Dearest Members of the Fountain Pen Network,

We will be doing some maintenance tonight, around 7 pm EST, 24:00 GMT / UTC in order to fix some minor issues. This implies that the board will not be available for approximately 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

Furthermore, tomorrow morning, Wednesday 2010-01-20, an upgrade to the forum software will be carried out, in order to fix a few further problems. This will happen around 2 or 3 am EST, 07:00 or 08:00 am GMT / UTC, and the outage may last for about 3 to 4 hours.

In the mean time, early this morning we have completed a few server software upgrades necessary to be able to continue receiving support, and to fix the image attachment problems. As a matter of fact, attaching images works again Posted Image.

Anyway, please be patient with us while fixing and updating at the indicated times, in the end it all serves a better experience here on this board.

Warm regards,

Thank you for all the work that you do, and especially for finding a way to fix the image attachment problem!

Individual topics within the forums looked okay, but the forum pages themselves displayed only the name of the last poster on the thread, nothing else.

Don't know if this has been corrected yet, and I only noticed it around 9PM EST.

I found out that there was about a 10 minute period where some settings were being adjusted and caused some glitches.
