downtime -- thanks for your patience

Just wanted to say thanks for your patience while the board was down for procedures related to our upcoming board software upgrade.

I know it's frustrating to keep checking the board, and it's down.

We can expect a couple more 3-12 hour downtime periods. Most should be in off-hours, but not all. Upgrades of this nature are a great annoyance, and time-consuming to do properly. Nevertheless, a smooth database transition will no doubt make all of our dreams come true.

Thanks again.

So what exactly is being made better about the board? Stuff behind the scenes that we wont really "notice" but it'll be there, like faster server and stuff?

Some stuff like that, yes. Some cool fun stuff too, and some stuff that will save you time searching and viewing threads.

Now come on guys, 3-12 hours down. I mean really that should be no problem for any of us. But let it stay down one minute more ......

I'm takin' hostages

Put the computer down and just back away!

Thanks for improving the community even more. I hope Heaven is seperated into little communities like the internet is. All of us hotrodders would live in a region, the "home and garden" crowd would be in another region, and the food people would be in another, computer/video game addicts somewhere else, but I dunno about ricers, would they make it? lol

In the voice of Stan from South Park: "holy ******* dude."

Seriously, man. I would say you've got something in your nose, but I think you're in about up to your shoulders on this one.

Madd, where have you been? Looks like you made the permanant move from the "Arm Pit" to the "Crotch". Hope things are going well for you after all the 'canes. Are you working on your stuff or did you leave it in the Arm Pit so spare it from all the salt of the Crotch?
