Website Outage, February 4-5, 2018

Either yesterday or today, February 5, 2018, we experienced some kind of total website outage.  We don't yet know what happened or why.  All I can say is that the last full database backup we had was January 5 2018, so that is where we are now.  For those of you who posted after that up until now, our apologies for lost posts---please post again.  The same goes with probably several hundred new members!  You may need to re-register.

Happy Yule, 2017! New Version v4.1.8 Available December 25.

The very best of holidays to all of you in our community!  We hope it's a good one.  Masahiro has prepared a gift for us, a new version 4.1.8.  The changelog is here.

There are bug fixes and several improvements. Thank you, Masahiro!  And he hints that there will be v4.2 betas coming in the new year sometime. So again, Happy Holidays!

November 11, 2017: Website Problems Mostly Solved

Looks like most of our recent issues are solved, but we will continue to do some work to debug the website.  Most of this had to do with some updates that we needed to do.  None of it had anything to do with our software, however, so rest assured there will have been no issues with the downloads.


November 7, 2017: Website Problems

We seem to be having some website problems; I'm looking into it but not sure at this time what the problem is. Hope to have things sorted out soon!

Happy Autumn LightZoners

No news to report, but wanted to make sure everyone understands we are still active. (read more...)

Happy Summer Solstice 2017

Just a quick note to say Hi to the community, hope all of you are well.  Doug is traveling and is off the grid, and I have new and important work responsibilities that are keeping me very busy. More after break...

Happy Yultide to All, and Happy New Year

We wish all our membership the very best for the holiday season.  May you enjoy the new year photographically.  Hope you got something new to enjoy it with!

Happy 5th Birthday To Us!

This month 5 years ago Doug Pardee brought our website live, on November 17th, 2011, and after a few glitches we were running smoothly by the 20th with 50 members signed up.  As of today we now have over 125,000 members.  And once again, we are amazed.  I know of no other rescue project for orphaned software with a success like ours.  Congratulations to all of us.  I'm having a scotch right now!

Congratulations to Masahiro and Aya!

Please join me in congratulating our lead developer Masahiro and his lovely wife Aya on the birth of their baby daughter Kaede!  She was born October 21.  Mother and baby are doing well, and Masahiro....well, he is doing as well as any father can be expected ;-}  He says he is sorry (!) for "being quiet for a while", and that maybe forum members have been wondering what has been going on.  Kaede is adorable, but because of our picture blackout I won't post her photo, so you'll have to take my word for it.  Always great to welcome a new member!

New Mac Download Packages Available, And Also Linux And Now Also Windows

Masahiro has developed new Mac download packages that have fixed some problems users experienced.  Changelog is here . He has prepared Linux packages as well, but has had a little trouble with Windows this time.  Now Sorted!  Thanks also to Ron Goldthwaite for testing and finding some errors.  Nice to see you back, Ron!
