I have good things to report.
The board is taking shape, even the cosmetics of the site are, for the most part, in place. Banners, for example, have been restored. (Pub users will be happy to know our unique banner is back in place thanks to sstrams). The site is no longer green and looks just as it did before the crash.
Features that we added over the years, most of them anyway, are restored and in working order. Example: Image uploading and displaying in posts and replies.
The only ‘real’ problem still existing is the DNS one. (I’m sick of mentioning this).
When the site is back online there could be, as I’ve said, some glitches, unexpected results – your help in reporting any problems will be much appreciated.
We continue to check, recheck, but it appears the site is ready to go and now, hopefully, only a very short wait and we’re back in business. – JamesJM
