Look at: https://xenforo.com/community/threa...igration-technical-support-consulting.102806/

We don’t want a HUGE amount of work bit shit I would like to get it done for me!

Tiger logo and text—they may suggest improvements to it.

A portal page (with metadata tho Google etc pay them not much heed) get the Moderation guidelines agreed to by new members.

Color scheme to wow the peasants

Decent set of smilies

Do the update I have left for the time being, add the advanced search feature (you would think that would be included in the install!)

Some nice doodads, decorative or functional. Avatar sizes could be increased a bit!

No idea of costs yet—haven’t approached these people.

A manual for dum dums?

Not yet, I did send them an email. Maybe too small a job.

Just so many things. Setbacks that in business I would deal with in 5 minutes without raising a sweat now tend to throw me a bit. But I have a nice set of trees, American/English/French for eating/cooking/juicing/cider. Will keep the two Beurre Bosc pears, one to eat and one for perry and not get a Conference pear next year. One apple tree I bought to replace one of the misdirected ones turned out to be not much, will ditch it (for one thing it ripens really early, like summer and summer is when I will be up to my arse in soft fruits like cherries, peaches, red and black currants, raspberries etc. Apples can start ripening late March on. There is an amazing crab apple that ripens only in the last week of August which is the last week of winter here! All I need are two more trees (90% sure it will be the Golden Pine Pippin, an apple with a pineapple flavor and Sweet Coppin, an apple that makes a sweet cider. Both these trees are excellent pollinators.

Then there is the question, unresolved possibly until the day I drive to Melbourne of whether I can go to Tassie at all. Then there is Mum, indomitable but getting frailer, losing her sense of balance, memory going.

Does not put me in a frame of mind for poring over computer documentation!

I have an email with a quote for the work we want done. Have not looked at it yet. Will do that tomorrow and post the details in Members. We can then check everything we want is included.

I likely will have more. But, the one which springs to mind now is....I would like to see whether a PM I have sent has been read by the intended recipient ......... as you can see at OzOPol.

Work will start fairly soon. I suggest no more smilies from Sunday night until the work is done. Can still select but not install.

It will cost just under $500 which I can manage easily.

Does that include some room for on-going ad hoc assistance?
