ok, I didn’t achieve the update the way I wanted to (so there was a delay), but the scary part of the upgrade is over .
at this point I’m simply cleaning up any minor post-upgrade bugs and adding the new features I mentioned before on the NHC. it’ll be back online later this week - when I know the exact date I’ll let you know here!
well it’s time for the no homers club’s every-other-year major upgrade, something that i never really look forward to, but hey, you guys that visit us so often certainly deserve it.
for those that are interested in the nerdy aspects of the job, this one’s probably one of the most major updates we’ve ever done, since i’m transferring all of our data to a brand new vbulletin message board script (instead of upgrading from within the existing script). this update will rid us of errors the board has experienced since 2008, give us an improved forum/blog script, and will include lots of new toys. also we’re getting a boob job. full D’s baby.
…but i’ll try to keep many things the same as well so you don’t have to be too scared about all this.
apologies for the slight delay in doing this, which might push the downtime until june 1st, but let’s hope not. i was working on backing up our files & planning all of this for a bit the past few days, but i also needed to have some fun on memorial day weekend (that is, lotsa drinking).
but no worries, i’m working hard on this now. i’ll keep you all updated on my progress on this shiny new tumblr of ours.
p.s. if i go insane while doing this, dark homer is under orders to shoot me. wish me luck.
