Great Software blog has moved
« on: March 24, 2006, 02:07:13 AM »
Just a heads up, I've moved my Great Software blog to blogdrive over blogger and being self-hosted. I tried WordPress, but for what I wanted it to do, it would have cost me money to host it properly, so I gave in. Oh, and just a warning, the title is deceiving: I talk about all kinds of crap, like any blogger worth their salt should! So drop in and set me straight.

i'm not sure exactly the issues but donationcoder would be very happy to give you any webspace and bandwidth you would want and set up any software you want for blogging.

sorry I don't follow up on these — the NEW address is http://www.thegsblog.com/

It would have cost me to host a WordPress blog properly, but I had a friend come to my rescue!

Amen to that! Beautiful looking. And I was wondering if GS had died.. it seems it hasn't been updated in FOREVER. Glad to hear the flame behind it is still flickering. Perhaps it's time to turn the knob wide open on the gas pipe that keeps that flame flickering? :)

Hey, it finally got updated tonight with one program — ACDSee Pro. Here's the link to my typical graphics screenshot:

just a friendly reminder:

this forum has a wide spectrum of members, from kids to adults, with wide ranging views.
and some of us surf from work, etc.

so if you post a link to material that is sexually suggestive, etc., please make a note of that in your post so those concerned with such things can avoid clicking on them.

[this is in reference to zaine's post above to his infamous graphics review which has some pictures which may not be to everyone's taste].

The first image for ACDSee Pro loads only halfway. 'Tis a shame! :)

@mouser Thanks for the warning.

I read through it too fast to see it and got a little shock, but I appreciate the effort. :o

So true, and be warned: my site, my tastes, and my judgment, and I'd never cater to the wee ones. I've [proudly] been criticized by print columnists over the page-3 screenshots. Oh well, one man's art is another's offense, but I don't mean it as such.
