Organic Design has moved to a dedicated server

Organic Design has moved from a VPS with VPSLink to a dedicated server with eSecureData. It's an Intel quad-core Q6600 running at 2.4GHz with 500GB of disk, 2GB RAM and 2TB of monthly traffic allowance! The picture to the right is from this Google map and shows the building in Canada where our new server is situated.

Even though the Q6600 chips are desktop chips not server chips, it should still be faster than the quad-Xeon VPS we've moved from since the Q6600's cache is the same size (4MB) and the speed is 400MHz faster. Also we're no longer sharing our server resource with other unknown clients which can often cause sharp drops in responsiveness.
