Nope - I never tried the freeware version. At my day job I set up version 5.10 and there are a few things that are different, but nothing that makes a difference to me. It seems there are a lot of people that use the free version, so it must be pretty decent.
This site is making me hungry! Other than that, I have no complaints. Nice to see the UBB in action on the Web instead of an intranet. It does have a really nice layout, and deserves more exposure! Also, very nice implementation!

I have a forum called "Sockets and Internet Protocols" - I take it that what you want to talk about is different than that? Hardware stuff? CIFS/SMB?

Yes. Sockets and Internet Protocols is the answer. I must have overlooked it because I didn't know what Sockets are, but do understand Internet Protocols. Thanks!!

What kind of space requirements(HD space) are you seeing? How much space does your ISP give you? Is there a way to only authorize only certain people to see/be able to get into certain threads? Also, What happened to the "notify me by email if someone responds" thing?
space: I dunno. Starts off with a meg or two. ISP: Not sure. Prolly ten megs. authorize: The new version has private forums of all sorts. It is available now. I'm putting off upgrading because in two weeks they will have a digest feature. Since I've made several modifications to the software, I don't want to have to make all those mods twice. notify: That feature is available only if you post a new topic. If you like it, I encourage you to start more topics! I think the new version may have some facility for alling "reply" people to have the e-mail sent too. We'll find out in a coupla weeks! Have you noticed the "profile signature" thing?
By the way, is there any way to turn off the automatic notification. On a few questions I've posted I still get notifications, even though my immediate requirement has been met. I still go back and browse those threads, but th egetting and junking of emails seems a little pointless.
Hi Paul, what a pleasure to continue a chat whitch started almost 2 years back thnx to Johannes.... One of my friend got a free version of this UBB forum .... i'll check that also. But he got no source code so how can that be modified....
