    Wow, seems like just the other day we were discussing moving from `YOYO' to a nice phpBB! In case those bean counting bozos at yuk won't cough up reimbusement, I'd be willing to pay freight here. Anyway, glad to see the migration proceeding so well!! Thanx, Chickchair/Nifty-Chicken!!

    Ivan,

    Welcome to the new forum! How do you like it so far?

    So, what's yoyo? And the move to phpBB, was that with Garm? Give me more details, I'm totally interested in all the history stuff.

    Ummm....ChickenMaster

    I think Ivan means YoYo= Yuku & phpBB=PunBB. Don't worry, I'm sure you will catch on. You seem quick on the learning curve. [​IMG]

    Thanx, LCRT! Sorry, Chickenmaster! Over on EZ, sometime back, we were discussing (EZ/YUKU) and their apparent inability to hotswap servers and whether or not they really did retool their backup schema (we joined BYC/EZ just after they crashed and burned - what posts????). So, I'm pleased that we now know exactly who is guarding the coop!

    Site use is just about transparent and that is just about as good a compliment as exists (most info./utility with the fewest number of mouseclicks/keystrokes!!!)

    Oh, and will be happy to pay for the privilege, i.e., membership fees.

    Keep up the good work!!

    Thanks Ivan!

    BTW, you sound pretty up and up with the tech aspects of things, is that a correct assessment?

    Rob, I'm just an old in-house relational db app writer from the days of DOS2, when Paradox and DB were the tools dujour. KISS was survival. So, yeah, I keep up out of habit. And, old fogey that I am (time and not memory now the constraining variable), I'm even less tolerant of excess masquerading as necessity (and to think-my sister-in-law is climbing the corporate ladder in Redmond - the horror...).

    (for those thinking I'm referring to glam rockers: KISS=Keep It Simple Stupid)

    You have a good evening, Rob
