    The forum will be unavailable for approximately two hours beginning at around 2am for a major hardware upgrade. After reviewing the cause of what happened Sunday, this change should speed things up quite a bit and prevent those types of issues from occurring for the foreseeable future and hopefully get us through a few more years before another is needed.

    So we should be all set for this weekend's game and hopefully we'll be talking about a win when it's over :)

    I recall that you hoped to avoid the need to do this, so I'm sorry it's come to this. Thanks for all you do to keep this place going.

    "It is what it is" and it needs to be done. The upside is it will be nice not having to keep a window open while worrying about it freezing when it spikes, and hopefully should have things running smoother moving forward.

    LOL it's happening at 2am. "Chatting" isn't what you should be doing at that hour ;)

    My (non-fan) wife says it would be funnier if you did this Sunday at 6:30 p.m.

    But I'm glad you're not!

    Thanks Ian.

    ETA: Took almost 8 years, but *finally* in the starting line-up. Feel very Ray/Ross Ventrone-ish.

    Just a periodic bump for those on the West Coast who may log on - or those on the East Coast who don't tend to get much sleep :cool:

    Thanks Ian. Not to get all sentimental or anything but when the board went down it made me look at the bigger picture and wonder for a second what life would be like without this place :( Then we kicked the TExans *** and I felt a little bit better :cool:

    Just got an update that if all goes well we'll be down for probably closer to an hour, so hopefully that will work out well for those of you who may be on here. I'll be manually shutting the board down before they start, and then I'll click back on to re-open it once they're done. Late night ahead :cool:

    All set. We're up and running and all looks good. I'm off to bed and I'm closing this out but feel free to post any concerns in the Help Forum if you spot any issues and I'll check them in the morning :cool:
