I am from Brooksville, Florida and I actually stumbled upon YABB searching for something else.
  

A thunderous silence&&breaks through my thoughts.&&What was once many great ideas&&is now a triumph, lost.&&&&Baffling words tumble through my mind.&&Reflections of darkness hover.&&A disturbing peacefulness beckons to me,&&and inside myself, I take cover.&&&&What would it be like to stay there forever?&&To be lost in all my cares?&&From the inside, looking out -&&I cry silent tears.

Trust me, I know the feeling.  I used to be heavy into programming years ago.  But I haven't done anything in so long that the only thing that I have even bothered with lately is HTML based that is one of the reasons why I chose to go with a YaBB board over a .php board or any one of the others.  I just don't remember alot of it.

Yes, it is. Smiley There used to never be a post on this board that was marked as "Unread" for me. As soon as it was posted, I read it. Especially that support board.

I actually miss tech support, I had to admit. It was fun to have the answers. Wish I still did. Now I can't even support my own code it's been so long. lol.

@ Dave

It is easy to get hooked here.  I haven't known about or been around long but I am definitely hooked.  Between 7am and 5pm I am usually lurking around looking and reading other post.  I have learned a bunch that I didn't know and I think I have helped a few others as well.

By the way always good to see someone make a cameo and even better when they stick around awhile.   Smiley

I'm from Murfreesboro, TN.

I found YaBB in either late 1999 or early 2000, back when it had an .ru domain, I think? Maybe .nl? I can't remember. It was an .org or a .com yet, that much I know. Cheesy I think I found it on cgi-resources.com, along with a bunch of others, and picked it after a shorted go-around with Anyboard (blech!). That was back when YabbHelp's website was online with Freeservers before they went down. That's where I first met Tim C., who was my first real contact in YaBB. He bent over backwards to help me get it set up, so I figured I should do something to help out, and I wanted to learn some things so I could modify my message board (think I was making it for our CS clan at the time), and I fixed a small problem with the BB code email regex and submitted it to Zef. After that, I was hooked. Cheesy

north Uk, near manchester and stockport...


and I was very apreciative of the YaBBSE version out a couple of years ago in use on www.norwichyfc.co.uk... i checked it out, thinking it was going to cost a lot of money, and found out it was free.

I looked it all up, but my server didn't have mySQL, so i checked on to old-skool yabb, and it was fine.

First installation was a little bit cumbersome, problems caused by case sensitivity, my desire to change all default paths and urls, my servers reluctance to run set up scripts and having different base dirs for cgi and html docs... and most of all the difference between smilies and smileys.

YaBB hacking has taught me perl, i have modded like crazy, and I am very happy with it.

Wow..I'm surprised I never replied to this thread for so long.
Anyway:

1: I live just outside of a little town called Glen Rock, in the scenic state of Pennsylvania, in the United States of America.
2: I found YaBB after becoming a member to a gaming forum (now offline).

I am from North Carolina and I found YaBB through our sites web designer.  He started our own YaBB forum and I have had lots of fun using it and now I have decided to start looking at and joing other Forums as well. 

YaBB Forums are a great way to communicate ideas and technical assistance
