Updates Part II

In addition to updating PHPNuke and fixing/adding/cleaning up a few
modules, as Fusion mentioned, I’ve finally gotten around to purchasing ThaSauce.net.
Currently I just own the domain, which redirects to here, and anyone
who remembers the ThaSauce.Fusion2004p.com host will remember that if
you’re using IE and logging in via the redirect, you’ll get logged out.

Once the majority of the kinks are worked out of the site and I can
afford it, I can just update the domain for hosting, bumping up the
price from $10 a year to $10 a month (more or less), but until then
this works. =P

Updates and Upgrade COMPLETE!

I was able to upgrade the site’s engine, PHPNuke, to version 7.8
successfully, as well as update some misc files WITHOUT breaking
anything. The previous problems with Private Messages and the
semi-nonexistent Forums have disapoofed.

This means:
A. Rama will be happy that his site is FINALLY operational again.
B. I will have the satisfaction of momentary peace from Rama’s insistent nagging.
and C. ThaSauce is still your place of holy worship… err, your place
where you can get the latest on games, music, anime, or any combination
of the three!
Yeah, that’s what I meant. Really.

Over the next couple days, Rama and I plan to implement a serious of
updates to the site, which might even include an option for users to
have their own blog right here on ThaSauce!

(Screw LiveJournal, ThaSauce for teh win!)

In his comments for Jivemaster’s remix “Lava Reach” on Wednesday, djpretzel announced that Israfel is voluntarily stepping down from his position on the Judges Panel “probably for good.”
He is the third judge to leave the Panel in since May. djpretzel did not name a replacement for him.

to this site, which have incalculably improved our standards and vastly
widened our horizons,” djpretzel said.
Israfel, A.K.A. Micheal Dover, has stepped down from
the Judges Panel once before due to time constraints, according to
djpretzel, but he “graciously returned” when his schedule became more
