Monthly Archives: November 2016

Bit of excitement round the Dark Side

Well, 37421 on Derby to Round Oak on Monday and 66555 to Brierley Hill, then 66519 to Brierley Hill on Tuesday – an excuse to get out and video something! No idea why Freightliner are running to Brierley Hill unless the Croft stone trains are to start again? Time will tell. The Colas 37 from Derby was for route refreshing, apparently.

The videos are uploaded and the calendar updated but I’ve yet to get back into the swing of adding more images to the galleries.

Coppermine gallery security upgrade to version 1.5.44

Having ignored my galleries for many months, I noticed I needed to upgrade the software. Four of them are now running the latest software but I have a couple of “test” versions I still need to work on. It all takes time…. but I’m getting faster at it.

Even worked out how to move a complete gallery and mysql database to a different hosting package, bit of head-scratching went on though at times!!

Calendar updated for November

I’ve checked through my videos and posted brief details on the calendar page for November 2016. I think most have been uploaded to YouTube but there are no proper links to videos or playlists from this blog. As to the galleries, I haven’t added the appropriate images which would show the link to the videos. At least I’m makin an effort to catch up!

Winter is here, now will I start updating the blog again?

There aren’t enough hours in the day, too much to do – or one of many other reasons why I’m so far behind. I need a plan of action….

Looking back over the last couple of months, two galas at the SVR, a week in Cornwall, gardening and other “things” that take up my time. Most of the videos have been edited and uploaded, but not linked to from here. Perhaps I can start entering details of the videos on the calendar, let’s see what happens.
