Greetings everyone! A few of you have noticed that at certain times access to the Spey Pages is denied. Seems the site is just too darn popular! Yahoo/Geocities has decided that any sites that exceed a predetermined amount of data transfer will be temporarily "shut down" from time-to-time in an effort to get people who have developed popular sites to pay for site hosting (I'd be okay with that if I got a cut of their ad revenue!  ). Anyways, I have been working on a site move for several months now that will reopen 24/7 access to Spey Pages and revamp this BB; we are nearing completion, so this limited access thing should stop being an issue in the near future.
 
Over the next few months I'm going to do another subscrition drive with the hope that those of you who already subscribe will support Spey Pages for another year, and those of you who don't will consider a subscription. Subscribers who signed up last winter still have a few more articles coming their way, but you can renew anytime. Email me at [email protected] for more info.
 
Once the new site is up I'm also going to look at the possibility of adding some advertising to the site to help the cause, so if any of you think you might be interested in advertising on the Spey Pages email me.
 
In the meantime, the fall season is upon us--get out there and fish!
 
best,
 
Dana

Dana,

Does revamping the BB mean that this msn site will cease to exist? If so, I'm gonna buy a ream of paper and start printing...

Steve, the crazy tall one

Hi Steve--yes, unfortunately. What I will do is to give everyone a "heads up" beforehand and then leave this site up as a reference for 4 - 6 weeks before shutting it down.

Dana PLEASE say yes to the data transfer .... or .... anyway to download on to a hard drive of some sort and transfer into the new 'site?????'
 
Second suggestion is why don't we all meet in Redmond, Washington and 'march' on Bill Gates?  He's making enough money to fund all of our lives. OK by me as he's earned it; but .... if he's so 'into' his MSN lets give him an opportuninty to make it work in Canada.

We're looking at a bunch of options, but transferring all this stuff looks like a big problem. I'm open to suggestions on this process. We're still a little ways away from the changeover so no one needs to panic, and I'll give everyone lots of warning before I shut this site down, but this might be a good time to look through some of this stuff and download anything you'd like to keep.

There are 8 screens of stuff accumulated over the past few years. Some of it is time-specific (an old Skagit clave, stuff from last year's gathering, how the Thompson fished last November etc) which may or may not be especially useful for us later on. But much of the other stuff is--rod reviews, line recommendations, taper formulas, etc et etc. I suppose we could sift through it all, download the meaty stuff, compress it and then I could put it somewhere on the new site. I think the critical thing is to get it stored. We can figure out where to put it etc later. Anyone want to help me with something like this?

I'd be prepared to assist.  I'm no computer geek but I take instruction well.

I downloaded about 1/2 the info the other night and will work on it over the next few weeks. Then I'll figure out how to place it in an accessible archive on the new board. I won't shut this one down until it has been thoroughly tested and we are certain that the info is available.

Agree that Geocities has more than it's share of problems. I've been unsucessful in accessing anything through them for the past couple of days. No exceptions, just 'we're working on it' page comes up.
 
Glad "we" are still up and running.
