What was wrong with the old "Gauge" website?.This new site is totally confusing chaos
I'll get those for you this evening.
knowone in the US is stuck with just dial up. that might just be all that there phone company offers,
if so try these.....
1. cable net
2. theres atleast 6 sat internet company's
3. theres all kinds of wireless internet companys around. (in se iowa any town that gets water from rathben lake can get wireless if there within 20 miles of the water tower. every tower has an inntena on top of it for the net)
now if you cant aford to pay for the others then thats a different story
Peter, is there a reason the "Quick Reply" box doesnt work...or is that just me?
And FYI, for those of you who are having trouble navigating past the other hobby boards...Just put this link in your bookmarks.
And hey! My avatar is back! Thanks!
Quick Reply isn't working, apparently, but worse than that, this site is loading VERY slooooooooooow. I am on a 8MB cable line, and it's slower than dial up. I wonder if it's a security setting, or???
Thanks, I do appreciate it.
make it so you dont have to hit a quick reply button to be able to enter into the quick reply at the bottom?
From what I've seen so far, I don't like this new look as well. The layout if very busy and confusing. I hope it can be changed back to how it was. Rob
Apparently you know more about it than I do. But just in case you don't, look up latency (hint: It has to do with how well your six satellite systems work with certain applications that can't tolerate the delay.)
Look up rural (hint: Broadband service in many if not most of rural America is virtually nonexistent. It has become a political issue with talk of the digital divide between the city and the country folk.)
Look up Appalachia (hint: wireless broadband is only available along major highways, and those of us not living next to one can't see the signal because of something called hills. Look them up, too).
Nice to know you are one of those who thinks The Gauge should be operated only for those with the benefit of lots of cash.
Are you one of those threatening to go elsewhere? Make my day. Tell me yes.
Part of the reason that pictures end up in threads like these is that one picture usually is worth a thousand words. I don't mind typing the thousand words also, but many people, even those looking for an answer to a problem, won't read words with no pictures. And I do agree with what you're probably thinking about that, but this is still supposed to be a place to share information.
Many of us with a high-speed connection don't consciously load up a thread with pictures just to bug folks on dial-up. I started out on the Gauge with a dial-up connection, and was a fairly prolific picture-poster. It is easy to get carried away, though, on a high-speed connection.
It's possible that this might happen here, too: full-size photos in the Photography thread, and thumbnails in all of the other Forums, although the pictures interspersed amid the text, as appropriate, might be easier to understand.
Perhaps when Peter has finished the rebuild, we can see if the idea of limiting picture size in some Forums can be done here. There's still lots of fine tuning to be done.
New forum, new look, same old expectation that we keep it civil. Knock off the insults.
well i live in hickville, i have dsl i can get it in 4 or 5 speeds, i have the 2nd speed 768k i think.
what are ya going to do when dial up is no longer available? i cant get dial up even if i wanted it, its not offered here, and not in alot of other places . thats the only reason why i have dsl now. dsl costs me 5.00 more then the dial up. (unless i went to a faster speed)
ugh...i cant look at the site without this headache fromall the white...its going to get better in a few days,weeks? right,i really hope it does.the old gauge was easier to use and didnt have all this stuff totally unrelated to trains.and evil-bay just has to be on the side.....i hope this gets beter soon peter,i really do.--josh
and by the way peter,is there some way to make links come up in the same page?i had 6 pages on my tool bar and didnt even realize it.the extra pages are annoying.
if it's "gray' you have to click "post Reply" or a "Quote" box.... Then it will turn white and you can post....
What stuff unrelated to trains?
Are you talking about the other hobby forums?
It's already been posted several times how to bypass that.
And I kind of like the eBay adds.
some of it might be my stuff.
sorry i missed how to bypass the other forums,this thread grew so fast i couldnt read it all in my short amount of time.ill look back to see how to bypass it.thanks--josh
Bookmark this link:
Hobbies - The Gauge
That will open up sort of a "Homepage" for the Gauge.
If you click the uberlarge Forum Index link on this page, it will open up in a new window. I think Petere is going to fix that soon. However, if yuo scroll down, there is a list of most recent posts just like there was on the old Gauge homepage. If you click on one of those, it will bring you directly into the forum without opneing a second window.
Hah! Now there's a clue I can use.
Glad I could help.
When do I get to be a moderator?
I been ambushed
Sensory overload or what ?????????
Zealot, wiki Blogs. RCs, auctions...
The Gauge now looks like every other entry level wanna-be forum.
I just want to hang out with train people !!!!!!!
Go back to where we were.
