Some of you guys might have noticed that it's been slow row'in around here for about 3 weeks due to a major change that was needed on this end to finally change from a PC using Windows 7 (no longer supported by Microsoft) to a newer computer running Windows 10....
It might not seem like such a big deal but when you consider that 3 Wide's Picture Vault was built in 2002 using Windows Frontpage 98 (yup... as in 1998).. and when you consider that I've been doing all my photo editing (resizing, correcting, embedding) using Photoshop Elements 2.0 which is from around 2000.... and that I'm using a Canon 8400F Scanner rrom 2004 that Canon no longer supports with a driver for Windows 10.... It's been quite a challenge to get stuff to work and/or replace stuff that wouldn't work with Windows 10 to something that will.
I'm not one for using larger size fonts, but if there was ever a time to do so, now is the time:
Thank you to Jay Dugan of Radical Designs (Hamilton NJ) for his dedication to supporting the history of the sport by working through a somewhat challenging process of getting Windows 10.... Frontpage 2003.... and GoDaddy's servers to all decide to work together. If it wasn't for Jay's determination and thoroughness, this would of never happened, and 3Wide's Picture Vault would have pretty much been sealed at that point (no new images/comments able to be added.) For those of you that know Jay and see him at the indoor events/Thunder events/Motorsports show, please let him know that you appreciate his behind the scenes work to keep the lights on around here.
We still have a few steps to complete, but as of this morning (11/8/20) we're about 80% back in business.... Just in time for our 18th year anniversary date (main site launched on Nov 13, 2002.)
If you notice any inoperable links or pages not loading in the main site (www.3Wides.com) please email me and I'll put on the hard hat and go to work...... I don't think I can fix them all, but I'll take a look for sure if you provide the page info.
Thank you for your patience, and also thank you again to Jay Dugan for his knowledge, determination, and willingness to help us out.
