I will be in the process of upgrading the site and migrating the old database this week...hence you may discover that the site is slow/not working at moments. Please bear with me and I hope to have everything working and the upgrades in place by the weekend.

Thanks,
Robert

Good Evening!!!

This evening I performed the first of 3 upgrades to OrthodoxChristianity.net.

Due to a rewriting of the Instant Message system to support internal encryption, your IM boxes are cleaned out.  However, if you send me an email at bob@orthodoxchristianity.net with the subject of IM Restore, I will gladly email your old ones back to you.

Some features in addition are not working up to par, and some are still being worked on. I should have this fixed by Friday.

My apologies for the "work in progress." Please bear with me, and as always report any bugs or errors in this thread so I can fix them. 

Thanks for all your support!
Robert

I saw that.  Incredible proof of time travel via the 'Net.  ;D

I've restored the avatars folder.  You will have to go back in and reselect the avatar you had prior.

Foriegn language threads are stuffed. The forum titles are displaying properly in unicode but the threads themselves (Spanish and Russian) are not

Καλή δουλιά <--- oddly enough this bit of Greek displays OK ???

Nevermind to what I just said.... It is curious as I can read the Russian under my avatar but not in other threads...

Let's see if my favorite russian work came out in this thread....

My apologies.  When I converted the database over, the UTF-8 encoding got messed up.  Hence, you are able to post/view unicode posts from teh present onward, but the ones from the past are not properly formatted.  I added it to my 'todo' list but it may be a few days before I can get around to writing a converter to convert them back to their corresponding charset whether it be cyrillic or greek.

Thanks for your patience.

I believe that our dear administrator...robert... is displaying "odd" behavior, he is apologizing and thankful for our understanding & patience, there is something amiss ...
