I ran a site since 2004 that didnt really have much on it but a few free downloads of some of the paper models I did over the years...
after a number of major headaches from domain name disputes to multiple hacking and DNS issues... I have decided to call it a day and let the sun set on miniature-games.com...
However.. new domain names have been purchased and im working on an updated site that will still have all the past models as free downloads, the site will also focus on a new range of figures, models and scenery I am working on... of which the first has gone on sale on wargame vault and RPGnow...
Thanks so much for everyone who has supported me with miniature-games and its trying times... the new site will be ready soon...
Just a quick hi and something you may want to think about: You can make a base domain name (like myReallyBigWebsite.com) and then use subdomain names (also called CNames) like miniatures.myReallyBigWebsite.com. A good example is my www.sim1.biz website. I work on projects by making a subdomain (like tcf.sim1.biz) and then I can work on it and yet not need extra domain names. (Or to put that another way - the domain name [ie: http://www.sim1.biz] just gets extended to also have the subdomain - but you don't have to pay for the new domain name.) Just something to think about.
Also - you no longer need a static ip address from someplace like AT&T. Instead, you can use something like mystaticipaddress.com for the static ip address (at $20.00 a month or $100.00 for a year's usage) and what they do is to give you a copy of OpenVPN with the static ip address embedded in it. Then, you can put the static IP address on a laptop and take it with you no matter where you go. :-)
bravesirkevin: @vermin King, you should still be able to download the stuff you purchased from me again, if that helps. If you have any issues, just drop me a direct message and I'll send through whichever ones you can't download

Vermin King: And none of the Streetpaper Advent models were in there, and only seven of bravesirkevin's figures are in there, and none of my purchased ones... And the old Canon kid's models are still beyond reach

Vermin King: Oo, oo! I just saw the Olli Bizer models loading!

Vermin King: I feel less 'at a complete loss', now. I found a thumb drive of 'Papercraft'. Not sure how old it is, but it does have the Zio models, old Streetpaper, old Canon and HP models, etc. Now it is just an overwhelming loss

wyvern: VK: Now you also have the "joy" of the painfully slow shutdown and reboot every time (at least once a month) that Windows is made "better" by yet more unwanted clutter being downloaded to your system, plus a scatter of useless "desktop.ini" files.

Vermin King: After 3 1/2 hours of updating, I got this xxxxxxxx Win10 computer runnable. I'm really going to miss the ease of Win 7. Amazing all the stuff I did here that is just gone ... except for what I posted

cowboyleland: It looks like you guys are busy, but I would like to point out that the "Ghoul Design Tutorial." which would start to answer bobsomething 's question from Aug 10, is MIA (again)
