Testing to see if I can post anything, after the host change over. Havn't seen anyone post anything all day, despite being logged in. So... *TAP*TAP* this thing on???

The forum was down all day (well, whenever I checked it was).  So, I'm probably not going to post anything under those circumstances.  However, now it's not down.  Yay!  Anything new & exciting aside from a host change?

The forum code was updated in the switch. New version, has some frills around the corners. Theres also a new skin choice to allow dimming the color scheme a bit for pro users (look at the bottom left of the forum pages).

Site should also be much muuuuuuch faster. MacGameFiles.com also got transferred. The other sites are on their way over the next few days.

Sweet! The new iPhone scheme is nice — and finally has the option to get new posts. :)

I saw the "under maintenance" page all last night.  When I tried to navigate the site this morning I was plagued with:

Quote

Safari can’t open the page “http://www.insidemac...orum/index.php?” because the server unexpectedly dropped the connection. This sometimes occurs when the server is busy. Wait for a few minutes, and then try again.

I suffered through half a dozen of those messages and an hour wait just to post this.  Plus... the pages load   S L O W L Y.

Yes. Sorry about that, we are still doing the move, and working on the other sites as well, so things may be intermittently sluggish.

Right 'now' it should be spunky and fine, as we are messing with something else now.

BTW tBC, have fun in the new admin. Some things changed again from 3.0 to 3.1. They never leave anything alone do they ?!?!

Yes, it's picked up the pace a lot, I'm not having any problems now.  About the Admin Control Panel, though more functional, it looks more like it did in the very old version!

Awesome to see the IMG forums back. Also cool to now have two themes to pick from. The most fascinating difference I found was people's different avatars between the two themes.

No worries.  I have cleverly hidden my forbidden post.  I will start a new thread in the Super-Gods Uber Forum of Deth Talking about all the other new and frightening abilities we have.

Hey thanks for bringing the MADDs online Fm.  You didn't by chance get these from the Marathon Clearance Sale that Durandal was holding did you?  Cause, like, I don't want to die gargling blood.

I had a couple in storage that I raided from Hastur a while back. These should be good to go.

Well, there was one with green legs and a grenade launcher attachment that had a tendency to fly below the set 1.5 meter hover... I turned it off though after it sent a 40mm grenade into Eric's guts when all Eric was doing to offend it was using the mod control panel. Fortunately Eric has plenty of guts so the medical BoBs just removed the messed up bits and sewed him back up. No one's had the stomach to clean up that mess of red goo in the corner that's left from the incident though; we should have that taken care of soon. I think Eric ate Mexican again before that MADD shot him, and the captchas catch so many spammers these days that I think it might not get removed due to the forum's corpse sprite limit before it starts smelling.

Hm... this is odd. I never noticed these electrodes attached to my chair... what might they be good for?

Oops, my bad.  It seems that the lethal current is 0.2 milliamps not 4 amps.  Oh well, live and learn I suppose.  Regardless, we have a GREAT jpg of Janichsan with sparks dancing between his teeth to put on the admin trophy wall.  He's OK folks, he was shocked worse when he heard about Pee Wee Herman's sex scandal.  Still I need to dial this back to about 0.07 milliamps.  Please be patient folks while we calibrate the settings on the new forum.

That's OK.  Eric's made out of rubber.  I've used the Tantalus device to remove the gore, we've had ants in here before and I don't want to go through that again.

The IMG mail system is buggered.  Entourage has started giving me this message ever since the host change:
