I want to start a bulletin/message board (no, not about A2M). Is vBulletin good? Do I need to be some kind of technical bloody genius? Pointers? Suggestions? Hosting companies?

Thanks.

Shit, I'm so rusty with the technology, havn't worked with it in 2 years (whoa!) I wish I could help you out but I'm sure one of the boys is more up to date with front-end tools available for non-developers.

But based on my 4 years of experience in development (Oracle and SQL Server), learning to write stored procedures in SQL takes some training. But if you have the discipline, you can teach yourself with a book or by taking a course. You can probably get it in a few weeks if you put your mind to it. I know you can do it girl! I can help you with some code functionality questions as well.....

I'd start with the front-end first. Kat obviously has considerable back-end experience, and is willing to educate, but you might want to take it slow and go that route after first gaining a solid foundation in managing the front-end. In my experience, individual systems can vary widely in their sensitivity to back-end manipulation. The last thing you want to do is crash the whole system by probing the back-end too soon like some over-eager hacker.

Take a look at wowbb (www.wowbb.com (http://www.wowbb.com/)). They offer a package of software, domain registration, and hosting that is very reasonable. I've heard good things about these folks. And no, you don't need to be a guru.

Keep learning SQL as the sequel.

Pick up Beginning PHP, Apache, MYSql.
You can walk through the install rather easily by following the cookbook.
Installs easier on Apache than MSserver.

Have a nice query.

If you are starting a forum, go for SimpleMachines SMF. Easy to install and very very powerful.

Rusty or not, I'm turned on.

Does it cost extra for you to whisper dirty geek into a custy's ear?

If you're going down the freeware circuit, you're going to have headaches to start, but very strong level of stability, if I can help, let me know.
