Hi everyone!

It's time to upgrade the forum software to match the latest version from IPB: http://forums.invisionpower.com/index.php?showtopic=237481 - they've gave a big leap in terms of updates so it's a good ocasion to renew the forum software.

This transition is expected to occur next thursday or friday and may take some time because of some settings needed to be taken care - doing a full backup of the server and databases, test the new version on a local host, etc - most of this work is done while the board is running but at some step it will become temporarily unavailable.

The expected minimum offline time may range between 1 hour and several days (in a disaster situation) and the only critical point is the upgrade itself. After this step it will revert back to a "normal" board without any addons which will slowly be integrated if needed. I will start at night to cause less interference.

------------

If anything goes seriously wrong (predicting murphy's law), there is always the "escape point" on the 911cd.net forums here: http://www.911cd.net/forums//index.php?showforum=40 - please add this link on your bookmarks if necessary.

-------


As always - hope you all have a great weekend!! (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/cheers.gif)

Forgot mentioning that until next week I'll also be tweaking around the current settings to see where we can improve the overall board speed.

Also removed the chatbox on the bottom of the main page and disabled a few statistic details to save time and database queries.
