No fooling - something posted that has some skydiving reference, and is not
from a killfiled source.

Good to see the flicker of life.

Blue skies,

It's correct that I've posted my christmas greetings to multiple groups,
and the total count of groups I posted my christmas greetings to this
year is 23, including several local norwegian groups (with my greeting
in norwegian language) only acessible through local norwegian ISP's.

However, that's only a selection (based on interrest and group activity)
of all the different newsgroups I've been reading and posting to since I
got my first Internet connection back in the 1990's.

As I'm still using the same software for reading newsgroups as when I
started using Internet (although it's been upgraded multiple times with
newer versions), and also have archived ALL posted messages throughout
all these years, I've so far posted a total of 4552 messages (this reply
will be #4553) to 94 different newsgroups (including previous groups
that no longer exist or that I no longer subscribe to).....  ;-)

By searching the message archive files, I find that my very first
message to THIS newsgroup (rec.skydiving) were posted at 21.11.1996, and
with a total of 87 messages so far.....  ;-)

Stig, mate...... you need to get some new material... no offence, but the
same ol' same ol' *every* year gets a bit 'stuck in the rut' type of
thing.

I went as far as 2000.........

Oh no, it's that time of year again.....

Anyway, here is my Christmas greeting card for you!

Since posting binaries to non-binary newsgroups isn't allowed, you'll
find my Christmas greeting card at this address:

http://home.online.no/~stigbye/christmas_cards/rec_skydiving.html

PS.  I had planned to make a new greeting card this year, but due to
     severe lack of spare time now just before christmas (e.g. doing an
     approx. $35,000 rebuilding of the house and similar), I haven't had
     time for that.
     Therefore, I just blew the dust of my old greeting card....

     However, and AFAIK, it's the thought that count, and not the
     content of the greeting card...  (or perhaps I'm wrong...???)

Cheers,

Stig Arne Bye

True, as I also had mentioned in one of my previous greeting posts back
in 2000.
However, then the "annual problem" arise every year that the christmas
(usually) come too fast, and as I usually had a rush to get my greetings
cards posted just a few days before christmas eve, I simply didn't have
time to remake my greeting cards and then simply resused my old cards...

Furthermore, as I make my greetings individual for each group by always
using pictures related to that group, the "problem" is that I have very
few images taken by myself suitable for this and thus have to use
royalty free image colletions, except such collections usually contain
very few images that actually is suitable to use as a christmas card
background picture.
On the contrary, for a few groups I post to, I've used pictures taken by
others, but then of course with sincere permission from the original
photographer.

A secondary "problem" was that I were abandoned by my former ISP late
2005 (where I had Internet connection and website space since I got
Internet back in the 1990's), so then I litterally were without Internet
connection for some months.
However, as I live only a "stone's throw" from a local school, and as
the administration IT-manager is an old friend of me, I therefore got
permission to use one of their wireless networks, and by installing a
WiFi network-card in the PC with an external roof-mounted antenna, I've
now had FREE broadband Internet access with speeds up to 20 Mbit/s for
almost five years.....

However, as that's the basic Internet connection only, I had to use
other third-party providers for e-mail and website space, but as all
these were free providers, many of these didn't work so well with
(usually) very limited website space etc.

In 2009, I finally signed up with a (paid) professional hosting provider
and also registered my first and own domain name, and now have my own
servers for mail account(s), website(s), FTP-account(s), etc., and even
have my own dedicated (private) server IP-address...
And as I now have a total server space of about 3,000 GB (about 30,000
times more than with my former ISP that offered "only" 100 MB space), I
now have a "secondary problem" to find out what to fill all this server
space with (current server status reports show 99.963% unused space)...

Isn't "The Stig" the mysterious character in the "TopGear" car show
wearing a white Simpson racing helmet with dark visor that he NEVER take
off and/or is seen without.....

Just before typing this reply I was watching another episode of "TopGear
Australia" which also is being shown on TV here in Norway, but I must
honestly admit that the original "TopGear" series from UK is much more
fun to watch than the "down under" version.....

Another of my favourite TV series from "down under" is "Bondi Rescue",
where all seasons made so far were sent on TV here in Norway until just
before christmas.
Until they eventually make new seasons of "Bondi Rescue", a similar TV
series from Muriway beach in NZ is currently being sent (next episode
tomorrow)...
