Blogging Live from Londonvasion 2008

Filed under: Londonvasion 2008, phpBB — Dave Rathbun @ 8:57 pm Comments Off 

Here is a wide shot of the conference on Sunday when it was open to the general public as well as team members. Hmm, I recognize that person in the lower corner, but what was he doing?

Oh, right, here’s what was going on…

I was composing a blog post right at that moment. If you run a wordpress blog of your own, you might be able to recognize the standard wordpress posting screen. I sat way towards the the back of the room, as I didn’t want to disturb anyone around me with my typing. It turned out that other folks ended up sitting in the back as well, but there were enough laptops running that one more didn’t seem to matter. :lol: The hotel wireless, which had been so bad the day before, performed quite well. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that they placed a wireless access point right in the room with us. ;-)

Featured Smackdown: phpBB3 versus phpBB-Dave

Filed under: phpBB, phpBB3 — Dave Rathbun @ 1:15 am CommentsComments (7) 

I sometimes take a lot of grief for still using phpBB2. To be honest, most of my boards are quite far from a “vanilla” board, so it can hardly be said that I use phpBB2. I’ve been saying for a while that I didn’t see a need to upgrade since I had all of the features that I thought that I needed.

Then the other day something occurred to me… what if I didn’t? What if I really did need to upgrade to phpBB3 because the number (or usefullness) of features that I am missing is more than the number of features that I have? How closely had I recreated phpBB3 on my phpBB2 core using my own MODs? I thought it was an interesting concept, so I decided I should see how I could compare the two.
