At the beginning of August we successfully moved all (5) of

evolt.org's servers from their old home at href="http://www.starkmedia.com" title="link to Starkmedia"

target="_new">Starkmedia to Ron Dorman's facility's href="http://www.csi1st.net/" title="link to CSI 1st"

target="_new">CSI. Thanks to everyone that helped in the move and

the subsequent setup and testing. Special thanks go to href="http://www.five2one.org/" title="djc" target="_new">Dan Cody

who has setup, hosted, and maintained the servers for so long and who

prepared them for the move; to title="Matt Warden" target="_new">Matt Warden who drove the 900

miles between Milwaukee and Altavista but also the 800 miles from his

home to Milwaukee in order to transport the servers; and to Ron Dorman

for the current hosting and maintenance of the servers and the large

amount of setup that he and Dan went through to get them all in

working order. Finally thanks to all of the members that dontated

money in order to fund the move. It is very much appreciated.

special appearances from Andy Warwick, Norman Beresford (no, he's not a

bot...) and Seb Potter.
