RE:Cast Iron M-H Memorabilia

There seems to be a shortage of reply buttons again.

Here is quite a common and often seen piece of cast iron, the handle from a horse rake.

RE:Cast Iron M-H Memorabilia

I found these two shoe or Suffolk coulters (as we call them) from an old MH seed drill in Canada one year - very ornate items hanging on a white wall

RE:Cast Iron M-H Memorabilia

Here's another rather nice M-H drill wheel which I don't think I have put on before.  Notice the flaw in the casting of the lettering  M-H> and not <M-H>

RE:Cast Iron M-H Memorabilia

At the risk of getting too techical, here is the situation with regard to the
"REPLY" button.  If you notice, when the reply button disappears, it is always on
long, many-responses threads.  This is how it was explained to us.  Although we
have discovered the reason for the problem, the fix is not easy!!  Here is what we
have been told:


Regarding the reply buttons, good news is we found the problem.  Bad news is there
isn't a fix for it that I'm aware of.  The problem is the maximum length for a URL is 450
characters.  I know you're going to say well there is only 60 or 70 characters in the
address bar.  That is true although the URL stored in the database is much different.
 For example this is what you'd see in the database

/00001617/00001619/00001620/00001621/00001622/00001623/00001624/00001625/
00001626/00001627/00001637/00001638/00001639/00001640/00001641/00001642/
00001643/00001644/00001645/00001646/00001654/00001655/00001656/00001657/
00001658/00001659/00001660/00001661/00001662/00001814/00001815/00001816/
00001817/00001818/00001819/00001820/00001821/00001822/00001823/00001824/
00001825/00001826/00001828/00001829/00001830/00001831/00001832/00001833/
00001834/00001840
 
is actually rewritten to be a friendly URL and looks like
this: http://masseycollectors.com/Discussion?forumid=2&threadid=221
 
If you get into the technical part of it each set of numbers between the /  and /  is a post
ID.  So every time a user replies to a post another ID gets added.  For instance if you
had 5 replies in a message and 4 people replied to the original message and 1 replied
to one of the other replies the code would look like this:
 
/00000001/ (initial post by Joe)
/00000001/00000002/ (reply to Joe by Gary)
/00000001/00000002/00000003/ (reply to Gary by Joe)
/00000001/00000002/00000003/00000004 (reply to Joe by Gary)
/00000003/00000005/ (reply to Joe from John)
 
As you can see it adds up fast.  The maximum number of replies to a single post is 49
(which if you ask me is a pretty lengthy conversation!).  Again, I'm looking into where
the limitation resides (Kentico, Internet standard, server standard or otherwise) and will
let you know once I find out if anything else can be done.
 
I apologize for the problems with this.  My suggestion would be to do as you are
already doing and find another reply and reply to it.

Hope this helps a little!!

Gary

RE:Cast Iron M-H Memorabilia

Gary,

Thanks - Clear as MUD!  So lets stick to cast iron - something we can see, feel, appreciate or siply weigh in down at Joe's.

It is in fact my last board full of cast iron stuff.  Hope you've all enjoyed the show but I have about run out of further material

Thanks for sharing your cast iron memorabillia with us. I think I had seen most of it first hand but it was nice to see it on the Web as well.

Thanks

Alan

RE:Cast Iron M-H Memorabilia

Looks like we are close to totally blowing this thread up, but I too want to thank our dear friend John for posting all the cast iron items for all to see.  Most of the items are not found in the US so it is nice to see something a little different but still part of the Massey family.

I still have not picked up my Blackstone seat yet but it will make a nice addition to my small collection of cast items!!

Thanks John!!

Gary
