Notice. New forum software under development. It's going to miss a few functions and look a bit ugly for a while, but I'm working on it full time now as the old forum was too unstable. Couple days, all good. If you notice any issues, please contact me.

Hiya

Moving the web site and forum to a new server on Monday/Tuesday 31 Jan 2023.

Its currently on a Windows server and the SSL cert is about to expire, so thought I would take the opportunity to move it over to a Linux server with ( much ) more CPU/RAM/etc. It will definitely run faster.

I rewrote the forum code in PHP/MySQL a few years ago in expectation this would happen one day, so dont expect any issues with the forum. The rest of the web site has a lot of ASP in it, but a few find/replace sessions should sort them out. I can tell the web server to treat ASP as PHP, which means any external links to site content will still work.

Anywho, if you find the site is down on Monday/Tuesday, call back an hour or so later.

OK, move done, mostly.

Still copying members files over, there are like 41,000 of them :)  Could take a few hours yet.

Some things are not working. The doc register is down, but the files are all in place so any links to the files will be ok. Lots of pages and images are broken links, working on it.

Will take a few days to get everything sorted, but the forum is working.

Its a lot faster now.

Heads up, there may be glitches and the server may go offline from time to time while we update things over the next few days. Dont panic.

Definitely noticed a substantial increase in speed of the forums since the update so far.
