Stuff / What the hell is he up to now?
« on: September 12, 2011, 06:33:36 PM »
Well, I've replaced the Message Board yet again.

Why? I found phpbb to be a real bear to manage and the user registration system fairly weak. I literally got 5 to 10 spam registrations per day no matter what settings I used. I'm going to see how this board goes.

I'll list the known issues from the conversion here.

for example, the [ size= ### ] tag broke because phpbb uses size=150 and simple machines (this board) uses size=14pt. This is mainly in signatures and easy to fix... just edit the post/sig and respec the size.

Stuff / HeroClix based Star Trek Announced
« on: June 09, 2010, 05:34:41 AM »
I posted this on the main site:


This will be HeroClix based. Details are slim right now.

What do you think? Will it be Good or Meh! ?

Stuff / Next project... Rebuilding the galleries
« on: April 27, 2010, 06:07:54 AM »
Several hacks ago, we lost the user image galleries: ... /index.php

Well, not lost but disconnected. Since I moved away from postnuke/joomla to wordpress I sorta ignored them. I've been testing a wp image gallery so I'm going to start moving the old galleries to the new one. It's going to be a tedious process and I'll probably do a cleanup at the same time but it will let me reclaim some server space.

This should show up on the main site shortly.

Loving this game. The PS3 version, I don't think the PC version would work on my laptop.

Stuff / Fictional Reality Archives
« on: March 29, 2010, 08:47:25 PM »
Hi all,

As you may or may not know, Fictional Reality closed down and will no longer be publishing a Netzine.

I got permission from the publisher to host an archive of the FR library. I've started to add the pdf's to our download section:

I'll take me a little while to do them all (38 issues)

Stuff / What's he doing now?
« on: October 15, 2009, 05:52:20 AM »
I upgraded the board to the current code level. I dumped the theme. I felt it was too dark and narrow. I'm using the generic theme at the moment until I figure out what I want to do.

Warhammer 40K / Limited Edition Space Hulk
« on: August 20, 2009, 05:50:01 AM »
I'm really tempted by this. ... rod210009a


Now if they'd only rerelease Warhammer Quest  :x

Some cool looking minis in this set. And it seems to be a "timed" game so a little different than the norm.

Stuff / Toronto Gamesday today

Don't expect me online today  :mrgreen:

Web Trolls / Missing Images
« on: May 30, 2009, 07:44:15 AM »
I'm cleaning up the link redirection/broken files and the images that were in the pics directory were completely lost in the last hack.

These are mainly the mechwarrior ones like the ones that should be here: ... repair-bay

I'm wondering if you still have these so I can recreate the directory?

If not, can we remake them?

Warhammer 40K / Warhammer 40,000 Expansion: Planetstrike
« on: May 23, 2009, 06:35:35 AM »
Planetstrike announcement on the new DC home page: ... anetstrike

Just trying to get people used to going there.  :mrgreen:

Stuff / New Site - Things Left To-Do
« on: May 19, 2009, 05:50:50 AM »
As you may have noticed, things are changing around here.

I've divided the site in two, Message Board and Everything else. Except for fine tuning, the message board is done. Content and Users are over. We still have to get the old users using the site and any help there would be appreciated (email people, tell your game groups, etc.)

Everything Else:
  • Articles moved over to the new WordPress engine - 100%
  • Reattach Articles to the original authors (everything ended up with my name. - 50%
  • Downloads - I'm happy with the new plugin so I'm setting it all up now and transferring the content. - 10%
  • Chat - Done and installed but some users are having "issues" so I'm going to show this as - 50%
  • Design - Right now I'm using a generic template. I like the features of it so I'll customize the one I'm using. It'll be the last thing I work on. - 0%

Independent of this site; I have to launch the new Fantascene site. If you want awesome terrain you should check out I still need to add some content and teach Geoff how to use it.  :lol:
