Well, there's me and at least one weirdo (besides Peeb).

Besides, we had a record 129 people online at the same time on April 17. And as I write this, there are 16 guests active visiting.

But no-one ever posts ! Sigh. :cry:

I admit I do check in here often. I moved from here to facebook (If you grew up in Georgetown..you remember...) I would have preferred to stay at GTOL but it is like the local bars I frequented in the 1980's, you have to go where the rest of the gang is. So, as I public isolate I will keep checking into GTOL. and facebook.
Stay safe. Stay connected.

For awhile there I thought I must have missed a bunch of funerals, but I guess everyone just nodded off or forgot their passwords.

The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.

Good Morning Mark, John and Peebs! I have been checking in about 6 times a year and this morning was reading about where everyone has gone. Well we know where the majority are - Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. You guys are amazing to have kept this site going this long. I went for a walk this morning and was going to post a picture, but it says the file is too big. It's just a typical photo I took on my iphone. Can we change that? I think by posting pictures it will attract more interest and activity - jmho.

Enjoy this more reasonable temperature today!

Hi Gloria, I'm looking into increasing the filesize allowed for photos. But could you let me know what filesizes we're talking about, please? That way I'll have a better idea of how to proceed.

Thanks much,
Mark

We used to have to upload it to a service and then download it here. Too much work. If you fix it I have some good BooB pictures for my BooB post.

Hi Mark: Thanks for looking into this. I tried again this morning. First time it said "the extension heic is not allowed". Tried again and it said "maximum 256 KiB".

Hi Gloria,

There are two issues. First, how big is a typical photo? (2 MB ? ? )

Second, do we need to increase the amount of storage available, and what would be the cost? I'm assuming we might eventually have a couple of hundred photos. At 2 MB each we'd use another 500MB or so of storage.

UPDATE

It looks as if we still have a goodly amount of disk space available.

So I've increased the permissible file size to 2MB.

Just tried to upload a file from my photos album. No luck again. Will try again when I have a bit more time. Same answer - file too big.

I must have screwed something up. :oops: But I think it's OK now. Fingers crossed!
