I was going to say, "man, I just saw you a couple of days ago and you looked pretty good..." Smile

I haven't been here long enough to become attached to the "old" style, but still looking forward to the new!

Can't wait, got several pictures I want to post from my "new" layout with scenery. Also some wiring diagrams for electrical forum!

Barry B. does alot with the DCS forum, well now I find myself "hanging out" mostly at the electrical forum, though I doubt I am on par with Dale M. and other more knowledgeables, but hey its fun.

 

Thanks,

This change does cause reflection on the success here. It's brought together a diverse group of train collectors, operators, and builders. Every level of expertise...the members make the forum, but the environment made it happen. And the forum owners make the environment.
So thanks y'all.

We stand at the end of one era and the beginning of another. The end of that noble enterprise known as the OGR Forum. As we pass from this forum into the next, let us take some time to reflect on major events, such as:


  • Weekend Photo Fun.
  • Weekend Video Fun.
  • Mid-Week Haiku
  • The birth of the new sub-forums

    • 2-rail
    • 3RS
    • Scenery
    • Tinplate
    • S Gauge
    • Real Trains
    • DCS
    • TMCC
    • DCC
    • Buy-Sell-Trade
    • Announcements

  • Lastly, let's take time to think of forum member who have left us for that last run to the end of the line. Known to many by their handle alone; friends we've never met face to face, but friends nonetheless.


    May this next chapter be as rewarding as the previous.

    It is VERY unlikely that the new forum will be up and running in the early hours of the morning Eastern time.

    I do not anticipate having it back up until around noon EST. It depends on how smoothly the data migration goes and if there are any problems after the import.

    If at first you don't succeed, don't try sky diving... 

    I was a computer programmer for 25 years, and this only makes me recall all those projects when
    we "went live", took a deep breath, and waited for the phones to start ringing. I don't miss it.

    I was still working on January 1st, 2000, 12:01 AM. Fortunately we
    had done our jobs. Whew.

    Well if my 5am browsing will not be available, I will be to work much earlier!

    And its far better to do it right than to do it fast


    You must be and IT guy and not a business guy. EG.,

    IT guy to business guy - there will be a 4 hour downtime for maintenance

    Business guy - OK

    T+0 everthing is down

    T+10 minutes
    Business guy - how long is this going to take?
    IT guy - 4 hours
    Business guy - that is unacceptable - everything needs to be back up in 30 minutes MAX
    IT guy - not going to happen
    Business guy - and why not?
    IT guy - long drawn explanation that lost the business guy about 2 words in.
    Business guy - Yes but why does this take so long?
    IT guy - I need to get back to what I was doing or it will take even longer.
    T+20 minutes
    Repeat T+10 every 10 minutes
    T+4 hours
    Business guy - OK 4 hours are up, why is it not back up yet?
    IT guy - because you consumed 2 of my 4 hours annoying me with dumb*** questions.
    Business guy - So how long is it going to take now?
    Repeat T+10 minutes

    And yet they cannot fathom why this stuff takes so long and blame the IT guys for the delay.
