Hi folks. We're going to upgrade Dreamlyrics to the latest version of UBB on the morning of Monday 12th. The upgrade window will start at 09:00 BST/04:00 EDT/01:00 PDT and end at about 11:00 BST/06:00 EDT/03:00 PDT (interpolate other time zones as necessary). The upgrade is likely to be completed much sooner than the end of the window, but we will be testing after that and, if necessary, roll back to the existing version and/or reinstall the upgrade, so it might not be stable for a while, hence the long upgrade window.

As usual, we will post updates on our Twitter feed, so you can keep up with us there even if you don't have a Twitter account. (If you do have a Twitter account, it's a low-volume feed, mostly notifications about outages and stuff though there is the occasional bit of chatter as well.)

It's going to easier than an upgrade of any of the programs I support, so... there's that! grin But good luck, and make sure you make the correct sacrifices to the appropriate computer gods.

(Our NetSys guys say goats and sheep are passé, that chicken is all the rage now. I can't keep up anymore. No wonder none of my upgrades ever go smoothly.)

Well, as it turns out, it isn't...quite. I may have to delay this a week as there are issues with the conversion. Not so much with the forum software, but the change it imposes on the character encoding, which means we have to convert all of the text in the database. I didn't manage to get it to work last week, and I'm not sure I can get it to work before the upgrade.

I'll do a quick test tomorrow (Monday) morning, but I might scrub the upgrade and reschedule it for when I've worked out what I'm doing on the conversion.

OK. The upgrade has happened, and *seems* to be fine. Please let us know if you find any issues, especially with non-English characters (e.g. "ᚠᛇᚻ", "Sîne klâwen durh die wolken sint geslagen", "γλώσσα", etc.) in existing or new posts.

Your character encoding is definitely messed up, at least for previously posted posts.
