Pas de problème, mes amis!

AC, all archived threads that were on Sigi's server are backed up. I haven't gotten everything uploaded yet, but I will. I changed the Mote Archive link so it points to my server now and I'll get what I just finished collecting uploaded asap.

Meanwhile, using our Mote maintenance page, I deleted everything in the archive, so Sigi's box should be clear of that now.

While I'm at it, we don't seem to use the Inferno anymore - anyone object to me archiving that thread?

3302. judithathome - 1/18/2014 7:14:09 PM

Maybe we've all matured enough that we don't NEED it any longer...heh.

3303. wabbit - 1/18/2014 7:33:09 PM

LOL, my thoughts exactly.

Geez Louise, it's snowing again.

Back to Mote Matters, I've also collected the pages that we link to from the front page that don't *need* to be on Sigi's server, aka HTML Hints, RoE, FAQs and the Interface explanation. Links are updated and the pages are on my server, so if anyone finds a broken link or a mistake, please let me know, I can change them now. Archive is up to date. Next I'll get the live threads archived...but maybe not today.

Archiving is done for everything except the Cafe (which I've never archived).

I asked our generous server provider to make us a PayPal button so folks could donate some money. I can't post the darn thing because it's a form, so I've made a link to it at the top of the front page, right-hand column. The link takes you to a page on the server that has the PayPal button, with which you can send a donation to Sigi to help defray our bandwidth costs (about $500NZ last year). Anything anyone can contribute will be most appreciated!

Having problems with PayPal over at my forum, which is pay-to-play...if this IS set up for donations here, just found out you need cookies enabled in order to use PayPal, at least that is the case at my forum.

No big deal and probably getting ahead of myself but that issue just arose over there so thought I'd mention it.

Just saw Support the Mote! I trust that my pittance now transmuted into $NZ will not wind up in some kinky Kiwi site...at least one I can't access.

3307. wabbit - 3/20/2016 3:14:41 PM

Hey AC, what's up with the site? We have been down many times in the last week or so.

3308. wabbit - 4/8/2016 8:47:34 PM

AC, please check your email.

3309. alistairconnor - 4/11/2016 5:18:06 PM

Hey Wab! Sorry to be slow. I'll check with our host Sigi about hosting issues.... what's actually been happening? Long periods of down-ness?

3310. alistairconnor - 4/11/2016 5:23:06 PM

Arky, I'm completely with you about Google pervasiveness. I don't log in when I use Chrome, I try to keep identities separate, and still they go bigdata on my ass and propose unnerving correlations that they shouldn't be knowing about.

Ah well. It's not that I've actually got anything to hide. So I've got nothing to fear eh... yeah nah.

3311. arkymalarky - 4/11/2016 6:24:06 PM

I don't either, except my banking, my job stuff Which includes all kinds of stuff the state of ar requires that I don't trust them with, my fam, my life, my credit cards....

3312. Ms. No - 4/12/2016 7:12:31 PM

Hi AC,

Yeah, lots and lots of down-ness over the last three weeks or so.

Re:Big Data

I'm tired of being marketed to. I'm weary unto-death of consumerism and advertising to consumers. Bleh. Makes me want to go live in the woods.

3313. arkymalarky - 4/12/2016 11:18:24 PM

I don't like that my phone world is my Google world(s), and none of it seems to be secure from anything except the government apparently. Companies to me seem to be far too Cavalier about how they handle personal data, and Google et al are far too Cavalier about what they allow companies to access. If the government wants to hack into a phone, they should build a two bit app like Crossy Road and ask for any permission they think they need. And I really don't think Apple is any better. It's part of the reason that I made my phone my Blackberry, though I still use my Droid for everything except call and text.

3314. wabbit - 6/4/2016 9:55:17 PM

AC, *please* email me.

3315. judithathome - 6/8/2016 8:35:08 PM

Yes, please do....I am willing to donate money IF I can get in here more than once every two weeks.
