Okay, what happened to all the previous post?

Yea, I have a feeling this is going to be better. Now all I have to do is try and repost every thing that I had previously posted, but that should be no big deal.

Okay, what happened to all the previous post?

Well when I first put this forum online in 2001 I was working at a web hosting company and all we used serverwise was Windows servers...  I could only use either Access or MSSQL...   At that time I really didn\'t know what I was doing and wasn\'t too experienced with MSSQL...  The forum just grew tremendously and got out of control...  

After this changeover, we shouldn\'t experience any problems again...  I can maybe figure out how to archive some of the old stuff, not sure but I know its almost impossible to import all the old posts into this new format.

I try to use MYSQL in everything I do now as well...  I have since learned my lesson...

I can\'t believe this forum lasted as long as it did on an ACCESS database.
Unreal.


MySQL and PHPBB rocks. It\'s what I use for my forum and all my websites run MySQL databases.

I had to start over, too. My password never got e-mailed to me. I tried like 5 times. Damnit all to hell.

Really? My new password was e-mailed to me almost instantly. After I clicked on "forgot my password" it only took a couple of minutes and I was logged on once again.

Some strange happenings on the forum, indeed. But i suppose that is to be expected as the kinks get worked out. Imagine my surprise when i looked at NCScene and saw that i had supposedly started this thread! As Cuddles said, this thread wasn\'t started by me (Marc Anthony) but by Cuddles and i haven\'t even used that username in 2 years.

I was going to post asking how the thread got started under my name but i couldn\'t get my old username (Azrael) to work at all, even after doing the suggestions others here have made. So, what the heck....time for a new username anyway, right?

I\'m sure this change will be for the best and improve the technical issues we experienced with the old forum. Thanks Glen. Your work providing this forum and site is much appreciated.

Anyway.... hope everyone had a great Halloween
