I've decided to upgrade the forum to the latest version of the software.
What I expect:
Things are going to look really ugly, maybe for a while until I have the time to sort out the design, it's been many years since I've had to deal with the stylesheets for the forum and it might take a while for things to look pleasant again.
Some sort of new features... I think it's mostly security features that will be updated, but hey ho, who knows. We're several versions behind at this point and it's time to upgrade, maybe there'll be some nice new features
I'm backing up the database, and the content files, then I'll run the update scripts. The forum might very well be off line until they are all working again, but since we're on the new server and we've had a couple of days off anyway, might as well do it now.
Wish me luck,
