Cool Let the word go forth...

Let the word go forth... to each and every Colony of Man (and Woman! And LGBT, and, well, everyone!)... The Gallery and Downloads are back up and running.

But before I get into that, I want to send you my hopes and positive thoughts during these troubling times. Regardless of your political affiliation or beliefs, we're all in this together on this tiny spec in the Universe. Be safe and cautious. Do not give in to fear and doubt. For those who outright lost jobs, I feel for you. Truly. Things WILL turn around, but it's going to take time. For those that got furloughed, I also hope things are working out ok for you. Hopefully unemployment is available to all of you needing it. I have been fortunate working at the Casino - we're still getting paid even though we're closed/not working during this time.

If you haven't yet, please read this link, then come back here.

I had posted on the front page about looking for alternatives to the Forums script as well as the Gallery/Downloads script, due to the hosting service going to the current PHP7. The scripts don't run on that. Or so I thought. After some tweaking on them, I got the Forums to actually run on PHP7.2, which should be fine for a while. The Gallery/Downloads script, however, needed some major work.

After looking into alternatives, I just could not find anything that met what I wanted them to do. Plus transferring all of the files into a new script would be a major hassle.

Since I have been off work the last few weeks due to the pandemic, I have had time to dig into the scripts. And guess what? I found I *could* get it running on PHP7.2. So it is done - The Gallery and Forums are back!

The Gallery has a couple of new things I added as well - Videos from YouTube and the like can now be posted there, and on Images, when you click on the Preview, the larger version pops up.

And I added a few brand new renders I did during this time off. I won't go into the PC issues I have also had that caused me to not be able to do any website work as well as 3D Art, but if you're connected with me on FaceBook, you've seen my bitching and moaning about that!

Please let everyone you can think of that Fleets is open, and ask them to stop by.

And once again, BE SAFE, EVERYONE!

Domain and server service updated for another year, so no worries about the site disappearing again due to that

Thank you, Darrell. Your efforts are very appreciated.
While I don't visit as often as I would like to (RL stuff), I do find solace when I do visit here. This site is like "visiting home for the holidays", as it were.
And Happy 42nd Birthday, Galactica. (...Lord I feel old now...)

I wasn't able to watch the 3-hour premiere yesterday but listened to the soundtrack. Had to "commemorate" 9/17 in some way.

I was at work this morning and signed for a package from a vendor delivery. And then it hit me....
As I wrote the date, I realized it was the Battlestar Galactica Anniversary today!
WOW! Time flies... Happy 43rd Big G! I raise a chalice to all who are here to celebrate.

Steve,

Earlier today, I was thinking about what my wife and I could watch tonight and had that same type of "moment".

Well, that answered the question and, after dinner, we watched Saga of A Star World!



Happy 43rd Birthday, Battlestar Galactica!!!

Yes Pete. I also partook of the DVD festivities the evening of the 17th.
I was on my overnight at moms this weekend. I always carry my trusty travel DVD set with me and was prepared.
Thoroughly enjoyed the night.

Unfortunately, I was unable to watch an episode of BSG for the anniversary, but I did listen to the theme song several times and remembered sitting in my living room in 1978 as a 10 year old kid getting ready to change my life forever!

Happy Anniversary, BSG!!
