I've bought the latest version of this Forum software and will try upgrading - possibly tonight (Sun 10/26/08).

It fixes some bugs and has some new Features you guys might like - or, at least it will give you some new things to play with.

Hopefully it will go off without a hitch ....

It probably won't be tonight (Sunday). I have to wait for a Backup to be done first.

FWIW, the Firefox browser often gets hung on ECN. ECN does work fine on IE, though.

I've been seeing the hang problem on Firefox, as well.

I have had it a couple times myself but not that often. When I restore the session it is OK

I haven't been able to do a Backup yet, so the Upgrade attempt is on hold for the moment.

Tesla,

The upgrade hasn't happened yet, But the Chat Area is a separate entity anyway. A few days ago it was brought to my attention that security settings had somehow changed for the chatroom, (people could get in without registering) and I reset them.

I can think of two reasons for your problem.

If you never registered for the chat it will no longer let you in. Note: a working email address must be put in so you can receive login instructions.

If you are registered and either name or password is not entered exactly as you registered with it will likely be rejected. (Capital/lowercase letters and spaces may throw it off). There appears to be something strange about names with a space that it changes to a _ and doesn't recognize properly, but that shouldn't affect you.

If you have registered there try this >> Click the 'update password' link there and then 'forgot password', Enter your username and click 'retreive password' and it will send you the login info to the email address you registered there with (subject will be "Password Recovery System").

Let me know if you have any more problems, or if it still dosen't work.

Bill
