    Default Pictures of us and our planes

    Hi Gang,
    I am wired in a funny way (ask anyone who knows me!), I like to put a face to the name.
    I'll start with a pic of me with my 55 PA22-150, "One For Papa"

    How do you post a picture if you don't have a web page? When I tried to post one, it asked for the URL.

    Thanks

    I'm not too sure I have this figured out. If the picture posts then I guess I did it right.

    Default How to post a pitchur:

    OK, several folks are challenged with posting a pic, I assume you have a digital camera and load purty pitchurs on your computer, so here's how the site works (if you still have trouble find a middle schooler, they do this all the time!):
    1) Find a purty pitchur of you with your plane.
    2) Open the pitchur in photo editor or paint, and use the resize tool to resize it so it's about the size of a postcard, approx 4x5" on your screen. Edit the image, not the window! The picture should now be <100Kb in size to allow it to post on the forum.
    3) Save as "name and n number", ie, "Larry and 47Bravo", only your name and your plane's N-number. Save it as a .jpg (file type).
    4) Click "Post Reply" at left of forum page (not the usual "Post Quick Reply" at bottom) and write your life story, then in the Additional Options section below your life story, click "Manage Attachments", "Browse", and select the image file you made in step 3. It will all make sense as you follow the guide.
    5) Check all your spelling is good, then click "Submit Reply" -- I don't know if the pic shows in "Preview Post" so don't bother.
    6) Admire your purty pitchur on the internets!

    Nice photo of your great machine Stephen.

    Have you ever thought of painting the stays in front of you near the windscreen (nice flat winscreen ) flat black? In brighter light the white tends to reflect and effect your vision, with them black you tend not to notice them.

    That's me chasing down the photographer from Plane and Pilot who left his flash unit in my airplane. He took my picture while I was chasing him.

    It would have been a better picture if my mug was not cluttering it up.

    Glen, good idea. I must confess I had not noticed them in flight. But, I'm the type of person who never even cleans my reading glasses and thinks that it's just getting dark.

    Let's see; I've got to repalce my skylight today, replace rudder pedals tomorrow, annual next week, replace T&B with turn coordinator next, repain my wings and cowl.......then I'll paint the stays. 6 more weeks till retirement, then I'll have time!

    Mine's a conscientious bird. She likes to keep her nose to the grind stone instead of up in the air. Besides, she's not too good for anyone! Also, she dressed up in her Sunday best to have her picture taken .

    Stephan, I can't take credit for Glenn's idea but I would go one further, I wrapped my cabane struts in lace-on vinyl steering wheel covers, they don't roast the meat off your hand on a hot day and look real swanky.

    I tried to upload a pic, but the system tells me that it isn't allowed. Don't know where to go from here. Says: open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/usr/local/psa/home/vhosts/shortwing.org/httpdocs/forum/attachments/e3bc537881706eb5866ee964c90a56eb) is not within the allowed path(s):

    The pic size is 4X3.something and 34.5 KB in size. If anyone has any advice, I'll give it another try.

    Default N8141C Larry Portouw (can't upload image)

    I get two php errors when attempting to upload an image- both have to do with the image not being in the allowed file path(?). Looks like something is broke on the list end- the bath on the error is on the server.

    Default Inserting Images with post

    Be sure to use the POST REPLY button to the left of last post (not the POST QUICK REPLY button at bottom center.)
    Verify at the bottom left of page in "Posting Rule" you have permission to post attachments, etc.
    Presize your images to a reasonable size, <200K jpg, not a 3Meg hi-res image.
    In the new "Reply to Thread" window, click the yellow "Insert Image" icon (looks like a little yellow postcard.)
    Tell something about yourself, home location & airport, a couple different views of your plane etc.
    If you still have problems, contact the webmaster using "contact us" at bottom right of page.

    Well, call me blind, but I can't find a "post reply" button anywhere on this page or any other page. At the bottom center of the "quick reply" box are, on the left, "Post Quick Reply" and on the right "Go Advanced". This works the same in Netscape (my browser) or Internet Explorer. When you "Go Advanced" it opens a reply dialog box with an "additional options" box that has controls to select and upload attached images. When I select the images, around 25 kb each time I have attempted, it gives me the same error reply that Larry is getting. So, I don't have the answer, but it either isn't working now, or it needs some simplification for morons like me to use it.

    OK, Glenn, the reason that I wasn't finding the "reply" button is that I didn't have it in Hybrid display mode. I found that, changed it to Hybrid and when you hit reply it is the same as the go advanced that I did before and the results are the same.

    Looks like the photo feature is either restored (Thanks Mithc!) or Frank is some kind of computer guru to post a pic on the site after all others had failed.

    Default No Gurus here

    Hi Glenn
    I tried in vain for a couple of nights to upload photos from my drive and finally gave up. The next thing I did was to upload a couple of photos to my free web space (provided by sponsor when you have a free web page) using an FTP program. The files I uploaded were referenced (pointed to using the URL location of the files) in the add photo box that comes up when you click on the yellow icon (looks like a postcard) just above the reply to message box. It actually worked pretty easy after I quit trying to include the wrong directory name in the address to locate my files! Did you happen to notice the red X where my picture was supposed to be that was on the page for a day or so. That meant that the SWP server could not locate the file.
    When you get a chance go to the main SWP page and notice that on the photo gallery main page the Vagabond thumbnail is no longer there. I tried twice to upload a picture there and only managed to get the photo description to appear and erased the main page thumbnail in the process??? Hope this info helps.

    The only photos I have on the web so far are the one that is two posts before this one and the ones that you see here. I am adding the photos below of PA 15 to 17 conversion today. More to come later.

    Default PA 15/17 conversion

    Thanks guys for the nice compliments.
    I will post a photo of the plane when I got it and you wont believe the transformation. I found it in a hanger in Louisiana with the wing spar cracked / bent, one gear folded under the fuslage and prop strike damage. Results from the dreaded ground loop. What you see is the result of two years of rebuild from the ground up and several improvements (conversion to 17). Now the plane is a 2006 model
