Cool ANNOUNCEMENT PAGE AND LINK SUGGESTED

Hello
I may be a bit old fashioned, I do contribute to Facebook but only since there are many links to Astronomy related folks there . I would hate to have to become a member of every social page as it is with all the inheritant dangers involved.
I pointed out that the Serene Screen forum did have a page devoted to announcements to avoid the clutter of all the other members posts regarding the devolpent of Beta 3.
That was done at the request of Jim himself ages ago to avoid that clutter and resultant necessary searching aound all the other ( important info ) posts.

I do consider that opening up in yet another social page just courts further confusion and disaster. I had raised that answer as I did see some posts by SS members who could not apparently find the announcement page and apparenntly did not even now of its existence.
Seeing all the Social activity on Social pages would add to the haystack. Why not just use our own forum ?
Paul

Thumbs Up Free addons for existing SS members on the Forum

I missed my main point in my suggestion just now posted.

All members on this forum are Logged in with username and logins, that was allowed so that we could all benifit by our own contributions to Jims Work.
For such efforts and time Jim has allowed us to benefit by having even the final product at NO CHARGE $ as in Beta 3 vers 1 > 10 >11 and so on.

To open up the New Products page to all and sundry would seem to be counter productive and endless checking of New Members validity to such benefit
just an afterthought

Paul Sydney Australia , member since 2001 and reciepiet of many such benefits
for my original $20 bucks
Many Thanks Jim
Paul

Embarassed To Feldon RE MY POSTS---- NOT UNDERSTOOD REQUEST

Hello Feldon,
You are asking what I want ?
I was just wanting to reinforce my opinion about earlier suggestion of a newer member of placing new announcements on to Twitter.

My understanding is that would advertise to all and sundry on a social discuss page a link to download the latest version of the MAT without the safeguard of having that page within the confines of the security login of this forum.
apart from looking for a needle in a very large Haystack instead of the new posting by Jim into our existing ANNOUNCEMENTS ETC pages , it would create endless 'validity' checking by Jim and yourself. You will see that I wrote rather copius notes on the earlier 3 posts and Jim had asked if there was a better method we could suggest.
BUT at the same time he re-posted the link for the Eel into that page and its very obviously visible for any valid logged in Member.
So my short answer to Jim , its good as it gets right now.
I look for future Announcements re further developments in due course, and bow out of my verbous replies..
best of luck from Paul Sydney Aust

I want to thank Jim so much for this extraordinary software. Residents of the Outer Banks, we were among those hardest hit by Hurricane Irene. Fortunately our home is intact, but we are digging out from under tons of mud and shattered lumber from our pier and sound-front structures. Ever since we got our power back, I have been spending my evenings collapsed in a chair watching these fabulous jewels of the sea laze around my monitor. Just what the doctor ordered for this trying time!
I adore the new eel. Excellent work!!

I like everything about the latest version -- except the fish. I check in every few months to see if the new fish models and behaviors are done. I think once they are, you will have a screensaver to rival Dream Aquarium, and I will finally be able to buy what I consider a finished product. Hurry, Mr. Sachs, hurry!

looking forward

This is my first post, so "Hello", administrator person!

Just wanted to let you know that I'm enjoying the screen saver! Only had it just over a month, but am already looking forward to hearing about newly added features or upgrades!

I'd actually like to run it as a program sometimes.

One question.. if set as default screen saver, does it use bandwidth when not in use? I turn it on manually whenever I take a break online (I do SEO copywriting by trade).

.. Saulie

Hi Saulie, welcome to the forum.

No, MA3 does not access the internet on its own, thus does not use bandwidth.

MA3 is great. I have really enjoyed. I don't really use it as a screen saver, I just run it and watch it. The attention to detail is amazing. I also like playing with all the settings. Like background colors and other settings.

If there was ever anything that deserves to be called digital art, MA3 is it.

I bought the CD with version 1.5 years ago. I loved it then and love 3.2 that much more. Jim Sachs, you are a remarkable artist. I love the eel that hides in the cave. I wonder if you still fly. I flew in the back of a 141 going to Viet Nam in 1965. I'm still flying helicopters in Florida.
All the best.
Mike

Hi, Mike - Nope, I don't fly any more.

Actually, I don't really do much any more besides taking care of my mother, who has Alzheimer's. Sometimes I get a few minutes to check the Forum while she's dozing.

Jim, I can relate. My mom lived with us her last two years with Alzheimer's. Not easy.

Should we start an Alzheimer's support thread in the coffee house because I think it might be helpful since so many of us go through it with a loved one?

There's at least the 3 of us and there are questions I would like to ask fly911 about his experiences that are too involved to put in this thread. If he doesn't mind talking about it.
Run you clever boy. And remember...

Marine Aquarium for windows

Hiya...this is the handsdown BEST aquarium program I've ever seen!It's great.I've had it now for about 3-4 days.No issues.Amazingly real.My brain is trying to get a grip on the reality of this.I know they're not real...but my mind can't seem to not feel like they are.I've had an aquarium like this for real...this is very similar.

Only one wish really...that the producer(s)of the fish species would include maybe some shrimps and a few more open anenomies.Also...I really wish that Elegance Coral would open up and flow with the water movement.THAT would be really cool.Plus a few more open corals flowing.But that's my wish list.This thing is SO cool...I really like it for just sitting quietly and watching.

I worked a few years in a Tropical Fish warehouse...these fish I took care of every day.Brings back good memories!Great program...excellent work guys!Thanks

New Year's Gift

Mr. Jim,
As you probably remember, I am enjoying “3” greatly…..I would like to share with you one thing I have done to enhance this screensaver even further as you instructed we could. Picture me, a 73yr old lady, in my home office with 3 computers….XP; Vista; 10….I work from my Vista many hours a day for our church’s web site and Bible Corrspondence Courses…..My MA3 is running on my 10 most of the time…..I love the cannon guitar so much that I was afraid I may be getting TOO much of it….Like mess with my mind or something. SO….During my past surfing experiencing and listening to Cannon played by so many different techniques, I came across a young gentleman from Korea who is so gifted….Sungha Jung….you may have heard of him….I found an album, “Irony Albums” and downloaded it and it has 11 pieces in it. Yes, this little old lady geek managed to insert them into the music area with “Cannon Guitar”…..I click on “Random Play” and WaaaDaaaa. Now that is my New Years’ present from you. Thanks for all your hard work and I hope you and your mother have a good year.
