Wow!

I rarely give "helpfuls" since the way the forum is setup here they have limited meaning (see multiple other discussions) but I wish I could give you 2 helpfuls for your documentation of this project.

Again...

Wow!

Super job!  You have raised the bar for all of us!  The appliance module mod is great.  Your drape control mod is great.  Photos are some of the best I've seen.  Excellent diagrams.  You must have put as much work into documenting as you did into designing and implementing.

...You have raised the bar for all of us!  ...Photos are some of the best I've seen...

Unless rms59 is constantly REFRESHING this thread himself ::) ;), I believe that he has also raised the bar on the LIMIT of bytes per hour (i.e. so *MANY* gorgeous photos) that a GeoCities site can support when dealing with the X10 Community:o

This limit:
did not cross my mind at all :-[ when Oldtimer PM'd me yesterday that he couldn't see the photos and felt severely deprived of the joy and excitement that the first wave of viewers were experiencing. :D

bcondemi used ImageShack® for his [User Idea] ULTIMATE DUAL ANTENNA Setup for CM15A  (Read 1200 times) , so it appears that future queries for recommendations for sites to store images included in X10 Community articles will need to be prefixed by the question - "How *MANY*?" :P

Any other recommendations besides ImageShack® ?


rms59,

Would you please visit your GeoCities site and capture and display these two charts:


I, for one, am VERY curious as to how much bandwidth your article utilized in the past 24 hours. ???

[Ah, they're back (for me) - let's see - 23 photos at an average of 75KB each is 1,725KB | 1.725MB x 65 views = 112.125MB transferred, just for the photos. So, what's the limit? ??? 4.2MB/hr -> 2.434 views/hr :-X There's our answer...]

Thanks Dick! :)

I hate things that don't work right so I'm presently uploading all the images to Imageshack and redoing my links in the event a host switch is needed...

Thanks for the comments. Much appreciated.

Very professional graphics. Nice job, and maybe the record 'helpfuls' per 'posts' ratio on the site.

Thanks for bridging the gulf of understanding through mental mapping.

Ok.... The images are now stored on ImageShack. I saved some bandwidth by making some images clickable thumbnails. Hope this does it for you guys.
