Don't know if you will ever get to read this, but couldn't let you go with a word or two. I am not sure how things are where you live but many Libraries in The U.S. have free Internet, so you may consider occasionally checking in with us through that option. Thank you for sharing your modelling with us.

So sad, Peter. Thanks for all your encouragement over the years. Perhaps see you behind "Sisters" at a future show.

Maurice, our public libraries usually have free internet, unfortunately our villages are (if they have any library service at all) catered for by mobile libraries. Basically a horsebox filled with books.

Plenty of pubs and similar establishments also provide free WiFi but again the problem in rural areas is that there is a pitifully poor connection. It's not just rural areas either, my own internet connection is often slow and I live on the outskirts of a fair sized market town.

Peter, as Giles says there's always exhibiting with Two Sisters... And you could take your laptop along to shows just in case they do have a decent WiFi service at the venue.

Either that or hop on a bus! My local service from Crewe to Macclesfield boasts free WiFi and it does not have a long flex trailing behind so I'm assuming it is using mobile phone technology. One advantage of being old enough for a bus pass!

Anyway, thanks for all the inspiration over the years. Cool

As you can see I have returned with a new much cheaper and faster set up with Vodaphone.

I looked in from time to time at my local library, one hour free on Fridays. It was 3 per hour at other times, it was not always working on a Friday due to heavy demand which seemed to catch the server out at times.

I am now seeking somewhere to upload photos that doesn't upset my antivirus set up and is free of charge.

Glad to be back regards to you all Peter M

Welcome back Peter. Very Happy

I use Wordpress.com for uploading photos, the site allows third party hosting so I can use the URL of the images uploaded to my blog to copy them here on MTI.

Hi Peter,
Welcome back!
I've really enjoyed looking through this thread, it took me back to many happy hours doing my US outline modelling. I never got as far as you have done so it always pleased me to see your layout and wonderfully varied stock.
I use Flickr, it is free, can store many, many pictures and when you get used to copying the bbcode, is very easy to use.
Cheers,
John.
