Roadfood.com Database Upgrade

Roadfood.com just moved the database to a fancy new server which should make the user experience MUCH faster. Thanks to the the Roadfood Insider members whose contributions make upgrades possible. Without you, Roadfood.com would not be afford all the bandwidth the forums utilize.
