I checked and there is no new mods and V-cubes aren't there.

Dave(DLitwin) is in charge of the database, and i'm sure the amount of stuff to sift through is insane, so the database will be totally up to date eventually...it'll probably just take a while though.

"In charge" is a bit of a stretch, but I am a moderator so close enough I suppose.

Sorry for the delay.

Over the holidays three of my four computers at home died (ho ho ho?) leaving me ill prepared to do any photo editing (the surviving Mac was fine for email and forum posts, but my editing software is Windows based).

Two are back up (just the OS) and one headed for the recycler, so hopefully I'll be able to get started and have some actual results this month.

Now to install the network drivers and put PaintShopPro on the Windows machine...

Dave

No offense taken :)

Everyone wants the same thing, but it isn't always simple. Sandy has been quite busy and only recently was able to do the work necessary to allow others to help him (more is yet to be done).

He was kind enough to choose me to help out because (last year) I had taken some time to clean up files and submit them, and because my standard of quality for picture editing met his high standard.

I will soon start going through the backlog of submissions and seeing what I can do to help get things entered. The quality of the images will greatly affect the speed of this process. If I have to clean up a bunch of images before putting them in the database that will slow things down. I hope to get help in this regard and I am sure there are others out there willing to help with image editing abilities and high quality standards. I hope to start a thread about getting help with this soon, but first I have to get familiar with the process myself. With my computer fixed, I hope to get on this soon :)

Dave

Dave,
does this mean we can send you our puzzle pictures for fixing up? I have read the tutorial on how to clean up photos, but I just don't understand it. I've tried, and come up with well, not so good stuff.

I'd be willing to help out with the photo editing, and I think others may be as well. Perhaps if you opened a temporary thread / site / whatever so people like myself could grab and clean photos as needed that may speed things up? It would still leave you to do all the management, but it would make a large dent in the work.

That's the plan. Sandy used to have just the thread, and my contributions to it got me this job ;)

Soon. XP SP3 just finished installing. Then a few Neon DIY's to box up, some sleep, childcare...

Ah, my bad. Well, I guess that's what I get for not paying total attention for some time now... I'll keep an eye out for when it re-emerges then :)

No worries. And your (and other's) offer won't be forgotten, so likely I'll be contacting you :)
