UGN Security will be upgrading our BBS to the newest version of UBB.Classic on Sunday night. Note that we may experiance some slight downtime as a direct result of this upgrade but it will be temporary and should last for no more than 24 hours.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to append them to this post on the bulletin board.

lol nope. I found out upgrading the board at DCTalkSolo (yeh I do some work with them) that there may be some issues with the memberfiles.

So, I figure, I'll upgrade late Sunrday night, file a ticket with Infopop early Monday morning, and have it fixed by Monday night...

Damnit! The upgrad is an UPGRADE nothing will be lost or missing! Missing anything is not an issue. The problem there may be is with misformed profile fields which will be worked on monday morning; none of you should even realise any real change becides a small downtime of the board; where the IRC will of coarse be up.

Upgrade is complete; all went through as planned. The last "big wait" was on infopop to strip the extra profile fields which went beautifully. Special thanks to Kate at Infopop .
