Let the FUN begin!

Sorry to do this but we have to shut things down now. All in the name of progress of course.

We are moving to a new server and in preparation for the move
the following Forum and Plan Gallery Features have been disabled:

1. New Registrations
2. Posting of messages (New Topics and Replies).
3. Personal Messages (PMs) and Internal Emails
4. Plan Uploads


At some point in the next day or two this week, perhaps, Hip Pocket will be unavailable.
(Tech Support is struggling with some aspects of this move)

All you we can do is wait patiently for the site to return.

We thank you for your patience and understanding and are hopeful we won't have too many bugs to work out once we come back online.

Probably best to go build something.
