I was promoted to board moderator by @LePaul. The video clip is just my way of displaying that power.

I was always told I am good company, in moderation. :P

OK! Ok, ok ... a little slow on that one.

Abuse of POWER already! Ok I guess I get it. HA, Ha ha...

Yes I commented to @LePaul that I would also be more than happy to help out if needed.
Was hoping that my experience, programming and data base management expertise would be beneficial to the forum.

Your bribe hasn't arrived :)

I forgot to add you. I'm so rusty with phpBB I'm surprised I was able to upgrade him

Appreciate the offers. I need to upgrade the phpBB software again, I see I am a version behind again.

I would stick to a quarterly upgrade schedule at best (unless there is a critical security fix release). The changes in between don't warrant constant updates usually.

You are correct.
This is one reason I stayed on version 1.1.5 for so long, was working correctly though finally changed to 1.1.7.

Wanted to update some temporary settings in configuration. so It was a good time.

Now deciding if there are enough benefits in changing to 1.1.9

Did my first steps with TIG-welding this weekend! It didn't work out yet (just melted and burned steel), but I'm still alive and the equipment is ok, too. So far, so good :)
Man i did the same thing but all of my material has been burned almost by doing this kind of welding.

Not too long ago I did my first wire feed welding, I succeeded in welding two pieces of metal together.

However I popped sparks everywhere and welted divots of my New Auto Darkening Welding Helmet and lens.

On A different note:
A few days ago I had a windows 10 auto Update do a reboot scan disk which corrupted the 4TB hard drive directory.
Luckily I had a backup of the data ("or so I thought") though I have most of the Data, so spent many hours re-storing the Data.
I decided at this time would Upgrade to a 6TB drive. So I copied about 10TB of data from One drive to another to spare up a 2TB drive.
I replaced the 2 TB drive with a 3TB drive to Fill my 12 TB 4 Drive backup, and leave the 2TB drive for a windows backup drive.

Now that all was running smoothly and all good data was working correctly started my system with the Backup drive.
Now windows 10 did it to me again, after a dozen boots ran another scan disk of the backup data disk an corrupted the directory again.

That was alright I have nothing but time now, so started to restore the data from the new drive back to the old drive which too many more hours.
Now that all this data has been transferred what seems like to the moon and back.

I find the windows 10 has a corrupted registry and half of my programs will not run so with the last little life in the drive I save what is still working.
I start to rebuild windows 10 only to find that several of my programs will not auto register because the company has gone defunct.
As these programs are so very necessary to what I do I could not live without them.
An after many tries and failures decided to try a old Ghost Backup of window 7 Pro 3-Mar 2016, I have most of the programs reloaded now.
It appears to be running correctly now, this means that I need to make a ghost image of the working drive. for my computers archive.

Then I can update this Windows 7 Pro 64bit to windows 10 Pro 64bit.

I find that I lost quite a lot of data because I did not preform proper backups of the ghost images sooner but it could have been a lot worst.

Thinking I have about 30TB of data from family archives, so loosing half a terabyte of data was not a real bad day, still was not a good one either.
Most of the data lost is someplace an will be retrieved sooner of later probably later haha.

P.s I still have the corrupted drives and may still be able to retrieve more of the data when I find lots more time.

P.S.S Feel like a prisoner with this SAR_Cov_2 (" Covid-19 ") lock-down.

In my opinion stick with Windows 7. I know it's out of date but I have it on my main PC.
I find Windows 10 a pain, I have had to jump through hoops etc so it won't auto-update.
I want the PC to work for me, not me work for the PC.
I also have a NAS for all my data, it's over 10 years old and on the second set of discs (2 discs in Raid so I can replace them one at a time).
Please don't hate me for using Windows 7, it's just an operating system.

And this is one example of why I use Linux in most everything I do. I have a dozen systems running Linux in the house, and I can remotely log into them from anywhere in the world (after connecting through VPN to my Linux firewall). My server has 8-4TB drives in a raid 10 configuration (speed over storage), and when one drive failed, I swapped it and the system regenerated automatically without even a reboot. It is not very full at the moment, but I have Plex server running on it and plan to rip my DVD collection to it so I can put all of my DVD's in a storage box and still play them on any system that runs Plex. I also have a few TB of photos (haven't even started scanning my 35mm collection). The server raid is partitioned with LVM (Logical Volume Management), so I can shift and grow specific partitions as needed on the fly.

I agree with you GrueMaster about Linux.
I have to have windows on my main PC and Laptop for CAD, but have Mint on my older laptop that I take on holiday etc.
It was supposed to run Win 10 but it ran so slow it was almost unusable, so I put on Linux on it and the difference is amazing.
Having used Linux on and off for many years I was surprised how easy it was to install and setup Mint.
