      Oh how nice and generous of Micro$oft! You can always count on the friendly people there to help out everyone, to share ideas, to give credit where credit is due, to not stab anyone in the back, and to make sure companies like Jelsoft can truly make it without having to be corrupted by the anti-competitive folks at *nix.
      Well, there it is.

        So you are saying this won't run on Unix?! Unix is like THE most used OS for hosting sites... Wouldn't you want to focus your time creating it for something that is mainly geared towards unix-based-sites (IE php) Although not strictly on unix, it is more prevalant no doubt...

            Out of interest, which feature is everyone looking forward to more, the Intuitive Reply Engine® or the Neural Interface linking your brain to vbulletin that Martin talked about on the first page? The answer would help the devs know where to foucs their development time.

              Well, folks, it seems that some here weren't understanding that we were trying to deflect questions about new features in vB 3 by making up outrageous ones, so rather than upset those people, we will admit to it being a joke.

              Since you *are* wanting to know about knew features, though, I asked and received permission from John to let you know about our new security process that will do away with the need for passwords.
              In vB 3 we will be requiring retinal scans as part of the registration process. When existing users log in for the first time after upgrade, they will receive a pop-up alerting them that their account will be locked until they submit to the retinal scan.
              If a user hasn't visited the board in 3 or more days, or if they are trying to access from an IP that is outside their normal cluster of IPs, they will receive the popup box again and have to submit to the retinal scan again so we know it isn't someone just using a computer they were once cookied on.

              We feel that this is the most secure way of protecting user accounts and thwarting wouldbe hackers and are really proud to be the first message board company to deploy this tight a security measure.

                Martin, remeber to use the registered trademark symbol for SecureScan® technology, we can't have our competitors (the ones that are not starting from scratch that is) stealing our ideas

                      I picked up one of the older Automatic Retinal Scan Engines from a flea market 6 months ago - never thought I'd need it. Now I know i don't have to throw it away - thanks, Martin, you saved my A.R.S.E!

                            Well, actually, we're incorporating a server-side scanner that was developed under GPL, so it will be free for download and you can easily install it on the server yourself. We will probably bundle it with the downloads, since it's only 15 Mb compressed.
                            The only hitch is, to work properly over the net, it requires that the end-user have an EnergStar compliant monitor set to no more tha 640 x 480 screen resolution. They are working on settings detection software that will switch it automatically, then switch it back to what the end-user had before, but I don't know if that will be ready by the time we go to market. It will be a slight inconvenience to the end-users, but they'll get used to it after a few months.
