ibiblio are having some problems today. This means connections to Celestial Matters is erratic.

They are working on it, so we hope everything is back to normal sometime later today. In the mean time, we??ll experience some outages.

Sorry, guys, but I would really be grateful if we kept this thread for announcements from CM.

The last 4 posts are entirely unrelated to
CM as far as I can make out. They should be discussed in the bugs forum for example.

Thanks,
Bye Fridger

Our host, ibiblio, still has some hardware issues, so our CM is temporarily unavailable. Current status is, probably back up in about twenty minutes... They are working on it right now.

++++++++++++++++++++++++
I just noticed that our Celestial Matters site and forum are mentioned/linked absolutely NOWHERE in any official place where "Celestia related sites" are referred to!
++++++++++++++++++++++++

CM is online since Christmas 2006 and undoubtedly some of the best textures, texture tools , models, add-ons for Celestia may be found there, let alone lots of Celestia relevant forum discussion.

Moreover practically ALL active members of the Celestia community are registered members of Celestial Matters!

Still no reference to CM exists at

  • The official Celestia link page
    http://www.celestiaproject.net/celestia/
    under Related Sites

    However, one finds completely DEAD sites like "Mostly Harmless" the last entry of which was in 2004... ;-)
  • The Celestia WIKI book.
    http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Celestia
    Nothing related to CM despite an extensive collection of references with relation to Celestia.
  • The CM Thread Celestial Matters News in this forum is NOT a sticky post in 'users' and has correspondingly moved out of sight (users/page 3).
  • There is NO mention of CM under Celestia Resources in the README of the Celestia distribution!

    Yet, instead, one finds e.g. Pat Suwalski's site referenced there, which is almost void of Celestia content apart from a few screenshots! The last Celestia related entry refers to version 1.4.0. We all know when that came out.


So let me suppose it was only negligence. ;-)

Wow!

Chris?

It is just negligence--I'll be the first to admit that I'm not a very good webmaster. If you can take care of adding a note about CelestialMatters to the README (still time to get it into 1.5.1, too), I'll handle updating the web site, forum, and the WikiBook. I do want to point out that anyone can edit the WikiBook, however ;)

It's listed in the Sticky titled Start here: FAQs, features, news & collections

That sticky was created because people were complaining that there were too many stickies, causing no postings to be visible on the main page.

Selden,

come on, this must be a joke and makes the case even worse....

Do you really think that the relevance of CM and all that it offers is to be seen at the same level as the thread "post your pictures here" that is next to the reference to CM, all being rather far down the list??

Those were added later by others.

I'm not about to spend all my time reformatting the forums.

Please feel free to add an appropriate sticky if you want, as you seem to have done.

@Whoever added the CM links in the Wikibook:
http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Celestia

Two of the three links were either non-functional or incorrect. I have corrected them.

Tomorrow, May 12th at about 8:30 a.m. EDT, ibiblio will be going offline for a little while for maintenance. The CM will be unavailable during this time. It should not be more than an hour or so before everything is back to normal.

Hi all,

these binary raw data about Dione (23k) and Enceladus (14k), I prepared for further use with my F-TexTools,

http://forum.celestialmatters.org/viewtopic.php?t=224

They might be of interest to some...

Enjoy,

Celestial Matters is down for the moment.
The reason is that ibiblio, our host, are upgrading their database systems today, which affects our pages and forum, since our MySql accounts are offline for the duration. Downtime should not be for more than a few hours.

Ok, we were back for some hours and now back down. It seems the ibiblio people ran into some compability problems with a lot of old databases, so they took their servers offline (purposely) tonight, to work on it. Hopefully, it won?t be too long,
