StratosVX, I sent you a PM.

I wanted to use your image for the battle Masters map, but the file is way too large for me to open on my winxp 32bit system. Can you upload a smaller version maybe about 26mb in size instead of 266mb? My Adobe says it cant parse the jpeg file and a jpeg viewer said I did not have enough memory. I have 3gb of memory but its not enough for this file, even online converters couldn't open it so I don't know if something is wrong with the file or if its just too big.

Thanks

Old and outdated (but not busted) works for me!

It's true that drathe would have to move everything—but when he's got time to even look at it, there's help at the ready to write a tool to do the moving.

Additionally, apparently drathe's server resources are somewhat limited. We might need to do something about that at some point.

But as Facebook routinely bans people for anything (or nothing), I won't be using it. Technically I wasn't "banned". My account was just modified by a malicious employee who deleted everything I ever posted, then locked my account to prohibit posting new content (without any accompanying "guideline strike" or anything) without warning, without explanation, and without appeal.

So as far as I'm concerned, Facebook can get Zucked.

Do you know how to do this kind of stuff? And do you have a week to spare?

Define "this kind of stuff". I've written software in PHP, the language this forum is written in. More wordpress or custom stuff than phpBB directly, but if you give me an API, yeah. I have to remind myself of MySQL syntax because MySQL, Postgres, and sqlite all have slightly different syntax and I don't use any of them so frequently that I remember their specific idiosyncrasies, but I usually remember the basic query language stuff that's common to all of them, which is a lot.

And I'm a legally blind cancer patient who's quite unemployed at this point largely because my chemo side-effects make my ability to be useful on a specific schedule necessary for an office environment kind of variable. Which leaves me a lot of basically "free" time to poke at anything of interest, as long as I can say, "oww, yeah, for the next hour, I'm not getting much done", and picking it up later in the day than intended.

No promises that'll continue indefinitely since when these side-effect subside, I intend to try and find new employment, because a crusty old Linux geek/developer with backgrounds in interface design, databases, device drivers, web apps, technical and end-user writing, and Linux distribution packaging can probably earn a fair bit more than I receive in disability. And, I'd have something to do besides vegging in front of YouTube. :P

I feel with you there, man, I had my chemo 2018 and I was just sleeping all day long; couldn't help myself.
When I was awake I tried to get the HQ25 project of this forum forward, but couldn't finish it in time; because despite what people say, chemo is a schedule and it fills the time (with sleep).

Well, that would be great news! Now we need to reach out to drathe somehow and convince him that someone could help him.

If I understand your last post, I should remind drathe of iKarith's offer. Great suggestion! I have in fact reminded him recently. But maybe someone should remind me to remind him again sometime.

But what kind of direction you would like to move? Just to update the forum platform or something else?
