There may be some board downtime today as we do some back-end work on the old server.

I have a question...

Why did we switch to a new board, if all the functions are dissabled. I though we were going to switch so that search and other functions will be available without slowing down the process.

When the new Server is switched online, I'm pretty sure some of the features will be re-enabled.

A lot of the new features are too CPU/RAM intensive for the current box.

Patience my son :D

The switch to the new software has overloaded the existing server. To keep the existing server running at all, many of the features of the new board software had to be turned off - especially at peak times.

I bought a new server (the new girlfriend) and we are in the process of configuring it before I send it to our service provider to be plugged into their rack.

Once that has happened and we have tested it, we will move the board onto it from its existing location on the 'old server'.

The new server has enough power to handle our current loads and then some so many of the features of the board software will be turned on permentantly (like searching).

Other features will be disabled because they are just too 'flaming and spinning' for my liking.

The goal of the board interface is to make it as bland as possible so as to fit in inconspiculously in an office environment (so members can be on the board all day at work without getting hassled).

Our strength is in the membership, not in the interface. The real impact of TRIBE has always been in the amazing membership. Our members are what makes the board interesting, not glitzy features.

it would be nice if the signature feature worked. i don't want to post a silly picture as my sig everytime, just a url. but perhaps that is what you do not want.

Step 1 is over. Just finished configuring the new server: another 6 hours of intense geeking. Have implemented pHp accelerator which should make for a very fast board.

Step 2. Tomorrow she goes to the service provider.
