today is the day!!! after finishing pride and openair season successfully, we have managed to put enough money aside FOR A NEW SHOE SERVER. :openingbottleofchampagne

we thank every single member who has shopped at our SHOE market stand aswell as our online shop. along with everyone who has purchased a membership upgrade (SHOELaces) and supported us with a donation. YOU HAVE MADE THIS POSSIBLE!!! we can’t thank you enough! :-)

thanks to you I was allowed to finally go on a shopping tour. :-D:-D:-D

and this is what ended up in my shopping cart…

a poweredge sc1435 1HE rack server with two quad core amd operton processors, 4gb ram and – very important – two hard disks in a raid 1 system. this way we should not experience another SHOE crash as we did last year. ;-)

and this is what our new SHOE baby looks like:

beautifuuuuuuuuuuuuuul, right??? :-)

so now we are going to have to wait about 2 weeks for the delivery…

we have canceled our current server housing by august 31 since they decided to raise the rates l,lO….

so our new server will go online at a new place by the end of august the latest. however, I will try my best to set up the server asap and go online before that date. our new SHOE baby will help to make SHOE a lot faster and much more enjoyable. we know we’ve been stretching your patience on the loading time… but there is a light at the end of the tunnel ;-)

i’ll keep you posted. :-)
