**UPDATE: If you’re seeing this message you are migrated! Thanks so much. As expected, we’re already seeing certain issues resolved– you can now get into your “members area” where you have your custom iTunes URL and the “no connection” pages should also be a thing of the past. If you do get any weird messages, see something broken, or have trouble connecting with any pages, please let us know on this post.**


Hi everyone, as you know for the past two weeks the site has been up and down. It became rather apparent we had outgrown our current platform, so tonight we are migrating to a new one. I want to thank all of you for your patience during this time. Many of you have experienced “no connection” pages, including when you’ve tried to access your “profile” page. This migration will solve those issues and more.

The moment we realized we had a problem Kenton and our new guy Ed started working on the solution. So here’s what to expect–starting at about 7pm PT (10pm ET) tonight (Wednesday) the site will begin the migration process. I ask that no comments be added and no TAMs add to the TAM Wire as after that point any new additions will not carry over to the new site. The blog should stay up and everything published prior to that point in time will continue to be accessible, including podcasts.

If all goes as expected, you should really notice nothing at all. Once we know the migration is complete, I’ll let you know in this post and it will be safe to comment/post once again.

I’ll also have the ‘Daily TAM Briefing” up before the migration time as well. If for some reason things don’t go as expected, this would be a good time to sign up on Twitter.com if you haven’t already. This is an excellent way for us to be able to stay connected in the event the site is down at any point during this process.

I want to say thanks once again to all Tammy Army Members as your support has made this upgrade possible, especially that Christmas Money Bomb you all did ๐Ÿ™‚ Once we get the blog stable on the new platform, the very next project for the boys is to see if we can eliminate the double TAM/Wordpress sign in for TAMs. I know it’s always been a bother, and it’s there to protect the podcasts, but I’ve asked Ed to see if there’s a way we can maintain the iTunes feed while also making the sign-in a one step experience. No guarantees, but we’ll try ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks again everyone! I’ll have more for you soon.

        We are now Tammin’ at the Speed of Light.
        (as to the whiners…if a little tech issue gets your undies in a wad, then you won’t have the stamina to survive the grenades the libs will be throwing at us until the election….get over it people)

    Tammy don’t sweat it… most of us TAMS are Tech savy folks…These are growth pains and frankly that’s great. It means the Tamily is growing..There will always be a few thin skinned whiners…remember dial-up folks?? So every once in a while when a web site goes wonky let’s not get goofy… The up Time is 99.9 percent by my calcs…that’s better than most Banks..Thanks for the upgrade Tammy, I know it is frustrating..particularly for alpha perfectionist talk show host…who could that be?..:), Tim

  3. Hey there! Nice server you have:) It loads so fast I can now easily save 10 minutes a day while droning back and forth to check for updates;) This is just the kind of break I need to kick my productivity level into high gear! Life is a bit sweeter today. Thank you!

    WoW!! I can’t believe how fast the site is now! It was so slow before that I did not visit it very often (frustrated impatience). Thank you Kenton and Eddie (?) for all the hard work. And thank, Thank you Tammy for having it done. It was a pleasure coming to your site this morning =)

    i am in support of border security. it defines us as a nation. my biggest concern is whether TAM migration is a euphemism for backdoor amnesty. wait, blog migration isn’t about illegal aliens? never mind.

    Tipping my hat to Kenton, Ed and everyone involved. Congratulations on the successful migration, gents! Thanks to Tammy for making this investment.

    I’ve managed site deployments & upgrades before and pulled a few all-nighters when they’ve gone off the rails and melted down. It’s not easy.

    Dropping a few whiners and their negativity from the rolls probably made the site faster too *smirk*

  10. Tombstone Tony says:

    Nicely done – no problems here – thanks for thinking it through and executing well!

  11. Kat says:

    Kenton and Ed…YOU ROCK!Thank you for all of your hard work! Gina….thanks for the “last pass” tip, you ROCK too! It all worked together perfectly (smooth as a shot of aged Kentucky Bourbon) :D!
    Tammy…..well….you just ROCK!!!
    Love y’all!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My entire life is full of glitches …no big deal at all..Glad everything is running better for you, I would have waited for as long as it took.

  17. Chuck says:

    Definitely a great improvement in speed! Thank you Tammy and your tech gurus for taking the time to make this possible.

  18. Trish S says:

    Thanks Kenton, Ed, Gina and Tammy! The site is terrific! The TAMily is that and more! (all for the low low price of a nonfat tall latte, or tea ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. mzsuz says:

    Thanks Tammy for responding to the problem so fast and thanks to all the Tam friends that came so quickly to assist.

  20. Juanita says:

    Tammy, in case you haven’t seen the e-mail I sent, it bears repeating here. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the improved blog platform…..it made all the difference and works like a charm (without installing “Last Pass”). The ease of entering the blog and accessing all the links worked just like it used to when I first subscribed to the Tammy blog Aug. ’09. I’m expressing my gratitude with a small donation to defray some of the cost of updating and improving access to the site. Tammy, I really appreciate your response to subscribers’ concerns, keeping us informed and making it fun and entertaining all at once. Oh, and a hat tip to your team too.

    Thanks everyone- JuanitaDugas/Patriotichearts/TAM

    Love the new speed ! Outstanding! Appreciate all the hard work. Rob

    Anytime you experience growth and improvement there’s going to be backsteps. Just consider these the orange barrels on the information superhighway. Nice job and thanks to all involved!!
