    Re: UP and Running

    The forum should be back working. Some parts of the site still need upgrades. I would wait a few days for things to settle down before posting anything that you do not want to loose..

    I’m very upset that the website was away for so long. We had a simple plan close the website, copy the files, set up the new website, verify everything was working and re-open the website (8 hours max). If there were any problems we would go back to the old system. In the event when it was clear the new website was not fit our old supplier was unable to re-instate the old website. I’m not sure why but lack of incentive may have paid a part.

    We took the opportunity to upgrade our software as part of the move. An upgrade was well overdue. A compatibility inconsistency between the various versions of software caused an unanticipated delay to the upgrade. I had no inkling that the well established software we use could be so flaky. The software developers had to provide fixes and upgrades to get the system functioning. As I type this they are still try to sort out our membership system. Please don’t renew your membership here for a while.

    As Marlin owners I’m sure everyone will understand that upgrades are not always as straight forward as planned.

    Known to be a problem and I hope it has been fixed.

    That's good. I only raised it in case you weren't aware. I'll let you know if I see it again.

    Yes well done Paul, I think I suggested it'd take 3/4 times longer than expected, in that regard IT is very like working on old cars!

    An interesting little bug.
    It appears that in many historical posts, where people have used apostrophes, they are being replaced by a symbol as below.

    Season�s greetings

    Not vital but some posts are riddled with
    �. Is this post similarly ‘impacted’.
    It looks ok as I type.

    Loads of Marlin Reference can be found documents here or there.

    Hi Paul,
    Many thanks for effort and your time spent getting the website/forum up and running again, it is greatly appreciated, and is a something that I have no knowledge on how to do myself.

    Steve, I can see a diamond with a white question mark within it, is that what you are referring to?
