Please Note: The upgrade is scheduled to happen Saturday the 26th!!! Please do not be alarmed if the site is unavailable for several hours during the cut-over.

Also Note: A full backup is currently be made of the old system. The performance of the stream/website may be impacted during this period. Sorry for the inconvenience.

It's been a long time coming, but I think now is appropriate to give you all fair warning that the site is about to go through some major changes. We are in the middle of provisioning a new server to handle the increased demands of the site. Along with the new server will be updated software that will require a complete re-write of most of the custom code we use. The upshot is that everything will be faster, there will be many new features, and the site will be much more secure. The downside, however, is that there will be some growing pains during the transition. I fully expect some features to break, some to be unavailable temporarily, and lots of bugs to show up along the way. I ask that you please bear with us during this transition because when all is said and done, the site will be much better off for it. Thanks for your continued support!
