A new site is born!

I’ve been thinking about another site for some time now.  I already have a successful Football fan site – Yellow and Black and a moderately successful site dealing with another of my favourite subjects – the TRIM User Network.

Initially, I was looking for a site with which I could use my vBulletin 4.x license.  I installed it and created The Aussie Forum; a site where just about anything goes!  I needed somewhere where people could swap jokes, talk about their problems and desires, discuss sex, talk politics, and generally talk about anything they want to.  The Aussie Forum is that place!

I’ve now replaced the vBulletin forum as it didn’t suit the needs of the site.  Tonight, I’ve replaced it with the phpBB software.  It’s their latest software – phpBB Version 3.08.  In the next few days, I’ll add a Joomla CMS to the site to enhance the user experience.

I hope that you’ll call by and check out the site.  I also hope that you’ll start a topic and or add your opinion to an existing one.

FootyBeat website no more

For many years now, I’ve run another footy forum – it started out its life as “My Footy” and recently changed its name to “FootyBeat”. My time is a little more limited now than when I first started the My Footy website, so I’ve decided to do away with it and redirect all the site’s URLs to the Yellow and Black website.

I’ve run the AFL WebRing for nearly 10 years now and have used the My Footy/FootyBeat website to provide support, tips, and discussion about the WebRing with it’s members. I’ve also moved this forum to Yellow and Black so that members of the AFL WebRing can still get support where needed.

To get started as a member of the AFL WebRing, simply visit the WebRing Hub page and sign up!

vBulletin 4.1 – Now Available

I would like to announce that version 4.1 of vBulletin Publishing Suite and vBulletin Forum is now available. If you have an active vBulletin license, you can download your copy of 4.1 from the vBulletin Members Area at: http://members.vbulletin.com

Two items that we had envisaged to make available as 4.1

  • Updated Editor – to enable WYSIWYG editing in Webkit browsers (Chrome/Safari)
  • “Flexible URL Mapping”

Are not included in this release. Due to both the editor, and the flexible URL mapping affecting all aspects of our product, development and QA has taken a longer period of time than we had initially envisaged, and we are not sufficiently satisfied with the level of quality of either item to release them as features in their current state. Both items will be made available in future releases. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.

Here is a list of the major features and/or bug fixes that are included in 4.1
The list of template and file changes can be found below this post.

Website change

I’ve decided to change the main website of Peter’s Web and IT Services from http://www.petersweb.com.au to http://www.petersweb.net.

This change reflects the product range being available worldwide, so it was important to have a less-geographical domain name.

The .com.au domain name will be kept for some time to ensure that you can always find me!

Deadline Approaching for End of Support for Windows XP Service Pack 2

Tuesday 13 July should be marked in your diaries if you use Windows XP SP2 as from this date Microsoft will end support of this product as part of the normal product lifecycle policy. End of support means that if you are using Windows XP SP2, you will no longer receive security updates. Microsoft strongly recommends that you have upgrade to Windows XP Service Pack 3, which is a complimentary download.*

  • Support for Windows Vista without any service packs ended on April 13, 2010.
  • Support for Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (SP2) will end on July 13, 2010.**

If you’re running one of these versions after support ends, you won’t get security updates for Windows.

* Download charges may apply as set by your Internet Service Provider

** Note: There’s no SP3 for the 64-bit version of Windows XP. If you’re running the 64-bit version of Windows XP with SP2, you have the latest service pack and will continue to be eligible for support and receive updates until April 8, 2014.
