Welcome and Welcome Back!!!!
« on: January 26, 2010, 08:05:39 PM »
Welcome and Welcome back once again.  Late last year I was forced to close the doors here because of security flaws in the software I chose to run the site.  Previous to that we suffered an attach that resulted in a complete loss of data.  Well, thanks to the great users on the site we were able to recover from that and I hope that we are able to move forward from this latest setback also.  This time we have the advantage of not losing any data, so we're that much ahead of the game.  I've migrated all previous posts over to a new and hopefully more secure platform.  I also have all the previous gallery photos and am slowly moving them over.  So if you had a gallery before, give me a little time before recreating it...

I will be discontinuing the blog section as it was little used.  Besides that everything should hopefully work similar to before. Haven't really examined everything about the new forum software yet so there might be a little bit of a learning curve for all parties.  

I will again strive to be a better Admin going forward, and I look forward to seeing you back posting about our great line of boats.

Thanks,
Tim

Yep, it already appears I need to enable some more security measures to combat the spammers.  I've enabled a manual approval process in the meantime...

And we were down again for a bit.  I had the old site accessible to look at while I was copying gallery images over and it was exploited again and shut down by my host.  We're back up again and I hope this new board will not be as exploitable.

I will be making some changes throughout the day in an effort to effectively keep the spammers away, so there will likely be some maintenance downtime a different times...

Technology is a double-edged sword. Thanks for your efforts! I've been busy with life and missed most of the outages. I'll try to visit and post up when I can.

Great to see the site back up again.  I don't post much, but I will try to more.  Can't wait to get the boat out of storage and back in the yard so I can at least see it!  ;D

Tim, thanks for your efforts.  Being in the IT field myself, I have to deal with this all the time.  It gets old.

Thanks again and let me know if I can be of assistance,
