Re: It's time to pay our hosting bill again

Yes any contribution is welcome - however much you can afford.

Currency is unimportant too, It's no problem if you send in Pounds, $ or Euros.

Thanks to everyone who's contributed so far, we are about 40% of the way there already

It's time to pay our hosting bill again

It the time of year again where we need pay for the bill to host the forum. It's $215.46 and due in about a week - but don't panic, I'll pay for the moment. As usual send paypal donations to donations@gn15.info It's good to see we have a few new people interested in the forum - I prefer this format ...

Re: TrainsOnArran

Yes, sorry I was a bit slow - as I was telling Paul, I've had a series of minor accidents over the last few months, nothing serious, but enough to put me behind with other jobs, which has meant in turn the forum has got rather neglected. I need to bring the forum software up to date, hopefully that ...

Re: Is there a Mathematical Formula for Widening Gauge on Tight Curves ?

Here is a website that tells you how to calculate what will go round what curves - designed for model engineers, but same principles apply

Probably far too technical for most of us !

Re: How tight a plain circle??

Couplings are usually the limiting factor - it's the sideplay on these that limits the curve you can get round.

Sideplay is made worse the further the ends of the vehicle are from the wheels, so that is a factor too.

Fixing Photobucket

Good News - I think I worked out a technique to recover the Photos we have lost through Photobucket. Bad news - it's fairly labour intensive as it has to be done manually. It takes me about 1 hour to fix a page full. We may only have limited time too as Photobucket may block this. So two questions H...

Re: Photo hosting?

I'm busy with other things today but It appears the problem is because you have used https for the photos address and not just http. Not sure if the photo package is giving out the address as https - it shouldn't as I haven't bought a certificate for Gn15.info( we don't do money transactions that wo...

Re: Photo hosting?

This is a test installation of some software I'm looking at http://tbmod.com/g8

Would welcome any comments

user id = test

Password = test99

This version is free, but for some reason I can't get it to work on Gn15.info - there is a paying version which I am assured will work.

Re: Thank you, Photobucket !!!

My.gn15 uses The old forum user/password database as it's not compatible with the new forum software. So it 's frozen in time - OK for existing users, but there is no way to add new ones or change old ones.

This is why I am looking at new photo hosting software.

Re: Photo hosting?

Following on from that, I have been thinking about adding a replacement for my.gn15.info as the forum software stores photos in a way incompatible with some other forums - in particular the software used by RMWeb and NGRM-Online. I've been unable to find any free software that i'm happy has all the ...

Re: Photo hosting?

i'm quite happy for people to use Gn15.info to host picture and use them elsewhere - but yes it does increase bandwidth usage and one day might mean we have to pay more to support and host the forum. Two things - firstly that day is a long way away yet and secondly, as long as the pictures are reaso...

Re: Photo hosting?

No problem using it - apart from one month we are only using about 2% of available bandwidth.

But there are no new id's or password changes allowed so it's deprecated.

Is probably better to add as attachment, but this may not allow you to share to other sites if you also do that.

Just to say I'm getting messages from our hosting company that we have exceeded our bandwidth allocation. I've no idea why as we normally only use about 5% of it. I can't access my tools to check what is using the bandwidth as they are on the server and it won't let me use them because I've already ...
