Ok, so now that I've pissed you off with an obnoxious title for my thread, it is my pleasure to announce that I have hacked^H^H^H^H^H been given access to the site and will be installing a new version of the forums in the next couple of days.

I am going to need a couple of people to check it out before we release this beast into the wild. Expect bugs, crashes, data loss, and an urge to mount clubmans in a minivan.

I would prefer people who have been posting here for a while. If you have under 300 posts, thanks, but I'd like someone with more history. I think about five volunteers will be plenty.

Ok, that's five.

Since all of you have an address in your profiles, I'll send you an email soon (probably tomorrow) with some instructions.

Thanks!

I'm selling it all for hookers and beer. Actually, forget the beer.

I'll be making a backup of the current database. I do not expect to lose any posts, users, postcounts, or anything else important.

This will require some forum downtime so that I can make a copy of the database. The first pass will be just to install the new forums and work out stupid details like spam prevention, etc. Then I'll be migrating data from the old forums.

I'll put up an announcement prior to the downtime so you can all find something else to keep you busy during the upgrade.

Will being a guinea pig get us a status promotion? I learned to ride a motorcycle on my uncles Matchless 500 scrambler over 30 years ago. I've owned, built, restored, and raced a wide variety of bikes since then. Logging in here and seeing "Minibike" under my name is always so humiliating.

Cheers, Bret @ Glass from the Past

borzwazie- how come the lucky 5 with the golden tickets have to have over 300 posts and yet your the one who has been trusted to build the new board but you only have 269 posts? <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

because system administration and website development is what I do for a living.

I was clearly not chosen to upgrade the software due to my motorcycle expertise (or utter lack thereof) <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Think of it as an amazing beautiful adventure.....and at the end you and all your friends die a horrible death.

You know....if that helps.
