This has been a hectic two days with a botched move to a new server (fixed) and an update to the latest version of UBB threads and a stupid decision on my part to shut down the political discussion board that has been hosting a debate for more than 26 years.

RR is NOT SHUTTING DOWN! The board is open again while I work out some problems with layout and appearance.

Please be patient as I try to work out these final problems.

Jeez, Doug. You bring a tear to my eye.


You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.

Maybe we should get an administrator and start accepting new members again? I know a pretty reasonable evangelical christian who might like to join...

And yeah...Doug...thanks...this place means a lot to me. I'm still happy to help out any way I can.

Hizzah!!!!!!! RR is back.

To be honest Doug. I was really sad about RR leaving and not being a part of my life any more as it has been for the past 16 years.

I'll be the administrator for the time being. It will make me have to pay more attention to the place. Thanks to the moderators who have hung in there, maybe we can get things going again.

Is it possible to put out an email blast saying that RR is back, alive and kicking, to all registered non-banned Members?

Hmm

So I assume this a freeware forum program running on the new server?


We're flying electric helicopters on Mars yet you can't turn on your clothes dryer in Texas. That's because scientists are in charge of Mars, and Republicans are in charge of Texas.

Nossir.

Doug bought the update, installed it, moved us to the new server, did countless hours of work rebuilding the page. We are complete, intact, updated, and our future here assured for the time being.

I haven't spoken with Doug. I have never spoken with Doug. We have a private forum for Mods and Admins to talk about administrative stuff...he puts the same announcements there but hasn't answered my replies.

He's a busy man and hasn't been an active member of this forum for a decade. I'm just thankful he did all this for us.

I wish he'd come back and hang out a bit and I'm going to try to make an effort to spend a little more time over on the news side. The whole concept of this forum was that we would read the news there, then come here to rant about it.

It's probably possible and I thought Jeffery might be able to figure those controls out. We haven't had a pilot who knew how to fly this thing since Skyhawk died.

Can we get some funding mechanism going to help defray his costs? I don't think ReaderRant does that much for Doug. Those of us who use it might want to help pay for it.
