Updates completed

Some updates to the forum have been completed.  There has been an update to the forum software (SMF), and also to the web server software, database software, and the PHP version.  If you encounter anything that's not working properly, please post about it here.

Before long, we should also be using SSL, https, to encrypt the communication between your browser and the web server.  This will make your logins more secure, make private communications impervious to snooping between the two endpoints, and stop the annoying browser messages that imply the forum isn't safe.

Without SSL, it's still just as safe as it's ever been, but the browser warnings alarm some people, and we don't want that.  There may be some slight interruption when I flip it over, but hopefully it won't be major.
Be nice.  Don't hit.  Don't run with scissors.  Try not to make a mess, and if you do, clean it up.

What do you do when 'potential' is your favorite word
and then the bus leaves you at the next move sideways?
