Thanks for the clarification. I recognize that it was time to consolidate servers and bring all of the material into one system to preclude losses such as we have had in the past. I also recognize that this represented a lot of effort on your part as well as work by others to get this set up for the rest of us. I appreciate those efforts, and am only trying to clarify the situation with regard to member's Homepage files.
I am happy to hear that the Homepage material is retrievable, but it seems from what I understand that the new system precludes user Homepages? Am I correct in that? So, in terms of the SC website, the materials on member Homepages are "lost" to the SC membership (but not the owners). While I still retain my personal files (on my own computer) of the photos of the Jimmy Carter Commissioning, the NR-1, the SSBN TAB book, the GUPPY Boat, Russian Julliet class SSG, & Albacore photos, and the Azorian research materials, they will no longer be available to the membership through a homepage that I can set up on the SC web site.
I confess I was not aware of the imminent demise of the Homepages. Upon inspecting prior SCR issues through last year, the only announcement I found about possible changes to Member Homepages was in June:
Consolidation of ISPs is a primary budget consideration and may preclude the retention of some of the existing website features such as the member homepages.
If there were other announcements, then I missed them.
