POSTPONED LAUNCH DATE

There's not going to be enough time to launch the new website before I ship off to Shot Show, sorry guys. I don't want to push out a buggy site and leave everyone to deal with it while I'm busy at the Shot Show and away from a computer. My 6am flight comes mighty early! The new plan will be to have it up next weekend. I was really hoping to have it ready before so I could have something to brag about, but I'm just going to have to settle for after the show.

The data migration, as always, is a huge pain in the rump. We've got a massive database with millions of lines. I'm hoping to have some folks help with beta testing too, all of that takes extra time. Stay tuned next weekend, if there's planned downtime I should be able to schedule it and let you guys know in advance.

In the meantime, we'll have Shot Show coverage as usual on the site - I'll be posting an update about where to follow that if you are interested.

Good idea. It looks like it's going to be worth the wait anyhow.

How do we get chosen to do beta testing?

If you want to beta test - shoot me a private message. It's not really exclusive, I just need people who can try things and report on any strange findings. It helps if you are at least smart enough to know what browser and version you are using :)

Those of you who volunteered to beta test, thanks! It won't happen until at least next weekend. I need to finish setting up permissions and bringing over all the forum data for testing before I can turn folks loose on the new site. I'll keep you all listed and get in touch next week.

AP 5.0 was cancelled. Turns out it was just a facebook page you could like.

Alright folks - I'm still working on a few knit-picky design issues, simple stuff that should be done this week. I need a huge chunk of time to devote to working on the data migration and it probably won't happen until this weekend. Can't say for certain if we'll launch or not, that depends on what we find with testing. If everything works good, we're all set. If we discover a bunch of ugly bugs, we'll be delayed.

I wish I could. I'd much rather work on AP. It's seriously hard to concentrate on a client's boring website right now.
