Expected downtime

The MBN will go offline for a little while in the near future. The machine the MBN is running on will be physically moved to a new location. During this move the MBN will be unreachable.

To get your LBA fix you can always visit the IRC channel #lba on the EFNet IRC Network.

Update: The move is happening on Monday 24th of August, between 15:00 and 19:00 UTC

Update: And we're back

Post them when you have them.



Note: I guess this is not a change of hardware/software. Just a physical move.

If every forum jumps of a bridge, should this forum also jump off a bridge?

How can a forum jump off a bridge?

And btw, is there anything worthwhile in this new version at all?

vBulletin 3.8.0, according to this page, mainly has a lot of improvements for social groups, something that the MBN doesn't have and, considering the small userbase, doesn't really need either.

Yes, except we're going to be equipped with a parachute so we can watch and laugh as all the other idiots fall to their death

But then like the paratroopers on mosquibee island, we realise there's lava below us and get fried alive
