Dear all,

This week our Pacific Bulb Society web site and wiki were moved to a new 
server which hopefully will be faster and less likely to time out when the 
ibiblio site has a lot of traffic. Please use the 
(www.)pacificbulbsociety.org domain when you access our web site or wiki. 
If you have made a bookmark in your browser to our web site, wiki, or one 
of the wiki pages, please replace  http://www.pacificbulbsociety.org/ with 
http://www.pacificbulbsociety.org/ or pacificbulbsociety.org in the url. If you 
have been kind enough to provide a link in your web site to our wiki or 
website, please change that as well.

At the moment the old urls work since ibiblio is redirecting the pages to 
pacificbulbsociety.org, but sometime in the future the old urls will get 
one of those, "page not found messages." I had visions of searching google 
and finding web sites to alert, but soon decided it would be too time 
consuming. I found a chat group I had to translate from the Chinese where 
people were discussing Iris and had shown a link to our Iris wiki page. I 
found a .pdf file from a governmental group in Arizona that had a link to 
Rob Hamilton's Triteleia lemmoniae picture from the wiki to illustrate this 
species. There were Garden Web references to  our pictures to name just a 
few that probably can't be changed. The same is true for our archives. So 
if you search the archives and see a reference that includes a link 
remember to change it if you find in the future it draws a blank.

Once again I want to thank the people who helped me change the links for 
all the files, but especially Susan Hayek who did a couple letters of the 
alphabet every night until we were done and then helped me change the links 
to the pictures in the favorite flowers people chose by color.
