It’s Douglas’ first week away from phpBB Weekly in many months–since last summer, in fact. And that’s when David loses some of his senses by allowing the other guys from StarTrekGuide to come on the show, to the point where they end up taking over. Why is that a problem? Because they have no standards, and start discussing topics that we wouldn’t dare to mention on the show typically. Specifically: global warming, religion, politics, the best web browsers, the fastest-growing chicken trade in China, and how to suck a hard-boiled egg into a beer bottle.
But once those are out of the way, they unveil details on the soon-to-be-released Whizby CMS project, a new CMS being developed by the STG folks that is based on the core code and APIs of phpBB. Then David responds to this topic by discussing a bit about what motivates a developer to take on a MOD, and why users who request free MODs can’t always expect Santa to deliver them exactly what they want.
