Finally!!!!!!!!! The Forum is back.

Post by Charles L. Cotton »

I took the Forum down on Dec. 24th to do a software update. I backed up the site and started the process. There was a catastrophic failure and the backup file was apparently corrupted. That's when the fun began. I was able to fix some of the problems with help from folks on the phpBB support forum, but others were above my limited expertise. Luckily a man on the phpBB support form came to my/our rescue. His name is Robert but he goes by the username Lumpy Burgertushie. He has over 68,000 posts helping folks with their sites. Quite literally, he is the reason the Forum is back. Thank you Robert!!

Let me know if you see any problems folks.

Thank you Charles! I struggle with my little 6-page website. I can’t imagine what you went through.

Great! Thanks for all the work. I don't post much these days, but do check in and read often. With the TX Legislature kicking off, I WAS worried.

Thank you Charles. When the site first went down, I thought it would be a minor problem and be back up the next day. And it wasn't. After a few days, I was concerned that something had happened to you, not the forum. I finally found a reddit thread that explained it. I am glad you are okay and that the forum is now back up again.

I was afraid the liberal movement to quash the first amendment had taken another victim.
