This has been done to allow expansion eg 66 formal photo contributed by Peter Yearsley.
The 20mb limit allowed by freenetname is now exceeded and they wouldn't allow any more.

Also the reliability of orknet/mersinet for the scripts (Message Board, Visitors' Book, Register of discipline etc) has left much to be desired recently.

All the site will now be hosted by "Domain Name Sales" on www.staugs.org

Forwarding will be provided from the main entry page of the old site for the forseeable future.

The cost of this is 60 pa which I have met this year ( a contribution perhaps from Reunion profits would be very welcome in future years).
If this move proves successful in terms of reliability it will be well worth it.

Please let me know of any hiccoughs/teething problems during changeover esp broken links.

Regards

Peter
Your long suffering webmaster!
