Stained Glass and similar Groups ?

Hey there,
Now tell me this.... Where is the stained glass group ? Is
rec.crafts.glass where those discussions take place ? If so, I'm
inclined to agree with "Kalera" and his "Good Lord" posting.....

Hey there,
Ahhhh, I see.....
Well, firstly that's pretty sad (how slow this group is..) and secondly "Miss Kalera's" post was right on the money as I too am frustrated by the lack of posting over the last year or so... Too bad really. I'd really like to see links to group members works or 'works in progress' kinda thing. All the best,

Well geez, sorry to hear you are so frustrated.
Why don't you start? I haven't seen much of your name on here, post something relevant? and since this is NOT a binaries group, post a link to your work, let's see what you are up to. Do you earn a living at this or is it "just for fun"?
Let's see more on this subject from you.
I have found in the past, that summer is when folks go outside and do something else besides glass. I know I try to. as far as "the past year" goes, there have been plenty of postings on here, but the "business" of stained glass has been in decline for well over that, the wholesalers/ distributors/ manufacturers have seen it, and the retailers most of all. As age creeps into the picture, a whole new generation is exposed to the craft and art scene and with the advent of the computer, more avenues of expression are there that were not there 20 years ago. Hence, differences of passion in the arts. different exposures.
OK, that started the topic, run with it......

Well, I went to your computer's web server, and got the "It Works!" page, but no amount of guesswork could get me to your home directory, much less to that specific photo. Since you're running Debian, I'd guess you need to put the photo somewhere under /var/www/apache2-default/ if you want to make it publicly available.
If you were trying to attach it, note that this is not a binary group; photos are prohibited here, and will be stripped off by most news servers.

You can't complain about who's in office, if you don't vote. Make a few hundred posts a year like we do, and then you can be counted.

Well, I don't know about you but I normally don't have to vote until there's an election. That 'one' vote can make all the difference. The same applies to these groups and more so to this particular one..... I'll ask the questions when ready and perhaps someone will answer. I have nothing much to contribute as I am knew to this "Glass Craft", but in any event, I just voted.

Let me see if I got this correct. You'll ask a question when you have one, and would like an answer, but until then this group is not supposed to be "dead" or dormant, or slow. We, those with nothing to post but should anyway, should be ready and at your beck and call when our knowledge is needed for something that you are "knew" at?
Post the question you might have and it will be answered, until then quitcherbitchin about nothing or you won't be taken seriously when you do want to know something new. or at least, that is my thoughts on the matter.
It's summer, go swimmin'!!

, no stained glass. I don't have the patience and/or skill to pull that off on the scale many in here do. Work in progress:

I had the pic opened once but can't open it now. Had some questions about color reactions.

Why don't everyone stop complaining and do something . Unfortunately I am really way too busy working to post regularly , but I can try . Why not let all the members post their website address here and then discuss and tear apart the sites . At least then you will be able to see who are the people that should be able to answer questions and who should go and stir it somewhere else . I can start with mine , and do not hold back . I am working about 16 hours each day to earn a living with my stained glass and the market for that is terribly minute here in South Africa . Daniel

The server is up and running. Correct, there is strong reaction between BE tomato red against steel blue and forest green. Not intended. -lauri

yeah, that is one of the long paths I have not yet trespassed. Fortunately the reaction lines were not badly disturbed. Only I missed lines between dense white and tomato red, as there was a clear layer between. I do keep notes on color reactions. -lauri

No offense intended...but you don't seem to 'get it' (perhaps you don't have proper ventilation in your workshop..) I simply stated (as others have..) this "Group" is pretty "Dead" for a medium that encompasses a wide variety of products, hobbies and Crafts. I do find it quite strange that it is so quiet, but then again, with "Quiff's" like you jumping down people's throat's, it's no wonder this group is so quiet.
