    Hi guys,

    You'll be glad to find out that our stats on the forum home page now correctly show the actual number of members, threads and posts. (And in line with that, we've already reached 6000+ members, that by itslef is already cause for celebration)

    I'm also working on the internal server errors we are gettng, as well as the PM system. While I'm at work, please feel free to report if you see some other weird things so I can see also take them into account. Thanks.

    Hopefully, we can have a fully-functional, error-free board in a month or less. It shouldn't take so long, normally, but since ikonboard seemed to have abandoned the whole thing already, I have no choice but to study their Perl scripts and classes.

    Regards,
    -JV

    I'm a little surprised. How come you never said before that you were a forum admin? And how come it's not mentioned in your member info that you are part of the admin group or something?

    Just got to see the real stats. Wow. 6,102 members. That's a lot. And almost 100,000 posts.

    Anyway, good luck, I guess.

    What difference does it make?

    Would you have thought twice about throwing insults at him if you thought he was part of the admin?

    Everyone should be given the same respect regardless of whether they are a first time poster or the founder of the board.

    Probably because jv wasn't an admin before, he's just helping Bryan sort out the issues with the board software.

    Jv, hope you get things working out. I'd offer to help too, since I used to know Perl pretty well, but I've forgotten most of it. Heh. Now if it was php/mysql based, that'd be a different story.

    Good now I know who to pester when mine crashes or goes haywire.

    As far as JV, good I'm glad to see that Bryan got some help.

    Just took a break from looking at the forum's ikonboard code to say...

    I hate Perl. [​IMG]

    Yeah, linux+apache+mysql+php is my forte too. If this were php, this would have been over already. But noooooo.... they had to use Perl just to piss me off (okay, that's a little exaggeration)

    Anyhoo, I'll see if I got it right already. If something screws up in the next few minutes (note the time this message gets posted) and you are forced to log back in or something, then yeah, that would be my bad. [​IMG]

    All right, here goes nothing.

    All that downtime for nothing. ikonboard is really pissing me off.

    I promise no more downtime from now on as long as I can help it. And if the board does have to be shutdown, I'll leave a note as soon as Bryan approves it so that no one will be confused as to where the HST Forum went.

    Anyway, I'll look into the scripts again. Well, I did say it would take some time, I was just hoping the minor fix would do the trick, alas, not meant to be.

    All the best JV. I know what debugging someone else's code is like. Why not just translate it all to php while you're at it? [​IMG]

    A suggestion, if we obtain the approval of Mr. Moore, should this board go down for some reason, we should meet up on Dan's forum so we at least can keep in touch.

    I'm so glad you're sorting out the board!

    Real Deal - you though this was a pip-sqweek board you got it wrong...it has been going since April 2002 and man...is it worth it!

    And...no...JV is not admin...just another nerd...but yeah he gets to fix things as you can see. I'd say by now if I were you i'd give HST a bash...just My opinion of course! [​IMG]

    @old and grey

    Because here are many Cool and friendly people ! one of the best boards i know so far !

    @jvroig
    how about an offtopic forum part ?
    for jokes and other offtopic releated discussions ? [​IMG]

    I have no problem with that, also JV did email me and let me know, so in the off hand chance it happens again, shot me an email JV and I'll post it on the hypertrophy-research board for all (members or not) to see.
