Houston, we have a problem (site update January 24, 2016)

As some of you may have noticed, the vBulletin forum that the site automatically redirects to has crashed and gone boom, like certain failed Mars probes.

The site was running a very old version of vBulletin and may have been hacked/died of old age or had something else happen to it. I am not a database expert so the investigation is akin to a surgeon using boxing gloves. Except the surgeon is not really a surgeon, he’s just an intern.

Nonetheless, the site should now redirect to this WordPress blog which will at least provide updates on this undesirable situation.

Further updates soon™.

  1. I’d be okay with going to a pure WordPress blog format, provided we can lock it down enough to prevent bot posting, but allowing members can post and comment.

  2. Oh, I could easily create a new forum. In fact, I already have! I’ve been less successful in importing the data from the existing vBulletin installation, but I have a few more things to try before giving up.
