Hi everybody,

I will upgrade the blog and forum software to current versions this afternoon. So the site will be unavailable at about 4 pm GMT. Hopefully it will take less than one hour if all goes well.

This outage will be a bit later than 4 pm. I have to go out for an hour or so.

Possibly 5-ish

I will give everybody 10 minutes warning when the time comes.

Chris, sometimes you wonder. The instructions said more or less

1 - download the upgrade

2 - delete the old forum folderfrom the server

3 - upload the new folder (with the software updates)

4 - first, save xxx and yyy before you delete the old folders

 

I was getting tired and trying to be methodical, so I followed the steps. Normally I would have read everything first to get a mental picture of the process.

No idea what genius moved step 4 after step 2 aargh

Danny: When I had our e-commerce business I always held my breath when we were doing major upgrades, it felt like jumping off a cliff unsure if a parachute would open or not - I think in this case your parachute opened so you can now breath more easily.

Well, that'll teach you, Danny......men never like reading instructions, do they? (flat pack furniture comes to mind winkbig_laugh).  But it's back (hooray!), it's done and it's ok, so well done you.

(Still enjoyed myself with the other Danny kiss last night in your absence, tee hee devil)

Come on Sooliz, the poor guy is short of sleep and needs a break. We don't read the flat pack instructions first because they are often written by some guy from Vietnam who doesn't have the best grasp of English and often forgets to put all the bits in the pack anyway. So it is often more like putting together a 3D jigsaw but without a picture to work from and without some crucial bit, or is that it still in the box " oh !!

Well done and thank you Danny!  big_hug magic

 

Oddly, I can now post comments on the blog without having to sign in on Firefox, I wonder how that happened?

I'll try that again!

Sue - I bet you were the kid who threw a can of lighter fuel on the bonfire "just to see what would happen" big_laugh

TA - that is very good news. Seems there must have been some fault that was fixed in this version. Hopefully we should not have the post width problem caused by big photos or long raw links.

Oh I do hope that the menace of 'page stretch' has gone.  

I'll try that again!
