Well the time has come to do some upgrades to the forums. A few things will be happening


We will be moving the forum physical web hosting from a 3rd party to a new super Kodak internal server. This will take place this weekend on July 11th. I'm not sure how long the forums will down. There will be some lag as the new DNS info propogates the internet.
We will then be doing the software upgrade to the latest version of Vbulletin. I know I know I have been saying this for a long time, but thie time has finally come to put my money where my mouth is. I only have a buck, but its something. Not specific date has been set for this but I'm thinking in the next 10-14 days after the move. Certainly in July.Questions, ask or email me

rock on

Multi-quote (the ability to select multiple messages to reply to, in a single reply message) is a god-send. Can't wait for this upgrade!

Good Deal!

Would it be possible to add Gallary here? So I can upload images/screen shots..etc?

Thanks!

You can add screen shots now...they just do not show up inline. I'm not sure about a gallery features, but I know some other cool ones are coming.

One clarification. I talked with the Kodak tech guy doing the upgrade. The server switch is happening, but it will not be on a Kodak server, but a virtual hosted server off site..for security and backup purposes.

I'm not sure all the new features of the latest version of the forums..but it will sure be fun learning.

More soon. -tc

The upgrade seems to be complete. I guess once you can see this then your DNS has changed... Next upgrade will happen in a week or 2 upgrading vbulletin to the latest and greatest... Thank you for your patience as we make teh forums better. tc

I see the upgrade happened. From what I see so far I really like the latest version of vBulletin.

Thanks
