Hello members and visitors,

On Sunday, 9/3/00 at 10:00 PM we will temporarily close this Bulletin Board for a few hours to upgrade our BB software. Please note these times and dates are quoted from my location in San Diego, California, USA.

We are migrating to vBulletin. This software provides significant enhancements over our current UBB script. Written in PHP, it uses a MySQL database for significant speed improvements, is scaleable, and is fully customizable using templates. It also includes additional BB features which are ideally suited for a Community like ours.

During this transition, we have maintained multiple backups of all the BB data. All our posts and Member records are retained. We will activate our redirects to http://www.geekvillage.com/forums/index.php at the appropriate time. Your transition should be very easy. At the bottom of the BB home page you will see "Not cookied? Login with username and password:" I also suggest that you click the "profile" link at the top of the BB to verify your settings and edit where appropriate. Each Forum will have a "READ ME WELCOME" announcement post with additional data. If you don't remember your password or username use the following link and our current BB software will send it to you: http://geekvillage.com/ubb/Ultimate.cgi?action=lostpw

Finally, thank you all for your valuable participation and cooperation. August was another record month and 9/1/00 was the busiest day in the two year history of our BB. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

Respectfully yours,


Best Regards,

Hello members and visitors,

Unfortunately, I ran into some serious technical difficulties during the migration to vB.
This should not be viewed as a negative with respect to vB.

My sincere apologies for any expectations you may have had. No data was lost
during this attempted migration and we are back in business.

The project is on hold until I have more time to research the issues. Thanks for

Best Regards,
Your Administrator
