Exclamation PMBug changes are coming

This website is using a forum software that reached end of life a few years ago. It's been plugging away without problems, but it's no longer developed or supported.

I'm once again upgrading the server hardware that powers the site and the new server hardware is going to be running the very latest stable version of PHP, MySQL, etc. This current forum software won't run in that environment, so I'm going to be migrating the forum to a new platform.

The new platform will work more or less the same. Some functions will work slightly differently. The look and feel will be noticably different. There will be some new functionality as well.

The switch to the new platform will likely happen sometime in the next week or two. This is just a heads up that if you see the site shut down for a day or two, it's because the site is being migrated to it's new home. Don't panic.

Phew

when I read the thread title, I wondered if the commitment to continue was wobbling.

Thank you for your efforts and work keeping things up to date Bug.

I'm a bit puzzled that we are not seeing a steady flow of newbies as the metals are really beginning to shine right now.

Will they wake up and show up or has the last 6 years totally killed positive sentiment in those who might be concerned about their investments ?

Based upon what I see, most non-bugs are perplexed about the recent stock market drop and mad at Trump for the trade war with China that's hurting their portfolios. I don't know that deeper issues about debt, interest rates, the bond markets, recession signals, central bank gold buying, Brexit/EU, Deutsche Bank, etc. have reached fertile ground yet. IMO, we're still in the "just getting started" phase.

Update: The wheels have been turning slowly, but my server guy finally got the situation with a dedicated email server straightened out. A new server for the site itself is in the rack. This weekend I'm migrating a different site I own to the new server. If all goes well, I plan to move pmbug to the new server (and software) next weekend.

OK. This project fell off the map as my server guy has been busy with other projects. But the site has been moved to a new server in a new colo. The pmbug email system wasn't working for the last 24 hours or so, but should be working again (now). I am planning on migrating the site very soon now (like a for real two weeks this time).

pmbug was offline for a few hours this morning. Little snafu trying to update a script and the recent server move threw a wrench in things. All is well now though.

Its all been pretty seamless for me Bug.
If you hadnt told us, I would have not been aware of these most recent changes.
