Does one have to be a paid member to upload work? I looked but didn't see anything but then again, I could have missed something as well.

Hi everyone, I'm thinking that I should give an update to what's happening with me in being a part of this community.

I've been around now for 15 years and for the most part have enjoyed the experience.

Unfortunately things have changed recently that has impaired that experience.

It seemed to have started back when I was awarded the "master skinner" level. I assume in part that the bump up was to entice me to start making my blinds compatible with Win10. I also feel that the low ratings on my blinds is a criticism of not doing so.

I have mentioned the drive bys to management and they have assured me that the individual doing this, does this to everyone. I haven't seen any evidence of this so I'm not sure that I believe that.

As these rating attacks are systemic they violate TOS for harassment.

"stalk" or otherwise harass another;

I'll admit that the down rating are annoying and as a result impair my enjoyment of the site, which also violates TOS.

Interfere with another member's use and enjoyment of the Service or another entity's use and enjoyment of similar services.

Bottom line for me is;

I'm not upgrading to 10 anything, primarily because SKS10 does not support UIS2 frames. statement may not be accurate.

I'm going to continue making and uploading Win7 only blinds because it is one of my hobbies and enjoy doing so.

I'm limiting my visits to the site to weekends only.

I wish to thank everyone that has supported my efforts, it is very much appreciated.

Thank you all, gmc2

Read an article that the FBI is requesting that people with routers turn off and turn back on your router. Appears that some Russian hackers have gained access to 500,000 routers worldwide. We did this and I got an error message regarding another computer with the identical IP address. Not sure what this was about but if I interpret the article correctly, my our router may have been impacted???

Got a message from T-mobile today indicating that I should add an additional security measure to ensure that my phone is not compromised and personal information accessed for illegal intent. 

I still don't understand the whole thing and the woman I talked with at T-mobile had a high pitched shrill voice and talked way too fast. I really didn't understand her. I'll call back tomorrow, hopefully I'll get someone more helpful.

Anyway, here is the article that explains all of this.,news-26574.html

Attempting to upload a blind but the buttons for locating/uploading are missing.

Using Chrome

Google Chrome is up to date
Version 62.0.3202.62 (Official Build) (64-bit)
I'm noticing some other minor issues as well. Default settings that are off and reading posts that do not untick the read icon? just mentioning.

This is kind of a second home for me and at some point I won't be here.

I've been diagnosed with a malignant esophageal tumor. We're waiting on the biopsy report to proceed but from what I read this is a pretty aggressive cancer with low to medium life expectancy. I'm pretty zen about the whole thing and at least will have an opportunity to put my life in order.

Other than a difficulty in swallowing, weight loss (which is a sort of a blessing) and some regurgitation issues, I feel pretty good, at the moment.

Anyhow, bummer and "oh shit".

the log off at the top of the forum page does not appear to be working. One can still find a log off option that works but this particular one doesn't.

With the repeal of the internet privacy safeguards I've been thinking of switching over to an anonymous browser and TOR has been recommended as fulfilling that nook.

Are there any TOR users here and if so, what can you tell me about TOR.

Okay, just to be clear. Yes, I deleted all my previous windowblinds. Why, it really doesn't matter.

As I've always stated, skinning is a hobby and just because I haven't uploaded anything doesn't mean that I stopped making blinds. I have at least 15 completed on the shelf.

I've decided to upload again but changing how I do things. I'll upload one a month and delete the previous one when I do. It just makes it easier on my end, keeps my blood pressure at a tolerable level and for those that like my blinds, an opportunity to acquire a freebie.

Please, try not to judge, be nice and drive friendly ;-)

Oh, and I turn 70 in a few days, damn that feels quite old.
