New AAC Server


This web site will be moved to a new, more reliable and faster server tonight (Wednesday over to Thursday. If all goes well, we should only be down for a few minutes. But that’s like saying that if all goes well my new marine electronic system will work perfectly right out of the box.

Anyway, if you see any problems with the site after the transfer, please be patient and also tell us about what’s not working well for you.

A big thank you to our members for making this improvement possible.

    I hope the guy in the picture isn’t your server person. This one looks flummoxed over a couple of ethernet patch cords 🙂

      Hi Richard,

      And our server is one of a huge array of rack servers at Pair Networks.
