    I mentioned that change was coming to Packer Forum and so it is time to upgrade the forum software here. I am expecting about 15-30 minutes of downtime, but there could be another hour or so of the site acting up while I configure the new update.

    Thanks.

    For right now, I took the site back down to the BARE minimum and will be re-implementing things one at a time.

    The biggest reason for this is responsive design. Just check the site out on your mobile phone. (without Tapatalk)

    Yes, I am going to be hooking that up again real soon.

    *edit - Okay, I updated the Tapatalk plugin and there seems to be an issue with Tapatalk at the moment. As soon as they get a fix I will get that applied to this forum.

    Its all good, I have a few more things to do to get back on track and really close to the way it looked before the update. Just takes some time starting a style from scratch. And if there are particular things you don't like, please let me know. (seriously, send me a personal conversation and I will see what I can do)

    Did a small update today to fix random bugs in the forum software and implement some speed improvements. (upgrade to XenForo 1.2.1) Let me know if you guys see any issues.

    Thanks.
