Forum Upgrade on Sunday, 1/13/08 - Board Closed from 1-4pm

Postby Babbman » Sat, Jan 12 2008, 10:31 PM

On Sunday, Jan 13, I will be doing yet another board upgrade to iron out a few issues that I have noticed.

In an unusual move, I am going to ask that no one upload any photos to the album here until the upgrade has been completed. The reason for this is that I must do a complete board backup before doing the upgrade and it takes about 2-3 hours to fully copy the board to my hard drive.

The actual upgrade will take about 2-3 hours and during that time, I will be locking the board down so no activity can take place. At that time, I will make a backup of the current database.

YOU CAN STILL POST TO THE FORUM until that time, just not add photos as they are actual files in the system and not just database entries.

Anyway, you can anticipate that the forum will be closed from 1pm - 4pm on Sunday, barring any unusual complications.

For your information, this will be the almost final upgrade that I have to endure. I anticipate at least one more upgrade within the next month and possible a final one in Feb or March.

Thanks...

Chris

OK everyone, boards upgraded and everything is set as far as I can tell. Let me know if anything isn't working or is messed up.

Thanks..

I just noticed the links to the maps, calendar and photos up in the title bar. Were they there before, or did you just add them?

I added them yesterday. We may still do a little rearrangement though. We may move Flickr over where the album link is for example.

By the way, in case they would work anywhere, both the calendar and map are embeddable.

I know. Whenever we get around to making a proper web page, we might pop them in.
