Hmm....
Well, my upgrade to a new version of Ubuntu was mostly successful...

My tabs are weird in scripts so I'm going to try to manually post the latest
newsletter here and hatch out the archive.. Kind of a bummer, but it 8:20PM..

I probably just need to work on it in the morning Smile

Take care,
Janis

Heh... Ron runs Windows so yeah I guess he did do an upgrade recently.

Tomorrow Ron & I are going to attack this new box I have sitting here. He
offered to help, I said definitely Smile

So... <<Prism will probably be down for a bit, but it has to be done.

They originally just did the update on the second Tuesday, but now, they
do more than that.

Weather has kept me offline for quite a bit. We've had tornadoes and
severe flooding in the state in the last several days. And, I saw tonight
that one of the forecast models is bringing a hurricane to southeast
Texas late next week. When I see the other models latch onto it, I'll be
concerned. But, I've seen so many model runs where it's talking about a
massive hurricane, tornado outbreak, winter storm, etc. on one run...and
on the next model run, it's gone.

Daryl

... You have my 2 cents worth. Now, can I have my change??

Yeah, it seems necessary changes are coming fast and furious for people's
systems. That's good.

I try to trust the weather-boys... because you know, the day I figure "it won't
happen", it WILL Sad

Well, we are still waking up, drinking coffee over here (it's 10:28AM) but we
will attach the 'hardware' monster in a short while.. eek.

Yep. The only "true forecast" is the tagline below.

I drink a quart or two of diet green tea citrus a day. Doing that, and
no longer drinking soda pop, I haven't had any kidney stones.

That's good.

Ok, the bbs is running fine in fidonet, but I still haven't had much success
with the webserver..

I'm taking my time.. if you see anyone ask, you can tell 'em for me.. Smile

Since I updated to Kim's new release of Toy-5 I've not had trouble with the
webserver. I am replying now from the web interface. Smile

My setup is not complicated though. I have no extras at all, just BBBS
answering with it's own web bbs presence.

Whatever the issue happens to be I hope you can get that resolved without too
much trouble.

JK> That's good.

One woman said that she'd rather have quintuplets, in hard labor, with
no epidural, than one kidney stone. That pretty much sums it up. Another
woman said "If us women can pass a baby, you men can pass a kidney stone".
I told her "Unlike the female cervix, the male penis can't dialate".

I'm not sure if it's my browser or web settings over here...but when
I click on Connect Via Telnet, it just sits there. I do have an external
FTelent Link at https://www.theweatherwonder.com/bbsftlnt.htm for the BBS.

Is that on the prism bbs website?

I notice the same thing on my own. The link points to the correct hostname but
my BBS is on a different port so it doesn't work here either.

I'll have to figure out a solution to that.

The web server at filegate is down right now.. once in a while in the last day
or so, when I try something new with it, I give it a try... so far no luck
though... Sad

up..

No, that's on my BBS website. I should've been clearer...sorry. I

One of my members said you were back up. So just now i tried connecting to the
filegate.net and it was down. I've moved my feed to Eric Renfro, 1:135/300 so
you can remove me from your ststem config.

Hope everything else is going well on your end.

Ha - not so much Smile

It's amazing the things one forgets because one set up this and that batch file
or script so loooong ago Sad For instance, I _think_ today I got most of the
web pages at filegate.net working again.

I'm getting there, though it is a pain in the butt <g>

Will do, glad you found a good feed Smile I did put the old system back up for a
while, but it was only so that I could copy all the file echo areas to the new
system.

I'm sometimes amazed at the the files that still need to be updated over here..

But at least I'm getting there... Smile
