This is to wish all the best to the owner or whomever will be doing the upcoming changeover to a new server.
Is this also an uprade to a new version of the forum program? I know that has been promised in the past. If so is it the first version upgrade?
Well I am scared to skinny that there will be a glitch with the cutover to the new server and VALUABLE past postings will be lost into the cybersphere forever.
I truly hope that all backups are in place and working. I remember the time of a failure and the loss of many posts here a while back.
Was that a server switch or a lightning bolt?
I understand that the owner is a computer industry pro, and I guess that re-assures me a bit.... But the guys I am paying to build my computer tell me that most crashes are caused by geeks since most systems are worked on by geeks.
One thing is for sure. I know almost nothing about computers and servers and systems, but I know a whole lot about the disapointment of losing assets
...(of various kind)!
Hats off to the owner for starting and maintaining this thing, but please please understand that the text and pictures and recollections and tips and words here are what this forum really has most to offer.
The congregation and the founder are swell and the fellowship fun at times and human resources and contributions indispensible obviously.
But the "sacrements" (archives) are the real jewels (assets) of this (and most any) forum.
Please handle them with care.
