Server Upgrade

Moved our web site to a New Service Provider.  Our web site had grown to the Disk Usage Size of 68 Megs which was going to cost us about $80.00 a month on our current Internet Service Provider, So we move to a provider that would sell us 80 megs of disk space for $50.00 a month.  Having the BIGGEST NAVY web site on the internet is great, but it is expensive also.  Keep those donations coming in shipmates!
