Folks,

I'm going to be doing some significant server maintenance over the extended October 11th-13th weekend. During this time, the Board will be up and down several times, sometimes for a few hours at a time.

This maintenance will include:

  • Upgrading FreeBSD, PHP and Apache
  • Upgrading PHPBB
  • Fixing some leftover dreck from earlier installs.
  • Installing some antispammer mods
  • Maybe installing a phone-friendly interface, if time permits.

Bump.

Reminding everyone of this. If you send me email this weekend that the board is down, be prepared for a sarcastic response. :roll:

Well, I successfully upgraded the virtual machine, OS, PHPBB, and database. However, that ended up taking the whole day due to some unexpected issues, so I'm not getting around to installing the antispam and mobile device features anytime soon. Each of those requires 2-3 hours of work.

Nice to see y'all back! Checked in throughout Canada's Thanksgiving weekend and was missing my connections!

I was needing a little humour, and almost emailed you (it seemed to be an invitation, not a warning...). But I managed to hold back :)

Thank you for all the work!

Just as well. Given how frustrated I was by Sunday, I think my response would have been less sarcastic and more irritated.
