Hi Dave and Tom. 

Dave thank you for getting this site to where it is now, I think it is the best one on the web.  You gave it the atmosphere for fostering and developing the talent of all of us here.  We are also glad that you will continue to be a part of this site. 

Tom, Thank you for stepping forward to the soft and hardware challenges of working and operating this website.  We are looking forward to working, supporting, and helping in any way we can.  Jan

In the middle of the joy, I'd like to ask you Hawkeye, if there will be a downtime at all when the switching of the owner of sv will take place

Just a quick note to say hello to everyone and thank Dave for trusting me with his site.  It's difficult to put a lot of time and energy into something and then turn it over to someone else; I'll do my best to continue the site in the spirit that he established.

As someone who has always liked drawing and tinkering with painting, but never really had any formal training, I found Solar Voyager to be a godsend.  Here is a site that not only shows you spectacular works of space art, but goes the extra step and gives you information and tutorials that give you the power to create them yourself.  And it's populated by talented people dedicated to helping others improve their work's composition, realism and impact.  What could be better?

I look forward to getting to know everyone here better in the coming months -- And seeing what you create!

Padawan, the switchover has already taken place.  Thankfully, we were able to accomplish the switch without any disruption in service!

Klankster,

First of all, I wanna thank you for doing what you are doing for us, you're a hero, that's for sure!

Secondly, i'm impressed, I thought it would take days to get things working again.

What made it easy for us Pad was that we were simply able to transfer the account (and stay with the same provider) without actually having to change the file locations or structure of the site.  It was really the best way to do this sort of thing!
