|marjon||:||Just a thanks to Norm, Norm its not too bad in a retirement village, I have been in one for 18 years!!|
|Jenolan||:||@puffingbilly Added your shout to the blog|
|Puffingbilly||:||Just updating further to Norm's announcement. Neither T4 or T6 run under Windows 10, so unless I can get my son to create a dual boot system on my new PC I will not be able to beta test LOC56 which effectively means the RBR has run its last scenario. I will update further once I can establish whether the dual boot is achieved. Cheers Ron|

|Jenolan||:||News: CESS v0.13 Link Busting & RTE|
|shenley||:||Sorry, my mistake. That's even better.|
|Jenolan||:||Did not say my site was shutting down, only that Trainz has been flushed....|
As HTML 5 still seems to bugger up noticing page refreshing I have instigated link busting all over the site, if you notice a link missing the _cess (eg https://jenolan.org/?_cess=ad48efcc730d6b3e10f4c9fe71b56e9fa58d89f8) let me know so I can bust it as well.
Comments & Shouts also now use the TinyMCE editor, limited to smilies and bold, italic etc though.
The old wordpress comments are now back in the blog area and if you are logged in you may make a comment.
Just a small change to have the mutterings at the top rotate in real time rather than only page refresh. Boring ... move along, this is not the code you were looking for.
A fully home cooked shoutbox is now available, also various fixes and additional widgets have been added.
Due to adding some more security code the chat and hence shout box is throwing errors, it has been disabled for now. Will roll my own shout box once all of this extra security coding has been completed.
This is not a whinge session, just an update on living in the bush.
The storms that arrived during February were quite something, next door a lightning strike took out their transformer. Multiple days we were without power, the phone was off more than it was on and is still faulty.
Power wise, I bought a new generator big beastie a few months ago as Edison's has a special 50% off then PayPal offered 20% off the price so I stumped up the $1,000 odd so that we had enough grunt to keep the fridge and freezers going. Without that we would have lost all of our farm meat, kill a sheep style. So saved there, also we had one that hit really close, it took everything out and also fried the TV system antenna, booster, power, cabling was all kablooied changed all that and still no boob tube so had to get the guy to come out, easy with his magical level detector the new antenna needed to be pointed a bit differently than the old one.
The weather station also lost its mind and at the same time my computer and the server had a joint drop of the guts ... most of my coding stuff was scrambled, was able to recover the program code itself but the server data was not recoverable, oh well that's what happens with electronics from time to time.
Building a new server, bought an old refurbished HP Z400 workstation, removed the HDD and just installed two SSD drives for it to replace the old Dell server that was not worth fixing, it will do the weather station and also run the local development web stuff I still like to tinker with from time to time.
Anyway summer is almost done, winter is coming.
Norm has just sent me a message about moving into a retirement village and that LOC56 which will be available when tested by Puffing Billy will probably be the last of the RBR scenarios. Thanks for keeping RBR alive for so long Norm, please don't just disappear.
So Trainz/RBR is officially over ... it was fun back in the day, be good!
Well another iteration of Trainz, to download you need 30 gigabytes of download capability (on SkyMuster sure) and to have access to the content it is US$15 a month.Sorry not me, I wasted money buying a WinDoze laptop for T:ANE to try and build an Activity system as the MacOS version doesn't have TrainzUtil to build stuff and it was just not fun.
So officially, well can't be no offishyal RBR is long dead, I will have nothing further at all to do with Trainz. Norm was talking about another TRS2004 Activity and I will make that available but simply it is all just too much fluff now with no real intent for driving. It is not a simulator it is just a glorified graphics mash.
Hope everyone is well, be good!
Currently on the pot is JATZ, the new Activities will only be for T:ANE SP2, a sampler is being worked on slowly using Highland Valley the process is likely to be pretty tedious as I am trying to use as much of the built-in rule processing as possible which makes it wicked hard.
Zec has mentioned that he has almost a working T:ANE version of the old RBR route, now that's interesting!
There's a reason you separate military and the police. One fights the enemies of the state, the other serves and protects the people. When the military becomes both, then the enemies of the state tend to become the people.

The factory at Jindowee is almost out of diesel, so your job today is to pick up the loaded diesel wagons at Ashburn and deliver them to Jindowee.
Once you are there you can pick up a spare loco and bring the wagons loaded with general goods back to Ashburn.
Sorry about the weather
All signals and junctions will be set for you.
Have a good day.
