Bluehost has really tanked this time - Back up finally

Bluehost has been having recurring outage problems in the last 6 months and they're at it again. This time their support phone system and internal network is also having issues, so the support staff is clueless as to what's going on. No ETA because they don't have a clue.

Great, just great. What a mess. They are basically now having major outages roughly once every couple months - outages that last for up to 8 hours and are a total fire drill.

For us, this means all our ad feeds and links are broken. It also takes TrainMasters TV offline.

Posting from an iphone?

I knew people had problems posting in the forum from iOS devices, but wow!

After linking some photos for somebody, I thought I'd check it out and try a test post from my iPhone (iOS 7).

How do you even make a new post? ...the "Make a web post" link in the right side menu takes me straight to the MRH homepage on my iPhone.

What is the ETA for the new website/forum these days?

Heartbleed bug in OpenSSL

Read about the heartbleed bug today and was concerned about my Bluehost account. So I contacted them and they confirmed they are OpenSSL 1.0.1g which is not vulnerable to the heartbleed bug. Thought you might want to know since some components of MRH are hosted on Bluehost.

Satellite truck

I am in want of a HO scale Satellite truck. I have searched ebay and the internet to no avail. Does anyone know where I could find one or the parts to build one? I did see where some one had built one, but it was only a picture.

More iOS users than Android users on MRH

A recent check of the MRH website traffic stats shows 2.5 times the number of iOS device visits to Android visits.

This tracks pretty closely with recent findings that for the overall web, more are using iOS for web browsing (at least 2 times), while those with Android tend to use it more as a feature/gaming device and not as much for pure web browsing.

LOGOs Heralds - share yours?

Share your "homemade" logo or herald. 

Looking for inspiration; whether yours is freelance, proto-freelance, alterations for "what-if" logos and heralds.

Please let us know what era and inspiration or story behind your RR.

I am working on a Rock Island / Conrail "what if". I have done a KCN (Kansas City Southern & Chicago Great Western merger) what if.  Pix to follow,

Bluehost is down again

Bluehost is down again. Went down for several hours in November, again in December, now again in February (today).

This means all MRH ad links and TrainMasters TV are offline, although because of Cloud Edge technology, TrainMasters TV does sort of work using a replicated copy of the main site.

Bluehost is now on the list to be replaced as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience while we work with Bluehost to get things back online.


Hi is there something wrong with the search engine

Question about responding to a comment on a blog

I have a question, well actually two -

First: It is what is the best/preferred way to respond to a comment/question asked on blog post? How does the person asking the question know that a answer has been posted? Does the answer get posted in the original blog post in the comments section or do I create another blog post? I am not sure how to respond, I have just been answering in the comments area.

Second: Is there a way of getting the following into a post without retyping it every time?

Thanks for any and all help.
