To say that I was troubled by SOH loosing my attachments in the thread New ways to have fun with CFS1 would be an understatement; I was pi$$ed-of!!!
Fortunately, I kept the original text and accompanying pictures in a folder on my PC. The only question left was "what to do with it"?
Re-installing the attachments in the original thread was technically impossible, at least for me. Re-doing the entire thread was out of the question; I have a life beside this pass time you know, and I want to keep it that way. No Dice suggested that I do it in a PDF format. This is certainly one solution, but it would mean loosing the hyper-links and the animated GIFs. It would also mean having to re-size some pictures to fit the pages.
This is why I opted for a "have your cake and keep it too" formula; HTML. This way, I could include links, pictures and animations, most of them in the original format they were made without wondering if my image server or SOH would permit it and, if so, under which reduced format and size.
It is also a very easy to read format; if you can read this thread, you can read a HTML document.
The first HTML chapter is available at the bottom of "my" page at The Free Flight Site HERE, thanks to No Dice aka Dave.
It covers posts #1 to #19 of the original thread. Chapter 1 covers "The aircraft container", "Gutting a model", "Final gutting", "Tidying-up the place", and an "ADDENDUM". At the moment of uploading, all the hyper-links were functional.
You can also read the HTML document off-line, without the benefit of the links, but with all images.
Once I have caught-up with the butchered thread, I will make new chapters when I have covered enough matter to do so. Right now, I don't know if I will have the heart to go back to that thread or simply go on with HTML version only.
This is where your input would be appreciated...
