just watched the latest episode,
the challenge was something, that huge comeback was almost unbelievable,
it really made me wonder if they were trying to lose so they could vote out one of the people from the other old tribe?
they were so far ahead it seemed almost impossible that they could lose.

And the tribal was really good, but I am still confused at to what happened?
they needed one person to flip but it looked like everyone flipped??
the numbers don't add up, it should have been 4 votes from the one side and they at most 4 from the other side, I mean unless one of them voted for them self???

This is a very short science fiction movie I think 5 minutes,
and it's got some humor in it.

Announcements / Convert SMF 2.0.15 to phpBB 3.0.11
« on: March 10, 2018, 08:11:28 PM »
Because of all the problems with SMF forum software
- 5 minute delay on posting
- 5 minutes to log you into your own account and not the last person on
- shoutbox problems

I have started working on converting SMF to phpBB
starting with the converter here and if that does not work then I will try the converter mods here

not sure how long this will take, but we will see.

Installed the latest version of phpBB version 3.2.2 but it did not have the install directory to make the converter work,
so downloaded the older version with the install directory but I don't have a working FPT program to upload it,

uploaded the files and had to add
php_value mbstring.http_input pass
php_value mbstring.http_output pass
to the .httpaccess

it's very frustrating, I was able to create a test SMF site, and a test phpBB site and run the converter,
it looks like most things converted except for the posts, I can see the database where they are and I can see the database where I want them to go,
but the PHP command to do this just will not work. it always wants to add everything to then end and make new records, I need them added to the current records which seems to be a very difficult process for PHP.

went back to the converter and tried to see if I could figure out what was wrong with it but it just gives an error

[phpBB Debug] PHP Warning: in file [ROOT]/includes/functions_content.php on line 678: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is no longer supported, use preg_replace_callback instead

when I change the preg_replace line then it just gives another error

[phpBB Debug] PHP Warning: in file [ROOT]/includes/functions_content.php on line 678: preg_replace_callback(): Requires argument 2, 'Array', to be a valid callback

neither of those error message mean anything to me so I am at a loss there.


I figured out if I go into cpanel I can set back the version of PHP the site is using, I changed it to PHP version 5.3 and was able to get the converter to start working,
using PHP version 7.1 it would not work.
the first run got kicked out because there was a duplicate name,
then I ran into some server problems and it started timing out.
will try again later.

yes, when he said something like he can complain as much as he wants while they are voting out the other team one by one,
it made me think of all the other over confident people who got voted out.

Started working on converting the site to phpBB.
I am not real excited about doing this, and it's going to take tons of hours, but it could fix the problems we are having here.

Another good show,
they really smoked on the giant puzzle, I was surprised to see how fast they put it together.
After they came up with the new tribes, I thought there would be some strategy about losing on purpose to vote out the other team members.

It doesn't seem like anyone is taking into account that if your on Ghost Island then your guaranteed to stay in the game, that seems like an important detail that no one talks about.

When Chris was crying I thought it was funny, it seemed so out of character for him, but I guess he doesn't like being alone.

Nothing worse than when your virtual reality won't work.

That is my backup plan....

Today I contacted the hosting company and they are going to work with me on the type of memory caching that we use,
with any luck this should fix the 5 minute delay problems,

then we can get Webster to take care of everything else at his leisure.

This is to answer some of the questions in the shoutbox.

1. When you are on the home page most/some of the time you will be logged in at the last person on the forum for about the first 5 minutes.

2. The shoutbox is separate from the forum, logging into the forum does not log you into the shoutbox, you have to enter your name there separately.

3. There is some problem with the cache memory and there is a strange 5 minute delay on the site, so if you post something, or change something many times it will not show up for five minutes.

4. I am not sure if I should work on fixing all these problems, or switch to phpBB and see if it works better. I have no idea which would take less time and work better in the long run?   .... still trying to decide.

when my browser crashed and I had several tabs open so it could have been any of them, or a combination of them.
