    woohoo! it took :D

    Now, DO NOT UPLOAD anything for about a day... as it is iffy where it will be stored, and if it ends up on the old box, your picture will be orphaned (ie, there will be a database entry [both script versions are hitting the new database, but DNS takes 24 hours to propigate- so you may be on the old server or the new server's scripts, but still hitting the new server database] but the actual file will not exist, as the files are store in the file system, not in the database)

    So, all posts are fine.

    but attachemnts, gallery images, etc, may be lost.

    if you can ping hondaswap.com and it points to a 208.x.x.x IP, you're on the live server.
    if you are hitting 72.x.x.x, you're on the old one.

    hopefully.

    I went to a new company with better tech support and a more solid network main frame. Those of you in Dallas, were in the infomart :)

    it's running real well.
