    I am thinking about just jumping in and getting this upgrade done. It looks like there will be a few things missing once the transfer takes place, but it will be a huge improvement over what we've got now. I have been patching holes for these spammers and feel like my time would be better spent upgrading and then seeing how the spammers handle the new version.

    Long story short: I am thinking about shutting everything down later tonight. This *should* allow us to back up and running tomorrow morning with the new version. I can't guarantee a time, but I'll have to shut things down sometime between 10 pm and midnight Central Time.

    After the forum is switched back on in the morning, I will be applying customizations so the final "new & improved" version will be a work in progress.

    Not having to prowl for spammers on the graveyard shift sounds like a fine idea. Go for it!

    It looks like we have about 20-30 min left. Say goodbye to 2005 styling. :lol:

    It looks like we'll have at least another 15 minutes. I keep finding things I can import without having to shut down yet. :)
