Re: Did you ever walk out of the cinema in the middle of a film?

I suffered through The Blair Witch Project. It gave me an awful headache and I thought it was terrible but I didn't walk out.

Re: XCSki Forum Update / Outage / Issues - 2019

I probably would have sorted it out on my own but it would have taken me much longer. Turns out the host now loads a certain module with with PHP7 that was not loading with PHP5. The forum software was loading the module through the config and as a result of the changeover the module was being loade...

Re: XCSki Forum Update / Outage / Issues - 2019

The host updated the server from PHP5 to PHP7. As a result I had to update the config. Some threads were broken even after changing the config. I talked a powerful kung fu master friend of mine into lending a hand and he sorted it out today. I believe everything is good to go. Let me know if anythin...

Thank you gentlemen! I've been largely scarce here. I try to check in daily to review registrations and unread posts to see if there are any issues.

XCSki Forum Update / Outage / Issues - 2019

Latest forum software update tonight. If anyone has issues or notices anything goofy please give me a shout. I see that we lost some formatting and links. I'll patch up the header, probably adjust the width of the page, and add the unread link back to the top of the page tomorrow or this weekend. As...

Re: Nordic spoof and training videos...

WTF did I just watch. We had a guy at the local shop. He used to ask some of the other racers what they ate before a race and they told him a pound of bacon and a 2 ltr bottle of coke. He did it and the results were not pretty.

Re: Elite racers and their gear

Do you think that the numbers on the ski do not match the actual numbers of the ski? This has been done in other sports to fool the competition.

Re: Incredible race by Simen Hegstad Krüger

The reasonable thing to do would have been to not visit this forum if it was suspected that so-called spoilers could appear. The reasonable thing to do would have been to use a subject line that does not include spoilers or even hints and also used the text, spoiler alert in the title. "Incredible ...

Re: do hobbies/sports typically have no forums?

I tend to only go looking for a forum if there is a specific detail about something that I cannot otherwise find online. When Gregg started this forum it was the only one out there for XC Skiing. I believe there are a couple of others out there now and maybe one that is just another sub forum. I hav...

XCSki Forum Update / Outage / Issues - 2017/2018

Apologies to anyone that has just joined us and has been sitting the the waiting room for far too long. I had a fairly long list of registrants (and an even longer list of spam registrations) to go through but I am finally caught up. I'm sure one or two spam accounts slipped through. I forum spam se...

Re: What made you start XC skiing?

I skied when I was very young with my father at the local trails here and in the U.P. mostly trudging though snow making our own trails. Through my teens and 20's I had other interests than nordic skiing. When the founder of this site passed in 2008, his wife gave me a set of his skis and poles and ...
