    Alex, if you can't import the SUSCO threads, is there a way volunteers can help in a copy-and-paste sort of way? Or would that just make life harder?

    I will volunteer untold amounts of time to do such a thing that Thrivalista has suggested!!!! I'm in for it! There is too much valuable information there.

    Great idea Thrivalista and Draftlady. I don't mind lending a hand with some of that either if needed.

    Is the SusCo library still intact????
    Gnaws fingernails..
    Of the two, Susco is the one I want. It is a bible of sustainable projects and knowledge. It is our electronic doom library of Alexandria/Ephesus/etc.
    I've always tried to push interest in Susco and to get folks to participate.
    But I was always comfortable, and could sleep well at night knowing that all that good stuff was there. If it could be printed out, I would love to pay for a copy.

    I have access to a +10K private library here, hard copy paper, and wouldn't it be lovely to get some of those uploaded and/or available. If Susco becomes interactive, this could happen.
    SusCo is for the brilliance of our co-creativity and construction, whereas SilCo is a (useful) place to put our hearts on our sleeves. Opinions are like
    .
    .
    .
    elbows, we each have a couple of them.

    I think it makes economic sense to do this move.
    And perhaps it will free up some of your time, which is invaluable.
    If there's anything I/We/You can do to help, say so...
    You're a good sysop. XOXOXO

    No library is in tact (which you can see see n use at susco).
    Oddly enough. That I might be able to pull over. Because the data on it is so shallow.

    I built my own link library system that I might populate and hook up (via a frame or link) here. That way it's completely separate from the forum software and something I am certain I could import into and maintain completely myself (code wise).
    There are 124 records in the SUSCO library. Easily exportable.

    It's on the list :-)

    I like the restructuring job that was done. Keeping it simple with less redundancy works.

    For those of us that are subscribed to all 3 forums, it can be a bit confusing in the search results (today's posts, auto refresh, etc).
    So I have introduced icons for each of the major sections.

    VB doesnt make it easy and I had to add them to each one individually but it does quickly identify which 'forum' each post belongs to.

    I may tweak the icons a bit over time but will see how this works.

    Maybe bring them down a bit?

    67 subscribers to The Tin Ceiling and 74 to Sustainable Country

    Not too bad for the first week.

    all my favorite topics under one roof. Life is good. It reminds me of when I played the Media PA Blues Stroll many years ago. I played in a coffee house that was owned by an opthamologist who was also board certified for facial surgery. Attached to his coffee house was his eyeglass store and there was a day spa in the back. I could have had a latte, gotten new glasses, and a brazilian wax, and... more importantly get Botox injections. All under one roof.
    It is never too late to have a happy childhood.

    I like the newest, darker-green Susco style, thanks. The lighter green showed up kinda lime on my screen and was painful to view.

    Another change in making this collection work...
    This forum (site news) has been moved into a Top Section that every registered user can see, regardless of subscription.

    It will be my way of being able to get messages to all 3 groups regardless of what you may have subscribed to - or unsubscribed from.

    Carry on.
