Iceteks forum migration

Almost 4 years later and I still have not done this. Honestly I will take the blame here, I just got lazy and kept putting it on the back burner. I really need to get this done.

I am really really hoping to have it done by Christmas this year. Yeah, I said that like 3 years ago. There is not really much work left to do, mostly I just need drill through and get it done, the test, test and test again. There's some things that are going to be different than a traditional forum, such as the use of a separate custom authentication system. There's also a few misc things such as uogateway that I want to tie in to that system. Basically I am creating a basic API for logins. So of course I need to take security in mind etc too. Not super complicated but still requires some thought and lot of testing.

I will be starting to build a shed whenever it's not raining, on the days that it's raining then I hope to put progress on the forum.

The basic foundation has been started.
