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.

Hi Guys.

Over the next few days there web site may go down for a few minutes while we test a few changes to the server. This will be short.

The server was set up to use containers, where we have one container for the MySQL database, one for the forum, etc. Its the latest thing apparently, each process runs in its own container, but in practice its a bit rubbish and is causing a few issues when you get away from a basic web site.

So I've asked the server guy to "un-containerise" the server, and set it up as a run of the mill LAMP server.

At some stage I'll need to shut down the forum, transfer everything over and fire it back up. If possible I'll give some notice of when this may happen.
