Here. Pay Here. Make It There. service has been returned.
Albeit, the data is old; you need to update your profiles. The old
feature which formed contracts and hired contacts needs to be rebuilt
- give me a few months. But there are new profile features and it all
works pretty well as it is. Remember to ask me to delete your old
profile after you create a new one.
The on-line CAD drawing tool might never return.
Sorry that's all I have for you this month, but I
worked really hard to return the Mirror and the Buy Here. The
CAD...still working on it but looks iffy. I think the one at D-Mart
is a good second best for those who require it.
August 28, 2012 - Very Busy Month....
The best laid plans of mice & men has struck
again. I should have been retired as your Admin on this date but the
deal fell apart. A long time member and faithful developer who was
groomed to take over, could not. He is still on board and you'll hear
much of him in the future, but I'm still your Curator and Admin. No
rest for the weary.
I want to update you about the
changes for 2013. Please click
here to review them.
MIRROR has been turned off until further notice. Server
broke, ordered another off eBay
If we host your website and email DO NOT WORRY,
we do not host domains on the Mirror server.

Cathy and I are trying to get along without A/C (ours
broke and no way we can afford the repairs.) Our member, Pat, lives
out in the Philippines; says since Christmas she has seen a volcano,
a tsunami, a bad earthquake and cannot get into town due to floods!
My son and his family in Richmond are out of electric nearly 7 days
today due to the heat and storms. My bro-in-law out west needs a boat
to get to his front porch, so does my sis-in-law in Tenn. My mom in
New York is hotter than we are here in South Carolina. My son Patrick
and my grandson in FLA are cooler than all of us. Is this that 2012
thing or is Al Gore getting even with all those Republicans who
laughed at him?
Sorry to get off topic, but nothing much to report
here. I am very busy and all those inovolved with the new projects
are busy as well. Getting into details would just be a repost of
June's What's New.

Tough couple of months now placed behind me, but got
all kinds of news for you. Just as an aside I am typing this thinking
of my approaching 6/29 birthday and looking at the 31 years
blurb above this posting; I suddenly realized I have been working for
you ladies and gents for half my life time - I am presently 62 years old!
Maybe time for a change. What do you think?
Well, hang in there, folks, a'change is a'coming.
Lots, in fact. I expect to have the entire website revamped by
Christmas. Fast Search
will be in place. Our new project of allowing the public to share /
buy / sell / lease / show and design (online CAD) artwork will also
be in place. Our old service of offering standard members domain
names and websites will knock your socks off. You will be able
to create your websites on the fly and manage it from within your own
admin panel. We will have a SHOPPERS
member class - the public (per se.) Who will be able to do the
same, but at a fee. They will be able to buy designs also, for a
price. Perhaps you have seen the buttons already.
This is only the hi-lights. Those actively involved in
doing all this seem to dream up magical ideas almost every day.

My kid sister Chickie - known to most of you as Rita
Auricchio D'agostino, the proprietor of Holy Family Monuments and St.
Charles Florist in New York, died this morning from complications due
I have adjusted the new-lower access
fees. A handful of you will actually see an increase due to the
adjustment we did 2 years back when those paying $42 remained at that
fee. Now we're all at $45 - down $2.
I am moving slowly toward completion of
the FAST SEARCH and
barely scratching the surface for the SHOPPER
functions. As members (maybe you) talk around, the news is attracting
others and companies to be part of what we have in store for next
year. None of those approaching me (or those who first thought up
this new project) are in the stone trades. However, I (me) am very
interested in a company and an individual who hails from the world of
3D tech drawings. And I also reached out to someone in the stone
trade, but heard nothing back. One thing is certain; this is going to
be an exciting website and archive by next year.

We have gained 2 new members this week. That's 5 for
2012. Something is up. But expect access fees to go down this year -
about time, huh?
Of note, a new member by the name of Ryan Hogan came
in the door with 240 designs to share. Lots more where they came
from, he tells me. He also use to run a site (BBS). I'm talking
myself blue for him to lend a hand. So far, he's a very active member.

Damn! Finding more than a comforty level of designs
which need redrawing. Especially those oldies from before Monu-CAD
and tools we take for granted today.
If I'm not sleeping or eating I'm coding in Buy Now
buttons. But, got a handy tool I developed while posting the buttons.
DO NOT RELY 100% on it as it will update whenever I think it needs
it. It's a seacrh engine of the FAST SEARCH area. I employ it to find
the pages with designs I created the buttons for. It will, of
course, become prime time once the Fast Search area is about 75%
finished. Go to and Bookmark it.
