Scheduled Maintenance Saturday Feb 19, 2022 @ 12:00 Noon EST
« on: February 12, 2022, 06:23:57 am »
I will be performing some overdue maintenance on the Forum on Saturday February 19, 2022 at approximately Noon Toronto time. I estimate (guess wildly) that this will take around three hours, but I've never done this before so it could be much shorter or much longer. During this maintenance window the Forum will be inaccessible. I will post progress reports at sparegoggles.forumotion.net as well as @vonCorax on Twitter.

Thanks for the heads up. I shall Languish langourously (probably play the fiddle and the banjo alternately and follow Dad arond the backyard so I can haul him back into the house when he wears himself out) in the interim.

Take care, and Bless You!

It took a little longer than planned, because Simple Machines chose to go down for maintenance at the same time, but we're patched and live again.

It's possible. I also optimized the tables and fixed some inconsistencies in the database.
