Welcome (phpBB version)

Greetings, and welcome to Nitemare Cafe! You may be asking yourself, "What is Nitemare Cafe?" Well, the answer is simple. Nitemare Cafe is the BBS that I ran for several years. Well, I've decided that it's time to bring it back! While it originally ran under WWIV as a dial-up BBS, it currently runs under phpBB2 as a web-based BBS. Why? Because I don't have time to get all of the quirks worked out to allow telnet (or even java) access to WWIV. Also, the community behind phpBB reminds me very much of the old WWIV community. Source code is available, thus there is an active modding community very similar to my WWIV days. I may eventually find myself with time to work on WWIV, but until then phpBB2 is an excellent replacement.

phpBB (again)

I think I've made the decision to use just phpBB for my site. I'll probably wrap some other stuff around it, but I can't see a point in having one location for news, with comments, and a separate where users can post. Seems kinda counter-intuitive to me. So, with some additional work, Nitemare Cafe will be ready.

I've got some real forums available via phpBB at I'm probably going to be installing either PHPnuke, PostNuke, or SlashCode soon, but it could be that phpBB, along with some custom coding, is what I really want to go with. I'm just not sure yet. Anyone have any thoughts?

Bug Fixed!

Bug Fixed! I've already discovered a bug and stomped it. Thanks, Jon, for the idea of redirecting elsewhere. Combined with a simple meta-refresh, all should be fine now :)

The original Welcome post

Welcome to the new Nitemare Cafe site! Right now, posting is kind of a free-for-all, so be gentle! I'll probably make some changes to it in the near future, as I get time.
