Sweet. Oww, it chafes! No, serious, that'll really help the usability of the new style.

No, Intel Pentium 4 processors and prior are 32-bit, as well as AMD Athlons. The AMD Opteron and Hammer and 64-bit / x86 compatible. Even Apple's Motorola processors were 32-bit until the G5.

Re: phpBB's storage of time and dates in the database

I believe unix time format is more flexible and faster. It is much easier and faster to use the time() function, which gives the same results based in the Unix Epoch regardless of the time zone you are in, and convert the results to whatever format you need using the built in PHP functions. If time...

yyyy-mm-dd is used for birthdays, AFAIK.
The SQL column type "TIMESTAMP" is yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss

It couldn't be that difficult, could it? It's just a combination of strtotime() and date(), isn't it?

phpBB's storage of time and dates in the database

Post, edit and other times are stored in the database as a int(11) column time (for UNIX timestamp). I would like to ask why the developers chose to do that. Is it faster than yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss? Database compatibility? Although -- the ANSI SQL standard supports the TIMESTAMP column type, and all t...

Re: Who ever said the developers don't listen?

I agree that an option to print an entire thread (or a range of pages within a thread) would be very handy. Often folks on my forums want to print out a five or six page thread and it's would be a bit inconvenient to have to print each page separately. If the devs don't offfer such, I wouldn't be s...
