There is a 70% chance that we will move to the new forums tonight.

      I have no idea what that means. I'll assume something is happening in computer land.

     Is there anything that we mortals need to do?  I just read the advisory asking us to use our real names. I will now try to figure out how to capitalize my real name which is already in use.

     Awaiting further instructions - or not,

The site might be down for 10 minutes or an hour.  And then when it comes back up, things will be .... different.

And it is likely that people will need to reset their passwords, so having an email we can send the password reset instructions to is very important.

Are you sticking with Simple Machine Forums or migrating to another software package?

We are moving to a heavily modified version of JForum.  The stuff used at coderanch.com.  Andrew Monkhouse is running point on the transition.  He is the "Marshal Commander" at coderanch, a long time software engineer, and author of a book on software architecture.  I have some experience with software dev stuff, so I'll be helping a little.

We found a glitch.  Something that is too big of an issue.

So we won't do this tonight.  Maybe wednesday night.

We will, however, have a test system running a little later.  Maybe folks will be able to pop over and tinker a bit.

 
Oh, sure, you could do that. Or you could eat some pie. While reading this tiny ad:
