    Hey everybody,

    The site upgrades that I've long hinted at are coming very soon. I wanted to roll out the changes before camp started, but it looks like I'll be shooting for Tuesday (7/28). There will be several upgrades, but the most obvious will be the different forum platform. While there will be a lot of new and improved functionality, and the overall appearance will be a little different...the basic forum functionality will be largely the same, so it shouldn't be too hard to find your way around. Having said that, I'll post a break down of the new features to help make the transition easier.

    I'm not exactly sure how long the site will be down on Tuesday, but it will probably be for a few hours during the later half of the day (I have a dentist appointment in the morning). Aside from the forum and home page changes, there will also be upgrades to the server. I'll work as fast as I can, and I'll fire out an email to everyone/update on social media when everything's back up.

    When the lights come back on, you can log in just as you normally do.

    Will the new and improved version have live video and audio chat features for gameday and a text speak feature that will type the words I say and then a feature that will get me a powerade during the game so I don't have to get up? Because if not then what is even the use?

    I was at first too, but then I found out he's the same dentist that Lambert had for years. So, I'm sure I'm in good hands.

    Thanks for the heads up TTF. I am usually on here on my breaks at work so I am now warned about Tuesday. Looking forward to the new site.

    Oddly, I had originally typed a preemptive 'Steelers related' sentence, but decided to delete it.

    Well I guess I will be that "oooone guy"... This place is horrible and everybody on here is stupid. The moderators are nothing but poor white trash and the administrator aint nothin' but a jerk and don't even get me started on the pencil necked geeks that are the patrons around here! There. Now there is balance in the universe again.
