    Summertime Blues

    "Summertime Blues" was originally recorded by Eddie Cochran in 1958, Blue Cheer recorded it for their debut album "Vincebus Eruptum" in 1968. This was one of the first Albums albums I bought, Sad to say the very first was Sonny and Cher (1965 I think) prior to '68 most of the music I bought was singles that had been removed from Jukeboxes at ten cents a record. 1968 marked a big change in my life and my taste in music. I had tried weed, but didn't care for it 1968 brought Psychedelics and amphetamines . Life was never the same

    Some of the changes

    @Rude: I will see what I can do. I'm sure I can change the limits. Another "side effect" of upgrades is it, often, changes settings. I think more than 60 second clips is possible I will get back to you. @ everybody: Thank you for your comments, I need to know what you like and don't like. Then I can do what I like.

    You mean like darkstarorchestra.net? Looks more like a Halloween theme. My goal was a functional site that is easy to look at. In the past you have always had a choice of themes. Unfortunately at this time there is only a choice between two, this one and the Standard IBS theme. Since Invision plans another major upgrade in the near future I don't intend to build or buy any additional themes at this time. This "off the shelf" theme cost $20.00 A custom built theme costs $400.00

    Some of the changes

    Here is a list of some of the changes made this morning: New Theme. This theme (skin) was designed by a third party. I have designed them myself in the past, however, every time there was an upgrade it fucked with my themes to the point they didn't look right anymore. Or worse didn't work at all any customization's I made would disappear. This theme is up-gradable. There are things I don't like about it (some text hard to read) but I intend to work on that with the designer. Video System has been updated, hopefully it will start being used! Any questions you may have feel free to send me a PM. Member Map has been updated ChatBox installed replacing the "ShoutBox" one of the features that quit working with new forum versions. Added the Now Listening Forum. this replaces the now listening thread. The Forum should be a big improvement over a Great Thread. Renamed the Open Discussions Forum to the Random Thoughts Forum. Thanks, Rude, hope ya don't mind me using your idea. Thank You all for your patience, Comments and concerns are welcome.

    Spam defense caught another one

    Duhh - Took awhile to get that one. Funny.
  15. While not infallible, the Spam Defense feature does a pretty good job of catching spammers before they get in. Most of the time I don't have to do anything, they are automatically banned (depending on there "Spam score). This one name "Виктория" (Like that wouldn't raise a flag) only had a score of 2. Виктория translates to Victoria. While suspicious i thought "well, it is possible to have fans n Russia". Preliminary searches didn't find anything about the username or email address and the IP is for St Petersburg, RU - It seemed that they weren't trying to hide the fact.. And then, I did a search on just gotmail.com, stopforumspam.com 's database showed over 36.000 results. hasta la vista, Baby (arnold voice). I know some of you remember the early days of the forums. Without going into a (too much of) a history lesson, we have come a long way : Voyforums free but ad based, mostly adverisements and Nasty Trolls, next PHPBB3 much better, free, no advertisement but not many security features - tons of spams! So we decided to go with Invision Power Board a paid forum that had better security features (harder for spambots to register, requiring admin approval and email verification). Still there were days when I had to ban as many as 300 attempts a day. Through the years IPB has improved on security and the registration process to where Admin approval is no longer necessary (In most cases). Spambots just don't get through, occasionally a spammer will get past and I am warned (like today). Less frequently one will sneak in and post When this happens I really appreciate being told about it. Speaking of Security I will be upgrading to the latest version (I'm two behind) that include a security patch. I will do it late tonight (about midnight Eastern time) we will be offline for a few minutes while I back up the databases for the Forums and Starbase and install the upgrade.
