Well, I figured it was high time I actually got my site some dedicated server space and a domain. I also figured that at the same time, it would be nice to switch to an actual CMS, rather than my rarely-updated system that we’ve used for the past 5 years.

Being that it’s a new site with a new system, there are going to be some growing pains, I’m sure. Of immediate note is that there is no shoutbox. I’m looking to rectify this ASAP, but you’ll have to be patient. I want to find the absolute best fit for the site and our needs.

As for the look of the site, it might strike some as being kinda odd: red carpet with stucco? WTF? While it’s a decor I would never dare inflict upon my house or any house for that matter, it’s of special significance for alot of us who used to hang out in my basement many moons ago. It had musty old red carpeting, grey wood-grain baseboards and white-stucco walls. I based it on a theme I found on the WordPress site, and hopefully I won’t get bored of it too fast and you won’t either. 😉

Now, enough blathering on from me, I hope you all enjoy your new home.

  1. it’s good you finally got a .com, i’ve been thinking about getting one myself just trying to find the proper name is tricky.

    as for the layout, put me under the WTF section 😉

  2. Yeah, I figured it was long overdue to get around to getting a domain and a server. This way, I don’t have to worry about whether my own internet connection is up or not, which is nice.

  3. Well those colors to most of us meant we were home. Nothing more comforting. All were missing is a little shelf I confiscated to put my Kinder surprise toys 😉
