Just upgraded website.

In the next day or so, I’m going to be upgrading the panda website. This will be a multi-step process:

Step 1. Install a new OS on a new machine.

Step 2. Lock the forums on the old machine.

Step 3. Copy the data over to the new machine.

Step 4. Change the DNS to point at the new machine.

So from your point of view, there will be a day or so where you can’t post, and then things will return to normal. I’m sure that I’ll fail to copy something or other, and it will probably take a few days to work the kinks out.

After the transition, you’ll notice a new antispam captcha on the phpbb2 registration page. You’ll also see that we’re running the latest version of everything (wiki, phpbb2, etc). Hopefully, you won’t notice any other changes.

Update: if you’re looking at this, the forum upgrade is complete.

Nice, thanks for making an attempt to stop the spam Josh.
