    ATB:
    The Arena:
    The FIBA World Championships are about to tip off! Can the USA continue their new reign as kings of the world? Or will another country rise up? Discuss it in the Arena, and stop by and try your hand at winning colors in the FIBA World Championship Single Pick Game. NYCitygurl reminds you that we also have FIBA-themed icons available for use.

    The Classic Trilogy:
    The CT forum is abuzz with the newly discovered cut scene from Return of the Jedi.

    With the onslaught of Celebration V news and video clips, the forum is bubbling with discussion. Savage Oppress? Nightsisters? Oh, my! Less than a month til Season 3 starts.

    Celebration V:
    This week we would like to extend a special thanks to all of our CV party organizers! For those who want to say thanks personally, there's an appreciation thread here in the CV forum.

    You know, you're right. We're only trying to move a database with a few hundred million individual pieces of data from a custom designed program developed in one programming language to another commercially customisable program written in a completely different language and with different schemas.

    That should only take a day or two to set up and execute at the most.

    The Fan Fic Awards are also still going on. We just announced winners in the Before the Saga ceremony (hosted by yours truly) and the Saga ceremony. This upcoming weekend will have the Beyond the Saga and Non-Star Wars ceremonies.

    Believe it or not, for a move this size a lot has to happen and a lot of prep work has to take place. I'm sure you can understand that.

    Don't take this the wrong way but us the JCC have a right to be a smart alec after being told before we were moving and we didn't. Its like a politician saying they will stop corruption. Same story, won't believe it till we see it. So take your lumps. Its not that bad. This is the JC sarcasm comes included with bureaucracy.

    I used to work as a database administrator and did my share of conversions of mainframe databases. Believe me - I'd rather have the lead-in work take longer to ensure that things go OK for the live move. This isn't really something that you rush.

    You know, you're right. You guys were the ones that logged over three hundred hours in development and coding time the last time that this occurred and so have a complete right to hassle us about a timeframe we have admitted from the start was unknown and impacted by the biggest SW fan event with the majority of people with technical expertise attending. We have been so secretive and refusing to give any information both this time and last time so therefore we should justly expect people to show no common decency or sense about it.

    And BTW, while certain things may be expected in the JCC, this is Comms. What we expect here is that people can show a level of maturity and respect so that issues can be dealt with and sorted correctly.

    I don't see what difference it makes how long it takes to begin with. Aside from wanting it done right, which will require time and patience, how does it inconvenience anyone that its taking a while for the move to occur?? The only reason I can fathom to make an issue of it, is to drum up drama and attention.

    I'm absolutely outraged that the move is taking so long. For one thing, I have had my bags packed for THREE MONTHS. This means that each time I want to take a shower I have to unpack my shower. This is hugely inconvenient - and not to mention expensive as I have to negotiate water rates afresh each time I connect it up to the mains water supply. It's costing me an absolute fortune. So please, MS, please either get on and sort this move out or issue me with some sort of voucher enabling me to access free mains water for as long as I am left in the lurch by your incompetence.

    I always pack my bags at the last minute, so I don't have that problem, my dear Everton.

    Also, please think of Everton's neighbours, friends, co-workers, and the average man, woman and child he passes on the street. Everton doesn't like to make a fuss so he wouldn't mention it but you see he put in the time and effort to pack away his clothes in anticipation of a quick move and only left out the 2010/2011 Everton away kit to wear.

    Seems like a 'Chang' shirt to me, not an 'Everton' one.
