  • CathInfo wasn't allowing PMs until I fixed it just now.

    It was a small database field issue, which arose after I moved the database here to the new server. It's fixed now though.

    That's because your account is only 1 day old.

  • Well, it may be "fixed," but --perhaps due to the fairly recent server meltdown-- I have lost most of my previous PM's, and I am very upset by that because they had links in them which I was counting on keeping.

    Sorry about that --

    I've tried to tell the membership on many occasions that I can't promise you Gmail's 1 GB of storage (to keep a large portion of your important documents -- in short, your digital life -- on my server)

    I had to focus on the things I can actually get traffic from -- like posts and topics.

    But all that is in the past now, because now that I have my own server, I no longer have to worry about database size or anything like that. I don't plan on trimming any databases going forward.

    Well, there's deja vu for you!

    Uh, huh.  I said some things a lot like that when I bought & installed my first hard drive: a princely 42-megabyte Seagate ST251
    • , for only $309 retail, plus tax, in Silicon Valley.  Could've been ~60 MB if I'd trusted the available RLL encoding, but back then it was considered less reliable--thus riskier--than MFM.  It didn't take all that long for me to fill up the drive(s), causing unplanned "archiving" of data & programs to floppy disks, so as to increase available space for day-to-day usage.

      It doesn't qualify technically as nostalgia, because I'm quite pleased that the technology progressed past the manual configuration requirements of PC/MS-DOS days, esp. the installation delay caused by evaluating specific interrupt numbers, choosing them, and setting them.

      -------
      Note *: Somewhere around here I've still got its hard-copy QA sheet
    • in fading dot-matrix ink: Seagate ST251-0 or -1 (1 of each), 12 errors, "03/19/90", seek times 40 ms. and 28 ms., respectively.  I still have them in the expansion box in which they're installed, altho' their data has long since been copied to newer drives; that written, I wonder: Would they still power up?
