There seem to have been an ongoing issue with the host and the v-bulletin interface which was/is being resolved. Hopefully it is a thing of the past...

We could change the name to connection drop....

Things seem to have sorted themselves, with thanks to the webmaster, rudder boy.

A couple things of note:

If you wish to attach images hosted elsewhere the image command is myprettyphoto.jpg please note the caps, which is true with all commands with this version of v-bulletin

Editorial concerns can get addressed to editor@pressure-drop.us

Web issues can go to webmaster@pressure-drop.us

If you are posting a lengthy post, server my time you out, best to work with it on word or simular then paste it and or do a right click copy/Save BEFORE hitting post

Note: Posting time has been increased, hopefully that takes care time out issuses!

um,,err,,yes, that might possibly work, I nominate Doghouse for Party Director.


Need some more Southern Hemisphere sailors to get onboard and Tuffy needs to check in more often, that way the sun will never set on the PD Empire.

This might help to demistify the art of posting video or photos on Pressure Drop.

Please keep images manageable, less than 800 pixels on long edge at 72 Dpi is preferred.

You can build your own Pressure Drop album and copy the url of images to the thread of desire using the photo tool as shown above, or the simple IMAGE COMMAND which is
www.mycoolpic.jpg note that the img's are in caps and surrounded by the square brackets, with the / in the trailing one. The info in between is whatever your photos URL is. Pressure Drop does not host videos, however you can display them using links!

Not sure what you guys may have done with your hardware but the site is much more responsive.

But now its slow as all hell again. It's hard to believe that it's my connection when every other website I go to comes up quickly. What's different about PD?

IF you are filing a report or story and the timer times you out, hit your backspace tab and it should reappear,
then highlight the piece and copy, THEN re-log on... and paste back. Or write stuff in what ever word editing program
you like and copy and paste.... Problem is with timing, and if it stays on too long the site bogs down and nobody likes it slow...

...well almost nobody...
