Thanks so much for providing this valuable and well informed site. I am learning more by the day.

trxcarney450 what is TPT?

KyleT Its the same host as before. Same building actually. Just a better server. The IP address did change though.

Sherminator Who is hosting the site now? I haven't been able to access it at work the past couple days, so I'm assuming that the proxy at work hasn't updated the DNS look up yet...rather annoying...

herns Very efficient. Like the speed.

Great Job!

Did you go back and look at the "time machine" pages of the old website, I was laughing so hard at some of the stuff, ferts pages, diy reactor, and some of the stats were so small. It was all good stuff at the time but now seems so elementary. You do get a sense of pride for sticking with something for so long and I've never really enjoyed other sites as I do this one.

mordalphus Holy cow! It was quick before (but admittedly, it had some pretty bad lag spurts), but now it's amazing! Everyone check out how fast it searches now!

mistergreen Wow. The site is super fast now. The pages load almost instantaneously.

150EH A little person trivia that was interesting, to me any how.

I joined on 12-5-2004 according to the members page.

I am member 2,161 out of 18,679 and found on page 73 out of 623

To tell the truth I was a little surprised there were that many members that came before me but the site was quite busy when I joined and you really didn't have to wait long to get a reply to your question. I also wonder how many active members there are between me and the founder, this just proves there's a lot to do here if your a nerd like me!

Edit, yes definitely a nerd or else I missed my calling as a Statistician,

lauraleellbp has the most posts at 21,362 and Hoppy has second place getting just barely nudged out of first by 8,389, talking about "let your finger do the walking" and she has only been here since 2-2-08, but she's working hard as a Moderator and doesn't even get a peanut so we should all give her a hand.

Between my sign up 12-5-04 and the beginning 7-22-02 (for 4 days there were only 4 members, too funny) there are only 42 or so active member that came before me that I would consider old skool, fishfanatic985 is the oldest paying member but hasn't posted since 09 (so use the auto credit card payment to pay your yearly dues, not) Jart is the oldest paying member that is still posting, when I say oldest I mean "been here the longest", and lots of people will disappear and be back after several years without posting.

These are a list of folks I remember from back the beginning mostly that are still active and have contributed a ton of knowledge to this hobby in this order, KyleT, Pooky125, GDominy, fishfanatic985, Buck no posts since '08, Rex Grigg no posts since '10, Jart, RobertH, GhazanfarGhori, Wasserpest, Gomer, Hubbahubbahehe, UglyGenius, Raul-7, Scorpion, SCMurphy, WolfenXXX, Plantbrain, inkslinger, ValorG, unirdna, jcgd, bHarada, Scolley, AaronT, DarkCobra, & Church, this are the people who love this hobby and have been here all along (sorry if I misspelled,etc.) and there are many more new members that have done a lot here too including some Moderators but the list is too long in the other direction. So I say congratulation to all for making Kyle's idea work so well and thank you.

BruceF This connection is much faster for me. Thanks for doing a great job.

driftwoodhunter I have a question - maybe this is the wrong spot - but since the upgrade, all my pics in my threads and tank journals are gone, and I can't upload pics to the site's image hosting. I get a fatal error message. What's up?

Church Wow, I remember the site looking like that! I hadn't signed up for an account yet, but I was a regular lurker back then. I was an intern at a recording studio at the time, and when I got stuck at the front desk doing reception it was the only thing that got me through the night. That, and the fact that I was charged with maintaining the aquarium in the waiting room. What a blast from the past... it takes me back to a wonderful time of my life.

Kyle, you truly rock! This site is the best. I have an account at all the other "major" planted aquarium sites but this is the only one I spend my time at.

Robert H What amazes me Kyle is that during all these years, you very rarely if ever talk about yourself, your own hobby, how you got interested in the hobby or your own experience in the hobby. The site has never been about you. I can remember the early days of Planted tank wondering who you were and how you appeared on the "scene", and years later I still don't know the answers to those questions. Only thing I know about you is that you are a programmer.
