Topic: Just Thanks!
I just want to say that punbb was wildly easy to get up and running. I installed it at sometime after 2:00--breaking the cardinal rule to never mess with stuff too much after midnight--and I was in bed by 3:00. And it was a local installation (OSX) which required me to d/l mysql first and, you know, figure out how to make a database and all that--which was most of why I was up so late.
Point being, something should have gone wrong, and it didn't.
So. Anyway. Just great. Really. I'm totally impressed. Thanks.
