Dear Members,

By tomorrow i.e., Sunday, I will move the www.Srivaishnava.org domain
from Geocities to Communitech.net. Due to this move, the pages may not
be accessible using the above mentioned domain name. It takes about 3
days for InterNIC to reroute the traffic for this domain to the new host
site.

You may, however, can access the files using the IP address:

http://216.88.164.146

What are the changes and reasons for the move?

Some may question the reason for the move. There are a few advantages
with
moving to communitech.

1. Can implement search feature for Saranagati pages. This was difficult
with
    Geocities, where searching was applicable to the entire Geo
community.

2. Allows unrestricted file type support and service. We are planing to
include
    downloadable fonts (dynamic fonts) for all tamil and Sanskrit texts.
The dynamic
    fonts eliminate the need for installing the ttf/bdf fonts on host
machines.

There one down side  to the move, which is  short term and will be
rectified
as soon as possible.

1. The guest book for SaraNagati Journal will be redone.

Thanks for your assistance,

Venkatesh K. Elayavalli
