  1. Your description of your problem sounds exactly what happened to me. Things working just stopped. It seems according to James "2" boxes must be checked. 1. A notification when new content is posted. 2. An explicit instruction to deliver it by email I don't ever remember checking the second one, but it's possible I did. In any case I'm sure that I never unchecked it. James seems to have rechecked it which made things work again, for which I thanked him. Good luck. Richard
  2. It was on your end (server), but my fault for not configuring correctly. Emails are now coming through. THANK YOU Richard
  3. Sorry got cut off. What I was trying to say was: I'd like to point out that when I changed my address to either "gmail.com" or "gmx.fr", the forum sent me, at these addresses, an email requesting confirmation of the address change. These emails I received. So there is something more going on then a simple "whitelisting". My feeling is there there is somehow a configuration error in your forum software and it's to them to look into the problem. Richard
  4. That's what I was doing until you suggested that I use Gmail. I've always tried to avoid things like gmail, hotmail & ... I used to have things sent to my ...@wanadoo.fr, ...@gmail.com doesn't seem to work. I have another ISP ...@gmx.fr, if that doesn't work you have a major problem, since what you're saying is that at least 3 major ISPs don't work. Both "wanadoo.fr" & "gmx.fr" are very large ISPs in Europe. What I'm also going to do is try and open another account with you. I'd like to ^point out th
  5. I am more and more convinced that the problem is on your end (.05% not). There should have been Gmails that I should have gotten from other topics I'm following; I haven't. Normally I use a POP client to read my emails. This time I connected to Gmail with a browser, nothing was there. I also double checked to see if gmail was sticking a spam filter on, it wasn't. Is there something that you can do to check on your end? I miss the mails! Should I try and define another account? Richard (locked down in Paris)😪 PS. Could you reply by ema
  6. I think that the problem is on your end. I just changed my email address to a "gmail" address and that doesn't seem to have solved the problem. There have been other things I'm following, t which I haven't been notified. If you respond to this, I should get an email. I don't think I will.
  7. Thanks, I just changed my address to a gmail address. I'll wait to see what happens. Keeping my fingers crossed.
  8. Not sure what is happening. I'm not receiving emails for topics that I'm trying to "follow". This is recent I used to receive the emails when there new postings to topics that I was following. About 2 moths ago they stopped. I haven't been able to figure out why. Any help would be appreciated. Suzdal (aka Richard)
  9. When you say soaked, could you be more presise, cold water, hot water, below boiling water & for how long? When clamped down afterwards drying, did you use a source of heat such as a hair dryer. Thanks for your response. Richard
  10. I think one of the first questions would be how to modify the sides to be able to show some of the detailed interieur & how to illuminate it with LEDs.
  11. The movie is all over the Internet, if you know where to look. I just watched in my PC, way in the outback of Normandy. We've got more cows here then people. The book which can be found on the Internet is much better, it shows the charater interactions amongst the players & various players thoughts abut the other players, something the movie leave out. Richard
  12. Chris There is an ancient Egyptian boat in very good condition in a museum at the base of the pyramids. It's a bit earlier the the middle kingdom under Hatshepsut's , by about 1000 years. It date from the period of the pyramids. Richard
  13. Please don't go crazy. You are doing a fantastic job. I think that we can all realize and appreciate the work that you are doing. Richard
  14. Chris, Could you go into some detail on what the difference is between the 2 versions. Richard
  15. I also wanted to thank BE. He is proving to very helpful on my build of lady Eleanor. I've learned a tremendous amount by following him. Merci Richard
  16. I'm was getting worried that the Flirt was being forgotten with in the Victory. I want to Flirt around as soon as I've finished Lady Eleanor. Since the Victory has a bit more rigging then the Flirt and if your worried about not having enough swear words, I'd be happy to translate your list into to french. Am waiting with a great deal of expectation, as I am sure are many others, on your Victory build. Je vous souhaite la meilleure construction possible. Richard
  17. Thank you for the tulle tip & how you planked. By using water, do you mean soaking the lime wood planks for about 20 minutes, near to boiling water before trying to fit them? That's what I did for the pear wood bulk works. What do you mean by heat?, a hair drier. Sorry to bug you, this is my first attempt a model boat. If I succeed with this one, "Flirt" will be next on my list. After that, who knows the "Victory" if I can find the room. Richard
  18. There is one thing that sort of bothers me with the modification you have made to the wheel. Where does the helmsman stand. Normally he would want to face forward, behind the wheel. The mechanism would sort of prevent this & plus he would have to stand on the thwart (further from the boat's center of gravity, a bit more unstable). What did you make the nets from ? Are you going to add a fish smelling perfume to the open hatch ? I've had to hold up on my Eleanor since I'm spending some unscheduled time in the hospital. As soon as I get put I'
  19. I am just a beginner and following your build with a great degree of interest. I will start to do my (and the) 1st planking of my Eleanor starting Wednesday when I get back to Paris from Normandy. Normandy is train time. As a small comment, Eleanor of Aquitaine is buried at about a 2 hour drive from here, along with her son Richard. What sort of glue did you use for the 1st planking ? I was thinking of PVA and holding it in place with the supplied pins, at least over night. My AMATI nail nailer arrived just last week. I liked your tip about collecting the sa
  20. Has any used Liquitex Professional Heavy Body Acrylique. They come in a nice selection of colors They seem to have a good consistency & are all rather thick; haven't yet tried their yellow, but have used their titanium white, red oxide and ivory black. I'm just starting out and have essentially zero experience in painting. Humbrol I can get in France, Admiralty paints I'd have to order from the UK. Richard
  21. I wanted to thank you very much. I'm just finishing the fairing of my Eleanor. Your adventures on your efforts to do the first planking will be very helpful for me. Richard
  22. I'm still waiting for my Eleanor to arrive. Chis you were right, it got to the door of my apartment building on Friday (yesterday) . If I owned a hat, I'd eat it. Unfortunately UPS didn't know enough on how to get into the building. I called them and explained how to enter, just a standard french door bell (go wonder). They offed to deliver on Tuesday, I told them to wait until Wednesday since I won't home on Tuesday (grrr!). Next time I won't question you again 🤐. Richard
