Ron, I love this site, you, and our "family of friends" so much that I send up my thanks whenever I enter this realm of poetic expressions, kindness, and kindred spirits.

pipTalk is literally the home that Ron built!

I was a girl guide and our motto was to always be prepared ~ and I follow that motto to this very day! All of my 1,200 plus poems have been saved as I have written them ~ on floppies +++ ~ then each disk is burned to a CD, on my hard-drive, and all titles and dates of my poems are recorded in  notebooks ~ I even have files of very special replies that I have received.

Am I prepared for any eventuality? ~ Heck, YES! ~ to the point of overkill! lol I don't do anything in half measures!

May all go well with the transferring of data! You're the MAN!!!

Sending lots of love ~ and added energy! ~ Oh, and some soothing potions to calm your over-taxed nerves!

God bless you, Ron, for your care and patience of this great family.

The admiration I have for all you do for us, is mindboggling since I can't even take care of my home computer properly.

Thanks a million!

A bit more than 225,000 topics later . . . we're back.

This is a very different web server, with a very different configuration. If anyone runs across something that doesn't seem to work correctly, please let me know. I'll be doing a bit of exploring myself and will be keeping a close eye on the forums for a while.

Now, that wasn't so painful! ~ for us! Everything seems to have gone smoothly from this end! ~ and I only had to suffer from pip withdrawal for a few hours! Sigh! What a relief!

We appreciate all the work that you do to keep the PiP ship afloat! Ahoy there, Captain Ron!

Giving you a warm hug and a back and neck massage compliments of yours truly. Mind you, I will have to it energetically through the ethers! lol

WOW!  I just tried a "Search" and it is SUPER fast!  Wonderful Ron!

So ... do she/he have a name (Mario Andretti, Speedy Gonzales perhaps), lol?

Wonderful job Ron!

The forums are now running on Aries, Kit, a server formerly reserved for the main site. You've already met Aries. The main site is slow enough during the summer months that she can afford to share a few resources with her sibling, but I don't know how long that will last. Moving the main site to a new server, should the need arise (and it eventually will) is easy compared to an interactive forum with several gigabytes of data.

Aha!  I didn't realize we had already been introduced, Ron!

Welcome to the forums Aries!

It looks like there will be more room for growth, and the Greek God of War took over smoothly from what I've heard. Wouldn't want to mess with him, lol.  

Good job Rob ... that's got to be a nice relief to have the switchover behind you.

It took a few more hours in my neck of the world to reconnect and all, but this is one of the smoothest transitions I've ever encountered, Ron...

so Kudos, and all of the above that I left with you earlier today.

The "Search" system is remarkable in time! I always thought it was "my" computer...

I've not yet had to move a post or ding anyone for a discretion...but I can't wait!

You are truly the Lord of the Sites...
