I just realized the maximum post character count was reverted from 100,000 (the maximum) to 5,000 in the upgrade.  Fixed it!

Sorry about the extended downtime today.  Three Rivers lost power from 9:00am to around 1:00pm and I forgot to set the web server to auto-boot.  I've corrected that issue, so the web server will once again automatically boot following any extended power outages.

I'm going to be doing some work on the server this weekend, so the forum will be running slow at times and down entirely at other times.  It'll be faster than ever once it's back, though, which is great for all two of us that use it!

Doing some software upgrades on the web server today, so expect more slowness/downtime.  It's currently running on Server 2012 R2 (the analogue to Windows 8) and the UI is god-awful, so it's time for an upgrade!

The FTP and web server were down due to some network shenanigans.  Apologies!

The forum and FTP server will be down tomorrow from ~7:30am until sometime tomorrow afternoon.  We're getting our electrical service upgraded from 100 amp to 200 amp, which requires replacing the breaker panel, electrical meter, and the main line running to the house.

We'll have a few more hours of downtime tomorrow to wrap up the electrical work.

The forum and FTP will be down intermittently over the holiday weekend while I completely rebuild my home network.  I picked up a new four-post network rack and a used UPS, router, and firewall to replace the absurdly old stuff I'm using now.  The current router and firewall were installed in 2010, so they've had a good run!

I'll post pics!

(...also gets to install a 30-amp outlet for the UPS.  Yay?)

I'm still whittling away on the network migration.  The new UPS, battery pack, router, and the first of three PDUs (fancy power strips) have been installed.  I've also moved over the core switch and wireless LAN controller.  I've got the new firewall racked (and holy crap is it heavy), but still need to complete the configuration, so I've got this Frankensteinian abomination of cables running between the new and old racks.

There will be some additional downtime (tomorrow?) for a few hours as I migrate to the new firewall, and some very short intermittent downtime next week as I dress all the cables.
