Thanks for this photo page. But when I view the link (https://emdpics.somdcomputerguy.com/) in either the Firefox or Edge browsers, the display is incorrect, usually after GDG. All later entries are missing thumbnails and some white text is inserted. I can click on the empty area where the thumbnail should be and see the large photo, but obviously something is broken when I view the page.

The behavior is erratic, so I wonder if it's some rate limiting put in by Fastmail after the recent attack.

Hmm, I just noticed this myself, after your post. I was at that 'gallery' sometime in the past several weeks, it was OK then and from what I can see of the error text being displayed now it appears to be a permissions error. I'll have a look at my Fastmail file storage.

Well I was misreading what I could see of the text being displayed. It's not permission issues. It appears the gallery loads better at this URL - http://images.somdcomputerguy.com/EMDpics/ than it does from this one - https://emdpics.somdcomputerguy.com. The only difference I can think of off the bat is because of the http via https thing..

eta: I believe that had much to do with this issue. Use - http://emdpics.somdcomputerguy.com instead.

Thanks, Bruce! http://emdpics.somdcomputerguy.com/ is working great. My photo isn't too many years old -- it was before the pandemic, but it shows my grey hair and beard I started a few years ago. But I have lost over 60 pounds since that photo - on purpose!

Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love! ;)

That's amazing! Congrats!

Meanwhile, I've gone in the opposite direction. :(

Meanwhile, I've gone in the opposite direction. :(

I retired two years ago (my employer of 32 years gave me a departure deal I could not refuse). Shortly after I retired, the pandemic threw a wrench into my retirement activity plans. I was obese and again gaining weight. My doctor convinced me that the problem wasnít going away on itís own and that I had to take significant actions to lose weight. I slowly lost weight for a few months, but Iím an analytical guy (electrical engineer) and didnít have a good grasp on the actual calories in each meal and how many I needed to eat in a day. In February I found a great iOS app (Lose It!) which lets you look up nutrition in common foods and chain restaurant foods or scan bar codes on foods from grocery stores. You can track your daily calories and your weight and blood pressure. That was what it took for me to get serious about calorie counting, and I have been losing an average of 1.6 pounds a week over the past 8 months by limiting my calories to 1500 per day. My blood pressure is down in the normal range as the result of my weight loss.

Getting back to the subject of this thread: Iím building a new house now (after demolishing my old house two months ago) and Iím hoping that after all the delays it will be complete around March of 2022, when I should get down to my target weight. I will take a nice photo of myself in my new house at my new weight then and post it here. :D

Sounds like your browser is like mine Billy (Im on an older broswer (IE6)) and sometimes it misses some of the images and ya just see a box..... I have my max connections set to 48 but I believe the max per server is 20... (And thats any server not just that one)

I just saw Edwins picture...he is amazing looking!!

I was using the latest Firefox and Edge browsers on Windows 11. See the later posts - it was due to using the https: version of the URL. You should use:

Didn't Fastmail have problems displaying images recently?

It's about time some of you forum members, who have not yet supplied a photo to Bruce's EMD Photo Page, say 'cheese', take a selfie, and submit your mugshot!

It's nice to put a face to a name! :)
