The backend for the DMVPN has been written and Hub3 and Hub5 are up and running for development. If you would like to participate in a trial of this service just reply to this, send me a private message, or email me at rgoode04 AT gmail.com and i can walk you through it to get started.
March 30th will mark the release date of DMVPN into production and at that time the tunnel servers will all be disabled for 48 hours while work is completed.
What happens after?
All IPv4 tunnels will be disabled and removed, all tunnel server ASNs will be changed to a single global ASN in the private range and all clients will be converted to private ASNs as well
What if i cannot run DMVPN?
There may be plans to leave one server in the US and one server in the UK up to handle the traffic of non-dmvpn tunnels but that is up in the air at the moment and more information will be available as the month progresses.

Upcoming Changes: March 2014
Upcoming changes for March:
I am moving away from unicast tunnels (they will still be supported for a while after DMVPN goes live) and moving to multipoint GRE tunnels (future plans with IPSEC as well)
What does this meant for you?
1) tunnels will be dynamic and you will not need to update your IP if it changes
2) tunnels will form between the tunnel server and the end host (you) as well as beteen end-hosts (peer to peer) so routing will no longer traverse the backbone
3) IPV4 only at this time so IPv6 will still be handle with normal GRE
4) Tunnel servers are not changing (london may be decommed and replaced) but you will no longer be tied down to a specific server, all servers are hubs and clients can choose which hubs to register to
- Tunnel Server Updates
All tunnel servers will be updated throughout the month of March for software and security patches
Numerous backend changes are being made to aid in the upcoming change over to DMVPN

I have cleaned the spam and altered the board settings so that from this point forward new users only have access to request activation by an admin in a special forum that was created. After their post they are locked out until an admin authorizes their account.
This will prevent legitimate users from seeing spam as well as limit the amount of spam that can be put in the special forum itself. Once a new user registers, they can only see the activation forum and once they post there to request access, their account is altered so that they can no longer view that forum and must wait until an admin modifies their account.
unfortunately i have tried multiple ways to prevent the spam but this is the only way that ensures all other boards are not affected.
