    Downtime Wednesday Evening for vBulletin Upgrade!
    We'll be taking the site down Wednesday evening at 8pm EST to perform a major upgrade to the latest version of vBulletin! We should have the site up by 8am Thursday morning (and probably much earlier than that).

    The iNET staff has been working really hard for several months, getting everything in place for the upgrade, building some custom modules, and designing a more modern look. The Moderators have provided several rounds of feedback. I think you'll all be VERY happy with the end result!

    So take Wednesday evening off. Watch a movie. Build some pages for your site. Get some sleep. Keep yourself busy so you don't get ABW withdrawals. And come back bright and early Thursday morning to see our new look!

    P.S. Sorry, but Chat will be down too.

    10 more hours!

    Some of the changes will be coming during the day today, as we move some of the sub-forums around, update some sub-forum names and descriptions, etc.

    Guess the upgrade has been canceled. It was supposed to begin 19 minutes ago.
