Did you notice the the board can sometime be quite slow to access these days (main page, topic or just to send a post)?

Indeed. I thought it was some issues with my browser (I use opera, which is sometimes not message board friendly).

Yeah, sorry, we need a new server. The current one is overloaded.

Hey guys, Lorphos has finally managed to prepare everything for the big move. The forum will be offline tomorrow for a couple of hours when he'll move everything to a new, bigger, better, faster server. We don't have the exact time. Try to manage life without the Dolph forum some time tomorrow. 8)

The DNS update for www.mosquito.net will take until tomorrow, until then this site has a temporary address.

Thanks Lorphos! :wink:

P.S. there seem to be some issue with the Youtube plug-in (the videos don't show up)

I fixed the youtube bbcode - at the same time I changed it so now uses HTML5 instead of Flash 8)

I also added strikethrough.

Strangely now you have to put all the Youtube URLs under https not just http (the old ones became invisible)

Some browser probably don't render insecure content on a secure webpage.

I changed the bbcode so it always uses https even if someone enters http

Seems to work.

I just installed a new SSL certificate. Sorry about that expiration thing... :oops:
In general, if you see an SSL certificate that has recently expired there is nothing to worry about. :mrgreen:
