Update 1/9/21 - The update is complete but not without some hair pulling and I don't have much left!

A sideways PHP update and some corrupted files caused a bunch of misfires.

And then the really fun one...who remembers the buried database password from 1996?
Lucky I had it on my super secret decoder ring that was in a safe spot.
The safe spot eluded me for about 4 hours...;-)

Thankfully, I located the password and had a copy of the bad files.

As of now we are back in the saddle....

If you see anything weird please drop me a note.

It will take me a few weeks to get up to speed on any new features so please be patient.

Thank you all for your participation.




Dear Cast & Crew.

There is a major BBS software update planned for early January 2021.
Now would be a good time to remove old and/or unwanted private messages. I have already pruned old want ads prior to August 2020. If you have want ads from then to now that have sold or no longer available please remove them too.

I am hopeful that there will be no issues and have made a full back up on 12/28.
Should things drift sideways the worst case would be a week or so loss of posts and any new membership that register between the 28th and the day of the update.

The board may be closed for a few days. I apologize in advance for any disruption.

Thank you all for your participation and your soon to be tested patience with the update.

**** Update will likely occur within a week of 1/8. Documentation has been submitted just waiting in the job line now.

Dave, just curious here. If my old private messages are unwanted by me, why would I care about safeguarding them from the update? I'm no software expert so no idea what is likely involved. Does it help the update go more smoothly if older, unwanted messages are deleted first?

What he said. Does it help your team if I delete them?

Best,
Ted

Deleting means I have to move, save and backup less data....

Thanks, Dave. I do have a few messages I'd like to save, and will do so.

Best of luck with the update.

Dave, will this update fix the picture posting issues we were discussing last week?

Thanks CJ

Let the upgrade settle in and I see what I can do about picture posting.

Right now it takes about 2 hours with required manual assist to back up the forum.

In addition, I don’t have the bandwidth to move the back up files around from home...I have to do it at my real job.

Adding image storage will multiply that time and effort several times.

We shall see.
