Latest Announcements from the Forums

2014-01-24: Forum Oops
I somehow left the forum in maintenance mode for a while here. My apologies to anyone that was unable to access things. It should be back to normal functionality now though. Please let me know if you run into any problems though.


2013-08-30: Minor software upgrades
PHP, Apache, and MySQL (along with a few dozen supporting libraries and such) have been updated. All of these were minor version updates, so shouldn't impact much, but if you run into problems, as always, just let me know.

In the not too distant future -- that is, a few weeks from now -- I will probably be upgrading PHP from 5.4 to 5.5. As far as I know, this shouldn't be too big of an upgrade, but you might want to make sure your PHP scripts and applications are compatible with PHP 5.5.


2013-07-17: Equilibrium
So I'm now comfortably settled in Bend, Oregon. I've two different internet feeds (I'm a nerd) and more free time than I know what to do with. If anyone is journeying near this part of the country and would like to say hi, I've got a spare bed to offer. Otherwise, know that all things are on cruise control as far as the site is concerned. I'm spending my time getting in shape, doing some mountain biking, hiking, etc. and I'm toying with Aruduino and the other electronics, as well as nerding it up in some local RPG groups and Belegarth (which is hitting people with padding sticks and calling them swords.) :-)


2013-05-06: Freedom!
So, I quit my job on friday, and my lease here in Houston is up on the 18th. After that, I'm packing everything I own in a trailer and driving northwest. My goal is Bend, Oregon. I have no job, no place to live, and know absolutely no one for hundreds of miles in any direction. My only plan is to "chill the buck out" for several months and try to find something more interesting to do with my life than sit behind a desk.

How will this affect the site? Well, it shouldn't. I've plenty of money saved up, and the server bills are on auto-pay. Theoretically, I shouldn't need another job for two to three years. Only possible impact is if something technically mucks up while I'm in transit, I might not catch it for a bit longer. I will have a laptop with me and random wifi along the way though.

That said, I don't plan to work for at least another six months, maybe longer. I'm going to travel, relax, and enjoy things. To that end, if anyone is situated between here (Houston) and Oregon, and would like to have a pint of beer or a cup of coffee, let me know. This road trip may be solo, but it should still be epic, and I'd love to meet any of ya'll I can along the way. :-P


2013-04-04: Upgrades to forum and webmail
I've upgraded both the forum and webmail software to new versions. The webmail one went smoothly, but I hit some bumps with the forums. I think I got it sorted out, but if you run into problems, please let me know.
