Re: Windows Vista vs Mac OS X

OS X will install on a disk as small as 1.5gb apparently, but it's not recommended due to the lack of swap space. You could technically do it, but you would need a lot of RAM to back it up.

Re: Apple TV

I was speaking metaphorically, only comparing it to drivers. Basically iTunes transmits the packets outward to the Apple TV, so I suppose comparing it to a Server would have been more accurate. Apple indeed has chosen to keep a closed source for the system, but from experience I can't really blame t...

Re: Apple TV

Another tip is the reason Apple TV only works with iTunes is a 50/50 situation. Windows Media Player doesn't have that kind of support built in, and never will, plus it would probably run so badly Apple wouldn't dare allowing it to run in WMP anyway. WMP won't take it, Apple doesn't offer it. It's l...

Re: Old Phpbb website or this one?

I like the new site, it's just genius in design and efficiency. It loads fast, it looks clean, simple yet powerful... the team have really done a great job with this one.

I really did like the look and feel of the old one, but it was getting on in years and was due for a replacement. This is it.

Re: Apple TV

The Apple TV doesn't allow you to watch TV on your computer, it's a set top box that mirrors all of your media content to your TV. It's a direct accompanying product to the iTunes Store. Download a movie, sit down on the couch and watch it via Apple TV, connected to the PC/Mac via 802.11n wireless n...

Re: Daylight Savings Time dates changed

Mac OS X users, if you haven't already, download and install the Apple Time Zone Update. Get 10.4.9 while you're there. ;) Puma/Jaguar/Panther users, try switching on the option to retrieve the time from the Apple Time Server, found in System Preferences > Date & Time. That should keep you up to sync.

Re: Windows vs. Linux

Indeed. If you spend the time to learn a system, then it can be quite effective. Windows does have a lot of power to change and modify.

OS X and Linux have a lot similar to Windows customisations, it just involves some time in the Terminal to do so.

Re: Windows vs. Linux

When it comes down to GUI complexity, or simplicity should I say, Mac OS X and Linux (Gnome) are about on par. I have them in a dual boot on a G4/400 so I can get a fairly good opinion what it's like. Windows however, and I don't intend this as offensive, some may prefer it, but Windows is fairly co...

Re: Mac OS X Leopard

I know my current forum name must really throw my opinion to biased, but it really is easy to use. It works quite well in terms of stability and performance and is suited to just about every need. That's they way it was made. The only term i've heard in favour of Windows is that it has more "Bells &...

Hmm. This complicates matters. I'd like to see what the other users here say, as i've never converted an IPB-2 forum before.

phpBB hosts with mailing lists are hard to find for one reason. phpBB isn't a mailing list package.

:P

I would recommend you find a web host with PHP and MySQL (just Google for Free Web Hosts), install phpBB and then apply one of the mods you have already listed.

It's a great forum software package. Generally has no disadvantages, and it's free. I say go for it. :)

Which version of IPB are you using? If it is version 1.x, you can download a converter from this link in the phpBB SourceForge entry.

I somehow doubt it. The problem you describe seems to be occuring higher in the system than the phpBB software. The only real way to allow this is to edit the timeout and limits like Acyd Burn recommended, in the php.ini file.
