    Default Forum "Offline" Maintenance Alert

    Sometime during the next week January 11 to 18, 2017, the Tourette Canada Forum will undergo software maintenance that will take the Forum offline for about 24 -48 hours.

    As soon as more precise information as to timing and duration is available, it will be posted here.

    I received notice that the new server has been built. I do have a question about the specifications which I will follow up tomorrow but if that is resolved it is just a matter of arranging with tech support to transfer all the accounts over to the new server.

    I will update you when I know more.

    UPDATE

    Contacted by tech support requesting proof that I am the owner of the server before they begin. Supplied this.

    They should be ready to begin soon now. When it happens, I may need to shut down the forum rapidly so be prepared.

    Well that was a very long and exhausting and frustrating process!

    It was a comedy of errors that was not at all funny. The host has a new support system that is filled with bugs and my support tickets were getting automatically closed every 48 hours whether anything had been fixed or not.

    But we are finally back online again.

    My apologies for the inconvenience and to all who were worried I had closed it down.

    As George Costanza used to say on Seinfeld, "We're back, baby!"
