Site News - 2005:
2005 - Sorry for the rant but.... Because I'm getting
a little tired that the only area of the site that getting over used
(lots of bulk downloads...EVERYDAY!!!) is the sound clip page, they will
be going oh hiatus for a couple months until I can implement something
better. I hate to having to do this, but wave files have gotten to
be the bulk the traffic on the site... it's gotten rather silly when we
cant's generate a Meg's worth of email and forum posts in a month, but
we have no problem consistently generating a couple Gig's worth of wave
file transfers. If anyone's got any suggestions or comments
2005 - Repairs and corrections continue...
most of the uploads, blueprints, waves, wallpapers, icons, etc., are
working, but I still have some fixes to make during the week. To
all those that may have problems downloading, I apologize but I've
had a lot of problems with off site linking to files so I've had to
implement some simple redirection and rejection scripts to help prevent
some of this. The current GQ screen saver has a problem with
Windows XP that I'll be looking into and there is a second screensaver,
that works great under XP, that's a couple weeks from being done.
New Forum is up! This is a big change from the old forum
and offers some great new features! Check it out and Let
me know what you think, any suggestions you have, or if you run
into any problems. It's new so I'm still working the bugs
2005 - Sorry for the glitches, but as there's are
differences in how the new host handles my old cgi scripts,
all downloads on the site will be down till sometime next weekend when I have a chance reconfigure the site and the scripts.
2005 - Well, the sites back up on the new
host!, Bad news is that the old GQ Forums are gone... not like they'd
been used much, but I'll have a replacement up in week or so :)
Because of the expense of
the new PC, in order to keep the Questarian going for another year
(our hosting and URL renewal period is during September) , I've had to
cancel the retro project and the "free memberships" programs
till mid 2006.
2005 - Sorry about the length of time it
took me to get back to the site... I've been having all sort of problems
(and lots of reloads) with my old PC, and if finally terminally
failed... It literally "burnt out." Well now I have a
nice new PC (an a much large credit card bill) and I'll be doing a lot
of updates to the site over the next couple weeks. I apologies
to everyone I wasn't able to email back.
2005 - Due to a great deal of linking to
files on the Questarian, I've had to alter the way downloads are
handled. All major downloads are now going through a
script which verifies that the request came from a page on Questarian rather
then a link from another site. Unfortunately, this it's not a perfect
solution. With the wave files they'll play fine, but you wouldn't be
able (in windows) to right click and save it correctly. I'm going
to zip all the files next weekend and that should fix a lot of the wav
I'm sorry, but it's
going to have to stay this way until I can find a better solution... or
I take the sound files off the site completely... too many leeches!
The new download
method may not be 100%
compatible with everyone, so if you are having a problem downloading
files, please contact me.
Please tell me which browser (Internet Explorer, Netscape,
Firefox, etc) and which ISP (AOL, Earthlink, Comcast, Etc.) that you are
2005 - Had some software problems last month
(I hate FrontPage 2000)... If anyone has a better option to publish web
pages please let me know :)

last month or so, be sure to out the latest sequel
