Crappy web pages over which I have dominion don’t just annoy me, they gnaw at my soul. Â Each time an crappy UI or non-standard implementation of a tool is required, I feel that somewhere, a member of ICANN or the W3C cries a little and I feel responsible. Â For the last two months, Team Interrobang used phpBB3 as its forum software and WordPress as its front end and, while Â I absolutely adore WordPress, phpBB is a well intentioned pile of PHP, spit and duct tape. Â This experiment was such a farce that I’m starting Â a campaign to ignore Rev 4 of teaminterrobang.com and convince people that it just took us two longs months to switch from Joomla! toÂ vBulletinÂ and have posted such repeatedly. Â Someone picked up on my attempted whitewash and replied to my statement that we’d never used phpBB with “We‘veÂ Always Been at War with Eastasia“.
Culturally aware bastard.
