blog-0514909001327000832.jpgIts been a few days since our last entry and we thought we would introduce one of the new features of the board to you ....... "shared media"

You know how it is, you are happily adding stuff to the forum and you think .... "mmm, I already uploaded an image or file that I need to add in here too, or that would be perfect for this thread ...."

In the last version of this software, you would need to go hunting on the site, browse your hard drive or perform a google search to try and find that file or image then upload it or link to it and all that palaver ... but no more !!! To help you with all of this in the new forum comes the "My Media" link.

Next time you are typing a forum reply, have a look up to the button bar and you should see this one nestled in amongst things


Clicking on it will bring up a popup called your Media Library .....


You can add anything you previously put into a post as an attachment .....




You can add a link to a photo album you uploaded .....



You can add any individual picture from a gallery .....



You can add a link to an event .....



You can add a link to a blog entry .....



You can add a link to a downloadable file .....



Happy Media Sharing !!!!

    • Setting up a new tax regime in Scotland is going to be something of a jolly for computer programmers.
      Each employer will have to have two schemes, one for those who live this side of the border and one for those who live outside Scotland. Tax offices both sides of the " Mason Dixon line" , will have to be careful they apply the right rates. Like myself my tax is controlled by the office in Bootal, and my wife is subject to the office in Portsmouth. I suppose it is simple to apply a post code to see what tax regime to apply.
      Will the very wealthy suddenly become domiciled in England to avoid being nailed by higher taxes. Many of the top earners do have homes either side of the border, I know a rich farmer who is " something in the City ", he spends time in London and lives in Scotland. What is to stop him now saying he lives in London and his Scottish address is just a holiday home.
      It can end up a nightmare for people in the border regions who live in Gretna but work in Carlisle. Like a lot of aspects in the government of Scotland there is more to life than the simplistic approach.
    • Thanks Scotty. appreciated. 
    • Davie - or whoever - let us know what if anything CTO can do to help in terms of info, distributing forms for download, or as mentioned before about having the "club" section within the site. I would probably get more involved if I lived closer, and I was hoping there might have been a meeting while I was back in December but sadly not .... but happy to do what I can from afar ...... I believe the new version of the forum software (currently in beta stage) may even allow membership fees to be paid online and sent onwards to a third party (ie. not through us) but I do have to get more info on that as if thats possible we could extend that service to any (legitimate) groups who may need to have a membership page and an easy way to collect membership dues, send renewals etc.  
    • I think there are at least three sources of faults or weaknesses here. I remain in no doubt that Christie herself has to a large extent been the architect of her own downfall, probably because she skates so close to opponents that she puts herself in danger of either falling or being impeded or fouling someone else. Three consecutive "misfortunes" was beginning to stretch credibility just a bit but when that moved on to six out of six, then surely there must be a root cause to this. Six catastrophes in six events just stretches credibility a bit too far. Then you have to look critically at the nature of the sport, including some of the observations made by DD in the previous post. Clearly the situation is not helped by a scenario which almost creates the temptation to take risks, hence compounding any weaknesses on the part of the competitor. Finally, Team GB management have at least two big questions to answer - why did they allow her to do that car crash of an interview after the 500 which will haunt her for the rest of her career and her life, and why did they allow her even to take to the ice for the third event, the 1000m, when it was clear that her right ankle was in a pretty bad way? The second question there also applies broadly to Radcliffe at the 2004 Athens Olympic marathon, and one of the answers is probably related to our medals-driven funding system. There are huge pressures applied to our various sports to produce medals which are, in effect, bought with Lottery money. This tends to run the show and forces governing body officials into making bizarre decisions in order to protect their future funding. It's not just football that has a very ambiguous relationship with money.
