Features that are down

We're in the process of upgrading PHP to the latest version, and have run into some problems with the memcached module that our forum uses.

I've restored as much functionality as possible without this module. The following features are currently down:
-forum translation system
-memory caching: faster pageloads
-feedback statistics tab in member profiles
-latest threads tab in member profiles
-new posts counter (to view new posts, use the link from the forum dropdown or the "the latest" dropdown)
-social groups statistics on the forum homepage
-user cp moderator log
-user cp latest threads box
-today's top poster



Sorry for the inconvenience, and I hope to have this resolved in about an hour or two. Primary forum functionality should not be affected at this time.

Right now it looks like only the translation system is still down. I will keep you posted as to when it is fixed.

All features should now be restored, but, as usual, we welcome bug reports if you notice anything out of the ordinary!

Ggggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr !!!!

I only had ONE photo to post for World Pentax Day. ONE. I went through uploading the image and typing up my description just so you lot can say "Oh, I'm sorry. We can't be bothered uploading your photo right now but if you try again later we might let you do it". NOT happy. This is 2010, not 1987 !!!!!

Thank you for keeping us all up to-date, sounds as if you have had yours hands full and sometimes things don't always go to plan. Keep up the good work on all our behalf.

At first that, and then the deamon wasn't running properly

There's one more small issue- check my vB.com post

Hello Everybody:

I haven't posted yet because I'm in the market for a new Pentax camera. Will be getting one soon...count on it. I've had Pentaxes all my life and there is none, my humble opinion, better.

I'm thoroughly enjoying reading all the comments and looking at the fantastic array of pictures.
