  1. The BYYB site was basically abandoned and I was stuck with it because I provided the hosting for it. I continued to host it for several years, and still buy the domain name renewal every year, but had trouble finding the time to keep up the maintenance on it. So I turned it over to the Tapatalk people to keep the forums alive at least. No idea why you were "permanently banned" from there, but it might be some automatic thing the Tapatalk people do. Anyway, there are a few of us former BYYB people here!
  2. With all these really really old people around here I may need to add more ranks than just 14 of them! Or adjust the point values so there's some differentiation between all of us!
  3. Well, afraid to tell you that you have the highest rank, Grand Master, which means you must be very, very old! Like me!
  4. That's a new feature the software has. They indicated it would look at post count and time as a member, but obviously it didn't do that! I'll have to dig into the config and fix it! I don't want any of you thinking you're getting younger.
  5. It happens. I know Outlook and Hotmail email services are filtering out the registration confirmation email, and others may as well. This is sometimes done before it hits your inbox or spam folder, so you won't see it even if you search. If you are trying to register and don't receive the confirmation email please send an email to me at frank@acumenconsultingllc.com. Send it from the email address you registered with and I'll approve your registration manually. I apologize for the inconvenience. Spam filtering is inconsistent and this happens from time to time.
  6. The proof is in the pudding, as your boat held up very well. Weight is an issue for me too, so we will be going that route.
  7. Did you glass it as well as use epoxy? I read where a lot of builders have skipped glassing the hull and they hold up just fine (assuming marine grade plywood). My wife and I may start on my long delayed 10 this year.
  8. I follow a few cruisers on YouTube, and Sailing Florence Around the World uses a nesting dinghy instead of the inflatable kind most use. I thought it looked familiar, sure enough, they did an episode on their B&B Yacht Designs Spindrift that their father built for them right before they started their journey around the world:
  9. The forum software has an update to the interface. I have increased the contrast of the text from the default and increased the font sizes slightly. I think it is more readable now but want feedback. Let me know if you run into any problems with hard to see text, either due to color of the text. I have the main text at 16px now, and can increase it if needed. I can also install an alternate theme with larger text if some of you are still having problems reading it.
  10. It should be back and working now, Chick! I had a database corrupted.
  11. Website's up for me. If you are on a PC, go to the website in your browser and hold down CTRL and press F5 several times. In Safari use CMD-ALT-E to clear the cache. The local ISP might be caching the DNS results too, so check with them if it doesn't start resolving by tomorrow morning.
  12. Your website is back up now and the email should be working (or at least available for troubleshooting).
  13. Frank,  I'm trying to hit all available bases in getting my website back on line after being left out in the cold.

  14. Anyone have a better email or know how Tom is doing? He has a domain name registered with me for Blue Jacket Boats that has just expired, and we only have a few days to recover it at the regular renewal price.
  15. Have someone who is a family member email me at fshagan@gmail.com and I can do any of these things: 1. Suspend / cancel his account so no one can hack in as him. His posts would remain on the site 2. Delete his account. His posts would no longer be attributed to him, but would remain in the forum. 3. Delete his account and all his posts. In some cases this would require the deletion of threads if he started them. This removes his account and deletes all traces of his activity here.
