.....just an update....

I am not the tech person, as you all well know, but I think our new host transferred the board to their servers some time this morning. The result of this has been some small data loss - by my estimation posts made between 7pm and 1am GMT (1pm - 7pm EST) have been lost. While this is naturally annoying, we were prepared for a greater time lag, so the new host has been pretty efficient.

You may notice some things are a little different than usual - there are avatars missing because the address has changed, etc.....so please bear with us while we get the details sorted out.

No doubt Sheila will explain this far more clearly than me, but just wanted to warn you all about possible missing posts and the explanation!

love Jillie xxxxxxxxxx

Oh, as a further note, it seems that not all members will make the jump to our new servers at the same time. As it stands atm, if you can read this you are on the new server, but there are some whose ISP hasn't yet picked up the new location. This means that if you can't see some regulars atm the chances are they are still on the 'parallel dimension' BtB, but will be joining us shortly. Oh, and btw, this includes Sheila!

I thought I would mention this just in case anyone is worried about someone being missing or perhaps not responding to pm's. I hope before long we will all be together again....

love Jill xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

So here's a random question..... does the parallel universe BtB still have the posts that vanished for those of us who are here? Was thinking of the 'reaching out my hand' thread, cause I know a few people's responses vanished....

Having weird parallel universe thoughts.... :con:

Yeah, I think it will have those posts, and if necessary we can probably retrieve anything important manually. I was sorry to see those posts go too.

As far as I know Sheila is STILL stuck in the parallel universe......lmfao

Figures, have the cool kids jump over first and let the rest hang in the paralell univers for a while :lol:

And sinse I just came back from watching the " The Golden Compass" movie, does these universes also involve Dust? And will we have to send Daniel Craig to fight with polar bears to get the universes connected?

Hmmm,

Whose avatars, other than yours Jillie, are missing??

I do still have access to the posts that are missing but I won't be moving them over as it entails too much work and kinda defeats the purpose of having the new host move things for me.... If there was anything posted that someone would like a copy of, PM me with the details on what it was and I can try sifting through the database to find it.

That is so funny that you are calling the old board a parallel universe, that's exactly how I described it to Bacchus when we were there.

I'm just glad I'm here now, hopefully I don't find myself back over there again, it's too quiet there.

See, we BtB'ers think alike, even when separated by dimensions of space and time!

:lol:

I'm not seeing any new posts at the old space so I am assuming we've all been redirected now........ It can take up to 72 hours to be redirected here and that should be up by now as I made the change to the DNS on the late morning/early afternoon of the 6th of December..... Last posts at the old server were Bacchus and Tantalus being stuck in the parallel universe.... :wink:

Love

Sheila

Does Santa have to deliver packages to every parallel dimension? Or are there parallel Santas that do this?

Where is Stephen Hawking when you need him......

I still am missing all icons, but I'm using the "Desert" skin (I've tried a few, didn't want the Christmas one, wasn't in the spirit). Like all the pictures (icons next to "Fast Reply", "Quote Post" for example) have a box with a red x in it. I can easily work with it but not sure what I did or didn't do ....
