Server Migration

Benheck.com will be undergoing a Server Migration over the next few days. Please excuse our mess!

The forums have been “snapshotted” as of 2-15-18 and their database already transferred to the new site. I want to keep them up as a lot of things still link there but I am going to consider them “classic” from this point forward, a new solution will be incoming.
