Greetings,

About 2 weeks ago, our website SSL security certificate expired. Usually,
Renewing the certificate and re-installing it on our website is not a
problem. However, this time around, it didn't work.

It took a couple of days to discover that the problem was on our webhost
provider. We tried to contact the administrators, but there was no answer,
even up until now.

So we had no choice but to look for another webhost provider and
migrate. Most of the migration went smoothly except for the forum
database. We ran into a number of incompatibility issues, and for a
moment there we wondered if we would ever recover the forum.

The administrators at our new webhost provider were instrumental to
getting the forum back up to normal.

I apologize for any inconvenience this might have caused our members.
Please forward me a message if you still notice any problems on the
forum.

Best regards,
Lemuel Huang
