    Traffic has grown so fast that today I am upgrading the server capacity.

    I'll try hard to keep up with this need as we grow and never let cost be a reason to procrastinate.

    Cool! It's good to need an expense like that for that reason.

    I know there's a lot of sites that wish they had the same "problem of needing to upgrade because of traffic".:rolleyes::):rolleyes:

    When you started this site did you think it would catch on so well? What made you decide to start this site anyway?

    Andrew? Should I post a little less frequently?:D

    Way to go Len, A blind hog stumbles onto an acorn once in awhile.:) You started with a very nifty acorn. Still miss Ian though.

    You have a nice liiving room!!!!

    Some of us were frustrated on another site. If we posted enthusiastically about our long range exploits, others would just hammer us.

    So finally, in April of 2001, I started this site just to have a sanctuary for long range hunters.

    And, no, I never dreamed it would catch on like it has.

    Thanks so much to all of you for your support over those years.

    I am sorry you guys got beat up but more so I'm glad. Without this place I don't know if I would have taken as much interest. The other sites I've visited seem to have a lot of hostile members. Not here though, for me this is my internet home.
