After all that effort (still ongoing) to convert from Perl/.txt files to PHP/MySQL ... was it worth the headache? ;D Let me know!

Plus ... lets test out the first poll of the new boards !!

Nonono ... there *is* a script. I just couldn't get it to work for the longest time. I finally figured it out.

It kept giving me file not found and path errors. It turns out it was because I was telling it the old .txt files were located at /forum/Boards and /forum/Messages but they were really at /forum/boards and /forum/messages (the default is capitalized).
