    Just a heads up that in the next couple of weeks SatelliteGuys will be down for about 6 hours as we do some system work.

    Our server has been running great, however its OS is now a real old version and its getting harder and harder to keep the system updated because of this.

    What will happen is the server will be backed up then everything will be wiped out on the server and the latest OS will be loaded on the machine, then files restored and we will be back open again. With the new OS we should also see a performance increase as well.

    Currently there is no time scheduled for this to happen, when I know it's going to happen I will let you know in advance. But wanted to give you a heads up of what we have planned and why it is happening.

    Ah, one of my favorite episodes of "Tiki Bar TV" with the "Duke of Url"... Can't find it in DoctorTiki's YouTube channel, maybe it's NSFW... Here's my copy, sorry for the 2000s Internet resolution:
