What excitement i missed on jb.org! We moved! How great :) .... What a gift, a skill, Mr. AdamK to do that. I couldn't even begin to know how to do somehing like that. Like Jonathan would say (at least on some seaQuest episodes).... way cool.

So glad the website is here to stay!

Besla, in case you didn't know, Adam K. IS Lucas, or a close match.
Jonathan would be completely bewildered by all of this, but Lucas would say it was all in a day's work.

Yes I believe Jonathan would be very confused with what I have done -- Lucas, on the other hand, would be wanting to see all the toys I have that now make this whole forum and website tick. He'd be drooling, however, as the server is actually what's called a virtual server.

A virtual server, is software, which emulates a server computer. It runs on a much more powerful server that can do many things at the same time. That much more powerful server, is usually running high speed and quality components, and is designed to do such a task.

I was hoping to knock over the gallery for us all today but alas I worked over 12 hours today on jobs that pay the bills. However tomorrow is looking much more peaceful, so I'll get some time after I have had some sleep tonight :)

You've done plenty already. Don't push yourself. The gallery will be up when it will be up.

Exactly. Whenever you move a few things get misplaced - but they're still around someplace in the box with the _______. Everything is still intact from the other server, and it'll all be available eventually. In the meantime we'll deal. No hurry.

Lucas, cyber-geek-supremis might say "What's taking so long?", but the rest of the 'cyber-normals' marvel at the smoothness of the transition, and the cyber-dorks (like me) wouldn't know where to begin anyway so we're happy that there's anything at all.

The galleries were reassembled once. If worse comes to worse (and it won't) they can always be reassembled again from the many (many) files backed up on many (many) hard drives all over the world - starting with mine. And Jonathan's true legacy (the worldwide Brandissian Army) isn't in any danger of disappearing.

Btw is that Brandisian army or Brandissian army?

My recruitment poster only has one s so I hope I won't have to redo it...

The original came from a post in 2004 - and the term "Brandis-ian" - with the hyphen - was coined then. There was never any real consensus as to whether there was another 's' or not, so both were used and the old site (which at the time had MANY members), adopted the double 's'. Either seems right to me. Probably, to keep the hard 's' at the end (rather than it sounding like Brandeezeean), the double 's' retains the ISS sound.

And that's how to massively overthink a very simple thing. :-\

I wonder what Jon would have said about the Koala in your avatar?

Okay so the Gallery. I spent some time on this yesterday but didn't get a great deal of joy out of it -- however I do have a plan.

Now, one thing is certain, all of the images have been captured in the backup I took just prior to moving the site over. Even so, failing that, there's a few members close to the site who have very extensive collections. So that side of things is perfectly safe.

What I may end up doing is just resetting the gallery, giving it an update and rebuilding the database from scratch.

I'll keep you all updated :)

Probably he would acknowledge my inherent silliness - but he also described himself as silly, so he'd likely get a laugh out of it.

And besides, I couldn't find a wombat picture with the right gravitas.
