It is affecting performance because the lists drive that box pretty
hard at times.

It is affecting function because we cannot reasonably upgrade services
without impacting the rest of the server since it is not dedicated to
evolt.org's purpose.

b.e.o will reside on the new machine and the current raq will become a
mirror as it was originally intended.  The unrelated services are
things like personal services that the raq was originally intended to
host by the owners of the raq.

The other reason to move is because it isn't evolt.org's server.  It
is donated just like Dan's hosting and then Ron's hosting after that
which could disappear at any time.
