CPG and Me

Many moons ago I decided to set up a website. I had never ventured into the wonderful world that is web design before and was very wet behind the ears. I am a network support guy (read geek) and have some programming experience but that doesn’t help in the slightest when it comes to web design.

Moved to Bytemark Hosting

Its a great pleasure to inform you all that we have moved our site and all subdomains to a dedicated server sponsored and hosted by Bytemark. The transfer was smooth without any outages and our ever busy forum was up all the time.

You will find the forum pages loading faster than earlier as the new server has more resources which we couldn’t manage on our old shared hosting environment. However, we are highly obliged for the services provided by our old host Power-Netz for the past numerous years.

We would like to thank Matthew Bloch and his team from Bytemark for their generous offer and services. We look forward to a wonder webhosting experience.
