Dearest Members and Visitors of our Little Fountain Pen Nut House on the Digital Prairie,
As it says in the title, we are back and here to stay.
Apologies for the unplanned downtime. Unfortunately, we had no other option with the restrictions imposed on our old server and its resource problems, and making sure everything we did was done in a secure way.
We are now on a server with tons of capacity, significantly faster and better equipped, and also easily scalable for a change if the need arises, funds permitting. BTW, all this at the same cost as the old server.
We would like to thank you all for your support received backchannel. It was most appreciated during the long hours we made to get the new server up and running as quickly as humanly possible. My thanks particularly go to our own Salman, who spent several days and nights setting up some very nifty and advanced security measures and generally assisting with other stuff. Without him, this would have taken quite a bit longer, and that is an understatement. I can't thank him enough.
We are back right in time to celebrate the New Year with all of you, and what a wonderful way to start the New Year for FPN too! Things can only improve from here onwards, with all signs auspicious too, with interesting new developments coming our way too .
Let's all relax, sit back, partake in and enjoy this wonderful community, which we all built together.
Finally, slightly belated, but hoping you all had a great time, with more to come:
Thank you all, and may 2014 be your best year yet!
Warmest regards, Wim
On behalf of the entire Moderator and Admin Team
