    Well I have been saying for over a year,, (maybe 2) and it is going to happen come hell or high water..

    Next Friday night ALS will be going down for a couple of hours and will be migrated over to the new site..

    For a long time I have been trying to get everything perfect.. and if I keep on that path we’ll never get moved.. So, there will be a whole lot of stuff missing for a start.. But as we all start using it and get feedback from you the members we’ll be able to make changes and add new features …

    Some of the things that WILL NOT be migrated

    – Ask Lyn (hopefully will be done at a later stage)

    – Photo albums (The new photo album system is completely different, if you wish to save your pics now please do so.. Once the site is crossed over, I will be able to provide a zip file of you album. if you still need the pictures)

    – Web links (may look at migrating these over in the near future)

    – Calendar

    – Recipes (will be looking at migrating this)

    What is done

    – Articles

    – Forum (remember old links to photo albums and forum posts will be broken, this may be addressed over time, but might end up being a causality)

    – User data

    What this means,,, All your passwords and email details have all stayed the same and you will not have to change anything.

    I’m hoping that the new site will be fair easier to use and even the most computer illiterate will not have any issues 🙂

    Anyway, now I have gone public with this,,, it has to happen, so I best get cracking 🙂

    Can we have a ‘home’ or ‘top’ button at the bottom of the pages as well, please?

    Suggest we wait a week or so before we start requesting changes/enhancements.

    When you say “next Friday”, Dan, do you mean this friday coming, the 22nd or the next friday which is the 29th?

    The forum will remain intact, appart from looking a little different..

    If pics have been link from the current ALS photogalleries they will break.. If they have been link to from external sources such as photobucket, they will be fine.

    One issue we still have is attachments.. We are hoping to cover this off by friday..

    The Barley Banquet? Is that as harvested or after it’s malted and turned into beer? 😀
