In furtherance of my goals of hardening MV to withstand the next 5 years of continuous use (which will take past the mind-boggling 20 year anniversary of MV) I am pushing another software update to the server. This one touches the vast majority of the files that make up this forum's source code, and eliminates some very crufty (and now deprecated) PHP coding patterns.
Sadly, after I push the change, you will either notice nothing different (if we're lucky) or Lots of Broken Stuff. I can't say for sure which, but that's the best we can hope for: nothing noticeable changes.
I'm going to take down the server for a few minutes, due to the large number of files that I have to push. Here we go.
