|shenley||:||Thanks for the update, Larry. Just spoke to Norm and he sounded in good spirits. He said life in the retirement village was very good. Like you said, he misses all the great RBR days (we all do). I've now got the phone number to his room so it will be easier for me to ring him in the future. He said he had to go because Bingo was on in a few minutes.|
|Jenolan||:||Norm said he is having a lot of problems with his sight, miss all of the old crew RBR was really something grand when it was rocking|
|shenley||:||Thanks, Larry. I was wondering how Norm was getting on in the aged-care facility. I will give him a phone call soon. He said it might be difficult getting through to him now. Not surprised he has retired from RBR scenarios. Pleased he is still OK. Regards, Peter|
|Jenolan||:||Heard from Norm, no more RBR... I am still pondering paying (again) for the latest Trainz and writing Activities using the terrible rule based sessions|
|shenley||:||Nice to hear your updates, Larry. Hope the move hasn't been too much of a problem. Regards, Peter|
|Jenolan||:||Bought a Ryobi lawn mower (battery 18v) to do our tiny lawn, and a transfer pump to use the bath water on the garden|
|Jenolan||:||After more than a month of missing the farm, the worst thing drinking water, miss our clean fresh rain water tanks every day. And the morning kookaburras, maggies, even the wombat|
|Jenolan||:||Weather for West Bathurst (our Endolin) is now active|
|Jenolan||:||We have named our new house Endolin ... see if you can work out the reference. Disney movie, computer based, debug mode on.|
|Jenolan||:||Last day on our beloved farm in to town Monday|
Just a bunch of fixes and a text munger to force UTF8 to display properly even though the whole site is set to use it by default, probably an issue between CMSB tables, PDO data retrieval and PHP processing but no matter what was fiddled it all wouldn't comply. So I hit it with the biggest spanner.
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.
