We're on the move again was created by Gary
Hey folks just a heads up, I'm going to be moving the site to a new hosting company over the next few days.
The reason being the same as the last move a number of years ago, the hosting company I was using had been bought out by the Evil EIG empire, this is a company that just buys up other hosting companies and strips them of all the customers and good will, moves the hosting to a centralised location and then moves the support out to India.
It's quite amazing how many big hosting companies have gone that way, HostGator was the company I was with a few years back. We've been with Site5 for about 6 years now and they were bought out about 3 years ago, the performance has just gone down and the support is somewhat annoying as its all bots and people who can't speak English.
So after a month of researching it's time to get moving again to a new host company, one I used and outgrew about 10 years ago who have since expanded enough to go back to. It's a bit more expensive but the support and offerings are better.
If the site seems to be offline, just refresh your browser, clear down your browser cache or wost case scenario come back in 24 hours.
Cheers
Gary

And we're back............ sorry about the extended outage it's a fairly large site by non corporate standards and it just took a bit longer to unbundle than expected.
Everything should be as it was, if not please post in the "BUGS" section thanks.

No worries, it does look like we've developed some kind of "bug" not sure if it's related to the move or just some kind of corruption but I'm looking in to it.

Gary, I've got a question relating to the site since the change over. In the past (prior to site update) I often used google image search to find topics on Kiwimodeller. Reason is simple. Google image results page is easier to quicky find something whereas the search function on KM often generates lots of pages which take a while to wade through.

Since the change over I can no longer find some KM subjects on google image search, others might have an icon preview but when clicked on don't load and just say "no input file specified" on a blank screen.

Will this resolve over time, or is it permanent and I need to learn new tricks?

It should resolve over time as Google Caches images and you're basically searching for stale content. I'd of thought it'd be ok by now but I suppose it could take a while.
