Okay, the performance now is far, far better, and the new look makes it clear that something has changed.

My only regret is that it's going to be a bitch of a time finding and catching up on those topics that I was tracking before. ::

Thanks, Neil!

Much faster and better look and feel. And glad to hear you're on a mySQL database. You should be rockin' now!

Another minor problem:

When you subscribe to topics, all posts seem to be sequentially numbered, regardless of which forum or thread they're in.

Example:

Forum:About This Site

Yea guys I'm aware of all the post problems. I'm not sure but the backup that I created when the forum started having its serious issues didn't finish all the topics in all the forums and while rescuing I may have double imported some of the stuff. So you'll find holes of missing stuff and some double stuff. The forum software was under such stress that it didn't properly run the backup, I feel terrible about the loss, but I may not be able to restore much of those threads.

If everyone is able to login, I'm grateful. What caused the crash was corruption in the member list. That and the fact that we were using text files for a database and they were too big for thier own good. We're now running off a mySQL database and it is quite capable of growing with us  We should have made this transition a year or two ago, and we could have avoided this - but only hindsight is 20/20 right.

I appreciate your patience for the outage and I hope it will remind you what a valuable place this is due to all of your contributions!
Here's what happened, per Neil.

At least now the forum should work as intended.
