|This is a headsup that at some point in the not too distant future we're planning to upgrade MySQL to v4.1 then v5.x and PHP to v5.
Since I suspect not all of you spend your time worrying about what version of database we're running, in English it means we're upgrading the database and programming language that these forums run on to the newer version.
Now in theory this means that you won't really notice anything at all except some allocated downtime as it upgrades. They have both been around a fair while so are fully tested and we don't think anything will explode....much.
Exactly when this will happen I'm not totally sure as I don't seem to get any free time currently to think about it, but in theory either this week or early next week. I'll post a notice before doing it, but at least this way you'll know if we suddenly vanish or start throwing out errors, that's what caused it and we will be back.
