Hello all,<br><br>We've identified the path today for how the upgrade is going to happen. Rick (the developer) is in the process of installing the necessary software on the new server.<br><br>Once that happens, then we need to do the migration. The migration needs to take the configuration (and data) through several updates. This is a result of the software being about 7 years old and not being upgraded previously.<br><br>To do the migration with the minimum amount of effort, and the maximum speed, we will be planning to shut down the existing server and the forums for about a day. When that happens, all the forums will be offline. We'll look to put up a "under migration" page when that happens so we're not just dark.<br><br>As soon as they are ready, we'll bring it all up again on the new server.<br><br>Note: Some things will be changing here. For example, it will become MacTech Forums (instead of MacMinute Cafe). This because we plan to add additional discussion areas that are in line with MacTech. The URL will redirect when ready.<br><br>Certain things will stay permanently in dedication to Stan and we don't ever want to change. For example, Stan's Lounge is the standout.<br><br>I think that's everything. Things are moving, and Rick is making progress.<br><br>Thanks!<br><br>Neil<br><br><br><br>
HOLY MOLEY! <br><br>So... You Chose ELECTION DAY to Shut Down the Forum?***<br>MMMMMMMMMMMMMMaybe NOT Such A Good Idea..............<br><br>Could you perhaps Hold-Off at least until the Results are FINAL?<br><br>***What we've been discussing for only mmmm 8 YEARS!!!!!!<br>we'd kinda' like to be together at this pivotal time in history.<br><br>Thanx For Your Kind (RE)Consideration.<br>TIA<br>Jake.<br><br>[color:white].<br></font color=white>[color:white]. .</font color=white>"Fool us thrice...and we get what we deserve." . .. . ... . . .. . ..

Thanks, Neil.<br><br>Should we clean out the 'fridge and turn off the gas for the time being? <br><br>Assuming you'll post a notice a day or two before the shutdown (don't want any 911 calls or anxiety attacks, after all)?<br><br>
He didn't say today, he some one day.<br><br>Actually, would you rather have it shut down tomorrow, AFTER the elections? <br><br>For me, it doesn't matter when because politics isn't everything. It's not what brought me here nor is it what keeps me here.<br><br><br><br>my photos
