Upgrade PHPBB from 2.0.19 to 2.0.22

I upgraded my G2Soft Supporting forum yesterday.
The latest one is 2.0.22.
It took me about 15 minutes to upgrade it from 2.0.19. Easy and smooth.
The PHPBB can be downloaded here.
The PHPBB is simple to upgrade, but the mods I installed are not working any more. I have to fix them or install a updated version.
I use two mods, Userlist and attachment.
I found Userlist 2.0.6C and install it in 10 minutes.
The Attachment mod is so complicated. I spent over 30 minutes to go thought lots of files to do the modifications.
Now everything is fine.
Thanks to these author of Freeware.

Try Google Toolbar for Firefox 3

I use Firefox for all my regular web use, except some special web site I have to use IE Tab.
The current Google Toolbar for Firefox I used is 2.1.

Some IE version features were not provided on Firefox version. Say, Google Bookmarks, Google Accounts login.
Now Google release the 3.0 Google Toolbar 3.0 for Firefox.
This my most wanted feature. So I don’t need Firefox Google Bookmarks any more.

This is also a good improvement for Google Toolbar.

Image Viewer from FastStone

I have a very long history to use the image viewer software. I still remember my first PC. It is 386DX40 with 4Mb memory, and 170Mb hard-disk. The monitor is 14″.
Just like other teenage boys, I use ACDSee for lots and lots of photos copied from my classmates.
It is running on DOS. Even when I have a Windows 3.11 on my computer, I always reboot to DOS to watch images. It is very fast and easy to control.
I have not found any software which can let have the same experience as ACDSee 2.4. I use ACDSee Pro 8.0 now. I don’t like it. It is changed to bigger and slower.
Let’s see the file size of ACDSee in its version history:
ACDSee 1.0 for Windows 95 (0.5 MB)
ACDSee 2.1 (0.6 MB)
ACDSee 2.22 (0.9 MB)
ACDSee 2.4 (1.9 MB)
ACDSee 2.42 (1.9 MB)
ACDSee 2.43 (1.6 MB)
ACDSee 2.45 (German) (2.0 MB)
ACDSee 3.0 (3.9 MB)
ACDSee 3.10 (5.7 MB)
ACDSee 4.01 (11.4 MB)
ACDSee 4.02 (10.8 MB)
ACDSee 5.0.1 (11.1 MB)
ACDSee 7.0 (14.8 MB)
ACDSee 8.0 (12.1 MB)
ACDSee 8.1 (24.2 MB)
I like slim software and freeware.
Until now, I saw FastStone, it is a Freeware.
There are three products I’d like to introduce to my Blog readers.
FastStone Image Viewer 2.8

A fast, stable, user-friendly image browser, converter and editor. It has a nice array of features that include image viewing, management, comparison, red-eye removal, emailing, resizing, cropping and color adjustments.
