Web Page Repair
Hello Ladies and Gentlemen
I have I have talked to a company about fixing up the web page and get it running again. The only thing that stands in our way is cash.
Here is what was said by us….
I would like to know the cost of changing the web page over to the new format and also repairing some of the programs.
Problems with the web page are as follows
1. Photo albums by Gallery will not let you up load photos at all.
2. It all started when one of our long time user’s donreid changed something in his album.
3. Now when you try to upload a photo you get an error message of
- Adding Crashed truck oo1.jpg
Resizing/compressing original image
No resizing required
Warning: exec() has been disabled for security reasons in /home/wolfmola/public_html/modules/Gallery/platform/fs_unix.php on line 35
Error: Unable to make thumbnail (0)!
Need help? Look in the Gallery FAQ
4. I did try to upload a newer version of Gallery but never could get it installed.
5 Spammers are posting comments under photos. I would also need a way to stop that but let members post comments.
1. I had to shut down the registration due to spammers adding fake accounts (sometimes 100 a day)
The web page will not auto purge the fake accounts something I would like to fix
2. I need to fix this problem so users can sign up but spammers cant.
I will then go to our membership and see if I can come up with the cash to repair the web page.
Many say they will help pay costs.
Let me know what you think or if you can help us out
Thanks in advance
There is no functional new format you could use. You would need to migrate to new software, but we can assist with that as well.
Here is what I would suggest:
1) We create a staging site for the new software at:
2) We install the new software and set up the site to look somewhat similar to your current website.
3) We replicate the current user experience in terms of navigation links, etc.
4) We embed spam protection.
5) We import the content from the old site. Since we're only talking about a little more than 100 articles, we might be better off by just copying and pasting them rather than writing a new import software from scratch.
6) We can make the old site available as an "Archive" where users can browse through things but not add any contents to that old site. This would eliminate the need to import the message board and the gallery for example.
We typically charge for these projects $40 by the hour, but if the many who say they will help costs are as much willing to help to rebuild the site and if we can create that archive, I'd say we can lay the foundation for the new site and let your members help to finish it off. What do you think?
I am willing to do the above mentioned job for a flat fee of $250.
Here is what was said by us in response…
What about the forum and photos some of the photos can not be replaced
and the members who uploaded them are dead?
There are two options for both the forum and the gallery.
1) I can install a new forum/gallery on the new site and set a link to the old forum/gallery as an archive.
People will not be able to add things to the old forum/gallery, but the contents can still be seen.
This will be a very cost effective solution
2) I can look into importing the forum/gallery contents to the new site. This could however take a significant amount of time and would increase the costs.
I have done this numerous times before from Postnuke to other similar CMS back then and costs for such solutions are typically around $1000.
Since this has never been done before from PostNuke to a modern CMS by anyone, I cannot give an estimate based on experience.
I can however offer you to have a look once we have migrated the site. Maybe there is an easy fix. I cannot promise that there is one yet though.
So in short can we raise the funds that will be needed to repair the web page or should we shut it down and be done. I would say to be safe $2000.00 dollars minimum is needed. With $300.00 every year for the server.
What do you think?

Model 80 D, Chasses number 304570
WatchmanII - Oct 09, 2007 - Model 80 D, Chasses number 304570
Original history of this truck is posted in Diamond T Registry. The information above will get you to the original story.
Many hours of work - now the fun.
I have attended many car shows and antique truck and tractor shows. The 80 D is always very popular and I usually loose my voice in the afternoon, as so many people are interested in the truck and the history.
I have kept the truck original as much as possible. The truck was purchased new in Butte Montana for use on a dairy farm. Now the truck is in Ferndale, WA. Hope to see you!

2 Diamond T 3/4 ton panel trucks.
In 1939 my father and his brothers bought 2 Diamond T 3/4 ton panel trucks. one was sold in the early 40's but my father kept his until 1963. I have many pictures of our beloved Diamond T, which was not only our work truck but also our family transportation until I got a car in 1951. I still have the emblem from the horn, and the nameplate from the engine compartment. I am delighted that other people share my affection for Diamond T's. Tom Karones

1948 Diamont T
1936 Diamond T pickup
My brother and I are the proud owners of a Diamond T pickup. It was purchased and driven off the showroom floor by our late father. The Diamond T was used by our grandfather's company to haul dynamite and nitroglycerine in the oil fields of California. After the company was sold, my father bought the truck, and we have had it ever since. A couple of years ago, we had it refirbished to as close to its original state as possible.
Originally, the company purchased two Diamond Ts. I have been told that one was the deluxe and the other standard. One of the trucks was involved in an accident, and we still have some of the original parts.
I would be happy to communicate with any other Diamond T pick up owners.
I have been ready some of you answers to questions. I would like to set the record straight. White Motor Corporation bought REO in 1957 and then bought Diamond T in 1958. In 1960 White Motor Corporation moved Diamond T to Lansing, MI where the REO's and Diamond Ts and some model White Trucks came off the

In 1905 Charles Tilt formed the Diamond T Motor car Company of Chicago . During the first 6 years, custom built passenger cars were manufactured by hand in the rear of a small one story garage. Diamond T switched exclusively to building trucks, discontinuing its passenger line in 1911. His truck production prospered beyond belief. In the late 20,s with a desire for increased truck speed, Charles started streamlining the trucks. He repowered with the faster 6 cylinder engines, air cushioned pneumatic tires. Simultaneously he marketed nation wide and later world wide through a dealer-distributing organization an innovation at that time. These dealerships led to company growth as exemplified by the production of more than 50,000 heavy duty military vehicles for our armies in World War Two. Diamond T was responsible for many advances in truck design. These include the fin and tube radiator, the adoption of 7 bearing 6 cylinder truck engines, 4 wheel hydraulic brakes, fully enclosed deluxe cabs, and hydraulic shock absorbers as standard equipment for heavy duty trucks. In 1958 Diamond T was purchased by White Motor Corporation and became a division of White. It continued to be a leader in truck design.
