  1. We're approaching our 47th in a month, so we got married just a year after you.
  2. Update Aug. 1, 2022 at 6 PM Pacific time: We have completed the move to the new server, with some configuration items still to be finished. Please let me know in this thread if you see anything odd! ____________________________________________________________________________________ Older message: We will have a planned maintenance window within the next few days. I'll update this post when the date and time is fixed. During that time the forums will be closed. messing-about has been growing and we are moving to a new server. We are doubling our RAM and bandwidth to accommodate the growth. The new server also has 50% more processing power, and will be using all SSD drives for storage. The result should be a faster experience for you. The server move will require the forums to be paused, with no new posts allowed during the transfer time. This will take several hours due to the size of the forums, but should be completed within 24 hours once started. I want to thank all of the Supporting Members for helping make this move possible. Their support has been crucial to keeping messing-about online!
  3. Tom renewed his domain with me this past May, so he was still active at that time. And it looks like his site is still up.
  4. Supporting Members now have access to RSS feeds of the Forums! Look in the lower right to subscribe using your favorite RSS reader.
  5. It was a database that crashed. Sorry it took a while to fix!
  6. 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!
  7. 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!
  8. Well, afraid to tell you that you have the highest rank, Grand Master, which means you must be very, very old! Like me!
  9. 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.
  10. UPDATE 1/5/2022 - I upgraded to sending email via SendGrid instead of this server, so that should allow better deliverability. Please let me know if this works better for your subscription notices, etc. If you are trying to register and don't receive the confirmation email please send an email to me at frank@acumenconsultingcompany.com. Send it from the email address you registered with and I'll approve your registration manually. 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. I apologize for the inconvenience. Spam filtering is inconsistent and this happens from time to time.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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:
  14. 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.
  15. It should be back and working now, Chick! I had a database corrupted.
  16. 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.
  17. Your website is back up now and the email should be working (or at least available for troubleshooting).
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. OK, I changed your TarDevil login to use the new email address. I sent you an email. If you don't get the reminder email for a new password let me know via email at fshagan@gmail.com and I can set a new, temporary password on that TarDevil account.
  21. Yes, let me change the email address to your current one you gave in this profile.
  22. Thanks, Dave! I know you guys don't mind when things have to be done, but I always hate miscalculating how long it takes to complete it!
  23. Yes, it took a lot longer than I expected! Sorry about that. But it's good to be back on line!
  24. When you upload an image, you can later insert it between text: By positioning your cursor where you want to insert the image and then clicking the image. Here's a short video showing it: http://screenshot.ontrapedia.com/public/fhagan/194f95df-cbe6-412d-a7a2-2002d9cb37431574174805.mp4
  25. Welcome! I've upgraded your membership to Supporting Member status. You shouldn't see any ads for the next year, and can create Galleries or Clubs from the tabs at the top of the page. People love to follow a build thread so when you get started go ahead and start one for your boat. Thanks for joining!
