Just as a heads-up on progress: I might
be doing the switch tomorrow.
There's still a little way to go and, due to the amount of things that have been changed, it will require several hours of downtime (you will
) and will most likely result in a slightly broken site as there's so much for me to remember to do - even with the help of a list in front of me I'm not convinced I'll remember everything, but I'll give it a go.
Whether it ends up being tomorrow or whether it's early next week depends on the last few bits I'm working on but it's tantalisingly close now.
I thought I'd best give some warning since this will be the longest interruption to normal service on the site since 2008 when I did the last big upgrade.
There will also doubtless be some layout bugs that appear afterwards - most likely in the forum theme as it's so complicated (I think
I've checked it all but you can never be sure). I'm sure you guys will let me know if anything looks weird and I can easily fix any issues as they appear.
I'm quite excited about it - it's not got all of the things I had planned to add, but I think it's more important to launch it at this stage or else I'll be adding bits on for months and never finish it
May your terror missions always be infested with Chrysalids.
