DOWNTIME SOON!

Please excuse the downtime that will occur sometime in the next 24-48 hours.. We are moving the entire site from the older server to newer hardware so I can retire the old server that's been supporting this site for the past 5 years.. I recently built a nice new AMD Opteron based server that has room for a second CPU chip, more RAM, etc.. So this will improve operations as time goes by.. And no, I did not come into money, this machine belongs to the company I work for, but I'm able to use it this way.. So enjoy the new upgrade when we're done.

You're welcome.. I do try to keep things going..

If it matters, the database is already moved to the new server, so we're more than halfway done with the move.

Well, that was quicker than I thought. And I'm noticing some odd changes here and there for some reasons. Like, the "Post Reply" button right next to the "Quick Reply" one, it ain't showing. Nothing game-breaking, but I thought I'd let you know. In either case, thanks for the swift work, Shrink.

The quote, edit, and delete functions aren't there either, nor is the report user function for that matter. Emoticons aren't even useable for that matter. Are these some of the issues you mentioned, Shrink?

Yep... post, just quick reply and then pull up full editor to preview; sporadic cancel function, so once a reply is opened, it can not be closed. No edit, no quote, no new thread...

We're doomed! I see the pale horse, and death is following!!

Spinning laugh smiley would go here, but no... :)
