|Long Description||Bestselling author, Tom Clancy, provides us with an extraordinary series of nonfiction audiobooks that look deep into the art of war, as seen through the eyes of three of America's outstanding commanders. INTO THE STORM Into the Storm tells us how leaders learn and grow, and how they forge people, elements and forces together into a campaign of power and precision. We hear how General Frederick M. Franks, Jr. commanded the armor and infantry of VII Corps, the main coalition force that broke the back of Iraq's Republican Guard. Into the Storm describes the transformation of an army traumatized by the Vietnam War and the metamorphosis of a man devastated by the loss of a leg in that war. EVERY MAN A TIGER Combining a broad experience of all aspects of aerial warfare with a deep respect for, and knowledge of Arab culture, General Chuck Horner commanded the U.S. and allied air assets during Desert Shield and Desert Storm. He was responsible for the design and execution of one of the most devastating air campaigns in history. Never before have the Gulf air war and its planning -? a process filled with controversy and stormy personalities -? been revealed in such rich, provocative detail. SHADOW WARRIORS General Carl Stiner was only the second commander of SOCOM, the U.S. Special Operations Command responsible for the readiness of all the Special Operations forces of the Army, Navy, and Air Force, including the Green Berets, Navy SEALS, Rangers, Delta Force, Air Force Special Operations, PsyOps, and Civil Affairs. Together, he and Tom Clancy trace the transformation of the Special Forces from the small core of outsiders of the 1950s through the cauldron of Vietnam and to the rebirth of the SF in the late 1980s and 1990s as the bearer of the largest, most mixed, and most complex set of missions in the U.S. military.|

Well heck! We had another upgrade of hardware today and the process simply took far longer than expected. Sorry!
Yes, we added some more new hardware. To insure that nothing got lost we had to perform a full database backup.
This backup required copying over 70gig of data from one machine to another and this required a complete database shutdown.
Now this step took longer than expected but that wasn't all, installing the new hardware took longer than expected.
The good news? We now have new servers for both the web server and the database server PLUS backup equipment for both servers. The old equipment has been recycled into massive file servers and backup servers so we haven't wasted anything.
The hope is that all these upgrades over the past couple weeks will improve over all system performance and reliability. With all the traffic we have been seeing lately, the old database server and web server have been getting pushed to their limits. We now have some breathing room again.
Thanks for your patients.
