The Memphis Music, Film, and the Arts Directory.

I am sorry to say that the Live From Memphis directory is officially broken. You may still search the directory and/or categories for Memphis Creatives, but sadly users may no longer log-in to update info. :(

We have been experiencing an amazing amount of growth this year and our system has reached its capasity. Our poor old 2002 server has been slowing dying over the last few months. I've attempted to prolong it's inevitable demise but I am now certain the server is on it's last leg. I fix one thing and two others break. For this reason, we will no longer repair this system. The technology is old and the server itself has seen better days.

So, the question is, what's the next step? We are working on several options; however, many of you know that LFM's finical resources are minimal so whichever solution we go with, it will be done with sweat equity and may take a while.

In the meantime, If you are an avid fan of LFM and its services, never fear - all other features such as news, calendar, the store and much more are still working fine. (Some features have been running off a completely separate server for some time.)

We will keep you posted.

thanks, Christopher
