  • If you’ve visited my free site, you’ll no doubt notice that I’m redirecting traffic to this server instead of the copy of the member’s gallery at All new accounts are now created on this machine first, and the changes are instantly mirrored on the other server (which you may still browse for the time being). All credit card transactions will now be handled on my new secure server, and will no longer go through Ibill. Besides the fact that I can now make the signup process appear more seamless with the rest of my site (and hopefully more user friendly), this arrangement also means I will make an extra $3 on every new membership (from a processing fee that used to go to Ibill).
    The coolness doesn’t stop there. My secure server will have a password protected directory just for DB Members and there you will find a form which will allow you to add a year to your membership (but only if you already have less than a year remaining). This “extra year” will be at a discounted rate, because I want to pass on my savings to you. What kind of discount would you like to see? Drop me a line and share your thoughts.
  • The comments on the new dedicated server login page have been rather positve, so I guess it stays. I’ve rendered a desktop sized version which you can use if you are so inclined. It’s called (appropriately, I guess) “Login” and it’s available in the Interiors gallery and the WIP. Is your login not working on the dedicated machine? Click here.
