Re: Can't reach site when using VPN

I've just tried Montreal, California, US Midwest and Melbourne AU as purported VPN origins, and had no problems. C. Thanks for the update Chris! I'm still curious to know if Ira (aih) can connect from the US regions where he was originally having problems. @aih please update us when you get a chance!

Re: Can't reach site when using VPN

Ok guys...go ahead and try to load the site again from a VPN connection where you previously had problems and post results here.

Hopefully this resolves the connectivity issue and makes it easier to access the site.

Re: Can't reach site when using VPN

Hey guys...I have a feeling this is due to the SMF server not having an SSL certificate setup. I'm going to activate SSL to see if this resolves your VPN connectivity issue. Will update you again soon.

Best,
Vince

Re: News

Glad you guys found the feature and are able to use it effectively. It's not the easiest option to find but once you get the hang of it, it's pretty easy to use. The cool thing is, all the images get stored on the shavemyface.com webserver which has unlimited storage through the Dreamhost plan that ...

Re: Home Page and Gallery

Thanks for the feedback guys. I'm definitely leaning towards nuking. If I go that route I'll make a backup of all the images just in case.

Thanks all. Will be in touch again soon.

Re: Home Page and Gallery

I'll look into options this weekend and will let you all know my assessment soon. Just curious...is there value in preserving the old gallery or can it be nuked? I only ask because it would be much easier to start fresh with a newer solution. If folks desire to keep the old gallery AND maintain the ...

Re: The new heading

I'm going to make it a plain SMF once I get around to taking the old forum completely offline (it's still technically alive for the moment).

I only put the "2" there as way differentiate the site from the previous incarnation of the forum. It's purely stylistic and will be removed eventually.

Re: The new heading

Actually, the way it's written now works out to Shave My Face Face. If you enclose SMF in parentheses and leave the exponent outside, it gets much worse. Multiplying (SMF)x(SMF) gives you S^2 x M^2 x F^2 or Shave Shave My My Face Face. Try typing that into a browser. :shock: I suppose "SMF II" migh...

They aren't lost, just misplaced. All of his posts are here but in cases where he linked to them from other posts, those links are now broken due to the change in forum URL. They can all be fixed in due time.
