    Forum Upgrade

    Overnight I upgraded the forum to the latest version. Sorry for the "no notice" downtime, but I had the time available and felt it needed to be done because of some vulnerabilities the forum was exposed to in the older version. I will be updating many of the plugins and additional products throughout the day tomorrow, including the gallery, blog, portal page, links, etc.

    I would caution you, should you run across a new feature, to not jump in too quick, or at least don't be surprised when I disable some of them. I try to balance a feature's usefulness against performance and management problems that new features may pose to us.

    Should you notice any problems, please don't hesitate to either post iot to this thread or send me a PM. It may take a bit for me to answer because of the amount of work still left to do, but I will answer.

    This upgrade should have fixed the problems that a few people were having voting in the polls.

    Well, that was interesting...tried to make my first post since the upgrade, and I had to agree to post only in English.

    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    Ie 6.0.2900

    Okay, this is weird, it seems there is some sort of grammar check that is uncapitilizing the second letter in IE. Or at least it does it sometimes. That's going to take some getting used to.

    You're like my wife...If I tell her the paint is wet, she just has to touch it to see for herself.

    And what's annoying is the spell check hits the Ie as being improper...sheesh.

    I think that the thing about posting in English is a glitch, normally, one would have to re-accept the forum rules, which for some reason are not the normal forum rules, but are now listed as:

    1. All posts must be written in English.
    2. Don't spam/abuse any other member via e-mail or Private Messages.
    3. Have phun! :p

    When I tried to log in this morning I got the message FATAL ERROR a few times. I can relate to the shakes
    "These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier
    and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the
    service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the
    love and thanks of man and woman."

    Anyone experiencing strange problems should log off the forum, delete your cookies, close your browser completely, open your browser back up and navigate back to the site. It appears that there was a change of some sort to the cookie....
