Yes, well then, I recommend this, so called 'life', be tracked down and shot at the very first convenience if it's going to continue being a distraction around here.

I thought we already did that part.

Isn't that why we're all here?

Now why would you want to do that? It's the most amusing part of the forum. I guess you would rather have threads debunking the tired issue of homeopathy etc.

And dowsing. Don't forget dowsing. It would be homeopathy and dowsing. That's all we need.

Oh, and bigfoot. Bigfoot, homeopathic and dowsing.

I'm posting this here -- I'm not seeing ANY comments about this anywhere else -- because I wanted to at least take notice:

The server will be coming down at approximately 0000UTC Oct 5 (1800MDT Oct 4) for migration to the final server and domain name. The process should take a few hours but may take more. The new URL will be http://www.internationalskeptics.com/forums.
About five hours away and then the forum will probably be down until tomorrow morning some time?

I always get nervous when these kinds of things happen. I always hope for the best but expect the worst.

Goodbye JREF forum it's been real!

So, the deal is? After the change over we log on to the new site or will we be redirected from here?

I'm too lazy at this point to see if instructions have been given and I just now changed my registered email from one that's been extinct for atleast 5 years.

Is there going to be a super secret hand shake to get in?

Will you tell it to me if I promise to stay out of religion and politics?

After the changeover there'll be an automatic redirect to the new site, as well as instructions on the old site in case the redirect doesn't work for some reason.

When first entering the new site you'll be prompted with the updated T&C to agree to, and then there'll be further instructions on how to migrate over your personal information if you so choose.

In New York we're on Daylight Savings time so I calculated the change as being two hours and thirty-four minutes from now.

Ok they're imported, I think I chose the wrong one as the default style too, so changed that.

Yeah, links still aren't working properly. I assume this is still being sorted out. Default color scheme is bad. And that tiny little header graphic with International Skeptics is pretty sad. .

I know there are peeps working on this, though.

Wonder what traffic will be like? How many people will bail?

Right now the listing is showing 65 members logged in. Fewer than normal I think but that's to be expected. When did the forum come back on-line anyway?

Hm, probably right around 10pm Mountain Time, so like 20 minutes ago.

I started a thread here for links and theme stuff, I haven't found where those forum links at the top left are from lol.
