Thingol told us in the welcome thread that MT will be down for three days for construction.

In case WGW doesn't post in here, I'll quote his post from MT:

Quote:
I need to transfer everything from my old (crappy) host to the new one, and this will take some time. At least one day will be required to get it done, and then I can change the name servers, which will take anywhere from 1 – 3 days to propagate.

I had hoped to get this ball rolling over the weekend, but my wife is in the last few weeks of pregnancy, and we had to do some things to get ready for our next house guest. []

Anyhoo, I’m going to make this quick like pulling off a band-aid. Sometime today, the board will be closed and the transfer begun. Check back in a day or three and we should be back up.

After this mess is over, I’m going to continue my investigation of converting the message board to something database-based. UBB Classic is dead, and the size of our city has made the latest version of the software creak like das boot. Thankfully, UBB was popular and there are many choices for conversion out there.

Hang tough!



Thanks for alerting us, Thingol!

Well, Thingy, you could pour me a drink.

Hmmmm! Streaking barman-sounds good to me. Smile

When are you moving Elanor?

Mine's a Southern Comfort on the rocks, please.
Oh-maybe "on the rocks" is the wrong expression for a streaking barman Wink

I'm leaving here and going back to the UK at the end of July, and going to Italy at the end of August.

*strides in deliberately, to ruin exclusively European thread*

*exhibits provincially ignorant fascination with purty font colors*

I hope the changeover isn't too much work at an inconvenient time for WGW.

EDIT: I forgot that I don't have legs. Crying or Very sad

Is this supposed to be Dark Red ? Shocked

Anyway, I'm sorry in advance Gna but I have only two pictures of Lasse and myself, and they are not especially fun...he wouldn't allow me to take more on Monday Razz , and in this club we went to we couldn't take any pictures Sad

Oh, with these colors, one is able to make spoilers, see :

Quote:
On his own words, Lasse will "probably" come at Athene's party this summer !! He HAS to come.

And these smileys suck -__- But thanks again Varna this is so useful !! Smile

E : I just talked to Lasse and he doesn't feel like posting the photos on MT... You'll have to convince him yourself, then, Gna

You're welcome! I'm glad it is helpful. But I agree that the smileys suck - I might try to look for more, it's possible to install another packet, I just haven't had time yet to look up how Embarassed

And I just checked out MT, which now has another line saying,

Quote:
P.S. If you see this, we are at the new host. Be patient - I'm almost done!


Very Happy

This is my favourite colour, though I like using this one to wind people up!!
Here's somewhere I also go when MT is down (or slow):http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/archers/

It's served its purpose for this time - I was glad to see it serving a purpose Smile

Now let's hope MT won't go down again for a looooooong time Cool
