@ September 17, 2014 9:24 AM in SITE MIGRATIONFrom this point on, anything you post on the Wall will not travel to the new Wall. The new site should be live sometime today. Thanks.
@ September 16, 2014 3:13 PM in DON'T POST AFTER 6 PM TODAY (TUESDAY)I'm really glad I was able to make it this year. It's one of my favorite shows. GasNetworks rocks!
@ September 16, 2014 12:57 PM in DON'T POST AFTER 6 PM TODAY (TUESDAY)We'll be moving the Wall overnight and anything posted after 6 PM today will not carry over to the new site. See you on the other side!
@ September 15, 2014 11:59 AM in Dead Man stickersI don't think we'll be doing them again. The price went way up from the printer and it didn't make sense. Sorry.
@ September 14, 2014 2:04 PM in PLEASE READ: New site going up this week.You can login in with your current username and password, or if you want to start from scratch, you can log in with any account you have with Facebook, Google, Linkedin, Open ID, or Twitter. Or you can open a new account by filling out a simple form that asks for Name, e-mail, a password of your choice. This one does have a Capcha box (letters not numbers)
@ September 12, 2014 5:24 PM in PLEASE READ: New site going up this week.I haven't posted much lately because we've been working on the new site since February. It's been a big job (this site is enormous) but I think you're going to like it. I'll keep writing and doing the newsletter. I'll stop doing seminars in January 2016. AHR Orlando will be my last seminar. Thanks.
@ September 12, 2014 12:15 PM in PLEASE READ: New site going up this week.And Tuesday, September 16 is the launch date. Thanks.
@ September 12, 2014 12:01 PM in PLEASE READ: New site going up this week.It's completely open source, Chris. It's built from several components but appears seamless. The part of the site that had Disgus is the Blog section, where people can comment on the articles. This is hosted by BlueHouseGroup in New Hampshire. They're the architects for the new site. The new Wall is hosted by Vanilla in Montreal. The store is by Volusion and it, too, is hosted in a different place. Disgus will not be a part of the Wall or the Store or anything other than the Blog, so there's no need to be concerned about your postings. Thanks.
@ September 12, 2014 11:55 AM in PLEASE READ: New site going up this week.Good news! Vanilla has migrated 3,332 bookmarks to the new forum. They tell me that when you login with your current username and password you should see them.
@ September 11, 2014 7:53 PM in PLEASE READ: New site going up this week.The bookmarks are actually on your PC. They're held by cookies, not by the software that currently runs the Wall. That's why we can't move them.
@ September 11, 2014 1:50 PM in PLEASE READ: New site going up this week.We're using Disgus, but only within the Blog portion of the new site, which has articles others and I write. The Wall is by Vanilla and doesn't use Disgus. The folks who are building the site foresee no problems but I thank you for mentioning it.
@ September 10, 2014 6:23 AM in PLEASE READ: New site going up this week.I'm on the road this week. Looking at a furious storm in Chicago right now. We'll be doing the migration next week. A few things popped up. The bookmarks won't travel with us. Sorry about that.
@ September 7, 2014 5:35 PM in PLEASE READ: New site going up this week.We've been working on the new site since last February and it's going to go live very soon. The target date is Wednesday, September 10. I think you're going to like the new bulletin board, which Vanilla has built for us. They've moved the contents of the Wall (a massive job) from the beginning to last May already. In preparation for the launch of the new site, they'll grab all the Wall content from last May until the time they do the grab. This will take some time, as you can imagine, so there will be some posts left behind in the seam as we move forward. These posts will be lost.
Just wanted to give you a heads-up. We don't have a way to put the current Wall into a Read-Only mode so please post judiciously for the next few days.
See you on the other side! I think you'll be pleased with what we've built. And thanks for being such an important part of our community.
@ September 6, 2014 5:10 PM in Fire Side chats with the RPA...Especially considering it was the first time. I learned some new things and you guys really made me think. There were also plenty of laughs along the way. Here's to the NEW RPA! Long may you rock.
Mark, you're the best. Thanks for putting this together such a fine program for all of us.

@ August 27, 2014 9:54 AM in Agenda for the big GasNetworks showI'm looking forward to catching up with all my friends. Hope you can make it.
@ August 27, 2014 9:31 AM in Extra Life for Kids!Chris needs $130 more to make it to his goal. Anyone want to help?
@ August 26, 2014 3:05 PM in Fire Side chats with the RPA...Such a critical mass of hydronic brain power. Wow.
@ August 23, 2014 8:19 AM in Extra Life for Kids!Just $130 to go to hit the top. I'll bet we can do this today. Thanks!
@ August 22, 2014 5:56 PM in Extra Life for Kids!Chris is within $230 of his goal. Anyone like to step up with $10 and help push him over the top. No ice bucket required. Thanks for caring about others.
@ August 20, 2014 3:45 PM in Extra Life for Kids!Hey, guys. Chris is so close to his goal. Think we can all push him over the top? This really is a great cause. Thanks.
