This is where we will announce general changes to this forum. Such as layout changes, new categories, and special announcements about forum operations. On a personal note, at 5:05 AM pacific time on Jan 28 09 I reached the 24 hours mark on my time on the forum. It would have been much longer without the help of Garet and Lou. Thanks Gents  ;D

You're welcome, Ray.  But we couldn't have done it without you!  Don't know what it looks like over in Bremerton right now, but we see big black clouds your direction.  We have several inches of snow here in Seattle, and the schools are closed.

You will note a change at the top of the SMM/SMF board. If you have all windows expanded, each box showing a - symbol in the upper right hand corner. You will see at the top of the page, on the left side, just above the "Home" tab, Two buttons have been added. One saying "ADD THIS" and one saying "SUBSCRIBE".
The "ADD THIS" Button will allow you to add the page you are viewing to your favorite bookmarking, networking or search engine site or blog. This is PAGE specific it will add the exact page you are viewing. Not the whole site. If you want to add the whole SMM board site the go to the start page first. Posting this site
on search engines with that button will bring traffic here. Traffic means activity and members.


The second "SUBSCRIBE" button is for those of you who use RSS feeds to get updates. Again it is Page specific.

A note on Links. If you see the Solid Model Memories page posted on any links boards, message boards or sites. Please click it to make sure it goes to the New Homepage http://smm.solidmodelmemories.net/ and not the old one. Please send me a link and a note so I can contact them to change it.

On a personal note, This posting marks 3 days, 23 hours and 59 minutes online here.

The 12th of December Will be the one year anniversary of the new site.  :o
We have one year left on the hosting contract so I will start a fund raising effort after the first of the year.
We only need to raise $150.00 in the next year, for another two year contract.
I am working on making the site self supporting. But It still must be free to use and not contain adds so this will take some thinking on my part.
