  1. If you have Netflix, I recommend Ancient Geniuses. Unfortunately, it goes away on the 31st.
  2. Answering that question would take this topic straight into the political realm. We don't do that here. I'm locking this topic so it doesn't get out of hand.
  3. These are great kits for people new to the hobby. Low parts count lets them focus on painting and all the other stuff that's now embedded itself into our lizard-brains and never enters our consciousness.
  4. Yes, they did. Us kids in CA, where it never rains during summer had them.
  5. Got the replacement. Damaged the same way. Is there a special machine that stomps packages they don't like? First Fedex, now the Postal Service. Come to think of it, I think the USPS contracts out some operations to Fedex. Say what you will about Amazon, but I don't have these kinds of issues with shipments they handle. (Now I wonder if this wasn't part of their motivation for starting their own deliveries.) Roberto from The Petersen has been so nice and helpful that it was painful writing the damaged-shipment email. Poor guy deserves better.
  6. I do apologize. I completely missed the significance of that. We should be good for the moment, and I'll figure out some kind of migration plan when it gets to that point.
  7. There aren't any quotes around the tags. In the post, they're just the tags. I felt like I needed to set them apart somehow. This caught me off guard. I didn't even know we had supported them until this morning. My first level assumption is that Invision will give us a way to convert them to their equivalent HTML tags. If not, I can get into the forum database, and convert the postings programmatically. That might take a few hours, as we are somewhere north of 2 million posts. I will follow up with Invision, and see what the future plan is. In the interim, I've reenabled them, s
  8. I think I know what's going on. There are " and " tags around your images. Those seem to mess everything up. If you just paste the straight URL (the text between the tags), the board is smart enough to identify them as images and embed them into your post. You can also tell it to embed them as links if you prefer. I'll see if there isn't some setting that I need to tweak and post back here if I find anything. For the time being at least, skip those tags and everything should work fine. Update: BBCodes were deprecated in the new version. I assume that at some point, they'll re
  9. I think I know what was going on. There were "[img]" and "[/img]" tags around your images. Those seem to mess everything up. If you just paste the straight URL (the text between the tags), the board is smart enough to identify them as images and embed them into your post. I'll repost this over in the How to Use this Board section.
  10. Ordered a limited edition print of a Dan Gurney F1 car and a book from the Petersen Museum. It arrived to day. The goods were well packaged, but Fedex managed to drop something along the lines of an anvil on it. The print, which was in a sturdy mailing tube was creased and the book had some new wrinkles too. I don't know how Fedex managed to do this, but they did. Dropped a line to the Petersen today, and they're getting on making a claim and sending me replacements. They rock.
  11. You should be able to drag and drop the files into the area at the bottom of the reply box. Or, you can click "choose files" and it opens up a native file opening dialog. Let me know if neither one of those work for you.
  12. This is a great way to display your models. That dragster on the upper deck is especially interesting. Can you share its story?
  13. That is great news. I always get this little lump in my throat when I see someone's been laid off. You not only landed on your feet, but stuck the landing.
