Our host has notified me that they will be upgrading the version of MySQL the forum operates on this coming Thursday, January 8th for improved performance and stability.

This is a mandatory update that will be performed by the host, and should last around twenty minutes to complete. During this time, the database server will be unavailable for the site, so BSBH will be offline. I'm not sure the exact time the process will begin, but consider this a notice that if you do experience an inability to access the forum on Thursday, it is likely due to this process. Simply try again later (twenty minutes).

As always, if there are any questions, just ask.
