Re: 994 KB Maximum Attachment Photo Sizes

We appreciate your continuation of this forum and efforts to resolve this strange issue. I asked one of my IT techy friends what it may be and he chucked and thought phpBB forums were dead :oops: But as a crude work around if you set max upload to 3 MiB would it allow us to go past 1mb file size I ...

I did increase the number of images per post to 5. file size = 994 KB attached file size = 1040 KB failed I co...

Re: 504 KB Maximum Attachment Photo Sizes

Re: 504 KB Maximum Attachment Photo Sizes

The lower case 'i' is what is confusing the terminology. The forum software is a bit unusual in that respect, also the default language is UK English so that may be why the size terms are a bit off. The end result is pretty much the same, 1 MiB is 1024 KiB, or 1,048,576 Bytes, or 1MB. One mebibyte (...

Re: 504 KB Maximum Attachment Photo Sizes

The limit is actually 1Mb, so not sure why you can only attach a 504Kb file. 3 images is the limit for an individual post.

Re: Server Maintenance 4/25

Maintenance downtime was pretty quick, a failed drive was causing the raid controller to beep and the datacenter folks swapped the bad drive. File system has been rebuilt and we are all set.

firewall upgrade to my M30 platform

The most significant modification I'll make to my truck is the installation of a '31 indented firewall and '31 gas tank. Was the firewall spot welded, riveted or were machine screws used to fasten the firewall to the body? From the random holes along the body where the firewall slips in it would app...

cab wood hardware

I purchased a complete closed cab wood kit many years ago, though now looking at my original wood it appears to be in pretty good shape. I'm inclined to leave it be and only replace the roof ribs that were broken. Though I do need a complete nut and bolt kit, but I'm not seeing a specific kit listed...

Rear body bolt location and seat pan

My cab floor was a rusted mess so I installed a new seat pan and bottom rear section of the cab (along with rear cab corners and bottom). I don't recall exactly where the seat frame gets fastened to the floor plan, seems to fit better with the body to frame bolts just in front though having a notch ...

Dormant project coming back to life!

Hey fellow AA’ers! I bought my truck in 1999 and shortly after that I dismantled it to completely rebuild it. I pretty much finished the running gear in the first couple years. The project went dormant for 15 years (family, kids, built two houses, etc) but I’ve finally cleared a spot in the shop and...
