Title: Soviet Warplanes site future
Post by: JP on June 27, 2015, 09:05:48 PM
Gents,

A short note which may be of interest to you all.  My long, personal disaster appears to be drawing to a close, and while I lost a great deal over the last few years, things are beginning to stabilize.  I think I can safely say that the future of this site is now very safe.

That doesn't mean we won't be looking for more cost-effective hosting solutions based on what we actually use (bluehost has evolved into a full-service merchant-style ho$t), but the domain is safe and ours to do with as we please.

Who knows, I might even attempt to reconstruct my modeling bench and get back to work on some plastic bits.

Carry on.   :)

JP

Welcome back, JP. I hope that you'll restart to follow the site and the modelism. A new workbench will be a great step.
Regards
Massimo

Well, unlike most men that I've known in my position, I'm glad I did not panic and preemptively dump all my kits I've collected all these years.  Having watched a few guys go through this, every one of them regretted it once they were "free" and realized it was an unnecessary move and now all their kits were gone for pennies on the dollar.  So, I have all my kits and am still above water.  I have a desk of sorts.  The problem is all the small bits that got scattered in move after move after move during this overly-long process.  I'd even re-purchased a basic stock of tools/supplies at one point, but now that stuff is literally all over and I'm having a hell of a time getting it all in one place.  In time, though, I will.

More importantly from a personal perspective, the depression that haunted me for so long during this, and which completely killed any urge to sit and work on anything, seems to have lifted and my interest in things like this is returning.

See you guys soon.

Hi JP,
so you could organize a compact and easy to move laboratory for your needs.

Great news that the site is safe, especially for the stash of VVS subjects that I would like to build !

Cheers

JP,

I'm glad that you're better and the depression is behind you.
Time to think of more pleasant things to do !!!

All the very best.

Welcome back, JP!
People like us, accustomed to rebuild a lost propeller blade or make a scratched canopy shine again, can get rid of any trouble!  ;)

so , now that you are back does that mean it is time to get more models into the gallery? ;D
I have been going into old photo CD's for things that did not get posted to another website and could now be added here.
some of these models were completed and photographed as far back as 2005 !

also , what is the correct method for contact?
I do not have the same email address that I had back then and I am guessing you probably don't either.

The one in the new forum accounts thread is still valid.

just sent you a test email called "Email test"  :)

Hi,
the year is ending again and I haven't had recent contacts with JP Myers, so I can't assure that this domain will be renewed. I hope so, but I know that JP has problems with his family and hasn't answered to my mails till now.
I've asked the help of Jasu Terava to backup this forum and to update the copy at http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanestest/board/index.php (http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanestest/board/index.php), we'll do this around the mid of December as we did the last year.
The clone site http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanestest/mig3.sovietwarplanes/ (http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanestest/mig3.sovietwarplanes/) will be updated too, in case.
Regards
Massimo

Hi,
I've updated the clone site at http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanestest/mig3.sovietwarplanes/ (http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanestest/mig3.sovietwarplanes/) and now it is at pair with the original one. The latest page added is a collection of profiles and photos of Soviet Tu-2 by Misos, completing his page on this subject.
The clone forum http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanestest/board/index.php (http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanestest/board/index.php) was updated with all the posts up to December 16, 2015. Subcessive posts will eventually have to be copied and posted manually by their authors.
Please, all of you check if you can find, enter and post on the backup forum.
I would thank Jasu Terava for his assistance in the move of the forum.
Have an happy Xmas.
Massimo

Hi,
we're working to change the name of the directories and make the path shorter. I'll give the new link as soon as it will be functioning.
Regards
Massimo

Hi,
the new link to the forum is http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/board/index.php (http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/board/index.php), and the site is http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/pages/ (http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/pages/).
 This should be definitive, please bookmark it. Please wait 1-2 days to post on the forum, we have to correct the old links to the existing mig3.sovietwarplanes site replacing with links to the new site.
Regards
Massimo

Hi,

Hi Massimo,
seem this old forum works OK again. Should we continue on this forum, or move on that new one (new web address in your mail above)?
IMHO to continue on two forums in parallel is not very practical.
Best regards,

Hi Misos,
let's continue here. Anyway I keep ready the other one for any problem.

I got in!!!!!!

I was trying to fix the issue with the forum from the external side, which is way harder (for me).  It's easier when it's up, so I'll take a crack at maintenance while it's working for us!

In the meantime, join the Facebook page.  https://www.facebook.com/groups/139539839456816/ (https://www.facebook.com/groups/139539839456816/)

FB have a way more robust IT department and you can get real time news, and honestly, there are some very robust and active modeling groups there.

All patches and upgrades for the forum have been installed and we are running the current version.  What I can tell you from having been working this from the other side (and locked out of this forum) is that the database was never at risk - it appears to have been the interface with the forum software.  In any case, I have made a complete backup of this forum just now.

Hopefully the stability issues will subside with the patching.

Hi all,
the update of all the posts of 2016 was done.
this has deleted all the posts made in the last days, so, please, if you posted anything important, please repost again.
It seems that things functin in acceptable way. Probably all the links to the old  sovietwarplanes site are broken, eventually they could be ripristinated manually:
I can't see the icons, I'll try to remedy but we can convive with this, I think.

Massimo
