TIST Is Moving On Up!

Jun 03, 2009 No Comments

Tuning in to SciFi TV is joining the Farpoint Media network of podcasts!  As a result, we will be migrating the web site (blog and forum) over to some new servers in the near future.  During the transfer of the web site, the forum will be unavailable and in “maintenance mode.”  As soon as we’re settled in our new place, you will automatically be allowed back in to the forum.  This should happen within hours, but could take as much as two days for your ISP to recognize the move.  Please be patient.  🙂

Thank you all for listening and letting us grow like this.  And thank you very much for your patience during this move.
