The server location is not changing, but thank you for your offer ...

Again, operating system isn't changing, but thank you for your offer ...

Both of the above issues that Bruce pointed out are being worked 
on/addressed, just not as fast as Bruce would like to see happen ...

There is currently a re-write of the web site being worked on ... if you 
wish to aid in that, please feel free to subscribe to pgsql-www, where the 
discussions on this are taking place.  Alexey(sp?) has spent a good deal 
of time working on/cleaning up the backend code itself, and there has been 
one site redesign proposal that I *believe* has been accepted already for 
how the new site will look ... the fun part is trying to find man hours to 
implement it :(
