Back to the ... past.

Yesterday I went to the Apple Store for another rendezvous at the Genius Bar.
They explained that because the photos were registered under El Capitan, the ancillary data (e.g. indexing) is not compatible with previous versions of OS (eg Yosemite).
So, after 2.5 hours they managed to recover iWeb and its content and 26 000 images - but not the indexing.
I now have thousands of photos of Scimitars, but don't ask me anything about them because I don't know whose is whose.

Then I tried to upload the site, and got the same error message "insufficient memory".
This, I have now come to understand, is because I created (or at least updated) the site on El Capitan, which, as we now know, is not compatible.
It appears that new MacBooks are not compatible with anything, old Mac software, compact discs, ethernet cables ...
Except, apparently, they now work very well with Widnows.
I never had the slightest problem with a Mac until I bought this one last year and was pleased to have a free upgrade to El Capitan.
It is crap, absolute crap.

So I have now uploaded my site from the old Mac, which works very well and is compatible with everything (except Widnows).
There are several problems which I will be able to resolve in time -
1 - the site is five months out if date (see latest 'mise à jour'!)
2 - having started to empty the memory to give the computer to no1 son for his business administration, quite a few images are missing
3 - the link for the site has changed, it no longer recognises 'index' so please change your directory to
http://www.scimitarfrance.net/scimitarfrance/

Welcome back both of my fans

Some progress.
You can now (apparently) access the site with its simple name http://www.scimitarfrance.net
I am restoring images and have also uploaded a couple of photo-reports on events of this year.

But with all the images on one computer and the site on another, it's a bit complicated.
Especially when the only means of communication between the two is by e-mail :roll:

Right, I think I am up to date, see if you can find any errors or omissions!
The next challenge is to completely eradicate the corrupted iWeb from my new(ish) Mac and transfer the definitive version from the old Mac.
Wish me luck ...

Still running the site on my old Mac, must make an appointment at the Apple Store to effect the transfer.

Hundreds if not thousands of new items have been posted in the last six months, it's always worth a browse.
I am also starting to re-look everything a bit, starting with the title page which now looks like this ...

Shouldn't have said anything.
My server doesn't seem able / willing to make the latest changes so the ScimiHistory pages are missing a lot of new images and the ScimitarFrance titles are all to cock.
Hope it'll sort itself out, meanwhile I am preparing some pretty pasteurized images ...
I actually typed p o s t e r i s e d but the spellchecker apparently doesn't like that.

Slowly and unsurely it is working, here is a new-look Scimitar France page which shows most existing french Scimitars (and Sabres/Sabras but there are very few).
Sorted by département, there are 90-odd départements and 1000 photos so if anyone would like to produce a map ... 8)

Had to pay extra for the site as I have exceeded the 1go capacity.
Now have 5go, should be enough to be going on with.

Here's the 'new' Europe page for cars from Belgium, Switzerland, Spain etc

Gradually getting the new look together, my server is even more gradual than me so some bits I've done still aren't visible :roll:
This is the page for forriners, english in France, french in England, swiss in Katmandu etc.

Oh dear, no updates for months!
The site itself is frequently updated though, well with a visit.

Today I present the french Scimitaristes and their cars.
Some have changed hands over the years, and some members have more than one car, which may not appear.
But you get the idea ...

It's some time since I updated this thread, though not the site.
However, that is the latest problem, since HostPapa changed their hosting to a whiz new 'plateforme' I can no longer update.
It tells me that the IP 64.34.68.40 is inaccessible.
Looking up that IP it doesn't list Scimitar France, but that doesn't surprise me :roll:
I have e-mailed HostPapa but no response.

Can anyone tell me how to find the correct IP address (is that URL?)
and how to persuade iWeb to send the updates to it ?

Here is a screen cap of the most recent front page of the site as all the above posts are a bit out of date 8)

The IP address of http://www.scimitarfrance.net/scimitarf ... venue.html is apparently: 65.39.193.10 and hostpapa is in Toronto, Canada?

Thanks Jim, yes HostPapa is canadian.

Any idea on persuading iWeb to send the updates to 65.39.193.10 ?

Right, thanks to Jim we seem to be operational again.
iWeb was trying to upload the site modifications to 64.34.68.40 which no longer exists.

HostPapa forgot to tell me they had changed the IP number :roll:
In fact, worse than that, they specifically said I wouldn't need to do anything during the migration of the site.
And they still haven't replied to my e-mails.
Draw your own conclusions on the efficiency of this server ...

I had to reload the whole site, which took several hours, don't know exactly as I went to bed after about an hour and a half 8)
There is an enormous amount of new stuff especially in Sorties Seen and Scimitar Coupé, and more to come.
Have a look ...
