Re: Yahoo To PHPBB3 (Y2B3) Released

I just noticed that the last 4 characters from each of my posts are cut off. I checked the .sql files that Y2B3 creates and they're truncated there, too. I would check the .mdb file, but I have no idea how to open it. Do you have any idea what might have caused this, or what I can do to fix it? EDI...

Re: Yahoo To PHPBB3 (Y2B3) Released

...I plan STARTING THE UPDATE PROCESS FOR Y2B3 to be WIN7 compatiablity by 1 Mar 2012, 1300 hours EST (USA). I've decided to actually start the conversion this evening or tomorrow. Although I can't give a solid date on when the new version will be available (the documentation will take the longest)...

Re: Yahoo To PHPBB3 (Y2B3) Released

I will look at it this evening or tomorrow. emdub: 1. I just looked at the conversion I did in 2010, and the random posts that I checked were in tact. Several of the posts were VERY, VERY LONG. 2. I opened the database (not the *.MDB) used by the program, and there is no limit on the body. 3. I als...

Re: Yahoo To PHPBB3 (Y2B3) Released

By the way... IN THEORY, even if I do update this program to Windows 7, with the language I've written it in, it should still run on Windows XP, at least until 8 Apr 2013 ( user's local time ). Effective 26 Jan 2012, all new programs, or updated programs (see my site for details) will on 7 April 20...

Re: Yahoo To PHPBB3 (Y2B3) Released

Thanks so much for responding! I tried using Notepad, but trying to do a find/replace all on such large files caused the computer to choke. I used TextMate which worked much better. I don't suppose there's any way to automatically merge topics that have the same titles, is there? Personally, when u...

Re: Yahoo To PHPBB3 (Y2B3) Released

After thinking about permanent deprecation of this program (eliminating it), and speaking to my wife, who I've known since 1962 (first grade), I'VE DECIDED NOT TO PERMANENTLY DEPRECATE (ELIMINATE) THE PROGRAM . This means, it is in line to be upgraded to Windows 7 compatibility. However, something m...

Re: Yahoo To PHPBB3 (Y2B3) Released

I'm still considering whether to migrate the program to Windows 7, but here is the solution to your issue. 1. Always backup your database (board) before making changes. 2. Always Backup the SQL statements made by the program, before making the change below. This is saved in: c:\mydata\gls-data\y2b3\...

Re: Yahoo To PHPBB3 (Y2B3) Released

Please see the notice on my site (i-really-want-to-know.com), specifically about "Deprecated Items". Basically, the current Y2B3 will still be downloadable, and I will provide support here, for now . I'm considering upgrading it from Windows XP (which it was tested and written on), but the final dec...

Re: Yahoo To PHPBB3 (Y2B3) Released

I'm going to be working on my PC today, so during this time I will consider your comments. HOWEVER, I make no promises beyond that. I've considered this for about a week now, and for this program, I will, providing the site owners don't object, answer questions for the program here in this thread. ...

Re: Yahoo To PHPBB3 (Y2B3) Released

Just FYI, one of the reasons, in addition to the above, why the UK was added on the list, was that there was 11,282 attempted spamming attempts reported, from either UK IP addresses or UK e-mails in around 11 months, from multiple sources. Say that 4 sites reported 10 spamming attempts from ip 1.2.3...

Re: Yahoo To PHPBB3 (Y2B3) Released

I was getting the 403 yesterday, but it is working fine today and I have the same IP address and email address, so thank you for fixing it. I'm glad your getting in, but I deserve no thanks, I did nothing. I checked with my hosting company, and they said nothing, that they are aware of, was wrong o...

Re: Yahoo To PHPBB3 (Y2B3) Released

1. The initial link given on 24 Jan 2010, is and still is valid, it works. 2. As to our comment of "Aha, this must be it since the link provided by you does not contain a filename, http://www.i-really-want-to-know.com/_downloads_/y2b3/y2b3_program/", the following is a fact...it is a browsable folde...
