Default Important Update A'Comin' Late August 2016

Either on Sunday or Monday...we will have our newly located tech specialist implement an update to make things run a little more smoothly. You've probably noticed a few episodes of the site 'going down'....but don't fear. The server is either backing up the boards or doing routine work.

I'll also be backing the boards up ( routine ) on Saturday.

May I suggest all members save a copy of any posts you make just in case it doesn't 'cross over' on the back up.

Thanks....and thanks to the folks who have contributed to the boards over these last 11 years.

HB

You don't know how close to being right you were, String.

I narrowly missed shutting the sumbitch down indefinitely.

I changed a password in a certain section in the database. For some reason, it wasn't recognized. I really thought that the boards were kaput.

I got so frantic I contacted web developers for estimates. The cheapest was 375 bucks.

After I calmed down a little....I got back in touch with the server....and one of their tech assistants took 45 minutes and fixed the problem.


All's well now.

We still have an update to do with the VBulletin people....but I think it will be okay.

Bob:

I'm not exaggerating about how close the boards came to going bye bye....until they could be repaired, that is.

Thanks guys....it wasn't a matter of me making a mistake or going into an area I shouldn't have...the password saving function simply didn't work properly.
Had to lay down for a while...I'm okay now.

Blimey, How - it worked!

When you first came up with the idea for a thread designed to make Mr Linford say something nice about you I thought you were crazy. I suppose that's why you're the guvnor and the rest of us are just punters.

Remember....it might be in your best interest...beginning tomorrow as VBulletin technical personnel will probably contact me Monday.....to make a copy of your intended posts just in case they don't 'make it' over during the update/upgrade I've mentioned.
