  1. Awesome. Thought as much. Thanks. This topic can be ignored 🙂
  2. Jacko can you do me a favor? Click on the little lock up on the address bar, then click on Certificate and then tell me what it says for VALID FROM... looking for the second date. It should be May 28... but I strongly suspect my antivirus is hijacking the certificate and showing a cached copy.
  3. Just warning you guys... it appears as if the new SSL certificate I just installed may not be working. Problem is... it should be. And I do not fully understand why its showing an expiration date of tomorrow, since the files that do expire tomorrow were deleted as part of the install process, and the server has even been rebooted since then... so I am hoping that it cycles over once the expiration hits? if not, it will go down temporarily until I can fix it. If that just happens to happen ~12 hours from now, the downtime may be a few hours. I will be at a concert and inaccessible. I think we have more time than that... and I will continue looking at it for the next hour or so, but wanted to post a warning just in case.
  4. Good idea, but did not work. Killed my cookies, relogged in and its still broken for me. Waiting for word from support.
  5. I did do a forum update a little over 24 hours ago. That may have done it. Ill look at the reports on the forums support site and see what peeps are saying.
  6. Glad thats fixed... now I just have to fix the underlying problem. That upgrade group is people that are supposed to be moving from Member to Participant. But for some reason their permissions are not the same as Member. Ill see if I can fix that today at least.
  7. Well... it turns out your jest was on point. You have... erm.. had... no heart. And by heart I mean group. Fixing it now. Should be fixed by the time you read this... assuming the 3 or 4 tons of new years celebration juice still running thru my system doesn't throw an extra ass in where the heart should be.
  8. mouse over the heart right over there ----------------------------------->>>
  9. ok, funny story here. So... I got a notice about 12 hours ago that my SSL for ptalk was going to expire "in 1 day". I immediately posted that last post... thinking to myself "damn, if I had done x when I set this server up, this damn SSL would be handled automatically when needed". So I thought... fuck it, lets do this one manual-like and then fix the problem going forward. That way I don't stupidly let it expire before remembering to renew it hurriedly after a really wonderful mod sends you a SMS while your sleeping. Ill just leave it at that and file it under "DOH!"... and go back to sleep. 🙂
  10. Hi guys, So... taking control of this site and the associated server was quite the learning experience, as many of you remember. I know much more about how it all works and more importantly what it needs to do that work than I did when I first set this server up. The result of that is that the server itself - the hardware and core operating system - are not very well optimized for running this forum software. On top of that, there is a pretty large update available for the forums that I need to upload. So... I have decided to try to upgrade the hardware at the same time. The bad part of that is there may well be as much as a hour of downtime when I do the move. There will not be any DNS issues since it will still have the same IP address, but with new hardware and new OS come new potential problems to solve, so... we will see. I will update this post when I start the process, and when its done.
  11. ok, there were a shitload of updates... all done and server rebooted. Hopefully that helps.
  12. Been a long while since I did updates and a server reboot. I will do that now. Wont take long.
  13. Your upgraded. No more moderation 🙂 Welcome to the forum. Look forward to seeing you on some of our barcrawls in Jan.
  14. No you have not... I have just been very busy and not activated your account yet. I am doing so now... will be done by the time you read this 🙂
  15. Your account is now active. Welcome to the (unmoderated) forums 🙂
  16. its a secondary validation... described in a post you were sent to right after you registered. Here is a link to it:
  17. Brexit is likely to make that worse, not better. At least initially. And when you get a chance, please follow the instructions for activating your account... that will remove your posting restrictions and remove you from moderation. 🙂
  18. Board has been updated to 4.4.6, and the SSL certificate has been renewed.
  19. Sadly all on the bus perished and are waiting in line at the pearly gates. St Peter approaches the first girl in line. "Mary Margaret, I have one question for you, and it is of the utmost importance that you answer truthfully. Have you ever touched a penis?" Mary blushed a little bit. "Well, yes, I have. I once reached into a boys pants and touched his penis with the tip of my finger. But that was all." "Very well Mary. Dip your finger into this holy water and then you may enter Heaven." St Peter then approaches the next girl in line. "Anne Beth, have you ever touched a penis?" "Yes, I once reached in a boys pants and grabbed his penis." "Very well," said St Peter "Dip your hand in holy water and enter the Kingdom of Heaven. At this point in time there is a commotion in the back of the line, as one of the girls is pushing her way up the line. "Katherine Anne, you need to wait till it's your turn." St Peter strictly informed the girl. "No, I'm not staying in the back of the line. There's no way I'm rinsing my mouth out with that holy water if Karen has to wash her ass out with it first!"
  20. Annnnnnd.... in true Murphy fashion less than a day after upgrading our forums a new 4.4.6 update comes out... and its marked as a urgent security update. So ill be upgrading us yet again in the next day or so. I do not expect any downtime at all, same as the last one.
  21. The board has been updated to 4.4.5 successfully. Unpinning this topic now.
  22. I assume your talking about your Signature. Up at the top on the right, look for your username with a down arrow. Click that, click Profile... and its in there under Signature.
