Re: Occasional difficulties accessing the forum site - Any experts out there?

SP, I'm not getting that problem with "Latest". Where does it take you? (Bloody IT stuff! :) ) Just got your email. I think what is happening there with your browser saying your connection is not private when you click on Latest is that the code is drawing a font from a content delivery network (ht...

Re: Occasional difficulties accessing the forum site - Any experts out there?

Thanks ShorePoints and also mally and Scott for first alerting me to the problem. NME managed to fix it yesterday and it wasn't an easy one. I'm hopefully catching up with NME next week to run through a plan of compartmentalising the IT areas as they are far too much for one person to manage especia...

Re: Farewell 2017 and Welcome 2018

ShorePoints : A potato masher is a must so no harm done there. I'm not going to ask what an Arduino is otherwise I'll probably buy one :) mally : Lol. As I was waiting, I was tempted to write stuff like, "Can you hold on a second? My baby is crying and I need to give it more whisky." But, there was...

Farewell 2017 and Welcome 2018

[Before posting here, please make sure you have read How to Help Us Ferk Up 2018 .] Happy New Year to You All :salute: Traditionally, I try to bring in the new year by doing some or all of the following: attempt to pass on my gratitude to members here who serve others so diligently, review the last ...

Ferking Up 2018

I thought that might get your attention :P This is an important year, one that is going to mainly rely on you! So, before we go any further... Subscibe.jpg Ferking up basically means to "move things forward." Whilst I now know what you can all do to help ferk up 2018, I still need a week or two to w...

Re: BIABacus Pre-Release - Your First Impressions

Much appreciated Brian :peace: If you enjoyed my last post, you can thank Microsoft. I've had a mind-numbing week dealing with re-installs etc. Lost a lot of time there so am about to throw up a new "skin" for you. Would have liked to have done a lot more testing first but c'est la vie. New skin in ...

Re: BIABacus Pre-Release - Your First Impressions

[EDIT: I've dealt with your actual question in the PS :)] Hello Joel and great to hear from you :peace:! All's well thanks - since last hearing from you, I'm definitely older, wiser :P and $50k poorer :angry:. I haven't lost my enthusiasm though ;). Spent a lot of 2016 and early 2017 working full-ti...

Re: New Skin coming in a few days.

Update* - Gold members caught a few bugs on the beta site. Just one left to solve. - Solving the above and installing new software took up the week window of time I had available. - I'd like to re-write the intro part of the site for the new temporary skin. I'll try to do that before... - Next unbr...

New Skin coming in a few days.

Just heading in to another marathon run of site development. While that is happening, in a few days, we'll give you a much nicer skin to work with. I'll keep you posted ;) Pat Gold Members Only If you go to the beta site, you should be able to see all the sections in the pic below. You must log in t...

Re: Writing guides

Great post Nick - intelligent, realistic thoughts there, not negativity or pessimism. It's a good thing we like to take on the impossible :) As for the diagram, I have quite a few more that investigate all the different relationships. Doing that sometimes help me to find some "missing links." Nice o...

Re: Writing guides

[Inconceivable: Have sent you my email.] I haven't done any sort of update for some time on the new site structure. This thread is probably an opportunity for me to give you an idea of what I'm currently working on behind the scenes. To cut a long story short, I'm basically using a very structured t...

Re: Writing guides

Nick, apologies for the delay. Rather than tie everyone up here with my thoughts, could you send me your guide? That way I can check / offer suggestions before "publishing" and then find the best place to do so. Once things are published, they become almost impossible to correct. I know this from pe...

Re: Writing guides

Nick, I've started writing an essay here as it is such a good question. However, I've saved what I have written so far as I've been going for about 18 hours straight now and think I'll be able to write much more "efficiently" tomorrow :) Also quickly read your other post. Many thanks to you :salute:

Re: The BIPs Thread

Nick, many thanks for the above :salute: Totally valid points too. It's not that 11.9% beer talking :lol: The idea of the BIABrewer.info Point System is to add a little recognition to those who contribute to the site, whether it be through content, labour, activity or financial contributions. Like m...

Re: If You Are Having Strange Problems Registering or Logging In

Think I had a bit of fuel on board writing that last post :). Finished a 3 week job with very long hours on Friday so, after weekend of sleep and relaxing, I'm back in form now. Simon reckons he's going to have some time late September to help out so that's brilliant :champ:. He can often fix someth...

Re: If You Are Having Strange Problems Registering or Logging In

Does anyone have any insights into the following? There are at least four websites I've come across recently that don't work with Google Chrome when it comes to filling in a form. One of these is even a major Australian government website. Sarah and I, using different IP's and computers, both had th...
