Thanks to all,
Wow, so much great input on the subject.
I would gladly provide you with a MySQL dump, but I'm new to sql, and new to my host, and haven't been able to find where I can get it done yet. Anyone know how to accomplish this at Ventures Online?
I saw the announcement on 'Project Aurora', but it's supposed to have the same license as the current Perl/MySQL offering. In their announcement the tout how the new board will provide profits for Jarvis, which makes me believe one way or another you're gonna pay for it.. even though they say it's going to be free. The announcement seems to say one thing, while they say that the board will be free.
I was registered at your forums when they were iB, and no.. I wasn't there for the skins. I went there mostly to post and read jokes when it was slow here at work. I saw when you changed over to phpBB2, and quickly found that I was no longer registered
. I see it's become mostly gaming forums now.. and for an old guy like me (43), not really my type of subject matter. I do promise to go back and have a second look though
. It was at your site that inspired me to take a look at this forum system.
I plan on installing a test forum using phpBB the next time I get some time off, and look forward to becoming a more active member of this community.
Thanks again to everyone for your help
