7/28/2010 - Blog changes and Railroad news

Blog changes notice:

You will notice a new catagories appear on this blog. One for mahalo and other for mylot, as I try to shorten the top section of this page.. the odesk feed may also be relocated to the news feeds page, which also may have minor catagories to make the page itself a little more organized, as far as the news articles themselves on the main page. This is about the longest I wish to host on the front page at once. I was trying to change the page style but most have a white or blue background the blue is to dark and white is to bright.. makes it harder to view and read.. So I will have to set a backround image of my own probably..  My whole begging message will disapear as at this time I do not have a scanner to draw, but if anyone wants to hire me to make graphics using the computer mouse and drawing this way I can.. via odesk.. or by 5$ amazon gift certificate. The links at the top to the FBI and IC3 news will be put in the news feed section, and that removed from this page. My banners will stay for now... And most 90% of the message explaining why we relocated from blogger will be removed.. Just leave it at technical difficulties...  the subdomain will remain directing to this blog at the moment but in the future this domain may be used to direct to my main webpage if this happens there will be a page on this page that will link to a list of all the blogs I run... I am gonna pull the chat scripts, and chat message.. I will reintroduce a chat on all my blogs at once when it is ready.. but for now I am to busy working on many projects to set up and run a chat community.  The rest of the ads and banners will remain on this page for now.  Thanks everyone for being patient as I try to reset this blog up, and get things organized...

:Well, all This week my mom brought a new desktop for me..
So, Now I can resume posting and updating my news blog again..
However, Please be patient with me as I am behind in emails, and ework..
So, it will take a little time to get caught up.. and I want to get the archives off this blog into the topic group... so there the page is not so long to load.. and I am having troubles figuring out how to delete and remove the archives.. If I continue to have this problem.. We may end up moving to blogging via html on an my actual website..  However, My DNatureofDTrain website host provider is complaining about server use.. and without my knowing and my friend knowing they rolled back the servers and disabled our forums..  So.. that plan is not safe to do at this point in time either...
I'll keep you all updated on what we are gonna do.. Feel free to start dropping in as I will start to spontaneously post both railroad and non railroad news again.

I regret to state this but when lightning took out the older computers I lost about 400 articles to post railroad, casey jones, and general news.,.. some I might be able to recover in another email.. but don't count on it.. as I am way behind work and such now.. The computer I have now was gifted to me by my best friend Tammy aka Shelonewolf.. We have our fights at times but no one could ask for a better friend in the long run. The only bad news about my new laptop is it is really old 2001 is the oldest program I found on it, and the harddrive is 14 gb.. so I can not do all my work sites until I can afford a portable hardrive to connect to it, I fear wearing this poor old computer out... to easily if I do to much of my normal high computer use with it. So I will post and do what I can... but the activity will be low until I can for sure resume all my normal activity. - DNatureofDTrain
