Forum upgrades this weekend

Post by solarchat »

In the never ending attempt to restrain the constant hackers, fix the non-working email and to keep everything as secure as possible, we are doing some PhP and forum software upgrades starting today. Hopefully, you won't notice anything different except working emails.

Thank you Stephen for the advice and hopefully you will get it sorted.

I also now have an observatory-computer snag to sort-out, so that machine may be down for a (short) while...

Terry
