Konichiwa to all seekers of appliance wisdom. I hope we've helped you get your appliance fixed. If you're a MySQL database wizard, the Samurai could use your help.

I got an eviction notice from my current webhost. The Abuse Coordinator contacted me complaining that the forum is using too much server resources. I'm "allowed" 30 GB of bandwidth per month and I only use half that each month but, apparently, if you have a busy site, like this one, they just don't like that-- they like sites that get one or two visitors a day so they can load up the server with 300 other hosted websites and make more $$. So they told me to shove off. I have less than a month to move. All this while I'm trying to rebuild my crashed computer... and run service calls to make a living.

Ok, nothing gets done by whining about it. Just wanted to let y'all know wazzup and enlist your help.

Moving this forum's database and importing it to a new server is a pretty complicated task, way beyond my humble compooting skills. If you're a MySQL database wizard and know how to do these types of migrations, please let me know. You can either post here or send me a PM.
