Will do (or at least Ryan will, I think he has the digicam)....we are planning a rally through the "wine country" of Yamhill county sometime in January. It promises to have lots of twists and turns and other surprises! We'll keep you posted of the where and when.

We had a nice showing of about 12 MINIs at the Cooper Cruise-In. Pardon my junky shots. It got so dark so quickly I couln't get a decent shot, short of installing a spotlight on my camera. Had to photoshop 'em up to be a bit brighter at the expense of clarity. But enjoy all the same!

Everybody looks so shiny! Sorry I was unable to make it for the rally but I spent my Sunday at the office - crashed firewall on network trumps all personal plans.

Please post more pics even if you have to lighten them...looks like a diverse group of MINI's.

Nice looking turnout, Guys! and Congrats to Davbret and Kimini1 on the new jobs!
Quite a good looking lineup of cars ... begs for a new thread ...'would James Dean drive a MINI?'
See you all next time ...

Nope, so silk greens. You'll be the only one!

While on the same topic, we had 3 dark silvers, but one had black roof, one had white and one had body colored.

Follow up:

I notice that a manufacturer for front tower braces for our S's has a hinge point where the cross bar attaches to each tower bracket. Unless my mechanical engineering theory fails me [or I'm having another senior moment] doesn't that sort of defeat the purpose of the stabilizer bar? In a perfect world where all roads are flat that would work nicely, but with the undulations, chuck holes, heavily traffic grouved roads, still work? Hmmmmmmm

LBC1, again

Wow..........It looks like everyone had a good time.

I'm sorry I couldn't be there my inlaws had us over for dinner that night and family takes priority.

Let me know if you want my help as a webmaster.

YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES

In case you were not clear, we would LOVE for you to be our webmaster. We decided on http://www.pdxmini.org as the club site name. Shoot me a PM or an email with your contact info and we'll talk about what we are going to need.

Thanks again SO much!!

In short, if there is any doubt, YES would be the answer.

Well I didn't want to step on anybody's toes and it sounded like PDX_Mini may have been established as the WebMaster.



I'm looking into hosting options now and for what we'll need the server to do ie; Run PERL and PHP scripts, have more thatn one email account, a MySQL database maybe, Frontpage Extensions for future webmasters (I don't use Frontpage), SSH and FTP access etc.

Doteasy.com would be great if they would do all these things for free but they don't. After you add in the things we need they would be a little more expensive then some of the other hosts that include those things in their packages for the same price if not less.

It looks like it'll be around $20 per month.

So far I'm liking http://www.aplus.net

Being that I am not a techie, I have no idea what any of those anacronyms are...maybe you and PDX_Mini could work together on this? I'm really in the dark when it comes to website engineering. We will use whatever the best option is, that gives us the most flexibility.

I agree that although the MCO site idea sounds good, we are going to want something more creative to feature our group.

Defintely not a webmaster - not sure how that rumor got started. Among ohter things I handle networks / security / databases / administration / for a third party administration company, but web sites I don't do.

Racegun, be my guest to create the site. If there's anything you feel I can do please feel free to call on me.

Um, well ok I'm not entirely sure how much time I can devote to the care and feeding of the website but I'll do my best.

I have very little free time anymore between work (investors and stockholders can be such a pain in the ****) and my other hobbies and home life. This has been reflected in my absence at all of the organized events so far. I don't expect this to change anytime soon so I'll have to be a member in spirit and not in person. I'll be able to do impromptu things like meeting after work for a beer and those sorts of things, but for the most part my family has the pole position on the weekends.

Ryan, I think Aplus.net is going to meet all of our current and future needs for a server space. I would suggest we start there. I'll need the logins and all of the account info that you set up so I can get something done. Also we need to know where the content will be coming from. I mean who will write the copy, who will do the artwork etc. I am an ok webmaster at best but I'm not an artist or a writer. I can supply some software for doing some digital art if needed (such as Fireworks or Photoshop).

Let me know when you'd like me to get started.
