A_Jelly_Doughnut, great to have a bbs veteran with us still. If we ever have a phpBB historian here, you are the one.
hmm....

In terms of the portal project, from what I remember it was not offically "abandoned", but put on hold so the developers could spend the time coding then 2.2 (now Olympus). Paul had posted that it was set aside but not sure when or if development would return. I for one would like to see the project return after Olympus goes Gold and the dev's take some well deserved time off.

Also, as far as I remember, A_Jelly_Doughnut is correct in that BartVB was never Dev team leader - at least not as far as the authors page for olympus (which has just been modified in CVS) http://phpbb.cvs.sourceforge.net/phpbb/ ... 19&r2=1.20

It's true that it was never officially abandoned (as far as I know), but I don't recall any of the developers saying that the project was put on hold because of time constraints during 2.2 development. I recall portal developers saying something to the effect that proper portal integration was problematic with the state of the 2.2 codebase, but we're well beyond that problem. Since the portal team no longer exists, and since when it did exist it was unable to develop anything resurrect-able, I think it's fairer to say that the project was abandoned rather than postponed.

Sam, yes... that was my impression as well.
And I think it’s fair to assume they won’t attempt it again anytime soon in the near future.

I know cultural ignorance and myopia is unfortunately pervasive nowadays... but serious, what the hell do they teach at school now? The world before 1900's didn't exist?

I wonder whatever happened to any of the work that was done on the portal. I know that with all of the code changes since ca. mid 2004 the actual code would not work, but I'm curious to see what their ideas were. The thing that appealed to me most about the phpBB portal was that the portal was going to be built around phpBB, not phpBB integrated into a portal. I dug this link out of my favorites: http://phpbb.cvs.sourceforge.net/phpbb/ ... ideattic=1, but I'd assumed more work had been done, but I guess not.

Not sure I deserved that. :|
Anyhow, I don’t live in England, so I don’t live with sayings/quotes like that on a daily basis. :roll:

Well, I don’t live in England too, but this saying is familiar to me. It seems to be more used in Europe than in rest of the world, isn’t it? :mrgreen:

I think so... we’re not thinking about the kings and queens of America because... we don’t have them.
Sure I’ve heard it before, but it was YEARS ago. :D
It’s like we don’t use "cheers", or "Sticky-wicket" (sp?)... most Americans have no idea what either of those mean.
"He’s a Benedict Arnold", "affirmative action", "bachelorette", "from the bayou", "blacktop", "boondocks", "caboose", "catercorner", "cookout", "New York minute" are just a handful of popular terms we Americans use that the rest of the world may or may not not be familiar with.

Anyways, this is offtopic...
