  1. IF the Invision folks are successful in moving our forum, the new URL will be http://powersurge.invisionzone.com/ It will look exactly like our current forum and everything will be the same. The cost will be only $30 a month. On this current site, we are paying $99 a month plus $35 every 6 months to use the board software. I'll keep you posted here.
  2. I can link to the message boards on the current front page of Power Surge. Yesterday was a terrible day, dismantling the whole rest of the website, deleting, saving stuff to my own hard drive for use later on power-surge.co and putting together a new front page, communicating with Invision (the authors of this software), getting people into the FB group - in addition to some other stuff going on in my life. I didn't link to the boards yesterday because I figure people who knew where they were, already knew. At this moment, it's not a good idea to take on a lot of new members while t
  3. Power Surge isn't gone - we're still here
  4. I have requested that they go ahead with the move.
  5. The message board hosting people got back to me... Hello. Yes, that should be possible. From the quick look I had of the forum, it appears to be reasonably busy, and 40 or so people are visiting it right now. Our hosting packages are based on the average number of visitors, sampled every 15 minutes and averaged over two days, so a temporary spike in visitors won't matter; the average does. If what I saw was a good average, our Plus 40 package would work. And we do offer a free transfer to our hosting, yes, so we'd be able to move it here as long as we are provided with
  6. Trish, where did you make the FB request? I'm not seeing it. I need your email address (or you to friend me on FB)
  7. It occurs to me that since I removed what they wanted removed, maybe the boards can stay. It still might be better on their server since they would do automatic upgrades. I'll see what the Invisionboard folks come back with. AACCCKKKK I had so many other things planned to do today than dismantling a website.
  8. They did and it is. Someone is threatening a lawsuit and the family can't deal with that in addition to everything else I've contacted to folks for help with possibly moving the boards. If that can happen, the board URL would look something like http://powersurge.invisionzone.com/
  9. I got a phone call from Alice (Dearest's) daughter today. The family would like me to shut down Power Surge. The main site is virtually gone as of this afternoon. I asked her for a week to get everyone on the message boards prepared for this. We still have a secret board on Facebook. If anyone wants to join that, please let me know your email and I'll let you in. There is also an open group on FB at https://www.facebook.com/groups/355396567848457/ When I thought that these boards might be gone last September, I set up a private board on my own forum at http://cushings.invis
  10. Thank you so much, Wildflowers. The first month is paid for
  11. The malware is completely gone, the Google Malware message is gone (if you still see it, clear our your browser cache), the boards are updated and have a fresh new skin. All in less than a week - I think Dearest would be proud Welcome back, Surgettes!
  12. Thanks so much, Trish! I really appreciate your most kind words
  13. JoJo, I posted information about donating on the donations board. It said I have decided to use WePay - https://www.wepay.com/donations/please-help-keep-power-surge-running for donations because they will show the total amount of donations at all times and the donor names, although you choose to be anonymous. Each month, we will need $99 for the website; every 6 months, $35 for the boards or $1,258 for the year. I have put up the goal amount as $1,258 so that we can keep this same campaign for a year (until September 2014), rather than making a new page each month. The fees that W
  14. I have a question in to the author of this board about how to change the font for writing new posts already. Ya beat me to it, XIII
  15. If you have questions or comments about the new skin - or want to change back to the old one, click here: http://www.power-surge.com/php/forums/index.php?showtopic=37981 Thanks!
  16. The boards are updated to the latest version, the new skin has been applied, the malware is gone, the site submitted to Google for review to get rid of that red malware sign. Just about done! If you hate this skin and want to go back to the old one, I'll tell you how to do that.
  17. I have never tried donating to anyone so I'm not sure how it all works from that end. My Cushing's site has gotten donations, though so I know it works, at least some of the time. Tinks, do you know what happened? Thanks for trying!

  19. MsReadyToExhale, your post is here: http://power-surge.co/2013/10/07/from-msreadytoexhale/ Thanks so much!
  20. Since Google somehow knows the malware wasn't gone, just hidden, I've brought the forums back for those who don't get the warning.
  21. When the boards are cleaned up, they will be updated to the newest version. During the update, you may get a message that the boards are closed temporarily. I'll try to make that as quick as possible. There will also be a new "skin", a bit darker than this one.
  22. Dianne, there is a Power Surge section at http://cushings.invisionzone.com/index.php?/forum/317-power-surge-members/ You have to be logged in to see it, though. I hope to have this board cleaned up within a week or so.
  23. Thanks so much, Ms. Could I please post the quoted part of your post here: http://power-surge.co/category/in-memory/ I'm trying to construct a nice memorial section for her. Thanks!
