Hoooooorayyyyyy!!!!

if anyone wants to play, and find problems that would be great. I will start converting all the modern posts over and then hopefully in a couple of weeks when we have a new server we can convert over.

Dave, how does the conversion work ?...do you not just import everything in one fell swoop ?...does THIS site have to be ' down ' to be able to transfer all the posty goodness ?

Basically I copy the Access database, convert it to a mysql database, then run it through a somewhat slow script (which took about 4 hours on 1/3 of the posts we have now) and then dump the database into the new forum. This doesn't necessarily need this site to be down, but I will probably turn it off over night (with warning) as otherwise we will loose any posts made between me taking the Access database and converting to the new site. I could try and do some clever stuff which would update things with recent posts, but the odds of things going wrong will be increased...

looks like you got everything sorted out, but i'll just add my 2 cents that i got in as well.

p.s. hi MissMontana, always fun to see people from the old school (other than neil) on here!

Are YOUR mice nude? ;)
