Board Update

Unread postby Shrink908 » Thu Aug 27, 2015 2:23 pm

I have just updated the phpBB software to 3.0.14.. Their current version is 3.1.x and not sure there's an upgrade path to it, but at least we're on the current version of the 3.0.x series.. Let me know if you run into any snags.

I just checked.. There is no upgrade path to 3.1.x that wouldn't require practically rebuilding the board. And with Rei out of my life I simply don't have the skills to re-create the styles and such. So I believe we're stuck at 3.0.14 indefinitely, unless someone wants to step up and work with me to create similar styles on a 3.1.x system. If anyone wants to help with this, let me know.

As I've asked of Reaper, I need a copy of the exact error message so I can pass it along to Shrink.

I've already done a forced reactivation and he said it did the trick, but it's returned so I need that error message so come daylight I can contact Shrink.

The news is I'm ill, so I haven't been around much lately..

For those who are not aware, over the past year I've been diagnosed with kidney failure and am on dialysis because of that. This ties up a lot of my time (4 hours by 3 days a week) >and< I'm still working full time just to pay the bills.. If you guys are really interested in updating to phpBB 3.1 then I can set up a secondary site using the current data but without the themes and then those interested can work on getting it to look the way we want before it goes "live"... I'll try to monitor this better so if there's interest we can get that going..

I am sorry I've been absent, but I'm actually surprised I'm doing as well as I am.

Where can one go (on the internet, and free) to learn about customizing forums and whatever is needed to contribute to this?

the PHP-BB website is a good place to start. http://www.phpbb.com/ you'll find its link at the bottomof every page on this and other PHPBBsites.

and no shrink,I had no idea you were so sick. if I'd known that I would have sen you my last five bucks instead of spending it on a hand-me-down raspberry pi. remember, as good as I am, I am not a mind reader, so you need to tell me and the rest of us havenites, when you need help.

If you guys knew what I've been through in the past year.. But I've mostly kept it to myself. Let's see.. a brief timeline of all the messes in the past year-ish...

Sep 2014 - Landed in hospital due to not knowing I had kidney problems, almost died (literally, they say was within a week of dying) due to becoming septic. Started on dialysis but spent 10 days in the hospital.

Jan 2015 - Kakani (my now ex-g/f) started having a mental "break".. Started bringing home random strangers from the bus stop and having sex with them.

Mar 2015 - I got fed up with Kakani's BS and not wanting to listen to me and threw her out.. She then spent the next several months homeless in Arkansas, sometimes appearing at my front door asking for food/etc till she finally left and head back home to her mother in Washington State in about September.

Oct 2015 - IRS started pestering me about unpaid income tax that I wasn't even previously aware I owed.

Dec 2015 - IRS put a block on my wages so I had to hire a CPA place to deal with the back taxes and stuff.. Now paying $320/month for that till October. On top of being barely able to survive money wise as it was.

and there's a brief run down of why I've been absent.. My life is a disaster.. Oh, and throw in that a friend of mine and her husband have been having medical issues where they are physically unable to take care of some things, so once a week I run down to their house, do their grocery shopping and put out their trash, etc..

In happier news from some of the same time frame.. March 2015 one of my housemates heard a scratching at the front door and opened it to see which cat wanted back in.. Right before that nasty snow storm we had.. Was a new cat we'd never seen before.. bedraggled, could see every vertebrae and rib, coat dull, eyes dull.. barely alive.. Over the past year I've nursed him back to health and now he's a happy glossy kitty who practically won't leave my side. Sleeps by me almost every night... So I'm still useful for something.
