Growing Pains

Kathy and I knew last fall that it wouldn't last forever. Legends Of America has been set up on a shared server since the beginning, and this week the shoe finally dropped. Got an email from her hosting provider that said Legends of America is just too popular for what they offer.

Great compliment, but it came at a hectic time. Kathy's still busy trying to get her new Rocky Mountain General Store up and running, and we moved the forum to a new host today to get rid of all the overseas spammers and yah-hoos who think people wanna stare at skin flicks while reading about the old west.

So we're investing some more of the nest egg back into the business. And since business is a pretty big egg it self, we're getting some new baskets. The main site will be on a new dedicated server. No more sharing. Of course that means a little extra work for us, and a slight learning curve, but our new provider has all the support needed. The new forum and guest book are on another host, as well as the Rocky Mountain General Store. This should improve your experience on the site tremendously, with the addition of Google Check Out, additional international shipping items and an overall cleaner experience [ie-no more boobs on the forum].

We're planning this out as best as possible, with the big switch happening sometime in the next 10 days or so. I want to apologize in advance if over the next month you experience problems seeing some of the site. I'm sure no matter how much we conspire, we're gonna forget something. Don't hesitate to let us know!
