Links to other websites and forums.
« on: November 03, 2020, 11:09:34 AM »
Good Morning all,

I just tried to get up the energy and motivation to do some work using the website hosting we still have but it appears I am just burnt out. I can't even face trying to get some of the regularily used smilies up.

Can you post links to other websites and forums you think others might like.

https://www.paranormal.org.uk/mustardland/viewforum.php?f=2&sid=157aefe7ed05e7bdc03e167bd4a29d72 this is a link to the general conversation area of Mustardland.

Have we lost forever the original OuchToo now?  If so, nobody could have worked harder than you to restore it over the past two months or however long it's been: no wonder you're feeling it's all too much  :'(

This is a friendly site for those who like talking about TV as well as just about everything else:
(most of the membership is made up of ex-BBC Points Of View posters)
https://pointsofviewtoo.freeforums.net/

>edit to add - you need to be a signed-in member to see some of the sub-boards that cover more general discussion, eg politics

Just wanted to say "Hello" to you, I've missed this place so much and would you believe I'm still going through a reassessment that started in MARCH! it's a nightmare.

Sunshine, Kizzy. I missed you both lots and hope you are staying safe and as well as can be expected!  (I did make an account on another disabled based forum but only posted 3-4 times there as it just wasn't the same as good old ouchtoo.)  You guys are like my family and I miss you lots.  I hope Monic is well, she's saved my neck more than once.

Take care everyone, stay safe!
Steve

Good to see you here  :D

Ouch Too is not lost forever and the is a long winded way for me to access the members list to get people's email addresses and invite them back. The database is intact but I have not been able to stitch it into the new shared hosting and it being on the server broke things over and over.

My father in law has been in hospital and got Covid while there so has been gravely ill throughout October with Mr Sunshine having to go to Wales. His Mum has also had a tough time and is not able to look after herself so is in a home for now. The other day I found out she has Vascular Dementia which came as a shock because it means she is further down the road than I realised.

Creating a brand new message board with a new website address and name could give us a new start, but I would have to do some building work. I think the thing is I am gunshy about ouchtoo.org because I worked so hard to trial run the move the the new hosting and it worked, to have it go kabluey when I actually moved things. Then it just broke and broke and broke again. Now we are going to  be on another lockdown I am thinking people need a place to be so maybe I can wake up with some extra energy soon.

Steve,

When I rang the DWP there is allsorts of information to listen through before you actually get in a queue to talk to someone. Part of it said they are not doing any Face to Face assessments so hopefully you paper claim becomes straightforward soon.

Hugs to all  :D

Sorry to learn about your family's health problems. Most important that you take care of your own.

It would be good if you could get the old board together with the other participants but its not going to help anyone if you over do it and go crock.

Good wishes.

Thank you  :)

The hardest thing about the situations I keep finding myself in at home is that my body responds so poorly to stress.

For a lot of the time managing and participating in Ouch Too gave me something in my life that worked and felt good. If I can set something up that we can all use I will have something that is good to do.

I agree it is good if you can find something to keep one interested during these dire times. Just as long as it is not allowed to become taxing.

Sheesh, how utterly frustrating, I expect there were times you just wanted to lob the computer through the nearest exit  :-\

Good advice Oldtone  8)

Kizzy
Ha ha yes about the computer  ;D

Although Mr Sunshine's dad is slowly improving it is touch and go because he has CPOD.

edit to correct typo  ???

Several days of more trial and error and wow I fluked it http://www.ouchtoo.co.uk/index.php

Ouch Too does have a new address but the database is there. We did lose three months worth of posting time, most of it when the site was very broken. Also none of the add ons I made are installed and smilies need to be re uploaded. I can't guarantee anything until I know more but I am telling you all no so you can get anything you want to in case it does break eg friends email addresses.

Once we are happy with the rebuild I will uninstall this version on.ORG and put in a redirect to the .UK adress.
