PHPBB Upgraded
To avoid being hacked by the Russians due to an old installation of PHPBB, I have upgraded our forum. I am still working on restoring the logo and restoring the links from the "home page" (teampenthouse.com) on the top right to actually show the latest topics. That said, the forum should be 95% working now. If you are getting the default blue and silver theme and want something red, I have installed a style called "Revolution" that seems pretty good. You should be able to choose it in the user control panel. Our old style does not work with the new PHPBB.

Attempting PHPBB upgrade
I am upgrading our PHPBB right now. Might cause problems momentarily. If we do not see each other again, fall back to the Facebook group!

PHP5 Update
So, I just updated this hosting account to PHP5. I'm not sure what the repercussions will be. BTW, this is after the "site down?" thing that Mike and I were seeing tonight. But let me know if you see any weird script errors or anything.

And back again
Thanks to Rob for pointing out there was another problem. It was also related to the MySQL upgrade. It should be fixed now. For the curious, it was this: https://www.phpbb.com/kb/article/doesnt-have-a-default-value-errors/

...and we're back
Didn't notice we were gone? You're welcome. The database is migrated to the new MySQL5 instance, and everything should continue to run smoothly. Let me know if you see any weirdness.

Possible downtime
Our web host is deactivating MySQL 4 and moving to MySQL 5 in the next week or so. I have to migrate the data over, and there may be an outage either while I'm migrating it, or if I don't get it migrated before MySQL 4 gets shut off. Just a heads-up.

Forums up (and have been)
In case leaving that last post at the top was confusing, the forums were up about an hour after they went down. So now they're up.

Short forums downtime
I'm upgrading to the newest PHPBB (just bug fixes and security patches), so it may be down for a few minutes. Talk amongst yourselves. I'll give you a topic. The Eagles of Death Metal are neither eagles nor a death metal band. Discuss.

The site's back! We had a little "malware" problem. Hopefully you weren't too negatively affected. Celebrate our return by watching Brett Favre get hit in the nuts.

Forums out?
Yeah, I'm not sure what's going on. Hopefully some kind of database blip. I'll look into it if it keeps up very long.

The aforementioned transition to PHPBB3 is now (sort of) complete. There are still a few things I need to fix:

1. Avatars seem to be getting scrunched to 80px even though I changed the limit to 200px.

2. RSS might not work right now.

3. Need to replace the generic logo at the top with a TPH logo.

4. The nav bar of recent posts on the right side of this page probably won't update correctly.

Sorry if this causes anybody headaches. I should have most of these fixed in the next couple of days.

It's that time of year again...
...where I post about how nothing has changed in the past year.

Happy More-Than-Fourth Birthday, TPH.com
Can you believe I went more than a year without updating this front page at all? Jeez, I should be more creative.

Happy Third Birthday, teampenthouse.com!
Can you believe Thursday is the third anniversary of the beginning of this site? (Check the oldest post at the bottom of this page.) No ice cream cones to celebrate this time. I have made some updates, which is more than I can say about the past year or so.

1.) Updated the left-side links to point to you guys' new web addresses.

2.) Upgraded to the latest phpBB, so that hopefully our site won't get h4x0R'd as much. (Actually, this has happened, believe it or not.)

3.) Some small changes to the code that allows updates to this page.

4.) Removed the link to ebaumsworld. Duh.

So all in all, you won't notice much. I do have plans to do more work soon, though. Maybe a new look, maybe an RSS feed, maybe some new TPH Museum items. We'll see. Let me know your requests in the TPH.com Feature Request thread.

New Usernames
Dan and Kyle's usernames have changed to Dan and Kyle, respectively. If you'd like yours changed, or if you're having trouble logging in, let me know.

Happy Decemberween!
I hope you all get some nice tube socks.

Dead Week Gaming Ladder is up. The link's on the left side of this page.

Rochester Pictures
For those who were worried that my new living space isn't up to snuff, rest assured. Here are some photos, if you're interested. Click here to find my new Block Party placement.

I moved the Duluth pics to pages 2 and 3.

Duluth Pictures!!!....wait, what?
Oh, yeah. I went to Duluth on Memorial Day weekend. If any of you wonder what that's like, but don't want to make the 11-hour trek from West Lafayette, check out my photos. Here they are.

apologies for the jankiness
This site is still way early in development, like version 0.0.1. So there are a few things janky about it. For instance, sometimes when you're in phpbb, it will come back to this page, like when you log in. Just click on the link to the right ---->
and you'll go back to phpbb. This will be fixed eventually.

Also, if you want to keep up on what our plans are for the site, don't just check on Mondays. Check on, like, Wednesday, or maybe Friday.

Welcome to teampenthouse.com!
So you all found your respective ways here. Good deal. This site will be awesome in the two following ways:

1.) It has a forum. You can go to it by using the link on the right. See it over there? --->
Go to it and register so you can be awesome like me and Evan.

2.) It will eventually link to all of your pages as well. And it will do so much more. You will be able to post here, like I just did, and tell us all when you add stuff like duty schedules to your web sites. And there will be links to your sites on the left side by my link and Evan's link.

So look forward to that stuff. As this page says, it will be updated on Mondays. Same as Homestar Runner.

Here's what you all can send me or Evan:

1.) Suggestions and ideas for the site.
2.) A link to your web site.
3.) Phone numbers of hot girls you meet.

So that's all for now. Make sure you set a bookmark.
