Re: sunday night chat

At some point I will look at getting chat working again. There is an XMPP server running on the same server as the forum, I just need to work out how to connect the two again.

Re: Learning to weld

Finished the MIG course. We were given some 6mm (1/4 ") plate to play with, which I found more enjoyable, probably because it was easier to weld. We only used mild steel on the MIG course, and went through open corner, butt, butt with gap, lap, fillet, pipe, vertical up, and over head welds. Last ni...

Re: Learning to weld

It is still so new to me, that things are still pretty hit and miss. But it is starting to sink in. And yes Jack, it is fun. I've only done one night on Aluminium and one night on stainless steel so far (TIG only), so should get one more night on each of those. Two nights of MIG and three nights of ...

Learning to weld

For years, I have wanted to learn how to weld. Four weeks ago I started a five week night school class. Two nights per week of TIG and two nights MIG. https://stuartcrawford.co.nz/images/welding.jpg TIG corner weld mild steel https://stuartcrawford.co.nz/images/corner-tig-weld-mild-steel.jpg MIG fil...

Getting things done

The title of this topic is somewhat backward, in that the result of a search has ended here, not that the search started here. Going back a few years, when I had a preoccupation for learning how to set up web sites. I was using what are called dynamic websites (this forum is such a one). What a dyna...

Re: Covid-19

I'll go first. Here in New Zealand, we went onto a war footing, as a country when we went into lock down in March. As I work in a container terminal (Ships), we are regarded as an essential service. As such, the government ordered us to work through, whilst at the same time developing a different wo...

Covid-19

I think it's time that the forum had a place for this topic. Early on in the pandemic I saw a piece with a psychologist who said that in time, they would be able to put the P at the beginning of traumatic stress disorder (P.T.S.D). This is fitting, because society as a whole is being subjected to a ...

Re: posting pictures

Jack, software is now up to date. While your new pictures are not showing (Maybe to do with the picture host) the links are clickable to the pictures.

Re: posting pictures

Sorry for the slow response, I haven't checked in for a long time. Not certain what the problem is. However, I do know that the forum software is no longer compatible with the servers' operating system anymore. Specifically the server has the current version of PHP (computer language) installed, whi...

Re: MrSharkey.com

The errors are because the server is running a new version of PHP, which is incompatible with the forum software. They will persist until such time as a new version of the software is released, that is compatible with the server PHP version.

Re: Dusty's Bus

First I have seen of the tinypic problem, so don't know what has happened there.
The forum is also having technical difficulties (unrelated) which may persist for awhile. Awaiting a new software release to fix, so don't know when.

Re: Forum not accessible

Upon further investigation, I have found that it is currently not feasible to fix the current technical issues with the forum. Unfortunately it looks like the functioning is compromised in way way of speed and possibly other issues as well. At this stage it looks like, this is as good as its going t...

Actually it looks like there are still some problems. Don't know when they will be fixed yet.
