    Forum software upgrade

    I upgraded the Yabb software to the latest and greatest version. Hopefully it will solve some of the problems we've been having, but most likely created new ones. I'll try to fix them as they come up.

    It seems to be running a lot faster. Cool.
    It uses different cookies, so you have to log in again. Not so cool.

    i noticed the cookies and was like hrmm why am i logged out. so i logged back in and mistyped my password and it didn't show up in clear text! good deal.

    the cookies is only a minor hassel. the update was a good idea

    I think something is broken. It is taking a lot of time to load, and the latest threads are not showing in the main page.

    I also got a bunch of mysql error messages. Very weird. Thanks for upgrading, though. I appreciate all the hard work that you go through keeping this site up and running. Hopefully the various new glitches will be easily worked out.

    Cheers

    Coincidentally, right after I did the upgrade I got this on the server:
    [cloverm@mech www]$ df -h
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda5 31G 30G 28k 100% /
    /dev/sda1 99M 81M 13M 86% /boot
    none 629M 0 629M 0% /dev/shm
    /dev/sda3 289M 32M 242M 12% /tmp

    I reported it to phpwebhosting. They must have cleaned up some stuff, but I requested a permanent solution (a bigger hard drive?).

    Wow I can notice a big performance increase. If I could ask for one thing though, it would be to get more recent posts back. I, more or less, lived and died by the Recent Posts. Oh well I guess if not, then I'll just have to come to the forum more often!!! ;D

    It is running faster, and it looks better.
