I spent most of this morning figuring out how to sign up for a Tapatalk forum owner ID and linking it to the "test" forum just so I could submit a support ticket requesting a backup. It was NOT straight forward. :s_mad Once logged in, I also found an email address to support. I've now submitted a support ticket AND sent an email to support both requesting a backup (copy) of this forum.

If I can get them to give me a backup, my plan is to move this forum to a different hosting service, as is, and avoid Tapatalk altogether.

Keep your fingers crossed.

HH, do what you think is the best. I trust you Buddy! I guess my 7 year-old Gateway laptop with windows 7 gets along with their format.

With the impending move of our forum to either Tapatalk or another hosting service, the custom styles and smilies I installed early on will be lost. As a result, I am going to reset both the styles and smilies back to their original defaults now. I am doing this because if I do get a backup of our current forum from Tapatalk and move to another hosting service, the move will go much faster and smoother if only the defaults are present.

Good point! Maybe his router has enough wireless range. Long extension cord. He could always get bottled water and a bucket. Heat & a/c is optional, too. Hell, he's good to go!

We have a 5500 watt generator with 40 gallon of gas, 2 cell phones for hot spots, propane heater with 2 40# tanks and several company fans. And more portable towers lights then I'll ever need. Leak in the roof with a bucket under it catch rain water. and a camp stove for cooking. Now if I only had something to sleep on beside storage containers. :roll:
