Possible meltdown alert!!

Post by Hilary the Touched » Sun Nov 28, 2010 12:35 am

DH is trying to sort out an update to the software for this message board, and I am doing my best not to totally hose it up. HOWEVER. Our best intentions may be no match for this, so if you're in the middle of something and the board suddenly goes bye-bye, I wish I could tell you not to be concerned, but all I can promise is it's nothing personal, and we'll try hard to restore a backed-up version. :uhoh
Thanks for your patience and forbearance!

Sending hopes for a rapid recovery for whatever ails us in all spheres of being, be it physical, emotional, or virtual ...

Well, Grils, it ain't the same, but it's a lot like the old one--!
So far we've lost our lovely colour scheme (which was down to Gillian) and our beautiful blue-eyed man (ditto), but so far, I see our emoticons (hello Monkeybutt!) and I've managed to restore our avatars!
Hm. Emoticons are now spread across two "pages," which is a little dreary, but I do admire the way that special topics--Announcements etc.--are set apart, and some of our members may appreciate another feature I've just noticed: at the upper right, just under the "search" button, is a white A with an arrow on either side. That's to control font size. :mrgreen: Just click to the right to increase, and left to make the type smaller.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to investigate aesthetic options.

I'm glad that nothing vanished from the board. :)

--including your adorable new avatar, Lisabella!
I'll keep working to get it looking more like our "old home"--the principle reason for this palaver was security concerns, frankly.

Thank you Hilary for keeping this wonderful place running! :woot
I'm glad everything worked out. (but I will certainly miss seeing the picture of our blue eyed man on the top of the screen...) :oops:

Hilary, thanks to you and your DH for whatever you did. :D
Is the board now for members only? I tried to reply to this post a minute ago but couldn't find a "reply" button. Then I realised that I wasn't logged in.

This might not be as bad as it seems, at least for me. I was always minimizing the window with that pic when "boarding" while at work. Image

(Did I just invent the use of "boarding" to describe reading a message board? I like it. :D )

Am slowly finding my happy place. :uhoh With time, familiarity will come.

Thanks for adding my Allie cat at 4 months old, Hilary. She was then, and still is, a cutie pie.
