Google are implementing big changes come Jan 2017

some good, some ridiculous

they are trying to drive all sites to run in https mode which is fine except they are penalising sites that have links to http sites by putting up insecure site warnings on the site with the links instead of putting up a warning if someone clicks on the insecure link.

A version of Chrome (version 56) being released in Jan 2017 will no doubt start showing AULRO.com as being an insecure site because there are hundred and hundreds of links that users have included in posts here over the years..

should be fun...

The AULRO app

the AULRO app in the google play store is no longer supported.

updates to tapatalk (which it is based on) have broken it

I have asked the ad agency to have it removed from the play store

those people using it will need to switch to the tapatalk app

it is much more complicated unfortunately and you will have to search for aulro.com in the list of sites and add it to your favourites within the app.

sorry

but out of my control.

Been a few years but the system finally had another major crash..

i have the system back up but some things arent working as they should

like the thanks button

please let me know via a pm to incisor if you have issues

some posts / data was lost beween the time the system backs up during the night and the evening when it died.

(dying ups took the server out so i have moved a few weeks earlier than i planned)

Where to from here..

Aulro.com
is now hosted on two enterprise class VPS based in Sydney.

the biggest issue facing me is that the forum software doesn't much like the newer operating systems so i have had to make many modifications to get it to the point where it is usable, with some add-ons and inbuilt features not working.

the plan is to get this install stable and reliable while i go about upgrading to a newer version of the forum software in the background.

Going from this version to the next has always been problematic at best and that is why i never did it prior to events now forcing my hand.

once i workout how to reliably upgrade, the system will shut down for a day, while i do the upgrade on the production server.

after the sparc server let go the first time about 3 weeks ago i started sorting out a system wide backup with a plan to upgrade the server early in march. Sadly events saw the server off-line 2 weeks before i was ready.

i anticipate it may now take up to 2 months to get to the point where i can do a reliable upgrade so please be patient with the current set-up until i can get it upgraded.

thanks to everyone for the support.
