You may recall the story when this shot first appeared on the Pasty Cam, how that Art Hill, former Suomi College professor and renowned musician, got a sudden surprise on the way from the sauna to the dining room. Having slipped accidentally in the snow, he stoically held that pose while someone grabbed a camera.

In recent months I've received a growing number of emails from visitors trying to post messages in the "old" Pasty Cam Archives... only to discover the posting function would not work. Some had spent a fair amount of time crafting a message related to the picture, then clicking the 'Submit' button they would get a chilling message that the forum was not accepting new postings.

My apologies to all who fell into this unintended trap. A few years back the makers of the original software for these forum pages stopped providing updates, and hakers found ways to spam the discussion board. We quietly changed the underlying software to a version which allowed for registration. You may have noticed that old Pasty Cam pages have "discuss/messages" in the URL, and the newer ones (since October 2004) have "discus/messages" (discus spelled with one 's'). With thousands of pages in the old format, all we could do was to turn off the posting feature. But it still left a form visible which provided the unexpected surprise.

Last night (woohoo!) I discovered a way to turn off that form. You can still read the very interesting old messages, but at the bottom of each page you're admonished to return to the current Pasty Cam conversation. For a good example of this, see the original appearance of today's Shoebox Memory.

Again our thanks to Julie Beck for a wonderful 'glimpse of life in the U.P.'

Have a good week :o)

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh I would call that a bone chilling glimpse of the U.P.

Maybe some of those Tech students are right ......they often say they think their professor is crazy ......ah this picture would be proof...???!!! LOL

Sure is good to see the sun shinning eh ??

God's Blessings on you all ..... even you Blue eyes %^)

Actually it is a great picture......brave soul.

You are supposed to close the pores when done with the sauna. I find a cool shower works, Prof. Hill prefers the "Extreme Sauna" I see.

Congrats, Charlie, on fixing the problem on the "old" Pasty Cam Archives. It is frustrating to compose a post and then find it doesn't go through. I haven't had that problem on this site but have on several others. Thanks for the fix.

That's my dad! Boy I sure do miss his dry/droll sense of humor and wisdom.
