Many Thanks Thank You Bob Goodwin, N4HCI, for taking over the position of Webmaster during my recent hospital stay and recuperation at home. It has been over a month now and things are finally getting back in order for me.
Bob is also Net Manager and Secretary/Treasure for ECARS. He volunteered to maintain our web site in my absence and has done an exemplary job, no easy task considering his already heavy workload.
I am looking forward to getting back to the tasks at hand and will strive to maintain the high standards set forth by ECARS. Again Bob, Thank You!

New Membership Database The ECARS Webmaster has implemented a new on-line SQL Membership Database. It is currently live and all Member Lookups from the website are accessing this database. For the next several months, the Secretary / Treasurer will continue to maintain the old Access membership database as a backup, in parallel with this new system.
This new SQL database has replaced the previous method in which an Access database was maintained by the Secretary / Treasurer on his local computer, and which required him to periodically create an external active members database and upload it to the website. Since modern website host server software no longer supports directly reading Access database files, the Webmaster was having to convert the Access db to SQL after each active members table upload by the Secretary / Treasurer. This was cumbersome and created substantial delays between membership applications and when the data would appear on the website. Membership updates are now immediately visible on the website as soon as the Secretary / Treasurer enters the data via the on-line data entry tools.
If you see any problems with the data in the Member Lookup utility, please notify the Secretary / Treasurer, who will research and resolve the issue.
