Recent Forum Outage
« on: October 19, 2016, 10:47:12 PM »
Just a quick post to apologise for the recent forum outage. This was caused by a routine server software update causing the rather old version of the forums software we were running to finally fall over in a fatal way.

This resulted in having to upgrade the forums to the latest version in order to solve the issue, a process that took rather longer than was originally expected.

However, the process has now been completed and with, it would seem from my checks, without any loss of data. I have some minor tweaks to make over the next couple of days, but nothing that should stop the forums from being used straight away.

If anyone does encounter any problems, please do contact me directly and I will do everything I can to resolve them.

Apologies for the outage any inconvenience that may have caused.

- Neil.

'Tis my experience in life that most things take at least twice as long as you'd expect.

Having said that I do like the new look.
