Hey Folks!

I've been keeping an eye on the backup server, and I think it's finally in a solid place.

I used the backup server to suss out some discrepancies between MySQL 5.6 and MySQL 8.0.   Nerd speak : most of them revolved around windowed functions.. I had database fields named using 8.0 function names that freaked out the server.    But I made some changes and things seem to be running smoothly now...

So my goal is to check things out tomorrow morning and verify that the backup server and the master server are still getting along well. If they are, I will likely bring the game down for several hours to backup the current database and convert our primary MySQL 5.6 Server to MySQL 8.0. If things don't look hunky dory tomorrow, I'm going to punt for a while until I get another non-busy game day off.

Also, you MAY see some different looks on your mobile devices over the next week or two.   I have already made some changes to the BTB and the message board that should be more mobile responsive (no complaints, so it must have gone ok..).   The main site will take a lot more love, however, but you may see things "trying" to make themselves more mobile compliant in the short term.

If you do and don't like the new look on mobile (which will be admittedly squished and uglyish until I give it the attention it needs), you can choose to go full-screen on your phone to get the same look you used to.

Hang in there peeps!
