Another upgrade coming... maybe later today!?

10 posts in this topic

Theres an upgrade to the current version of vb 3 that we are currently using. It has a couple bug fixes and a security fix that we'll probably upgrade to later today. Nothing at all like vb 4 and nobody will even see a difference. Its just all backend stuff to make what we have run a little more efficiently. Also, since we've decided to put vb4 work off for the foreseeable future, I'm going to try the vb4/vb3 compatible chat box upgrade so it'll finally work correctly like it was for vb4. I'll also fix my current youtube code and probably make a new hulu and dailymotion one as I don't think the media embedding mod we used is fixed, or will work correctly anytime soon.

yeah, i'm kinda burnt out on vb and software crap. -_- so time consuming.

now about those ribs... hmmm.... maybe I can layer a few strips of mostly cooked bacon across the mostly done ribs, and then cement them to the rack with a slathering of sauce that will caramelize onto the ribs... then when I cut the ribs apart, each rib will have a couple small squarish pieces of bacon under the sauce.. the extra grease could add to the juiciness of the ribs.

I think I'll try this next time. ;)

I do have another food blog to post. I made a juicy lucy burger, which is a grilled burger that is stuffed with cheese. It tastes alot better than it sounds. X'D

*baking a lasagna tonight, recipe is in my blog :-p*

Well, if you pre-cook the ribs, you could probally wrap them in the bacon, leave them on the grill a few minutes for the bacon to get a bit of crispness, then slather with BBQ sauce. *ponders*

If I ever get a chance to come up there again, we will make the Turbacondurken. *EG*


Yesterday was the deadline for all complaints!

Actually, the Turbacondurken is something you make for a large group of people. One actual serving of that doesn't contain that much fat, since most of it drains off in the cooking process. Plus, you don't have to eat the bacon, it's really only there as a spice. It's something you make when you know you're going have a lot of people come over. I really want to make it for some people here, but since BF is Jewish, no bacon.

There's actually a site where the guy photographed the process and keeps track of what he did and how he cooked it. He said the leftovers made good sandwiches for like a week for him and his friends. XD

So you will just have to wait like every one. Except if you live in japan. Maybye a fews months to a year less then us but not until 6 years from now. But if you cant wait get a 360.

      Some answers to important licensing questions - vBulletin Community Forum
      With so many vbulletin customers bitching about the possibility of vBulletin charging for an upgrade to the vb 4 code, vbulletin has finally announced that they will not charge for the upgrade... but they will be implementing new license terms.. with their current terms they were obligated to not charge for a new major version upgrade. But my guess is that the new terms will allow them to make as much money as possible by screwing people over on future upgrades.
      The f*cking vbulletin suite upgrade better be reasonably priced. *shakes fist at vb*

      [ame=http://forums.ancientclan.com/showthread.php?t=9752"]vBulletin = FAIL - Ancient Clan Forums[/ame]
      Here is the email I received from vbulletin:
      The vbulletin team announced that vBulletin 4.0 would come out by the end of June 2009. It is October 14th today and with an announcement like this and a new website, you would think vbulletin 4.0 has finally been released! But no! It is still in alpha testing, there is no demo available and I have been given the opportunity to purchase the upgrade to the suite for the $130 discount for only 16-17 more days. And they still have not announced when the vb 4.0 version will even come out.
      And even though I bought the blog add-on for $50 a year ago, I get the same discount price as someone who only owns just the forum license. wtf.
      When my license support renewal is up, which last year would have costed me $40 for updates, will now cost me $195 for the new license if I haven't paid the $130 or more by then to download vbulletin 4.0 which may still not be out by then considering they are 4 months behind schedule with no product.
      So. We will probably continue running vb 3.8 until we find another alternative or vbulletin changes their pricing structure (which I'm sure they won't). I wouldn't mind paying for new forum software, we've spent plenty on vb over the years with renewal costs and one time purchases. But I can't justify staying with the company because of the part I have put in bold above.
      If we use just the forums and pay the initial upgrade price of $195 or so in january and switch to a free blog system because the version we have won't be compatible with vb 4.0... we'll still be stuck with another issue. Once vb 5.0 comes out (which should be 12-18 months according to a staff member), we'll have to buy a brand new vbulletin license for version 5 at the full price of another $195. And assuming a new major release then comes out every 1 or 2 years, it'll be hundreds of dollars every year or two just to keep using this software that still doesn't do everything I want it to do.
      I'm really starting to hate vbulletin. If I want to stay with this forum software, the only way I'll save money is by paying the cheaper upgrade cost of $130 which gives me the entire suite, but I only have 16 days to make my decision or pay $200 in January and only get the forum software.
      WTF!
      Anyone have any forum or blog recommendations? I was thinking about invision power board, but they're in the process of releasing a new cms like system and I don't know if that will be bundled in with their current suite. But even ipb is $250 for the suite with $60 renewal costs. But even that price is better than the new vbulletin price structure. Apparently, I have to make a decision within 16 days. *kicks vB in the balls*

      The improvements they are making to IPB look really great. Some of the highlights for me:
      http://community.invisionpower.com/blog/1174/entry-9537-ips-40-editor-part-1-content/
      Embeds will always work. Now that is a huge difference.
      http://community.invisionpower.com/blog/1174/entry-9538-ips-40-editor-part-2-uploads/
      Drag and drop images right into the editor. I've been waiting for this feature. No more having to click attach and then navigate to the right folder where your image is.. just drag it right into the editor.
      http://community.invisionpower.com/blog/1174/entry-9539-ips-40-editor-part-3-customisation-and-bbcode/
      This is a big change and I hope they pull it off correctly. All our custom bbcodes will be negated. But the only custom bbcode we actually use is the spoiler tag, which will now be a default feature. All other custom bbcodes will now have to be created as CKEditor plugins.. but there are already a lot of ckeditor plugins available. So I could technically add a variety of new editor features.
      http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/388306-ips-40-editor-part-4-special-features/
      Very very nice. I like this.
      Good! No more having to click the load saved content option. Simplifying this will make the auto save much better.
      Oh! and the editor will now be fully skin-able! The editor won't have to be glaring white on a dark theme anymore.
      Also, the current skins that we use are going to be upgraded for IPB 4.0. We won't have to change the entire look of the site.

      The gallery has been a bit underused over the past year and it might have to do with the fact that I never increased the gallery upload amounts since my initial testing of it. If thats not the case, then oh well, I increased the limits!
       
      AC Elite members can now upload 100 MB of images. The max file size of uploaded images are now 4 MB per image. If you have pictures over 4 MB, the server will deny the upload because I don't have any software in place to auto shrink down an image.
       
      Regular members can now upload 20 MB of images with a max file size of 2 MB per image.
       
      Feel free to upload images to whatever category you have access to as long as the image actually belongs in it. For example, you have a good walking dead image, post it in that gallery if you want to. You can also make your own albums and upload whatever images you want to share.
       
      You can have public, friends only or private galleries. But keep in mind, only upload appropriate images. No vulgar, offensive, etc. images. Also, private albums aren't necessarily private as administrators can access them.
       
      The gallery albums are very useful if you want to upload your own smilies or other images. Once you upload an image to your own galleries, you can click the "My Media" link anywhere on the site where you can make a comment and click to add any image you have previously uploaded to your posts.

      At some point we'll be at new data center.. I'm not entirely certain when it'll happen. Probably within the next couple days. The old server was in NJ, this server will be in MD. We might get a bit faster load times. The site will not go down and there is no planned maintenance. In fact everything is being transferred live with no down time. I've also been meaning to optimize AC for increased performance, load times, etc. because this site could potentially be significantly faster if I put some effort into troubleshooting a couple things.. but I'm holding off on doing that until we upgrade to IPB4 sometime later this year.
