Drunk Down time at midday for a little upgrade :)

As the title says, however we will be back up ASAP, hopefully it will not take longer than an hour?

Re: Down time at midday for a little upgrade :)

OK did you miss us?

We are open again but we will have to take the site offline for work to be completed several times throughout the rest of today

Sorry but it cannot be avoided.

Maybe more Members joining us. Or even pages served up faster (We hope - touch wood)

If you are into offline meets you will benefit. Our Regional Support guy is splitting areas into more sensible and manageable sizes, we have just tested what he has requested to make sure it will work

Well Happy Re: Down time for more upgrades :)

A few things have changed but nothing to shout about, mostly software upgrades, better coding of features etc. There were some complete re-writes of code, it looks no different to the end user, but to us it really is automating and removing a job we would normally have to do daily so thats great.

Long links should auto wrap, but if you see any long page titles regulary breaking the page, please report it to a mod so we can remove them.

Many thanks for noticing our work and taking the time to mention it, I am sure I can speak for Geoff and Hans too.

Ian

PS: Uploading process of images has changed slightly, but we hope you like the results of change!
