Our fourm database has been moved, copyed, rollbacked, resotred, croupted and hacked together over the past 5 years. As such it has got some bit rot over the years. Some of you may have noticed some errors when posting about the IN stament in the word list, this is due to some problems that happened when we moved from dreamhost to our own server.

To fix this i will be coverting our database to a diffrent table type and collation and during this time the site will be inaccesable (this may also effect the wiki and blog even tho there databases will not be touched). I plan on doing this update tonight but may have to move it to tomore night if issues come up.

The update has completed but i am still not shure if it had any side effects on the site. If you see anything messed up or wrong with it let me know!

It seems the upgrades had a side effect on the wiki database that was compenty unexcuiced (as we where not upgrading that database).

We had to roll it (the wiki) back to the last back up so there could be some data loss but it dose not look like we lost to much at all.

If any one notices any other errors poping up let me know ASAP.
