General Discussion / I must have been honest...

During registration or when filling out my profile data, I appear to have told the truth.

See attached image.

General Discussion / Welcome, new people!

This site has been around for more than 2 years. We've linked to it in nearly every guitar thread since, though few people joined. That's fine. It's still here.

As you can see, it's set up to handle pretty much anything you'd have to talk about with regards to musicianship. The site is here for you. Use it accordingly.

Once you've made a few posts, you'll have 'invites' you can give away. If you need any invitations before that, just ask myself or @COF. We'll get you squared away. Just remember that the main subject here is music and musicianship. This is *not* a free-speech zone and we have a parent hosting company that we're beholden to. That means we've got to have rules.

Anyhow, make yourselves at home. We house the archives here, so you can re-listen to anything that was previously shared in the FNGT. We also have infrastructure for everything else music-related, including a marketplace and I can do appraisals rather well - though those sections of the site are pretty much ghost towns. They still exist and will likely continue to exist.

At some point, depending on how things go, I may open up registrations to the general public - but that doesn't seem like a requirement at this time. The invite-only system has worked REALLY WELL at keeping the riffraff away.

As always, rock on.

General Discussion / V is closing and the FNGT is moving...
« on: December 22, 2020, 08:42:38 AM »

Sadly and unfortunately, Voat is closing. Because of this, we will be hosting our Friday Night Guitar Thread on Thursday night, at about the same time. We're aiming for 20:00 Eastern, but it may be slightly later - or even slightly earlier.

Then, we're going to rock out the clock as far as we can. It's Christmas Eve, so we'll have to see what kind of traffic we get. I don't expect it to be all that busy on Friday morning and Voat is slated to close at 12:00 PST.

Then, we're *probably* going to do it all over again on Friday night at Poal!

Please, please try to attend. We'll be discussing our contingency plans. There will be laughter, joy, and maybe even a few quiet tears.

It's okay. It really is. The Voat FNGT had a good run, going somewhere near 3.5 years. It isn't going to die. It's just moving to a new location.

We FNGT coordinators thank you for past contributions and invite (and encourage) you to get your account name registered at Poal where we'll be keeping the thread rocking

General Discussion / V's availability sucks...

I'm cautiously considering the idea of both posting here more frequently *and* possibly opening the invitation system up to some of the better behaved goats.

I definitely value feedback.

This site is running just fine. Not even a countries database error popping up!!!

We have an availability of about 100%, where Voat is probably down around 75% when it isn't cheating and showing a cached page to people who aren't logged in.

Yeah, I definitely value feedback.

General Discussion / Testing!

Test, just to see...

General Discussion / Quick update...
« on: October 02, 2019, 12:27:52 PM »
Just to make sure the info is out there, I have rented a suite and adjoining suite down here. This way, I have somewhere to go that is consistent and I can leave stuff here. So, I went shopping yesterday to ensure we can still make and record music while we're down here. We got a car ordered, so that we'll have transportation while we're down here.

So, the place is leased for a year. That gives at least an approximation of the length of intent. Over this year, I would expect to see me down this way fairly often.

Also, it's cold and rainy back home. Down here, it's a hot day in the 90s.

General Discussion / V is acting up...
« on: September 27, 2019, 22:47:19 PM »
I don't suppose anybody thought to just go here?

(It is actually one of the original reasons that it is here.)

General Discussion / I will be landing shortly.

Then it's a quick trip to the hotel and hopefully some food.

Anyhow, I'll be posting more here than on Voat, at least more salient things. I've got limited online time as I'll be busy. A lot of us came this time, but I'm hoping I'm not obligated to entertain them. If I am, then that's even less time. Still, the time will be well spent and (obviously) it is time I want to spend. I am pretty sure the car rental company left us two sets of keys in their box thingy. I hope so, at any rate.

General Discussion / I see COF has been busy!
« on: September 23, 2019, 19:39:32 PM »
I got some notifications of being mentioned and see @COF has been busy updating the archives.

I ain't writing you a speech, but I am gonna say thanks!

General Discussion / Well, I am ready!

This was the least productive day in the studio, pretty much for well over a decade. I'm actually more productive in my own studio at home.

But... We had a good time!

We've got to go out for some food, but we should be there sometime *around* the right time.

General Discussion / Just to make sure we're on the same page...

I will not be opening the FNGT this week. Next week doesn't look good, either! The following week is right out.

Then I'll probably be home for a while. I'm almost done adventurin'.

General Discussion / Eureka!

General Discussion / Continuing with a theme...
« on: September 10, 2019, 11:37:54 AM »

Yesterday, I showed off my "luxurious" travel. I did, too. I contacted both @Nadeshda and @crazy_eyes off site and said that I was on here showing off.

In my defense, it was a successful gambit! Both of 'em came over and said hello.

This morning, we acquired a car (specifically a loaner from a nearby dealership) and ate a delicious, hearty breakfast. We had our breakfast delivered right to this hotel room.

Except, well, it's a bit of a misnomer to call it a "hotel room." If it  were strictly up to me, I'd be in a cheap Econo Lodge. However, the missus will be along in 'a few days.' She'll be along largely because I bribed her with food and creature comforts. Do note that she hasn't actually reserved a specific flight time, or anything like that. The company we've been using prefers a 24 hour notice, and can't commit to anything with less than 24 hour notice. Well, they can, but boy don't they raise the price!

Anyhow, we are in a fancy hotel room. Wanna see? Open the first attachment!

The bathroom is even kinda fancy. I have a choice of a bidet or a regular toilet, for starters. But, it also includes fancy boxes for the various toiletries you might see at other hotels.

See the second attachment! (I'm not sure the picture will be clear enough to read them all, but you can get the general idea.)

And, the last attachment is my bed. The couch pulls out, if you move stuff around. But, this is the bed where I sleep. It's pretty comfy!

For reasons too mundane to get into, I don't get baby-time until like 15:00. So, we jammed for a while and we're just going to let room service feed us lunch. But, now you can see a bit of what we see when we look around. It's pretty fancy. There's even a kitchenette, but it's not like the kitchenette you get in a cheap hotel. It's got like a dishwasher, real stove, etc..

It also has bottles of water,  just tiny 12 oz bottles, for $2 each. It's not even fancy water. It's like cheap spring  water, Dasani stuff I think it's spelled.

Site Questions / DB Error...
« on: September 09, 2019, 18:49:55 PM »
I'm not 100% certain, but I have removed "location" as a profile field entry. As it was looking for "countries", that's probably a good place to start.

Alternatively, it's just the hosting company having issues with DB connectivity at an untimely point. Or it's a country flags type of mod, but I'm not seeing one installed.
