  1. Let's slow down for a minute. Does anyone have reliable information on what Dr. Cranky is doing and why? I've seen precious little thus far. Yet people feel perfectly free to speculate in a disparaging manner. It takes a huge effort to write a book and get it ready for publication. I've seen it. Ratz, Rodz, and Rust is a very nice book for about the same price as a kit. If you like rusty things, you should get a copy. It also takes a lot of effort to put together even a few minutes of video. The rule of thumb is an hour of raw video for a few minutes of finished video. OK, he's getting money from Youtube, and his book. Those are honest efforts. The Youtube channel alone probably consumes a fat chunk of his free time. That he's not on here is neither surprising or insidious. So, going forward, don't speculate. It doesn't make the world better for anyone. And yes, I cleaned up the thread. If your post here is gone, consider it a warning.
  2. Sounds like a security rule. We're working on getting those figured out. This is like learning a whole 'nother language.
  3. Did this work after we upgraded? I don't think it's part of the default theme for the site. I will be updating that in the next month or so.
  4. It looks like you encountered our security rule problem. I'm still figuring this one out, but should have a solution soon. The words i n s e r t and s e l e c t tend to inflame the security rules. Misspelling them should get the post to work.
  5. Congratulations, Tomo. That's a huge improvement on your painting. Painting is the hardest part of this hobby, and orange peel the bane of our existence.
  6. Are these large photos? We have a 6MB limit on photo size.
  7. I’m so sorry. I hope you can find comfort and healing.
  8. I have a few scars in my hands from slipping knives. I couldn't afford new blades so often used the blades for too long. Didn't have the patience to sharpen them, tho I did eventually develop an OK technique.
  9. I sometimes keep my instructions. IPMS rules for box stock mandate that the instructions be with the model, so if I might enter a model in that class, I keep them. Sometimes, I don't build all parts of a kit. If there is a left-over say, a tractor, I'll put the parts in a baggie with the instructions so I can put it together at a later date.
  10. This is one of my favorites. For those not familiar with him, Jeff Dunham is a ventriloquist, and Achmed, the dead terrorist, is one of his characters. This is Achmed's hotrod.
  11. I find I have to periodically cycle power, otherwise my iPad gets neurotic.
  12. This new Google ad system is just a fiasco. The Drag Racing section got blacklisted as adult content by their automated system. Back when the Internet was young and frisky, a common insult was referring to someone as a “buggy AI program.” Now that moniker is more apropos than ever.
  13. Wow. We already block those, but clearly someone has gamed the system. Let me see what I can do.
  14. I wouldn't worry about it too much. I don't think the last word exists on any known subject. Sometimes, it's useful to revisit older discussions and questions. Things change. Our understanding changes, and if we aren't different people than we were 3 years ago, we're not growing enough.
  15. Ideally, we'd put them in their own section. But, we already have too many subcategories, and I'm very reluctant to make more. That said, I see your point.
