Meh.  OO is getting ready to update to phpbb3 at some point.  Maybe when Ron updates GT. slywink  But seriously Gedd has some goodies in store.  Rip was a bit disappointed that this didn't happen next weekend though as I think he has a nice new servermagig for SloO to live on.  It would have been nice to come back with a vengeance.   icon_biggrin


Edit to say, my meh was not directed at GT.  I like SMF a lot.

SMF is easy to update.  Anyone who has had to update phpbb 2.x in any form can attest that it is a pain in the ass.  You'll be happy with phpbb3.0 smile

I'm getting occasional database connection errors when trying to use GT. Time to kick out the riff raff and get this place back to the usual level of mayhem.

Unfortunately as far as I can tell with phpBB3,they're still using a similar search system. It's by far one of biggest weaknesses of phpBB as a whole, and I was a little disappointed to see it return.

So how's SMF treating you guys?

Incredibly well.  It has an incredible feature set, not the least of which is a robust search engine.  SMF 2.0 should go live sometime in the next 3 months and promise a whole bevy of new goodies as well as better performance.  (I just can't roll out the beta in a production environment in good conscience to test those theories)

Nice. Might have to play with it some on the home box.

Disappointed to see they're (SMF) still using tables for layout though. I think phpBB3 has finally moved into the "modern" world of divs/css for layout.

Bah. Apparently the hold-up in the redesign is the flipside of the server where Ron is hosting pr0n links for those clip advertising sites.

That, and it's going to take 4 months just getting Calvin's posts converted, let alone the processing time for PeteRock Posts of Maximum-Character-Usage.

I'm surprised we don't have any "...con'd in next reply..." at the bottom of some of them. Good afternoon reading for sure. biggrin

It's interesting how civil this thread is while the comparable one at QT3 (which just started today) has already degenerated into a battle between QT3ers who for some reason hate OO and everyone else.

Makes me think this board might have more going for it than just the lack of Dirt.  icon_smile
