Welcome Back!
« on: April 17, 2008, 06:48:48 PM »
Due to a hardware failure with the webhosting companies server we lost the entire site for over 12 hours, then in there infinite wisdom they performed an upgrade to made there service incompatible with our forum, taking down the forum for over 24 hours.

After much research the decision was made to migrate to a different forum.

We managed to recover all the users, posts, topics, avatars, etc....

All you have to do is reset your password.

Your patience is appreciated as we work to customize the new site, any questions can be directed at Geoff, Jason or Chris.

Sometimes I get the feeling the whole world is against me, but deep down I know that's not true. Some smaller countries are neutral.

the big question is.....should i applaud you all for your hard work.....or smite you for the sake of a good smiting?

 :D

seriously tho...thanks to all you guys and your hard work getting this pig up & running. it'll take a little getting used to, but with some banners and pics she'll be better than new. ;)

thanks again!!

Big Cheer for Chris Caswell! Saving all the user data, forums, threads, posts avatars, etc is a major thing when stuff like this goes wrong. It's very easy to lose everything. Well done, Chris.

To all AirSpeed users, my priority (on Geoff's behalf) is getting the banners back up, and then I will be working on graphics, fonts, layout, etc.
I'd be delighted to get your suggestions as this site morphs from a commercial enterprise to a community-driven meeting place.
feel free to contact me any time with any suggestions or issues.

Hey people, Kate and I added another to our family (5.5 months ago)  Madeline Anne... Cameron turns 3 on May 5th.

Hey Geoff, we just plastered HOT VW and VW TRENDS cars all over Camerons room, except for the 1980's VW TRENDS, seems they liked skimmpy clothes back then... I just pasted DORA over them. lol

Life is BUSY but soooo much fun!!

Wow, it's been a while since I logged in here.....  O0
I know it takes a lot of work to restore a site like this.
Thanks for keeping this site on-line!
