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.....
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
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.
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'!!
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 .
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.
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.
