Attention race fans! Tonight we will be taking the forums offline to migrate to a newer, faster forum application (phpbb for you geeks out there). This should give us a faster forum that's also easier to manage and maintain. The current application (UBB.classic) is about 5 years old and is starting to show its age. I believe we have replicated all of the features and doodads from UBB, but there's always a chance I missed something. If you have trouble getting into the new forum, you can use the handy dandy specmiata.com "Send Feed Back" link to let me know. Why not spend your evening with someone special who doesn't obsess over valve shims and camber angles?

Let's say the festivities will begin around 9PM Central time. That sounds good.

Good news -- the forum has seemed really sluggish lately. Would you be open to some minor enhancements after the change, or do you plan to just leave it "stock"?

It depends on your definition of "minor." PM me what you're interested and I'll look into it.

Thanks Jim. I'm assuming the software will operate differently anyway, so I'll wait 'til the dust settles.

Jim,

Will all the existing posts be migrated over to the new system? Searching that history is very helpful.

Any new system we move to will definitely preserve posts as well as private messages.
