View Full Version : working to transfer board again: expect downtime

17th March 2007, 01:32 PM
I am probably going to be working on the board tonight and/or tomorrow (Sunday) and if so the board will be offline for periods of time while I try to see if I can successfully transfer the database.

Apologies for the inconvenience but the spam account registrations are now major headaches daily as they all require individual deletion, and I want to move to different software to manage these more easily (as well as adding in the other new features for the board).

Can't wait to see the new features! But don't keep us down too long...the withdrawal pains are awful ;)

I was in Mexico for a week with no internet access. cl*p I am hoping to get this transfer done but it depends on whether I can get a few hours just to work on it. And if it works!

Well I failed at getting this done -- there's been an update to the board software already so I have to install that, then go thru the migration process as a test run a few times, then will be ready to move the board.

I needed to do some updates to my SM Infosite as there were some new documents out and I wanted to add links for abstracts and slides from the Nov. SM conference in London and that ate up most of today. :(

Tomorrow (Monday) is a holiday in Ireland so I might get this done tomorrow; otherwise it will move to the end of the week as I have a lot on workwise, midweek.

Very frustrating as we are almost there except for this last push. :?

I am going to try this again this weekend; just a warning that wth luck, you'll log on to see a new board; with bad luck, you will get a board down notice. :)
