This weekend, Chris (of ShakerGeek fame) completed the transfer of PowerPivotPro.com over to a new hosting provider.

Please be on the lookout for any glitches related to the transfer.  I don’t see anything out of place, but it’s a big site and we may have missed something.

This will be the fourth “home” in the site’s history (WordPress.com, Dreamhost, Bluehost, and now WiredTree, for those who are interested).

It provides us with several benefits that are exciting for a nerd like me:

  1. Faster Page Loads – We paid for the deluxe options whenever they were offered.  Solid State Drives for rapid retrieval of our 681 (and counting) posts.  Plus an upgrade called “LiteSpeed” which I didn’t even bother to understand, cuz, you know, it’s Light Speed.
  2. Restored Reliability – you may have noticed that the site has experienced some outages recently (averaging one a week for the past couple months).  That was, and is, unacceptable.  Bluehost, you have failed us for the last time.  You are in command now, Admiral Wired Tree.
  3. Platform for Overhaul – PowerPivotPro.com is about to get a makeover.  Widescreen format, cleaner visuals, mobile-friendly.  You know, modern.  (It’s crazy, in 2009 when we launched, the current theme WAS modern.  But five years go by pretty fast).
