Older messages, as in the ones prior to the switch last year, should appear easier to read now. We are back to our full archive.

I had noticed that myself, but figured it was because no one was here, lol. Maybe with the database completely normalized now it'll function more smooth.

can't say the load times maintained their snappiness, but I did find some notes from August 2011 about fixing all the old posts, lol.

To accomplish the task...
- Copy site files from live site, to beta
- Backup database, change web.config to point to PHBeta
- Delete all topics prior to May 15th, 2011 that do not have a post after said date
- Delete all posts prior to May 15th, 2011
- Re-code C# app to read MySQL PHBackup database and manipulate data appropriately into SQL PackersHome database.
-- Do NOT insert topics/messages where the TopicID/MessageID is greater than the first TopicID/MessageID after transition
-- SET IDENTITY_INSERT tblName ON (use this with actual post ID's from MySQL DB, make sure no over lapping will occur!

Go through old notes and verify this is possible before proceeding.


The method I did was more complex, but easier and eliminated any possible data loss. I'm proud of how smooth that went, and surprised, lol.
