The support forum is back online!

Post by admin » Thu Sep 09, 2010 4:27 pm

This forum is my primary support vehicle for my tools. I can still be found at other forums around the web, but if you want to be sure to reach me for support this is the place.

I've upgraded to PHPBB 3 to hopefully keep the hackers/vandals at bay.

You must be registered to post.

Wow, the paint isn't even dry yet! Honestly, I didn't know you'd ended the old support forum :o but I'm glad to see your new beginning. Good luck with it!

Thanks for registering! It was a bit lonely in here by myself. :lol:

I didn't end the previous forum, the hackers did. Hopefully with this latest version of PHPBB, we'll be OK.

Geez, if it's not one thing then it's another isn't it. :o

I don't recall that the old board was ever very active, and maybe you're a bit tentative about "yet another place to keep track of", but now you need to get the word out... Else it's just you & me and our geek-ness! :geek:

Looks great, spammer-free too!

Now, can I interest you in the finest cosplay and weft wigs?

Kidding :)

Welcome. Spammers will be along soon I'm sure. If necessary I'll make some special captcha sauce.

Good grief I've been online since the late 70s (with a 300baud modem) but had to look up "captcha"!

One of the many reasons I love this hobby--always something new to learn. :)

Pfft.

There's alot more information to encode than you're little doggy photo too. Find a better compressor.

A full page of txt can probably be only 6Kb. Allowing people to have spastic avatar sizes is just silly for what this site is about. Hosting/Performance for a start.
