    Photo server

    Gentlemen, are you interested in a private photo host? It will require a login (separate from your Gunsnet creds.) and it will be private (i.e. ONLY for Gunsnet members and at that only GNS members that are regulars) No lurkers or those 24 posts since 2005 guys.

    Anything legal is allowed. Any porn stuff must be restricted to the Roadhouse or XXX forum.

    I've got about 4 terabytes of free space on my network server, so if you guys want it I'll put one up.

    And, I'll be trusting you all not to post illegal shit like kiddee porn or hostile, threatening mems, etc... I know none of you will, but I gotta say it.

    And, if anyone sees questionable material, I would hope it's brought to my attention.

    I don't mind sharing some disk space with you guys, but I don't want to get into trouble for someone else's upload, ya know?

    So, let me know. I also will probably want a few of you to be moderators to keep the server legal.

    Lemme know.

    YES PLEASE !!
    There are some beautiful astronomical and landscape photos that I would love to be able to post, as well as some of Bettie Page and Elizabeth Gracen (Highlander) for the RH.

    That would be sweet!
    Would like to post some pictures but hesitate on uploading to host sites on the web.
    You never know who has access or will hijack them to use elsewhere.

    Any chance you've got a back-up of the old pics from Gunsnet - before the crash?

    Sorry, I don't have any of the old stuff. And, nobody will be able to hijack the photos... it will be on my server in my house and only Gunsnet members will have accounts.

    I need a few days to set it all up and work out a MySql setup problem that's driving me nuts, but I'll have it ready to go soon.

    @Everyone: When it's ready (not before!) PM me and I'll setup your account with a default password. Then, log in, change the password to whatever you want. That's it.

    Note: Lurkers need not apply.

    Gentlemen,

    Photo server is installed. It's mostly setup, but not completely. If you want to use it, please PM me with your desired USERNAME. I will create an account for you and PM you back a TEMPORARY password which you should change immediately to whatever you want (and don't use your Gunsnet password if possible). You CAN use your Gunsnet username if you wish, but the password should be different.

    The link for the photo server is: http://www.hobbytent.com

    If you try to log in and see a message "Gallery is currently offline - check back soon", I'm probably setting or fixing something, so try back a bit later.

    If you run into any problems or have any requests, let me know (here, via PM). Since it's a new setup, it will most certainly need "tweaking", plus I myself need to get up to speed on how to set it up properly.

    The setup is currently private (that is, ONLY YOU can see your photos and upload or delete them). Of course, you can still link to them and display them on any other site that you want to, but on the photo server itself, only you can see them.

    If you all end up wanting them to be viewable by other users, I can do that. It's up to you.

    After three attempts on different days, all I get is a blank, white browser window that ends up saying that "the connection has timed out".

    If you can get it up and running, I have to say kudos to you ol' Krups. Thanks for helping people out as posting photos became kind of a drag here lately.

    EDIT TO ADD: When you register, it will ask you for a "global password". Use this (exactly as shown):

    kalashnikov_private


    Then enter the username you want and the password you want. The "global password" keeps those out who don't know about the global password.

    And you only need it once (to register).

    Please see this post about how to register and log into the photo server. Instead of individually setting up users, there is a "security password" to prevent non-GNS people from registering.

    Glad you're using it. I figured a few members here would be interested. So far, not many.

    One thing I have noticed that is concerning.
    On several occasions, usually when uploading multiple pictures, the instant the upload is complete, the screen changes and flashes "ERROR!" and some other text (don't remember exactly what) but the gist of it is that I have to log in again but when I have, the pictures are in the folder they should be.
    Strange.
