The theme gets reset every time you upgrade. I have to rebuild the theme.

Wanted to get the important stuff working first. :)

Here I was wondering "It's sliiightly different... was there an update to things?"

And sure enough, there was. Although, I wish it was a bit more compact. Too bad there's not a way to choose the theme...

Wow. Who knew? It's an excellent look, lots more tools now (sorting, etc.). Excellent job, Greg.

The previous approach seemed to be to not change anything, i.e. run the oldest versions possible. Which makes upgrading really painful, lol

No doubt. At least for Greg lol. He's the tech guy! He started early this afternoon. More changes coming. The 503 errors should ease now.

surprising that they have kept the database online and site up without data loss, pointer loss, or going into "read-only" mode.

Looks like still running some version of phpbb 3.x.
