Yes, we're suffering through the transistion of moving our site from ISERV's 
demonic server, over to our own. The WHOLE site is recoded, with Flash and 
other goodies :) We've gone from a 15MB site to what will easily be over 5GB 
when finished. We've been coding it for months.

Good good good! :)
