Upgrading the forum / new host... stranger things!
« on: June 08, 2022, 10:33:48 AM »
Heys guys,
My web host provider urge me to move this website onto new servers, which also force me to upgrade this forum as it still running on a very looooow php version, long time out of support  :ghost: . So that's what I did since yesterday morning with almost no sleep  :roll:
Migration is almost done as you can see, and of course with side effects (lost of forum themes, gallery gone,...).
I currently working on that, so expect to see some strange things happened  :roll: ;D
In the meantime, do not hesitate to contact me if you experience bugs or anything else:::

Belike

Thanks :spaceace: so many things happened here ...The arcade scene during the 2000s was the best era for me! Impossible to let all that stuff goes away... a duty of conservation! Forums are still there for us, the dinosaurs of the arcade scene...  ;D I'm kind of lost between all these youtube channels & social networks...  :pac:  :ghost: :ghost: :ghost: :ghost:

It's nice to see some of you still coming here from time to time  :-* ...even if the place is now quite quiet  :oops: Well, I should rename this forum "the sea of tranquility"?  :lol:

Thanks for the feedback  :). My main concerns is the display the pictures inside the forum, as they are all still 'hard tagged' to 'htttp', but it seems that all browsers see now that there is a certificate and convert the image link to https. All the check I've done are good (after browser refresh or cache clear), but still looking for your feed back to know if I missed something.  8)

Same error here. Solved by refreshing and logging in.
Some of my pics are gone, but I think is because in the meantime hosts sites I used have gone.
Thanks Bruno for keeping this alive: I can still find my 10+ years old posts and recently I needed one of them for a "memory refresh"  ;D

This site was there in the golden days of the hobbie, youtube was not  :spaceace:

Yeah...everything must be preserved, as much as possible  :) ...which is not so easy in this crazy digital world we are living now  :-\
Great to see you still around mate  ;)
