

Thank you all for your ongoing support. You are the original Gunpla community in Australia and without you there is no GAF and for each person that still browses and uses the forum I am grateful. The way we use the internet has changed a great deal since we started out many many years ago but we intend to stick around as an important online resource, and history of the origins of the Aussie Gunpla hive mind, and lastly as a middle finger to the yes men and corporate lapdogs. You know who you are  :-X  :sorry:  :fyou:

Yes it would appear that although posting activity is a mere blip now, the rubbernecking is as high as ever. There is a pile of good info and subjects on this site and it would be a pity to see it disappear as has happened with other forums. Facebook may have taken over but it still sucks as a resource, having to wade through 32 shares of the same bloody thing day in, day out with the same replies to each share by the same people then 2 weeks later it gets shared again and off it goes AGAIN!  :( :( :(
