Re: Mobile device request -iPhone droid etc

I can't seem to get the software to properly install without having to go super crazy and muck about with the internals by hand. I'll keep trying periodically since I had *just* updated the phpBB version before trying and the auto instal package may not have been ready for that. But I haven't forgot...

Login Difficulties

Hi Everyone- I've just now been told about the login troubles that people have been recently encountering getting into the KCME forums. The forum software is currently at the most recent release version, so there is no maintenance/upgrade for me to perform (yet). I have no proof, but my suspicion is...

Domain Name Renewals

Just a friendly reminder that the kcminiacs.org domain needs to be renewed by 2/11/2011 and kcminiclub.com needs to be renewed by 2/21/2011. It appears that GoDaddy.com (the service with whom our domains are registered) is running a special and both domains can be renewed for two years for $40.72 at...

Password Security

I just wanted to swoop in and gently remind everyone that its a good idea to occasionally change your online passwords. I have no reason to suspect that you need to worry about it here since they're encrypted in the database but its a good idea to switch things around every so often :) KCME website ...

Checking in

Hey everyone,

I'm just stopping by to make sure everything is working as expected and to see if there was anything you all needed me to do for the website.

Happy motoring,

Hi Everyone! I wanted to let you all know that effective immediately all KCME emails and correspondence from the forums will now be "from" the email address dispatch@kcminiclub.com rather than my personal kangamini@mac.com address. If you use a whitelist or any other type of SPAM filtering...

Re: Weird Accident

Minidave- that's good news! Counterfit- The xB may get worse mileage, but I can haul stuff/people in one trip what I would previously have needed two or three trips to carry at two or three times the miles to transport. My trip back from Kentucky (650 miles) got an average of 27 mpg (highway, mostly...

As a follow up to this - some people have emailed saying that they're still prompted to download the viewtopic.php file - if that is the situation I recommend clearing your browsers cache and that should clear up any lingering problems.

Re: Weird Accident

I don't know about Corollas but I've driven Camry's as rental/loaners and they were a little odd too. But I like my xB - its suits me just fine and the 2.6L engine feels almost as sporty as my former Cooper-S engine. But after almost two years I am STILL not over losing my GETRAG 6-speed tranny, my ...

Downtime (May 21 & 22)

Hello everyone, I just wanted to apologize for the downtime last night and this morning. My hosting company upgraded the backend software that runs the software for the forums and a few other websites I run (PHP) and something went goofy in the process. Apparently all of my sites were set to use ver...

Re: Weird Accident

Back in 2004 or so, I hit a bird once whilst motoring on my way to work in Lawrence on K-10 one morning. I saw it coming and fortunately it hit the front windshield instead of any metal. I was probably going a typical 75-80 mph and I have no idea how fast the bird was going... It left a greasy spot ...

By the way - that weird post is apparently dialogue or something from Diablo III - I ran it by a friend of mine who is an über-nerd and he identified it almost immediately. I think I need less geeky friends.. hehe

Re: How to put photo in profile

I have modified the avatar settings to allow images up to 70k to be uploaded.

An image that is 150x150 pixels at 8-bits should weigh in around 65k at max. Just as long as you aren't trying to upload 32-bit Photoshop or TIFF files you should be OK now :)

Re: Screen Name Change

I have screen name changes disabled on here partly for security and partly to avoid confusion on everyone else's part... But if you're completely desperate to change it, I can always try working Voodoo directly on the database itself to affect a name change that won't make you lose your count or any...

Re: kcminiacs.org set to expire Feb. 11

It's about $10 or $11 to register for another year, plus another eight bucks for private registration. I don't think there will be a rush to grab that domain for another group, just more along the lines of people setting up fake search result pages so that if someone goes to that, they might think t...
