A few new forum sections were added to help organize our talks.

Two forum section inside the project forge department to allow expanding the discussions of Firadisk and Rmprepusb along with providing enough room for discussing other similar tools as they come along.

Three new sections for WinBuilder.exe that will be used as bug tracker to replace the current bug tracker wich will still be available but whose link will be removed to avoid having two bugtrackers for the same purpose.

For historical reasons the link to the older bugtracker is this: http://www.boot-land...ocom=bugtracker

If you have any more suggestions, do let me know!

:cheers:

It's a forge for software projects developed by members of the community.

The sort of place where people can post their work and get feedback by other members, perhaps even helping to kick start project to grown in terms of popularity.

It is a Forum inside boot-land. :)

You can find it here:
http://www.boot-land...hp?showforum=64

isn't is "sub-title" clear enough? :cheers:

This section is dedicated to freeware or open source works where popular projects get their own section.


Basically all new freeware or open source apps published on the board should go there, unless pertaining to another existing Forum or sub-forum.

Whenever something, either published originally on the board or simply "liked" by the members and somehow "supported" by them becomes "popular" and the number of posts in the boot-land "generic" section where it was originally posted become a nightmare as they are mixed all together with irrelevant threads or threads trelated to other things, we try to consolidate everything in a sub-forum, so that people can find everything related to the given software in one place.

If you want is also a way to give more "dignity" to the apps that deserve it or to "promote" them.

I have. Always thought that was a corruption of the word forge as well:

-verb (used with object)
1. to form by heating and hammering; beat into shape.
2. to form or make, esp. by concentrated effort: to forge a friendship through mutual trust.
3. to imitate (handwriting, a signature, etc.) fraudulently; fabricate a forgery.

–verb (used without object)
4. to commit forgery.
5. to work at a forge.
6. (of a horse at a trot) to strike the forefeet with the shoes of the hind feet.

–noun
7. a special fireplace, hearth, or furnace in which metal is heated before shaping.
8. the workshop of a blacksmith; smithy.


2. May be close to the definition of how its being used.

You've forgot adding the last paragraph that reported the synonyms as well:

Origin:
1250–1300; ME forgen < OF forgier < L fabricāre to fabricate; see fabric

Related forms:
forge⋅a⋅ble, adjective
forger, noun

Synonyms:
2. shape, fabricate, manufacture, fashion, mold.

http://dictionary.re...om/browse/forge

The title describes in a strong intuitive manner what should be discussed inside this section.

Or do you have better suggestions?

:)

Forge in this sense means "to make" or "to Create" something special and useful.

Sometimes it is easier for a Latin to grasp the root of an English word (of Latin origins) than for an English speaking peep.

Hey wait a minute, paraglider speaks American :cheers:

http://www.geocities.../Atlantis/2284/

In Latin languages from the same radix:
http://www.merriam-w...ictionary/forge

Main Entry: 1forge
Pronunciation: \ˈfȯrj\
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English, from Anglo-French, from Latin fabrica, from fabr-, faber smith
Date: 13th century
1 : a furnace or a shop with its furnace where metal is heated and wrought : smithy
2 : a workshop where wrought iron is produced or where iron is made malleable


We have:
Latin: fabrica
Italian: fabbrica
Spanish:fábrica
Portuguese:fábrica
French:fabrique

Which translates back in English as "factory" or "workshop".

In English, the noun "forge" has kept the original meaning of "particular workshop where blacksmith work", whilst the verb has mantained the meaning of (among the others):
http://www.synonyms.net/synonym/forge

5. (verb) invent, contrive, devise, excogitate, formulate, forge
come up with (an idea, plan, explanation, theory, or principle) after a mental effort
Synonyms: excogitate, ruminate, work, fake, prepare, make up, develop, contemplate, muse, get up, organize, fabricate, forge, plan, speculate, throw, cast, mull over, think over, form, mould, invent, word, manufacture, mull, explicate, reflect, fashion, articulate, spirt, cook up, organise, meditate, hammer, counterfeit, chew over, contrive, shape, phrase, ponder, spurt, give voice, formulate, project, design, machinate, devise, mold

or:

8. (verb) shape, form, work, mold, mould, forge
make something, usually for a specific function
Synonyms: spring, knead, turn, operate, act, shape, bring, model, excogitate, imprint, work out, run, spurt, function, put to work, organize, forge, lick, take form, solve, make, regulate, determine, figure out, cast, form, fake, mould, sour, invent, play, exploit, make for, spirt, go, take shape, fashion, do work, hammer, mold, organise, mildew, puzzle out, act upon, counterfeit, process, crop, work, ferment, influence, work on, constitute, formulate, wreak, cultivate, exercise, contrive, devise

To make it more internationa:

The German word for that is "Schmiede" (Schmied -w/o 'e'- is the blacksmith)

Google translates "Schmiede" to "Forging"
