Well, I finally got down for a little bit to my ataris only to find the Mac the bbs's were running on, screen was all corrupted. There were a few win updates that needed to be done so I tried to run those and poof. The windows went into the ether.
Tried to repair everything last night to no avail. So luckily I had synology drive running and maybe at most 6 hours of data was lost.
I needed to move the bbs's back to the old laptop for now. When I get some more time (and patience) I will drag out one of the old towers I have and work on getting the bbs's running on that. But in the meantime we are back to the old laptop.
Also pondering just putting win 7 back on that. That would probably resolve some of the laggy issues.
But they are back for now.
Just wanted all to know the boards didn't disappear.
