The DC-3 Hangar has successfully transfered to a bigger server boasting 20GB bandwidth. We are closing in on the 1/2 Million mark in visitor hits. How should this be celebrated? ..Anyone got ideas? We have 10 times a larger site than previous, which means lots of featured DC-3 goodies coming for the future. A lot of this of course is due to our new sponsor 'Ozark Silver Swallows' at http://www.silverswallows.com. We thank them for their support. During the transfer, there seemed to be no down time experienced, other than a glitch here and there with some of the links which I believe are now fixed. If you see an error, please let me know. If folks have ideas on what they would like to see on the site, please let me know. A NEW DC-3 forum has been created using the latest and greatest PHP format. I may possibly plan on expanding the DC-3 flight simulation section later this year. I attend DC-3 Ground School this weekend via the Prairie Avaition Museum, there are still seats left I am told, so if you are interested, click on the Prairie Aviation Museum link main page. Finally.. thanks for everyones support over the years.. this site is now with the big boys on the big servers which should make for faster access and a brighter future overall.
January 4th, 2003
Today is my Birthday!.. but that's beside the point. I updated and changed the main page for many reasons... To give it a more professional feel and look, but moreover, because I needed to cut down on the graphics and make the main page load much faster and cut down on the clutter, even for those with dial modems it should suffice and load much faster now. I also introduced some java applet menu's. I hope all these changes (I call them improvements), has folks pleased and gives us all, a good start to 2003. Comments welcome and thanks for your continued suppport. In addtion, I am looking to host the site on a new, bigger and faster server. I will keep you all informed on that progress. The site is almost 200MB in size now and more room on a bigger/faster server is severely in need. Ideally, I am looking for a dedicated host server for the site. This will cost even more $$ on a monthly basis, so I have to also figure out how to fund this site on a monthly basis. Happy New Year.. regards.. Trev Morson.
