Upgraded forum software
04/14/13 at 04:56:50
 
Hi Everyone,

It took forever (well a couple hours) but I've succeeded in installing the new version and porting over all the messages. Things are mostly okay, except maybe something with sending email notifications.

So, the party's on! (Hopefully with less spam registration.)

A new version of the forum software with a slight tweak to the Captcha routine has stopped spam registrations.... for now.  The question of how to get people to legitimately register is yet to be resolved.

Also, I've hacked the message database to consolidate "Joel" and "Joel (admin)" postings. Let me know if you notice any problems. At least it seemed straightforward.

Greetings,

Joel (all-powerful 'admin' as well as ordinary guy)

I, too, encountered a lot of rich writings while working around the periphery with hammer, nails, and scaffolding.
