    Just crossed another item off the list. Ensuring the email system works instantaneous so people can retrieve passwords.

    Next I'm working on an updated avatar gallery.

    Looking at the draw, I think we will do change over after our next trial but before Round 1.

    Hi everybody. I wanted to give you an update on when we will change over.

    Ideally it would have been pre-season. The next best time would be during our BYE week in Round 2 but before Round 3 teams are named.

    We will take a snapshot of the forum Database then and use that for the site. The one I've been working with is from a month ago. But proves its in good order.

    So I am thinking Saturday evening, 16 March. I will announce a specific time later.

    It should be seamless and timely. But worst cause there are hours or day lap time in me taking it across. In that case, this forum will still be visible and you can cut/paste your posts that may have missed the boat.

    I've been taking my time with this, trying to get it right with the future in mind. Also been busy with work.

    I am thankful for your patience and will repay it.

    Go mighty Titans!

    UPDATE

    So that didn't exactly work out and took me a little longer. Also I had some personal stuff to deal with this week.

    1. The database is working great. So all the posts and threads are intact. Big cheer.
    2. I didn't manage to update it with the new posts since my last database save. I originally said it would be last Saturday or Sunday.
    3. Email System: This is because of the email system. We use that for password reminders and username registrations. You can imagine when we move over to new software, many people may need a new password. But unfortunately the first/default email system wasn't working because the emails were hours and hours late or didn't arrive at all due to being flagged as spam by google. That really pissed me off actually. I couldn't go forward with it behaving like that.
    4. So I had to experiment with two other, much better email delivery systems. (This is what I was doing this week). I'm using one that directly links and authenticates with gmail now. And the emails arrive straight away. (I just tested it again, to be sure.)
    5. With that done, I got another database save from last night. And I hope to have that online tonight or tomorrow.

    Thanks for your patience. When it happens, I will post an announcement with info and URL of the new forum on the topic of this forum.

    Let's hope we can celebrate with a win.

    Hi Titans fans

    So I got things to a point last Friday where it was just where I wanted it. But just like Icarus who flew too close to the sun and the heat melted the wax on his wings. I wanted just a little bit more. So waited a couple of days and wanted to backup after the last game. Anyway. Instruction manuals told me to do it one way and I thought I knew better. And instead of the backup upload taking a few hours it took days. I ended up quoting after two. Unfortunately that all took up the five or so days I wanted to do this over and now Iím over in Japan for Easter.

    But as Iíve said before. The good news is that everything works and I did get it to a point where I was really happy and I should have just did the change over. Live and learn. And it is a learning experience too.

    I just wanted to let everyone know that this is a huge passion and priority for me. I value your patience. And itís all going to come together soon. When it happens Iíll post an announcement with all the details. But it should interrupt peopleís posting at all.

    Happy Easter. On Sunday Iím going to the baseball over here. Yokohama vs Hiroshima Carp. And the next Friday itís Tokyo Giants v Yokohama Baystars at Tokyo Dome. Watched the opening game last night on streaming here. Gee they know how to entertain. Iím just mentioning it because it so inspiring and makes me think of possibilities including fan development which is something we can really contribute to.
