    • I know cash may be tight right now so in an act of goodwill I agree to cut my Irish bagman fees by 25% for the next 12 months. The 3% upcharge for any La. recruits still applies however. They still greedy on the bayou.

      Congrats guys!!!!

      • Thank you and Congrats for stepping up, to the whole group. I always pop on here to read even if I don't post as much anymore. IE is one of the best places I've ever found for honest analysis and genuine conversation on the gamut of topics. I have gone from angry twenty-something to middle aged reading this board, and I've learned that most of you old bastards actually know what you're talking about. You're good men, every one of you. Long may this refuge continue.

        • Tried to pickup IrishEnvy shares on the "takeover" news. Robinhood won't let me buy?

          Huge short positions being taken right now. Screw the hedge funds (rumored to be USC Sucks Capital and Michigan Sucks LLC).

          It's a buy and hold Lads and Lassies!

          Cheers and Go Irish!!

              • Wow. Thank you guys for doing that and I guess congratulations to every one because THE best Notre Dame forum will only get better with that group in place!
                Maybe it's far too soon to tell.

                                  Looks like they moved the site (not upgraded), but IDK.

                                  • The site has been moved to a new server but we are going to wait to update the vbulletin software. Once the server is stable we will upgrade the forum. There were some compatibility issues between the server and the outdated version of vbulletin, but those have hopefully been taken care of.

                                      Did you move it to the rack in Beau's closet, under his Bitcoin and Porn servers?

                                          I've done that dance before. There's a reason you stay fairly current. I'm sure Sherm Sticky can attest to that as well.

                                            Brother, if I had been mining bitcoin this site would've been upgraded years ago.


                                            Like Clash said, hopefully once the server stabilizes a bit we can upgrade to the newest version of vBulletin. I've been chomping at the bit for that day.

                                                        Hmmm, no notifications in my browser. Looks like the functionality is there at least, might just need tweaked. In there Profile Settings there's a section under Notifications to receive a message in your Message Center when someone @ you, I've got that turned on.

                                                          It was only chance I got in this way via a bookmark from another machine which led me to play around with older bookmarks.

                                                          Anyway, happy that there is progress, but... One of the primary complaints from folks in the past was that there was no warning of migrations/changes. Sorry if I missed a notification/post, but seems like y'all migrated servers without giving anyone a heads up. Glad it's the off season.

                                                            There was some discussion here that an upgrade was probably coming. There's still some little things to work out like the look and banners, but this was a welcome upgrade. There was a very real chance that the old server hosting the board could have gone down at any point or become unavailable, and then it might have been impossible to update or migrate the server due to lost data or incompatible versions. That's part of the reason it took a few days for Clashmore to work out the kinks with the vBulletin team, they had to do multiple updates just to make the site usable on the new server. It had been many years since anyone bothered to touch the software. In any case, big thanks to the new owners for working on this and putting us in a good place for the future! Updated features and quality of life upgrades can help bring in some new posters.

                                                              I knew an upgrade (and migration) was inevitable, but just expected communication would be more transparent. Unless I missed the alert, no warning....

He spent a ton of dollars on cheap components building PCs and even spent a decent amount on solar to power it all. He's no better off now lol... Another guy that just played the trade on it all, did pretty good.

                                                                    Now we're in a place where the site is usable, but there may be intermittent interruptions (like yesterday) as we figure everything out and get this place set up in a way that feels more familiar.

                                                                    We have experienced some redirect issues with trying to get our front page set up like it was on the old version, which seems to have resulted in the home address 'irishenvy.com' not being responsive. 'irishevny.com/forums' and 'irishenvy.com/forums/frontpage' are working, but we're trying to smooth everything out.

When the files were transferred to the new server, we encountered a series of out of date/unsupported issues that forced us into an upgrade which then forced us into the full upgrade. We attempted to keep everyone abreast via Facebook and Twitter and posted that above (I think). We were not able to send out notifications of the prolonged outage from here.
