Yes, converting the old forum to a format understood by any other forum software was difficult and would take some time. The old forum software was a bit of a hacker's dream and that, combined with my dayjob taking way too much time is why I finally had enough and just shut it down. Today I would have had the time to work around the problems but time moves on...


I think the value would be not so much in making it usable as a functioning forum again, but as a huge collection of textual data that could be searched for relative tidbits of information and history. For example, what was the community thinking when the FBM-1 was released? We don't need to reply to those old threads, don't even neccessarily need them in a threaded format, but it would be great to see what people were saying.

As functioning forum software, it's not needed, but as an archeological resource, it would be nice. I can't imagine the database schema from the old software is so obtuse the contents couldn't be dumped into flat files.

Cool, easiest way is probably to send me an e-mail with the images. My address is borgetx@hotmail.com

I've published the first version of the BossArea app on google play.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... s.BossArea

I've already noticed some issues so there will be an update quite soon.
One minor issue is that I forgot a label in the label gallery. I'll leave it as a quiz to those that install to figure out which one is missing :D

Report any bugs or wishes here, to my email borgetx@hotmail.com or join the BossArea Facebook group (not to be confused with the bossarea group).

Cool :)
Just realized there's a bug where the app crashes when clicking a search result. Sorry about that. It will be fixed tomorrow.

Hadn't tried using the search function. Was just having fun browsing around the various categories :)
