Forum downtime - advanced warning

Post by neil » Mon Aug 02, 2010 2:05 pm

Greetings.

We have discovered that the recent downtime as caused an additional problem with the forum - new users cannot register.

In order to solve this problem it will be necessary to take the forum down for a few hours and attack it with epoxy, a caulking iron and plenty of swearing.

I'm planning to do this on Thursday 5th August at 10:00, but please bear in mind that this is CVRDA time so the start time will be flexible.

Apologies in advance for the loss of service

Oh no!!

I've been waiting all year to see my birthday coming up in lights on the home page (or wherever it puts it) so please make sure you're all done by the week-end :) , or like the passing of an exceptional tide, I shall be high and dry until next year :(

This is my only, annual chance, of SWMBO knowingly letting me loose in a chandlery, (which this year could even coincide with a visit to Cowes week :wink:)

My boat may not be ready this year, but my Boots will be the Dog's B******s :D

Doesn't sound as if it would be very comfortable footwear to me, especially if still attached to the hound... Pwesonally I think I'll stick to the Ronstan boots...

It should only be down for a couple of hours - I'll make sure it is working for Michael's birthday 8)

Unfortunately I have been unable to find the time to sort the forum out, it's a myth that academics have the summer off :? . I had then hoped to sort it from home but due to a router problem was not able to, and trying to update the software via an iPhone is rather slow, won't try that again :wink:

I'll get it done early next week. Apologies to those trying to register, but at least Michael will get his moment of birthday glory :D

OK....the forum will be down tomorrow - Thursday 2nd September as I have a cure for the registration problem that I've yet to resolve. So if it's down after about 11:00 tomorrow morning you'll know why.

Looks like it's sorted - leaner, faster and more importantly new members can register.
