Had a mate try to register and struck problems registering.

What is happening or not happening?

It is a software problem John. They need Jacob to do some upgrade so people can register themselves as previously

Meanwhile Vinno has to arrange their setups.

I have recently done requests for 3 our our own new guys - Richard, Rod and Paul, and a couple of others requested which VInno has set up.

I have just put Wingman through to him.

Probably heaps have tried but the upgrade drags on. Hopefully it will be up soon, we have a test one up.

Just an idea, but maybe post a sticky with an email address for newcomers to make contact with in order to establish a new membership request?

I will see if we can get an Auslot email working so it sends out to us. Adding a personal email on a forum might not be a good idea. Will come back on this.

Yes, I didn't mean to use a personal or important email address, since its going to end up full of all sorts of useless junk, possibly malicious. Better play it safe!

Just to update all, Vince, Jacob and I have been looking at a software upgrade which hopefully would resolve the current problem.
In attempting to complete the upgrade we ran into problems with upgrading the SQL Datebase. We have been unable to update it using system tools and the suggestion was to try and update it from the Command Line .

Jacob is looking at installing a copy of the database off line on a local pc however as with all things it is not this simple you need to also install a copy of the Web Server to simulate production.

Apologises for the time it has taken but it is a bit of one step forward and then we find another problem to deal with.

After seeing all the issues two other Forums have had with upgrades it is great that you guys are taking your time to try and get it right.
Thanks.

As an old school broadcast tech I totally appreciate this. A bit of caution saves a station from going off air, same for a forum it seems.

Well thanks for bringing this up again.

Phil didnt look back on this one....

I dont know what forums he is referring to but I have given up reading SCI...that one was falling apart for me and the owner pisses me off, so no brainer there.

Huge thanks to @Vinno for helping me set up, new to the forum and to the hobby.

I did have a cheap set as a kid (no idea what brand or what happened to it but doubt it was one of the major brands). Stumbled back across this hobby a week or so ago while watching James Mays Toy Stories and... Really keen to get into it.

Welcome aboard Jason

Nice to have another member. I haven't been here all that long myself, so welcome Jason, from another relative newbie.

Good story, Jason.

I've written it a few times now my experiance thus far since the TV show consists of searching youtube for things to watch and tempt myself with lol
I suspect Im coming from a similar angle to most people, except I found it much later in life (36)

No insanity here, the voices in my head told me so :)
