it would be the perfect time to upgrade the forum to SMF 2.0.4 - get it over with. It's free and shouldn't take all that long. I can't imagine why they wouldn't do it.
Whatever it is - it never is "just" or "only" - there is always something that bites back. Which means you need to have a fallback plan.
I can see that they didnt "throw in an upgrade" during this cleanup/stabilasation exercise. That is a sign of mature handling of running a service.
A 503 error is what I got.I did copy it to the clipboard to paste here, but I got distracted and overwrote the clipboard while doing something else.
I live in Texas.
@Msquare, you're a late night programmer, it must be just after 04h00 for you there!
...Now, at 0400 ...
I got a really weird error message a couple of hours ago. I should have recorded it.
