In Topic: iPage website hosting?

09 July 2014 - 08:44 PM

I've had an ipage site for several years and have no complaints.  Email has been reliable and I've had no service interruptions.  Be aware that the introductory cheap price doesn't stick around....at the first renewal you are full rates.  As a result, I suggest buying into the longest initial term available.

Have you used the database or connected to quickbooks? 

I've deployed mysql and joomla to the site (and gallery....and a few other packages), but not connected external systems to it.  I see no reason why it'd be a problem though.

 

Quickbooks (in my not-so-humble-opinion) is a PITA.  I've given up attempting to build any kind of interface into it.

In Topic: Swiftsure or Driftsure?

27 May 2014 - 03:06 AM

We had a good Flattery race.  It took me 20 years to forget the horror of my last driftsure and to sign up to race again.  After this one, I may be foolish enough to play next year.  We had a reasonably uneventful race except for sailing through a kelp forest (the backdown looks like it cost us a place) as well as a trip up the rig to retrieve a lost halyard just before the turning mark.  Wind of course softened through the night and it was getting progressively worse after we were past race rocks trying to find a fast-ish track to the finish.


In Topic: Southern Strait 2014 - 46th annual classic race

I was happy to see those results after some of the discouraging scores over the winter.  Glad to see you guys starting to dial in the machine!

 

 

That's a very healthy looking entry list. 

Thanks Bob - Ty the race chair and the committee worked very hard keeping the numbers up; and getting people the registered early. It's been a problem forever but apparently it worked!

Bump again.

 

Now 92 confirmed entries: http://www.wvyc.ca/D...id=304472&vnf=1

.....hmmm,,don't see Occam listed  :mellow:  :rolleyes:

Your a cheeky man! lol.

 

 

Please note that Occam's recorded a perfect score of all firsts for the Opener regatta, with a throw out of 2nd.

 

Not bad for a whole new team on the boat.  We have worked very hard over the winter to recruit crew and get the boat up to speed

 

We didn't feel the boat would be ready for Straits, so opted out some time ago.  There is still some work to be done to recover from a few years of neglect.  But we are registered for the the long course as Swiftsure, and are looking forward to it.
