LandzDown Lounge / LandzDown Forum IRC
« on: July 11, 2007, 09:09:27 PM »
I am just kidding BTW.  :tease:

Something we'd like to reveal to everyone is we have own our IRC server. In short, it's simply a server for you to meet, and chat with us (the team).

Simply click here:

It will launch a web Java applet. This is only a test applet, so beware, call it beta if you wish  :tease:

When you click the link, it will launch a Java applet, which will connect to our IRC server ( and automatically join the main channel.

When you use the web applet, you are automatically given a username of LzdGuest### (### = random numbers). If you want to change this, simply put this command into the message box and hit Enter: /nick NEWNICKNAME

(Obviously substituting NEWNICKNAME with the username you want. Since this is just a simple, test applet at the moment, the feature of choosing a username before connecting has yet to be added.)

So please, join us!

LandzDown Lounge / Clickable colour bar
« on: June 23, 2007, 09:53:28 AM »
Please do tell me if the new clickable colour bar is annoying, I'll get rid of it. Found it lying in the SMF mod site, liked the look of it.  :mitch:

(It is only enabled for those using the default theme. I didn't want to go ahead and put it onto the other themes yet incase no one actually liked it)

Microsoft is keeping to a plan to stop selling the operating system even though surveys show a lukewarm response to Windows Vista among consumers.

Personally I'm keeping XP for a little while yet.

Not sure who on this board will be using FTP software, but I have to recommend:

I was using Core FTP before, but just switched to this one and love it. Heard about it from Mikey's stuff.

Web News / WMP 11 Beta released
« on: May 17, 2006, 07:41:51 PM »

Apparently, it is easy to rollback, just using Add/Remove Programs. I never updated to 10 because I have seen some many problems with it and it wasn't easily uninstalled (although MS says in the FAQ there, even 11 can't be uninstalled entirely)
