It seems that none of the e-mails I can find on VitaminZach are current, so we won't be able to get pckf.com's DNS updated soon. I might have to try the postal system. The PCKF's database will move as scheduled, but for a while the new incarnation will be visible only at pckf.rigeltechnical.com. What's currently there is just the default phpBB 2 forum, so please don't register there now; it will be populated with this site soon and your current login will work. I'll try to do something about intra-site links in post bodies, but no guarantees there.

I'll be hanging out in #pckf on irc.foonetic.net today, where I'll keep you up to date on major status changes. 150 minutes left before the start of the migration!

Under three hours left until it starts! Well that's exciting!

I have used bulk mySQL database editors before, although they were tied to a specific CMS. Using such a tool, you might be able to update intra-site links using a simple search and replace command. Restricted to post content only, of course.

It's going to take a while for me to get used to this, but this is so cool!

Woohoo! Looks like everything's functional now! Are there plans to try to restore the old PCKF styling/logo/etc.?

Thank you, Fleexy, for doing this! ;) It looks pretty good, although as keenmaster486 said, are there any plans on attempting to restore the old PCKF stuff? I would like to at least see the default banner used right now get switched to a different banner.

It's on the right and not the left, AUGH!

But other than that, works well.

Personally, I think that's great. Some might say it's too crowded and colorful. But I differ. :goth

I am currently in South Australia away from home, back on topic, i've just been to pckf.com and nothing but the root index remaining no phpbb, i actually had to go through google to get here as the links on my pc tablet are outdated, i will update my bookmarks right after i finish this post, i just thought you'd all like to know about the domain Fleexy can't update until next year, as it is when it is due for expiry and when finally he can make it his!

I also volunteer as host. I would use shared hosting; it's very inexpensive, especially if the community tosses some change at it every so often. That would avoid any problems with other e-mail systems on the same IP.
