!! The Oldgas.com Shop Talk forum system will be offline this evening about 8 pm central time for an important upgrade.

The upgrade will enable uploading of pictures directly into your posts with no resizing!

The new software will automatically adjust to be compatible with mobile devices so it will display much better on various smaller size screens.

We hope to be back in operation in a hour, but there will be some configuration needed to get the image upload function to work after the forum is up and running.

Thanks for your support and patience. You're going to like the new improvements.

I've been after getting this image upload improvement for over a decade. The software company has finally come through for all of us. More good things coming in the upgrade.

I've always said that doing code work on the forum is like changing a tire on an 18-wheeler while it's going down the highway. This time we have to pull the forum over to the side of the road for a pit stop tonight to make some deep changes.

The upgrade didn't happen because of a technical difficulty.
Hopefully, we'll try again soon.

Either way, thank you Jim for improving the website for all of us. It'll be nice to be able to load pics easier. I feel we are going to see a lot more pics in the near future and no one will have to use photobucket, or similar sites where pictures can disappear over time. We will be building a real good digital database from here on out.

Thanks for your hard work on keeping this great website going. I am looking forward to the upgrade.

I'll let you know when it's ready.
