Hi all,

I have just finshed installing Members FileSwap. It will be in the next newsletter (Thursday I think) however I thought I would give you a heads up. FileSwap is designed to allow members to exchange utilities files and helpful documents such as was in a thread earlier today. It is NOT for marketing info, press releases or any non related stuff however if you have a utility or program that you think would be of interest or help to other members then please upload it. There is already an excellent 51 page camp oven usage and reciepe book (Thanks Mad Dog you found the new system) and a useful Camping checklist excel spreadsheet from Member - Cruisin (QLD) (loaded by me from thread 14217).

This system does not replace PlotSwap and PointPlace - please continue to load plotfiles and waypoint files in that system (for your credits). It is also not a replacement for the Trips & Gatherings system please load trips and reports via that system. We will monitor the files loaded and create subfolders as required.

So to get there either Members Menu - Member FileSwap or FileSwap Link.

Enjoy
David (DM) & Michelle (MM)

Thanks M. I was typing this post during the outage. I did not even know the server was rebooted till I had submitted the thread. I just hit submit as it came back. There are heaps if things I am doing on the system at present related to speed and reliabilty - in fact I am part way through a complete re-write of the enitre site (no small jab let me tell you) and I am also upgrading the 7 databases that run the site to new platforms. One of the DB was updated last Friday and another will hopefully be ready during this week and installed over the weekend. Busy busy however I liked the idea of the fileswap and I saw another post today so thought it was time and hey presto done.

Take care see you very soon....

3 medium sized camels
blah

cut camels into bite sized pieces
blah
blah
should serve 3800 people
if more are expected add 2 rabbits

Anyway, great work David

I think I have seen that one in Jack Absolom's Camp Oven book.
I wonder who's "stealing" from whom?:-))))

G'day David,
great work you are doing, thanks.

Here is an error report you may like to know about. When trying to upload photos to my Photo Gallery I receive a DB error message.

I'll try again in a few days,
Cheers,
mike

Yes it may well be - but due to work pressures there never seems to be enough hours in the day to get all the tasks done. Funny enough just as I published the fixed program an email arrived in my inbox from another member reporting the same problem. Interesting how it was broken since last Friday night and I get two reports several days later within about 5 mins of each other. Anyway better reported and fixed. Thanks.

David, I have had a quick cursory glance at this, and you have done well.

Would it be at all possible to perhaps give the relevant files their file type suffixes, ie:.... pdf txt doc and maybe........... the platform?

I run macs, and not all things will work for me.......... :(

Actually, better still.......... make the donor do this, and you can have a rest!

You have done good.........

G'day Lonewolf,
Not familar with Mac's however,try this.

Open Windows Explorer (also called File Manager), select the tools menu, then folder options, then click on the view tag. You will find a box marked "hide file extensions for known file types". If you click on the box so it is no longer ticked, the file extensions will display. Just reverse this if you want to hide them again.

That's what i did for mine

Wolfie,

The icons next to the name should goive you the clue to what the extension is, mind you I used the Microsoft windows icons which may be different to the Mac. However that should give you to clue to the file extensions. I do store the extensions on the system however I convert them to the icon which I thought looked better.

The platform well that is a little harder and some work/exel may work on both and other won't it is very difficult to determine a working platform unless someone loads it on that platform and then advise the system that i worked somehow. This could be an option in the future.
