Well, that took a lot more work than expected, but if you're reading this then we're up and running on the latest version of the forum software and we're at a new home and URL! As always, if you notice any problems please let us know.

There are a bunch of new features and changed interfaces and so on, but I think you'll find your way around the new version soon enough. Last time we did this in 2003 it went pretty smoothly. Please use the support forum for questions and problem reports.

As for the new URL: I've been hosting the forums for seven years, now, ever since Coolboard closed down (!). But lately I'm really too uninvolved with day-to-day stuff to give the forums the attention they deserve.

So, I'm going to be handing forum hosting back to Dale and ending my role as forum host. (But I'll still give him advice when I can!)

I've enjoyed my time here, first participating and then managing things quietly, and I hope the community contines to thrive for decades more. Thanks to everyone for making this place what it is and to Dale for putting up with my excuses for seven years!

You did a good job, sir.

You will indeed be missed.

Rich,

Thanks for all you've done over the years to help give us this great place to gather, share, challenge, learn, argue, contribute and gain!!!

Hope your shoulders feel free-er already! :)

Sarah

Thanks, Rich, for all your work. There's a Guiness waiting for you in your old home town. Contact me when you are passing through Belleville. :D

Good work; especially this upgrade. Especially impressed by the updates on the progress of the update when trying to read the section I am interested in, as things were being transferred. Excellent.

Great forum. Cheers

Pwt

Thankee Rich. I do appreciate your efforts and y'all do come back now, hear?
(just 'cause you're not in the catbird's seat doesn't mean you can't hang around on occasion :thumbsup: )

Thanks, Rich! That must have been a nightmare transition to phpBB3. I appreciate your work on the board and doing the hosting.
