Default ALERT: Forum closing

The DTP forum will be closed
for maintenance and updates:

Sunday, 27 January 2008
beginning at 4:30 p.m. EST
(10:30 p.m. GMT)

Unfortunately, we cannot set the exact starting time. Nor its duration. With luck, this work will take a couple of hours or less, but we cannot make any promises! This is computer stuff, after all!

Our goal is to make the forum work better for all of us.

During that time you will not be able to access the DTP Forum.

Thanks for your patience, friends.

Welcome back. And thank you for all the hard work. And for the nice new wide-body quick reply window <g>

There were server problems just after we completed the upgrade, so we apologise for the yo-yo effect on access here for a couple of hours.

As for the wide-body quick reply window, we aim to please.

Well, looks like I missed all the fun and everything seems its serene natural self this morning.

Well done and many thanks to those who sorted it out.

Yes, the server is working again now. It was a short-term hiccup. Just not well-timed considering our newly-upgraded status.

That's certainly an improvement, but the normal reply window is still "narrow" (though wide enough for me) and there are some other quirks in different blocks having different widths now.

But that's all cosmetic - the forum still works for me as well as it did before (I never had any real problems).

We have made no changes since the update. So what you see is what vB wants us to get.

We will probably check this out later, once the dust settles.

We cannot work on details right now, but I too noticed the various widths of windows, windows jutting out, all that. Manaña for that level of detail, however!
