No, it can't have as we're still running SMF 2.0 Beta 4 and we're upgrading to (most likley) SMF 2.0 RC-2 which 'adresses some security issues' from the earlier beta test

What day is this planned to occur on? (If it's not at the weekend then i wont complain too much :P)

The day estimate is just a worst-case scenario (in case something does wrong and backups become involved etc).

I don't think it'll take more then a few hours either, but you know computers . Always makes things harder then they should be...

I was about to say that my update was easily installed but I've just though that mine was updating from SMF 2.0 and that i hadn't made any posts :P
Yes, i do know computers and i know how anoying wikimedia is as they didn't even include all of the required files :P

5)Do my college assignments
What are these things of which you speak?
Well.....

*Piano playing to the tune of "A Few of My Favorite Things"*

When TO's down and You've got nuthin,
You click around and Oh, God it's broken
And then you look around and then you see
These are a few of things I can do.

Wet little brushes and unassembled models
PIeces of bitz and Sharp lil' clippers
Glue 'em and paint 'em in solitude,
These are a few of things I can do.

Chicks in good dresses with looks to kill
Figures of body that make me orgasm
Azure blue eyes that melt into me
These are a few of things I can do.

When TO's down
When it sav'y'xa'uk up
When I'm feeling down
I simply remember the things I can do
And then I don't feel so down

When TO's down and You've got nuthin,
You click around and Oh, God it's broken
And then you look around and then you see
These are a few of things I can do.

Cozy beds and soft fluffy pillows,
Warm fluffy blankets and comfortable beds,
Just go and lie down and then you'll see
These are the few things I can do.

Friends that are tall and friends that are short
Friends that are Asian and friend's who are Jewish
Just go for a drink with'em and you'll see
These are a few of the things I can do.

Surfing online in Facebook and Youtube,
Chatting away in Skype and MSN,
Just spending the time on the INternet,
These are the few things I can do.

When TO's down
When it sav'y'xa'uk up
When I'm feeling down
I simply remember the things I can do
And then I don't feel so down......

PS: I intentionally left out college assignments, as no one likes to do them. :P

Nice.

Anyway I won't be on muhc for the next week or so, lots of checking out colleges. Plus, I'm off to the Army tomorrow

I'll leave that last bit open to speculation.

CV, that was pretty epic, but, uh, I am disappointed in the lack of rhyme.

Maybe you should try a limerick next time. ;D

I'm going to spend the time doing nothing (ie playing on Runescape)
I reject your runescape and sunstitute EVE for my diabolical plans!
EVE is awesome!

this makes me scared of my computer illiteracy.... is there some kind of 'how to update' easy cheat sheet, or will we just deal with the downtime and things carry on as usual?

I never update any software on this ghetto box computer... do i need to download patches or anything? ech... like i said, kind of computer illiterate.
