    I volunteered for the first meetup where I ran out of battery again on my gear. Lucky that I have a battery stick that temporarily charge up my camera for few shots. More of the Action#1 meetup in this Flickr Album.


    Back side of the postcard has a nice inverted graphics with letters for 'Hear Our Voices" and many participants wrote multiple cards to many of the republicans that may share the burden of the country. I dislike my 2nd candidate as I wrote to the Paul Ryan with some strong words on his compromising his initial negative reactions to our elected president.

    I am going again on next Tuesday with a camera and video for the Action #2 meetup where participants huddle up for strategies and planning -- https://www.womensmarch.com/ Please look for a local one that is close to you and be active in this movement. You don't want to be in the wrong side of the movement or be indifferent in the movement. We are in it all together and united for the good of our country moving forward.

  5. Hey look the site is alive again. ITS ALIIIIVEEE!!! ;)
    Ooh, it uses BBCode markup now too. Much nicer than before.

    I spent the week in Michigan helping parents out. My dad is disabled and my mom fell and broke her arm so they needed help. We had to move dad into a home (it was time) which made it kind an emotionally hard week. All for the best I think but it was tough.
    Anyway, I wasn't taking portraits of my ailing parents. I would just shoot when I was able to slip away for a little walk in the Michigan woods from time to time.

    I hope more people participate with this new user interface that look like other forums that I go.

    Cheers,

  7. It actually works really well. I wish to confirm that I can modify the above existing post tomorrow. It used to be a pain not able to modify after a new post.

    Can't help in posting more as I am very excited with the update from Photo.net. Re-edit is allowed but I don't know if I can update in 12 hours, will try it tomorrow morning.

    Cheers,
    Hin
     
  9. It is sort of sad that everything works great in the site total rehaul but the restriction on edit still applies. No edit is allowed after a short period as in 10 minutes after posting. I don't see the purpose of the restriction in the old site management but this restriction stays on in the new user interface.
     
  10. I can't seem to be able to login and comment. Trying on this thread. The Post Reply has a dialog of 'Please enter a valid name'.

    update: now I can edit with no problem.
