Dear all,

Eid Mubarak!

You might have noticed that the site was not reachable for the last couple of days. We took advantage of the Eid to undertake a site maintenance.  There are two main upgrades that occured.

1. Hosting Transfer
We have transfered our hosting to a new company.  Instead of having 400 MB of storage capacity, now we have 40 GB. So there's enough room inshaAllah for all the course materials and for all your assignments.  The allowed bandwith was also upgraded from 10 GB/month to 900 GB/month.  Now the site is ready for many more courses and many more users.

2. Moodle Upgrade and Gallery Module
Moodle was upgraded to version 1.6.2. You may not feel any difference with the system but this is the latest moodle version with some new features and added security.  Also, a gallery module was added, which allows us to add pictures to our course pages. You can check it out in the course "Nitrophosphate Project."

This upgrade needs to be tested. So, if you find anything funny, please let me know.
