Well, Happy Friday everyone. I hope everyone is safe and has some great plans lined up.
There are times that running a message board has it ups and downs. This is definitely one of the ups in TRF.
Thanks to our own Troj (Kevin), the TRF 1.0 database has been recovered! That's right it's been recovered and fixed. Let's hear it - Woohoo, Woohoo!!!
There are several steps that need to occur before we put it back on-line though, so please-please-please be patient. Some of those steps are direct and some indirect. So again, I'd ask you to please be patient and not keep inquiring of the date when it'll be back on-line. If I did have to give a swag I'd estimate one month.
While, to some, this could seem like an eternity we simply need to accomplish some things in the background both with backups, upgrades to our user panel & server, establishing a new URL for the TRF 1.0 archive, upgrading the forum software and applying a new skin. At the end of this is putting TRF 1.0 back up for archive purposes (meaning we won't be able to add to it).
Also, I'd like to add a special, sincere, and heartfelt THANK YOU to the moderation & admin staff here on TRF. Without their hard-charging, volunteer, efforts we would not be where we're at past and present. If these were paid positions, I'd be giving each one of them a significant mid-year bonus in their next paychecks.
So, let's look forward to seeing an archived copy of TRF 1.0 coming back up, along with some additional improvements within the next month or so.
Have a great weekend!
