FWIW, phpBB is now up to v3.0.9.

unfortunately I'm a bit busy with a job that pays money.

Let's not forget how much we pay to use this facility.

ofcourse, with all due respects.

now'a'days PayPal allowes us(or some of us) to send funds around from the confort of our homes with just some clicking involved. when you have time, lets upgrade/update even if it costs us a bit.

I'll chip in a few bucks if it helps Peter. Also, would love to know if there is a back up of the site, in case the server craters, where it could be recovered. I'd chip in for that too! Would be disappointing to loose all this collective knowledge.

My guess is that time, not money, is the issue for Peter.

Also, the session errors that were likely occurring may not be cured at all by a new software version, as they are likely the result of nefarious activity by bots, crawlers, and perhaps even more sinister sources...

...but it would be interesting to know what the DR plan is for the site...it would be a travesty indeed to lose the collective knowledge here...

sorry, that was a bit harsh. Caught me at a bad moment.

As ideola says it's time not money that's the problem. I have some time off over the new year period so I'll look at an upgrade then.

And you can all sleep easy - the site is backed up every night and the backup is copied off-site. In the case of a total loss we would only lose a maximum of one days posts.

The site could be recreated on a new server in a day or two.

My favorite thing about this site is the fact that it has changed very little over the years. Its familiar and has always worked fine for me. Other forums cant seem to stop changing. Mobile apps that dont work, pop up ads that you accidently hit when you scroll, slow page loading... a real advancement. I dont care to have updates every second. I drive a 30 year old car for a reason. Keep it up 924.org! Best forum on the net in my opinion.

Yes, I agree! This board is my homepage. Is there somewhere where we can be kicking a few dollars to help cover some of the hosting costs?

thanks for the offers of help with the hosting costs. really appreciated.

The reality is that the hosting costs me nothing. It's one of many sites that a close friend has on his account with webfaction.com and it uses so few resources that he refuses to accept any money from me. I give him an occasional bottle of homemade vodka which he happily accepts.

Peter.
