    We had some trouble because as most humble people, Ed never thought of how many people would like to see the on-line mag. Sometimes, all it takes is a litle communication, some troubleshooting and some good ol' know-how and we modelers can fix anything....

    We have proved this again, right here on The-Gauge!

    Thanks to:
    Peter, Spitfire, rich maiorano and I, we have now troubleshooted, beta tested & edited the original magazine. There should not be any more bandwidth problems....

    Last but not least - We All Thank Ed - for dedicating his time to thinking of this and designing it!!!!!!!

    ~~ Mikey - Administrator

    Now, for Ed's original post:

    Drum roll please......

    The Gauge On-line magazine, is........on line.
    You can see it here at:
    http://www.the-gauge.com/magazine/decmag/decissue.htm
    Its short...But with your help....It could be bigger.
    Its also listed in geocities, so non-members can see it also.
    So lets see some stuff!!!

    Very nice, any chance the format can be changed so you wouldn't have to do the left/right scrolling?

    Close your sidebar and most pages you will no longer have to scroll L/R

    That was done, so we could leave the pics nice & clear - We might keep that on the cover "only" from now on. :) That, of course, depends on the size of the Chosen Picture.. :D :D

    Thanks for your input!! Every suggestion will be overlooked..err "looked over"

    Sounds like I'm the only one that is getting red x's instead of pic's. Anyone else having the same problem?

    I opened the page with IE and got most of the pics, my problem must be with AOL's browser. I know alot of people don't like AOL but, their browser opens pages faster than IE. :mad:
