New Site - PLEASE READ

Hello All,
My name is Ashley and I am the one that moved the forum to its new hosting location. This was done for security reasons and try to keep the forum from going down every other day. I understand that the new forum looks very different from the old one but I promise almost everything you had before you still have it might just be in a different place.

Items that are gone due to a limitation of the new hosting/ forum update:
- Awards
- Flags

As I was going thought your posts I was able to fix a lot fo the issues you were listing. Below is kind of a running list of issues an what is fixed and what I am still working on.

Items that I have fixed from your comments:
- Smilie are now working.
- Color/Theme changes
- Signature are now showing up. (Here is how to edit them https://screencast.com/t/OJHzzhiV1)
- Ranking is now showing up.
- Private messaging is now working.

Some issues I am still working on are:
- Missing items from the Calendar
- Like button the posts is giving an error.

One other note I have seen a lot is theme/color related items. I know this is important to all of you but at the moment the most important thing was getting you back a functioning forum with as many features I can get you back from before.

Theme/color is something we can change but it the moment I do not have the time and resources to fix all of the issue and design the site. I did do some theme updates yesterday but it is very time consuming. Please just be patient with the forum as we get it back to as close as I can to what you had before.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know in the post below. Please give me as much detail as possible .

    Bump for current consideration/information.

    While mostly focused upon a natural cause, man-made is a valid consideration, especially by rogue nations like Iran and/or North Korea that might try to maximize the 2-3 weapons they may get in the near future.

      I have heard in an interview several years ago that 4-5 well placed nuclear detonations in the upper atmosphere high above North America would fry much of the electrical grid as it currently exists....the person stating that the entire continent could be thrown back 150 years in less than 10 seconds.

      Does this sound plausible?

        No. First, most electronics would survive. Second, if you knew there was an incoming nuke and this might happen, the easiest way to first respond is simply go out and throw the breaker for your home's power. That will reduce the surge to just what actually hits your panel, and if all of the breakers are open, even less will carry through your house's wiring. The majority will travel straight to ground.

        If you have some warning, unplugging devices and wrapping them in tin foil or placing them in an electro-static bag and grounding them will be sufficient to protect them like 95% of the time.

        Also, not all electronics are equally sensitive. not even all integrated circuits are. The most vulnerable are FET's and MOSFETS along with very dense, small IC circuits like computer chips. Something like an op amp chip probably won't be effected at all.
