TL;DR - Board going down for updates sometime. It'll hopefully come back up.
So, the board software is FINALLY getting an update. More for security reasons than any sort of feature updates (There may be feature updates too, but they're just a happy side-effect).
There's going to be a couple of unhappy side-effects too.
1) The new version doesn't support old board styles, so the colour scheme is going to revert back to bog standard until I modify a new one to something similar that I'm happy with
2) There's going to be downtime whilst the upgrade happens. I can't give an exact time on this, and I'm not sure exactly how long it'll take. It's a relatively small database in the grand scheme of things, so I'm hoping not long. Hoping I can get to it this evening.
3) There's a small chance it's all going to go titsup and destroy the board. I have made backups just in case this happens. So at the very worst it'll just take a little more downtime whilst I bring back the backup. Hopefully. Or it may just fail catastrophically and you'll come along and find a new board with no posts on it, except perhaps an apology from the halfassed webmaster.
