Still trying to upload

It seems that others are managing to get their photos onto the forum Is it me? Have I finally lost it? It had to happen sometime, I know! Or am I not uploading the way I should although I believe I'm trying to do it the way I always have?

Or should I buy a Canikon and join another forum?

???????????????

Re: Still trying to upload

It's not just you. I've had issues previously & Ian is trying his best to solve it.

See this quote from another thread.

It seems there is another more obscure problem behind this one!

Incidentally, I have had some reports that the site is running slowly. I can't say I have noticed this - if anyone else has, can you let me know via forum mail or email forum-admin@e-group.uk.net and please include your broadband IP address (go to http://whatismyipaddress.com/).

Thanks,

Ian
I suggest you contact Ian & give him your IP address as he requests.

Thanks Ross, I will.

I think you could do with some (if not all) of the heavy rain we're getting now. How is it now with you? Still a bit warm?

It's still hot & muggy with a possible shower tomorrow (& also cooler) & Monday & it will warm up again during the week with maybe a bit more of a shower possible next Friday (well that's what they're predicting at the moment). There's a cyclone off the West Australian coast & that will have its affect over Australia & we should get a little rain due to its presence (if we're lucky). Normally the top end of Australia is having monsoon rains by now but since they aren't we are all getting the hot dry winds from across the centre & temperatures are going up to the mid 40's (& higher in some locations). I don't take heat too well & wish for cooler weather. Here's hoping decent rain will come soon, but without the big floods (it's normal for some flooding up north, but not like it was during the last few years over all the eastern states, north & south).

I hope the forum gets back to normal for you & everybody else soon.

How does the large changes in humidity levels affect your working on violins, Ross?

Generally speaking, not too much but allowances have to be made for the humdity level when fitting pegs (& sound posts) & rehairing bows etc.. Closing up opened violins (& cellos) that have been open for a while needs to be taken carefully, but I will turn on the air conditioner when I need too (which can dry things out & allownces need to be considered), not for the instruments sake but more for mine, of course. It is important for instruments to be in a stable enviroment, but that's not always possible.

It's the old violins that come in from someone that says, "my grandfather played this Strad violin & it's been stored in the roof of the garage" or "under my bed", that's when I generally cringe at what they bring to me. First of all, it ain't no Strad (only a cheap or maybe better copy) & usually it's coming unglued & in various states of disrepair, as well as carpet beetle infestation (eats the horse hair of the bow & case felt lining as well), but that's just part of the fun of repairing these instruments. The good comes with the bad. Setting up & selling new imported instruments is (generally) more relaxing, but both (repairs & sales) can be rewarding. All I have to do is not spend too much time with my camera or here on the forum & the work gets done.

Have you worked on a real Strad (and more importantly, are you sufficiently insured to work on a real Strad)? I would be frightened to even touch one!
