Web Site Relaunch Update

I've been testing the site on the new server for a couple of days. I seem to have gotten most of the major issues resolved, but I'm still in the process of checking for any minor goofiness that might result from the switch.

The problem is that on the old server pretty much everything was wide open in the configuration, so it allowed me to be lazy in my coding. That's turned out not to be a good thing.

Also, I was having some weird issues that seemed to be related to database stuff, but I'm almost 100% sure that was the fault of the new host and not something related directly to the site's code.

I'm hoping to have LMM back online in the very near future.

MIR Cav

I'm finally getting around to painting the remainder of my Middle Imperial Roman cavalry. I'm not sure when I started painting these damned things, but it's been a while back. I finally just got sick of seeing them sitting on my paint table gathering dust!

Freak Flex paints

Has anybody tried these paints produced by Badger? I've contemplated trying them for quite a while, but have never been able to find them in any local stores. Would like to test a couple out before adding a ton to my already overflowing collection of paints.

Temporary Home

As stated in my previous post, I have lost my free hosting after eight years. I have now acquired a new host and will have the site back online ASAP. Until then I will use this blog as a sort of temporary site.

LMM going down

After about eight years my free web site hosting is going away. The plan is for the server to go offline by the end of this week, so LittleMetalMen.com will be offline until I get setup on a new server and get the site rebuilt.

I'm not sure how long the site will be down, but the domain is still registered until 2011, so I have a little time to get it back up and running.

Keep checking back here for updates.
