Recap. Moving the forum from 154 to Plus served a couple purposes and accomplished a few things. The company hosting the 154 server had way too much down time, and even when it was up it was slow. Moving to Plus has given us faster access and increased reliability. Also, the 154 name was never really intended to be a hub of otr and therefore was not the most appropriate name. So Plus has given us a domain dedicated strictly to otr biz. And the new name allowed the change to happen with the least disruption. And etc.

As far as the day-to-day on the forum is concerned that's pretty much the end of it. However, there is (or was until today) a lot of stuff still on the 154 site that needed to be relocated, including our reason for being here: the Vic and Sade portion of the site. So, while making these changes, I took advantage of the opportunity and restructured and reorganize things in what I hope is a more sensible arrangement than previously. Fact is, I had all sorts of things pointing to all sorts of places using different names for pretty much everything. I hope I have that under better control now. This is what I've come up with so far:
* vicandsade.net  <-- downloads
* vicandsade.info <-- information
* paulrhymer.net  <-- text (by and about the man, his show and its cast) 
That was the easy part. I really struggled what to do with the 154 site because it still housed a lot of otr files and information. And I didn't want to interupt the shared spot. The solution I came up with is another otr domain name, one that should echo the Plus name. In short, otrperk.com (perk as in the fringe benefits that come along with hosting Vic and Sade). So, from today onward, the programs formerly on 154 are now on otrperk. Thusly:
* 154.ca          --> http://otrperk.com/ 
Like the forum move, nothing has been lost (jackbenny is whole and complete, easy ace's write ups are still intact, and so on). Not only that but to help christen the new name, catfreak has provided new and improved sets of Duffy's Tavern and Red Skelton (and I grabbed his Komedie Kaper files too). And rather than try to reinvent the wheel, I've linked to jolly boy postings for other comedy series. And all of it with a new design, which, I hope gives it a distinctive look all its own.

Two or three details remain.

If you find a broken link or something on 154 that you can't find on Perk, then please let me know and I'll do what I can to restore anything amiss.

Most links have automatic redirects to the new site. The forum, however, will take a day or so to catch up with changes. This should happen automatically, so you needn't do anything to bring things up to date yourselfs.

And, most importantly, please update your bookmarks.

Thanks for your patience.




Meantime, I have a gaming site to relocate and I need to find a new home for the shared spot. I'll keep you posted.

I'd like to thank you also. I haven't posted to forums much in the last year or so, but this is one of the two that I try to follow several times a week. I really appreciate this site and all the work that goes into it. Hopefully I'll become more active in the near future, but until then I'll continue to quietly appreciate.
