Re: my husband's passing this week

Oh Yolie, I'm so very sorry to hear of your husband's passing.

I send my thanks for his service, and my deepest sympathy to you as you cope with your loss.

Know that the members of this Forum will be thinking of you and looking forward to your return when you are ready.

My best,

Kate

Re: Website Redesign : poll ?

I've just seen that there's a poll about the best stunt in MacGyver ( MacGyverGod started the thread ). We couldn't vote before … is it possible now ? It would be great news concerning the website redesign ... AT LAST ! :) I haven't changed any settings. It's possible, if polls were not working bef...

Re: Website Redesign

Could be that the upload time is connected with the time of the video ? It could be, but it is probably more connected to the speed of your ISP. For me, the little "spinning circle" that shows the video is loading only appears for one or two seconds and then the video is ready to play, no matter ho...

Re: Website Redesign

If you are still considering YouTube, a copyright notice is not necessarily a bad thing and the copyright holder might place advertisements on the video. If the warning has a yellow triangle is also not bad thing but it will be muted or blocked, sometimes worldwide, sometimes only certain countries...

Re: Website Redesign

Thanks for the feedback. Only a few people responded, although it looks like a couple hundred checked out the sample link, and no one has reported any problems. The stats show a lot of "partial downloads." I'm hoping this does not indicate errors in loading but instead means that people checking the...

Re: Website Redesign

I'm still working on a solution for the Video Gallery. I think the "lightbox" feature (where the video "pops out" and opens on a black background overlay) is the main cause of the problem because the page has to basically load previews of all the videos. That not only slows down the loading of the p...

Re: Website Redesign

The Chat Room and Fan Mail should be working again. But I have to find a better solution for this site or I won't be able to maintain it. The first step is to find a host for the videos that won't lock up and won't add to my bandwidth. So I've started exploring YouTube again, although it's not ideal...

Re: Website Redesign

The Board Index button is working, but yes, the Chat Room is now down, as is the Fan Mail. I have informed my web host of the problems, but they have recently instituted a new procedure that charges me $150 every time they fix something, even when the problem was caused by THEIR update. It may be ne...

Re: Website Redesign

Yes, I know the Forum was down this morning. Actually, the whole site was down briefly last night as my ISP conducted a required upgrade. And that always screws up the Forum. This is a test to check if it is (hopefully) working again. But I may need to (once again) trash the whole thing and find a b...
