No. I may have been tweaking the DB and something got saved wrong. Maybe my host is jacking with server settings. I'll look into it.

Was over at the New City today. It kind of reminds me of one of those places in Spain that was built but is deserted. Still, like the effort to make it look like this old place.

A conversion was just too much effort. Square peg / round hole. The existing software convertors out there didn't fit with our data, I don't have the expertise with the current software(s) to write my own
convertor.

I would like to drag us out of the ancient past software-wise someday, but it will have to be the job of an expert, and one that I will have to pay for.

UBB 6.6.1 here is sort of like a well-loved classic car. You can keep it shiny and drive it around, but parts become increasingly hard to find. the core product was developed in 1996, and 6.6.1 is an early 200's vintage. I agree it works great as WGw keeps the paint polished and the bearings greased. But should it ever throw a rod, we'll be stranded.

That said, the 'new city' looks great and all, and should the time ever come where this fine classic can't steam forth, it would be a good alt to go to even if everything can't be converted over. Just my 2¢....
