101  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Odd/Fun Ways You've Learned Programming on: September 18, 2013, 09:32:40 AM
Hm...

(No, really, I started with Visual Basic. Don't ask why.)

Photoshop as an image viewer? Wow.

When it comes to lightweight, probably still nothing beats nomacs.
BTW, are you a spambot? @ your URL.

The interesting part of the encryption thingy is that it affects Linux users too.  tongue

GnuPG should be safe, unlike "online" encryption, right?
104  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: ANDROID: What app do you use to read digital books? on: September 09, 2013, 10:33:49 PM
Probably it has none then. TBH, I never needed one.

pivory is not a "forum", similar to Vanilla. Some might use it as such, but I find it too... weird.

mwForum uses Perl (see my initial posting), UNB looks nice indeed. It has no PM system, right?
106  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: ANDROID: What app do you use to read digital books? on: September 06, 2013, 06:50:00 PM
Adobe Reader. Actually, that's OK on *droid.

Can't you just configure it to a less creepy extent?
108  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Entirely unsure about a simple discussion forum on: September 05, 2013, 07:01:44 PM
Well, good suggestion in theory, but, yes, it is a "board for a blog"... I could probably "redirect" that, but then all advantages of it are gone, right?
109  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Entirely unsure about a simple discussion forum on: September 05, 2013, 06:58:43 PM
I know WordPress rather well, but since bbPress requires a bloated blog system as its base, I'm not entirely sure about that, given that my website runs on WordPress...

I know discussions of this kind are quite rare here, but: OK, I'm stuck.

I am currently planning to build a German liquorice community (interestingly such a community does not seem to exist yet). While I surely have an idea about structuring the community, I'm totally lost which software to choose.

Required are PHP and MySQL or PostgreSQL, also I'm not willing to pay as I don't intend to make money with it (else, XenForo would surely be my choice). Narrowing down the possible solutions, only five boards have made it into the final round. These two of them are already sorted out due to known issues:

  • phpBB:
    Pro: I have been using phpBB boards since their last 1.x versions, so I pretty much know how to handle them.
    Con: phpBB is a main target for spambots, so it needs a lot of maintenance work. I probably can't invest so much time anymore (given that I also have other boards running).
  • MyBB:
    Pro: I also played with that a bit.
    Con: Not sure how to explain that... MyBB bores me a bit. I need something different I can dive into.
Three other contestants are equally interesting. Now I need someone with experiences to tell me which one would be recommended for a probably mid-sized community, discussing about one major topic in a couple of subforums.

  • FUDForum:
    I like its feature-richness. Its basic look and feel are a bit oldish, but I guess this can be configured. No idea about possible "Con"s.
  • Phorum:
    Played with this one many years ago. Quite nice (as it's small and configurable) IMO, but I never took the time to run an example configuration yet.
  • SMF (or one of its forks):
    It has a wide community, but development seems to be quite slow these days...? I know DC runs that, although I have no clue why.
Any clues? I'm lost.

I tried Synapse when I had a Mint box (for testing purposes). While Zeitgeist leaves be a bit confused, it's probably one of the best launchers out there. Right after the terminal, that is.
112  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: FLV downloader needed on: September 04, 2013, 07:00:04 AM
Firefox + DownThemAll! + FlashGot = ideal.
113  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Screenshot thread! on: September 01, 2013, 09:22:06 AM
That's what I have followed, step by step.  ohmy

Maybe I should try again tomorrow...

Bye then!
115  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: A new section for Linux, cross-platform code, embedded, mac, android, ios, etc. on: August 31, 2013, 11:50:29 PM
You dislike being pointed at wrong assumptions?
116  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Screenshot thread! on: August 31, 2013, 11:32:09 PM
Oh, it actually is.

Weird. I just followed the step-by-step instructions. I issued the command to boot up CDE and nothing happened. Not even an error. Hm.
117  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: A new section for Linux, cross-platform code, embedded, mac, android, ios, etc. on: August 31, 2013, 10:02:10 PM
My personal agreement needs refinement, which is something the staff here should care about. According to your profile, you are not a staff member but a random spammer with an ugly penguin in the badges. Now what? Good night.
118  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: A new section for Linux, cross-platform code, embedded, mac, android, ios, etc. on: August 31, 2013, 09:45:25 PM
Like yours? While I guess I gave you a couple of reasons why this section in its current state (with the current "rules") is pointless, I see no reason from your side why I am wrong, except "ZOMG EVERYONE UNDERSTANDS DAT!!1". I'm not quite convinced, sorry.
119  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: A new section for Linux, cross-platform code, embedded, mac, android, ios, etc. on: August 31, 2013, 09:37:47 PM
Feel free to put me on your filter list if you don't need me. Where exactly do I put tirades against Linux? I'd assume reading is not one of your strengths?

"We don't need a Linux section" means that I don't like Linux? Get real.

"General conventions" are fine, but they need refinements to be applicable. Non-applicable conventions are bullshit.
120  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: A new section for Linux, cross-platform code, embedded, mac, android, ios, etc. on: August 31, 2013, 09:27:59 PM
The problem is that the posting rules here are not defined clearly enough, and before I receive a warning for off-topic posting in this sacred Linux-friendly area (seriously, did we actually need this?!), I'd like to get to know the actual restrictions. According to the description of this section, everything is allowed here. Where to post "embedded Windows" topics? There is no area for that.

(We could all get rid of this two-page discussion if mouser had announced this area before so we as the board members could have made the rules...)
121  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: A new section for Linux, cross-platform code, embedded, mac, android, ios, etc. on: August 31, 2013, 08:31:55 PM
Why should cross-platform software (like Firefox) behave so different on Haiku that it should get a separate subforum?
122  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: A new section for Linux, cross-platform code, embedded, mac, android, ios, etc. on: August 31, 2013, 02:59:49 PM
Does WINE count then?
123  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: A new section for Linux, cross-platform code, embedded, mac, android, ios, etc. on: August 31, 2013, 02:29:01 PM
So FileZilla (available for Windows) is allowed here, embedded Windows is not although this is called "embedded"?
124  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: A new section for Linux, cross-platform code, embedded, mac, android, ios, etc. on: August 31, 2013, 01:42:42 PM
So "cross-platform" means "every platform except Windows" too?
125  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: A new section for Linux, cross-platform code, embedded, mac, android, ios, etc. on: August 31, 2013, 01:16:08 PM
Also, "embedded" includes Windows.
