    New hosting service

    Just to say that I've now moved all our sites to the new hosting service in Vancouver. In the process I've added a SSL certificate to electricscotland.com and electriccanadian.com so when you visit these sites you should see a "secure" listing before the url and a padlock icon.

    As you can also see this community is back and seems to be working fine. I'm now trying to get the Arcade working again.

    There are still a few issues like getting the postcard program working again, the help system working and also the recipe database working.

    All in all things are looking good and it seems to me the sites are loading faster than they did.

    I also have to get the Printer Friendly script working but that might take a week or two as their programming staff are rather busy at the moment.

    Please feel free to tell if you experience any problems.

    Re: New hosting service

    Just to add that I now have everything working. The Help system is now back, the Postcard program is working and the Arcade system in this community is also working.

    There are a couple of issues which I can't find a workaround for and that is mostly to do with the games. Like my Cabre Toss and Curling programs don't work due to them being written for an old version of Java. Also while you can play "Dress the Chief" and the JigSaw puzzles Google does require you to enable these options while cautioning you about security issues. I have played both and can't see any issue myself.

    I did email the Jigzone folk about the Jigsaw puzzles but they never got back to me.

    Also I had to delete the Gallery in here but have re-enabled it so you can now upload pictures.

    I didn't bring back the recipe program as I decided it was too old and frankly there are plenty of recipe sites out there. I have however added an old recipe book "The Best Way" to our food and drink page.

    I have just watched a video of a chap building a log cabin in Northern Ontario which you might be interested in and you can view that at: https://bit.ly/2LttALh where you get a full playlist of the sequence of videos that make up the build.

    Al, if the games use Adobe Flash then it is well known to have security issues and in fact Adobe will be removing support for it in the not too distant future.

    I don't know why they don't just fix the issues instead of allowing programs to be broken.

    Ah well enjoy them while you can I guess.

    There have been so many security issues that it is just not worth maintaining the product.
    I forget what the options are but I know that some browsers have built in alternative platforms.

    Google do things differently from other browsers Sandy so where I have an issue I usually will try IE.
