I know just enough about Computers (self taught) to get in trouble - normally. BUT when something is explained as well as Rob's initial out line of the problem and "fix" is so well laid out that I can follow it and see both the need and the VERY desirable fix(es) sufficiently clearly. Thank you, Rob.

It might be hard for some to see but I think if they just read over the parts about advantages we would then have at our disposal (i.e. ease of pic posting/self(Tradang)contained hosting of same, no jumping back and forth for our (most important) St. Jude endeavors, stabilized storage of our (equaly important) wealth of info in files, etc. etc.) that would be enough to motivate all who now enjoy TG in any way whatsoever to look favorably on the proposed changes.

At times like this, I so wish that I had chosen a more lucrative life career in my younger days so I'd have more financial security in my current life. Then I could donate to something as near and dear to my heart as TG/TGMM in a truly significant
amount. However, looking back, I would not now change my life choices, if I could. I am what I am, and have what I have, and am blessed at that. Luckily, others posting ahead of me have pointed out the thing we so often try to point out during our St. Jude endeavors - EVERY LITTLE BIT HELPS! With that in mind, what I consider only a token donation, in my minds eye, I still can realize as being of some help, and I hope others in my situation will do the same. Any amount is better than no amount!

Headed to (weak) PayPal now. Best of luck in the change over work and in donations.

Any chance at a fundraiser auction/sale? I have some stuff I could get rid of and proceeds go to help.

Or, maybe open up the contributor 2018 early and give those contributors access to the remaining 2017 classifieds AND all of 2018?

This, in addition to any outright donations, might add up more quickly.

Just thinking out of the box.

I am sending my donation to this effort as soon as I get done typing this post.

I have learned a great deal on this forum, and I am grateful for that. But more than that, I have made some incredible friends through Trad Gang -- friends that I would not have met otherwise, and friends that I cherish and that I now cannot imagine life without.

Fellow members: Think about what you owe to Trad Gang for what you have learned, and the friendships you have made. Let's all do our part to help out so we can benefit from Trad Gang for many years to come.

What have you got here 25K members. I would think a dollar a piece would not be too much to ask. Then even if !/3rd donated You should have enough.I hate to see a few take the load and all the free loaders benefit.

46,461 members. But probably half that are somewhat active posters.

Thanks Bud....but I need to reiterate....we are NECK DEEP in this....the Software issue was started BEFORE we found out we were going to be required to get another server....we don't have time for squat at the moment as we weren't prepared to have that thrown in at the same time.

We had been wading around in the shallows for a long time...and soon as St Judes was over we jumped into the deep end from the high dive. It's taking a LOT of time to try and bring this live before hunting season so we don't loose any hunting threads.

We will be making an announcements about the procedures as we get closer to conversion.

Many MANY thanks to all that have helped and are going to help us on this rocky trail, the view from the peak will be worth it.

For the guitarists out there, and those that already know of my involvement as a luthier, guitar tech, and recording industry technician, I'm offering up a new Recording King acoustic guitar that I recently finished modding and setting up, details here ...

http://tradgang.com/rk/

... and on the Trad Gang Classifieds 2017 Specialty Forum as well. But it's here as well, gotta do whatever I can to get the buck$ up ...

Donation sent. Any updates on this one Rob...I would think with the # of members we have we could reach that goal with only minimum donations really quickly.

Any updates on where we're at?

Rob,I had no idea you were a musician/luthier, guitar tech, etc, etc. as long as you've been my website guy (11 1/2 years) you'd think I'd know something about that.
Looks like a perfect little guitar, when ever these deals come up I'm always so out of sync financially, (I had a bad month for unexpected expenses and low sales)
