Board will be down for maintenance tonight

I'll be taking the board down at 10:00 pm tonight to load a software update. Hopefully, I'll also be able to load the mod to convert image tags to URLs in replies.

Actually, I was stuck at the airport waiting for my wife's plan to land. When we got home, I was too tired to plan with the mod and I want to do that at the same time I upgrade.

I'm starting to sound like a TV weatherman -- one excuse after another.

The board software has been updated and I loaded the mod that will convert image tags to a url whenever a post containing a photo is quoted in a response.

Please let me know if you see any bugs. I'm particularly concerned about the mod as I received a post-installation message that it changed some permissions, but didn't tell me what was changed!

And...we're back!

You know, Charles, most medical studies indicate that a good night's sleep is one of the most important health factors. I'm just sayin'... ;-)

Will drift around and see if anything seems amiss.
