Forum Withdrawal coping suggestions?
« on: February 15, 2012, 10:10:41 AM »
With the forum software upgrade tomorrow, what are some good suggestions for coping with the associated "forum withdrawal" that I'm gonna experience while things are unavailable ?  :)

Isn't there a chat room that is posted here from time to time?  I wonder if an integrated chat room will be in the new software release, rather than going to a separate site?

Either way, I'll be driving home from work at that time.  And I rarely post on the forum from home...I get enough computer time at work.

I'll be wiring in new light and hanging a ceiling in the basement about that time.  I think I'll survive the outage.  8^)

Good luck and I hope it goes well.  I've had .5hr predicted outages that ate up days of my life.  8^(

Denny, you said:

the new software will be worth the short outage.

Care to explain what we'll notice?

well, the good thing is that we've been testing the new software at a hidden URL for the last several weeks...no glitches, no problems.  Hopefully the real thing will be as smooth.

Tom, the interface looks a little slicker, but most improvements are "behind the scenes" stuff.

Yes, but what will be different?   Will users notice anything?

Should I start wearing my tinfoil hat, more regularly?

I'm going to go start my own forum! With blackjack, and hookers!

In fact, forget the forum and the blackjack!
