Forum converted

The forum has been converted to the latest version. Some items (like the gallery) are not working, but I will work with support to fix that. Anyway, I will be setting up the permissions for new members and opening up the forum soon. Maybe this weekend. I'll just have to look at the new forum settings first. I did a major jump in versions so everything is different and I may need to add back or in some new features.

Stay tuned!

P.S. I finally started cleaning up the forums as well. If you were a member in the past, but hadn't posted... well you're no longer a member. That brought the member counts waaay down. But now I have a realistic ideal who actually contributed to the site.

No cigar

Well, the videos aren't all quite working so I need to reencode them. I'll add that to the list of things that need to be done.

Also, I put in the request to get my forum updated. Hopefully that will occur in a day or two. Just keep an eye on the main site for more information. I added a few new forums in preparation, but you can check out my plans for more information.

Anyway, I'd better be heading to the gym. A better body doesn't just grow itself!

A little more content

I added back the links to some videos on the site from my midwest trip and updated my blog.

I still have quite a few pictures to post, including stuff for another section I call "Geek Corner". This section will have computer articles and a few tips, since this is what I do for a hobby and a living. My first article will be on building a new computer. You know it's not that difficult these days to build a much better computer than what you could buy in a store. So I'll walk you through building one, short of installing the operating system. I did two installs including one for Mac OS X Leopard... yep you heard me--I installed the Mac OS from a spare license I bought before my laptop died. I'm looking to try to put that up this weekend.

I do have to snap a few pictures for this weekend's project: upgrading my mac mini. We're adding memory, a new dvd burner and wireless 802.11N networking to it. It will almost be like a new computer! Eventually I may upgrade the processor, but I figure I'd better save that money to go to europe... $100 cpu = 65 Euros... That's a few meals, a night in a cheap hotel or a few drinks in a pub!

Site is now operational

Finally, after months the site is now up. There are a few things missing, but I was more concerned about getting the main shell up than making sure everything is functional.

Take a look around the site and let me know what you think!
