Database Progress

| October 29, 2014

I’ve been telling you about working on the databases which will be serving up most of the content for this site.  A relative who runs a successful web hosting company has been helping me with some aspects of the site and databases. It’s still growing but at this time, there are: 14 databases containing a […]

Our Forum

| October 23, 2014

You may have noticed that the FORUM that was there, isn’t any more.  It’s been replaced by a “coming soon” page.  The old one was troubled and we had a hard time keeping SPAMMERs from submitting 100+ fake posts per day.  These never made it to the FORUM because approval was turned on but it […]

Content Work

| October 20, 2014

This site started out as static, hand-coded pages using templates developed by myself.  Since then the scope has grown to a point where it would be impossible to keep up or produce the number of pages needed manually. We are working on several databases to deliver “dynamic content”.  Some of them are small and some […]

If you notice that menus and features are not working, it’s probably because those are still using “Active-X” and your browser defaults to “active content – off”.  The current menus/features use some “active-x” or “active content”. You can enable active content through your web browser or you will have to wait for the updates to […]

I have done an “about face” on my decision not to run ads.  The decision was made in part due to my schedule, never having the time to dedicate 100% and the shear work load that I laid-out for this site has caused unacceptable delays in my opinion.  As a consequence I have brought in […]

Changes to menus and messages

| October 15, 2014

Most of the work we’re currently doing is behind the scenes. However, you may notice some minor changes. The entrance to this BLOG, which you must have found since you’re reading this, has been moved from the accordion menu on the right to the top menu bar. Menus that we’re down below have started migrating […]

Great things are happening!

| October 6, 2014

Keep an eye on the site… I have a renewed effort afoot to get this site flying.  I am currently working with someone who can help with the design and development of the databases to drive much of the site. Several major changes are currently being planned and developed. Among the changes will be improved […]

Talk about a run of bad luck!

| August 18, 2013

First, my hosting company loses its mind and I had to move everything… then right after I get the hosting files moved and in the process of setting everything back up…  my home server lost its mind too!  I have a server running a software RAID with 6.5 TB of storage ‘of sorts via WHS’.  As […]

A Painful Transition

| July 21, 2013

Well, I’ve moved to a new host and this was 3.5-weeks long and painful, let’s not do this again!   Moving a site from one host to another “sounds” easy but it’s really not as simple as uploading the site to a new location.  There are a lot of configuration, version or other changes and updates that […]

The move to a new host…

| July 21, 2013

After struggeling with problems since mid May, I gave up and asked my previous hosting company to cancel my account effective immediately. The reason is that has slowly degraded.  Lately we’ve been fighting being blocked by all the major ISPs and spam block lists (Verizon, ComCast, SpamHaus/CBL, etc).  The IPs assigned to IMHosted have […]
