Re: Electric gate remote

If your gate system uses static security keys (probably an older system) and if the remote that you bought is a "learning" remote, it should be possible to train the new remote with the code from an old remote, the instructions for this should have come with the new remote. Rolling-code remotes cann...

Re: This is the kind of crap we got from members who tried to poison the forum

There seems to be some misunderstanding of basic concepts. A PM on this site can only be read by the sender and the recipient. Moderators and Admins cannot read other peoples PMs. As the technical administrator of the site, I (and only I) could directly access the database and read them, but I don't...

I wish you all the best with it Mike, but I always thought that moderators were invited rather than volunteered. :)
That would normally be my preferred strategy, but there is no time for arm-twisting when recruiting a whole team in a hurry.

Re: The forum will have a new owner soon

It seems that I have drawn the short straw... Nothing will change immediately, but I would like some volunteers to help with moderating tasks on the forum. You don't need to be glues to the screen 24 hours a day, but you do need to be a regular visitor. Thanks to Mysty and ATS for keeping it running...

Re: Posting a video

This site is not currently configured to allow uploading of videos. It is technically possible to do so, but requires a few configuration changes on the server. Videos also take up quite a lot of storage space on the server, and that may eventually require a more expensive hosting package (not to me...

Re: Just had a post deleted

If it’s not important to you then I will just delete your old account for you. It is now possible for an administrator to merge 2 accounts into one. Let's hope it's not too late; if an old account has been deleted, can it be restored and merged with the 'new' one? Unfortunately not (at least with c...

It wouldn’t let me log in with my ‘old’ name, so I had to change it to get on!

Re: Orange Cloud Closing

There is almost certainly a way to dump a complete copy of your email account to bulk storage, either online or local, like a USB key. You don't need to sort or select specific items to backup, it is only insurance. The best solution depends on how your email account can be accessed. Some email prov...

Re: Orange Cloud Closing

I would have to advise that if using an email account for long-term storage of important information, it would be a very good idea to make a backup copy of all the data, either on a service run by an independent company, or on a format that you can physically control and protect. Without a backup th...
