Server Move - PLEASE READ!!
« on: October 24, 2011, 11:33:57 AM »
I will be moving the board sometime today or tomorrow. You may see it go into maintenance mode a few times and access may be spotty!

Will let you know when I am done!

Lets hope that its painless and uneventful and that it is the last time you have to do it. Good luck.  :D :D

Cheers  :beer:

I think we're 5 hours ahead of you here in the UK, Eric, so 10pm EST will be 3am over here.

 ::) That should give you plenty of time to sort out any minor bugs while i'm asleep....

Good luck!

Hi Eric

Looks nice ...  :thumbup:

And nippy ...  :thumbup:

Many thanks for your efforts. You're a hero.

Errrr .... but I have to use 150% Zoom to read it ??

Thank you very much Eric for putting so much into this (& to Mrs Drangonfly as well!).

I think the sheer numbers of members and, probably more important, rapidly and repeatedly returning visits to the site give testament to the value of the community you've set up, of which you can be justifiably proud.

Thanks again  :clap:  :clap:  :clap:  :clap:  :clap:  :clap:  :clap:

Any chance of installing Tapatalk support for smart phones?
I use Tapatalk with a lot of my other forums and it's a really good app. Free for the forum as well, although it costs a couple quid to buy for the user.

I clocked in after breakfast to find everything was well and truly up and running. And a spell check which seems to know both US and British English, too! Centre center, colour color are all OK.

Thanks for all the effort you have put into this, Eric  :clap: :bow: .

All working well, nice and clean look and don't need to turn the laptop screen brightness up now, the feature to Show unread posts since last visit appears to work correctly now, very annoying in the past as it appeared to working on rare occasions

Great work Eric - looks like a pretty clean migration from where I'm sitting, and the new layout is growing on me too.

Let's hope the hosting's up to the job now!
