    It's Saturday morning and I really feel that things are starting to come together now. Eric has fixed the Who's Online problem and has promised to get back to me with a date for installing the new chat room.  We've also discovered a new messenger system which will be much better than the one we had originally intended to use.  It appears to be easier to configure and Eric has already had some experience of integrating it into the rest of the system. There are still a few niggly bugs to sort out but we're getting there.  The new chat and IM should really revolutionise the way the site works.  I think it's going to be a real milestone. We've invited some of the membership to have a go at our new blogger before it get's it's official launch in the next issue of The Trib.  Haven't had much feedback yet but there are a lot of new blogs appearing. We'll soon be getting going on our Great Trannyweb Survey of 2004 - the last one was two years back and led to the simple message boards we had then, becoming the large and busy community you see today. Our main concern for the present and the future is funding.  We don't receive any grants and rely only on advertising revenue and membership fees.  Together, they just about pay for our hosting bills and a little towards new software.  The rest of the bills are paid for by muggins here, but I can't afford to continue like this. With the advent of new and more expensive software being used and the possiblility that we may need to move to a larger, faster server, we will have to address the funding situation as a matter of urgency. What we really need is for Elton John to make a large donation which will pay our hosting and software costs for the next ten years!

    The early years..... My earliest memory of dressing goes back to when I was between the ages of 3 to 4 years old (Just a few years ago)! I am the oldest of three sons that were born to my mother and father and the only one with these desires all my life. After my father went off to work for the day, my mother would dress me in her blouses - strange hugh? From what I always remembered they were print blouses and colorful. They were also lightweight but were very light weight but always with long sleeves. We always lived in a 2nd floor apartment and we had three girls around the same age as me and we all played together. The oldest girl was named Lynn and she was a very good friend. We all grew up in Chicago and lived on the North Side near the Six Corners. I can remember the apartment just like it was yesterday. We lived on Belden Street.  Yes I knew where everything was in the closet even at this early age. To be continued.... Hugs Leslie Lynn

    I get an error message each time I try and open a window - apart fron Trannychat - must be a software problem as I have no problem with other pages.

    Oh gosh, I've never driven one of these things before. I'm not even sure how to start it. Hmmm, lemme see, maybe this button...nope that makes the window go down. Maybe this one, well, that raises and lowers the driver seat. Wheee, kind of fun. Hmm, maybe this is it. Hey, alright, there it goes, now I bet this is the shift lever. OH CRAP! That's reverse, jeeze, hope nobody saw that and I really hope that guy behind me can find another headlight assembly for his Porsche Carrera. Oh well, it was old anyway. Oh-oh, here comes a cop, I better get outta here......... Well, if I can learn to drive this thing maybe I figure out how to post some stuff about my drive up to Washington and the Emerald City End of Summer Party.

    Gosh, is it Thursday already?  Doesn't time fly when you're having fun. Here's the update - The best brains on the planet have deduced that the reason our server was crashing every 6 - 8 hours was because it was running out of memory, which in turn was caused by our move to Mod_PERL, which uses more memory but less processor time. Eric has tweaked the server to prevent it from runing out of memory in future - well kind of.  It's seems to be a temporary fix.  We may need to move to yet another bigger, better, faster, server, with more memory at some stage.  For now this should help - I'm keeping an eagle eye on it over the next few days/weeks. We still have loads of bugs to get sorted.  The Who's Online feature doesn't work.  Our new birthday script doesn't worlk.  Mass deletion of mass mail doesn't work.  There's still a problem with some members accounts being disabled for non-payment, when they have in fact paid. I can't seem to get the new drop-down menu system to work, which is unfortunate now that we've paid for it. We still have the worst, slowest, chat room on the planet with no sign of Volano turning up or Jabber being installed.  Eric may get back to me on that today. I wish Eric would get more staff.  Because everything has to go through him and because he's inundated with requests for help from all of his other customers, it takes forever for us to get anything done. I also need to get going on the Trib if there's to be a February edition.  We didn't manage a January issue because of all the technical problems.  That cost us valuable revenue. Anyway, enough of my problems.  This morning the sun is shining brightly although it's bitterly cold.  It snowed a bit last night so the scene outside my window is sunny, crisp and white - very pretty. There is much to do - onward...

    It snowed last night and this morning - travelling to work was fun took ages longer than usual - only had 1" here but it caused chaos - why is it that many places in the world manage to survive and even thrive on masses more snow than we have but hee everthing stops for even the tiniest amount? Strange - not the day to go out in short skirt and high heels - unfortunately - more of a day to curl up in front of the fire and drink some warming beverage and relax with a good weepy book.
