Upgrading here to 2.7.00
Depending on how well the various Mods install, and how well the new data converters in the 2x Converter work, I am hoping to have this forum upgraded to 2.7.00 sometime in the next week or so.

We're on 2.7
Just finished upgrading to 2.7

DOS attacks
Due to what appears to be intermittent DOS attacks, this forum will be in Maintenance Mode until we figure out what is being exploited.
