Transfer to groups.io is now complete

Frank Stamford
 

Good morning all - this message is coming from the new LRRSA Group at groups.io

The old group at Yahoo will remain in existence but I will be closing it to placement of new messages in a few days. 

All the messages, photographs, and files on the Yahoo group have been transferred to groups.io, as have all the members with working email addresses. 

You can find the new group at: https://groups.io/g/LRRSA

You can send messages from that page. You can also send messages to the group using the following email address: LRRSA@groups.io

Regards,
Frank


IMPORTANT - transfer of this Group to groups.io

Frank Stamford
 

Hello all,


This is a follow up to my message of 7 May in which I prematurely advised of the transfer of this Group from Yahoo to groups.io.


The transfer of this Group is now about to start. It may take several days.


Please refrain from sending any messages to this Group until you are advised that the transfer is complete. Any messages sent during the transfer may be lost.


From your viewpoint the transfer process will be completely automatic.


Regards,

Frank  


Re: CSR history book 1956

There is still sugar cane growing in the Royal Botanic Gardens, although clearly it doesn't grow fast or prolific enough to be commercially viable in Sydney.

My understanding is TA Scott owned a big boarding house on the north facing peninsula just to the south of the present Tascott station (so around that curve to the south of Tascott) and it was the railway halt at TA Scott's boarding house that became known as Tascott. There are photos floating around of Tascott station with the big boarding house up on the hill. It would have had majestic views up towards The Broadwater. I think it burned down about the turn of the 20th Century.

Bit of rail trivia I found in that CSR book regarding a link between sugar and the suburb and station Tascott, near Gosford NSW. It was named after Thomas Alison Scott  as in TA Scott, which gives Tascott.

 

The book states; ….. as early as 1817 canes, said to have been introduced from Tahiti by Thomas Alison Scott, had been planted in the Sydney Botanic Gardens. Scott was appointed by the Government in 1823 to take over the growing of sugar cane at the penal settlement of Port Macquarie, and in 1827 succeeded in making some crude sugar. He was dismissed by Governor Darling in 1828, but continued to advocate the development of canegrowing in New South Wales. Scott claimed to have supplied many planters with advice and with cane for planting when the industry made a second start on the northern rivers of New South Wales and in Queensland. Captain Louis Hope, the first commercially successful plantation owner in Australia, obtained some of his cane cuttings from Scott, who was later granted a small pension in official recognition of his pioneering work. He was given a grant of land at Point Clare, near Gosford in New South Wales, and died there in 1881. The village of Tascott, near Gosford, perpetuates his name.

Re: Transferring this group to groups.io is stalled !!

Frank Stamford
 


Hello all,

It seems my message below was premature. You can continue sending messages to this Group, at least for the time being.

The transfer process has come to a halt, and the next action is in the hands of groups.io

I have no idea when it might happen, if at all.

If it starts moving gain I will let you know. We would not want messages submitted during the process as they would probably get lost.

Regards,
Frank

As a result of the suggestions from several members I am about to start the transfer process of the group from Yahoo to groups.io. This may take up to 48 hours, although it is largely automatic.


Yahoo Groups seem to have a doubtful future and the system is not being maintained. All the past messages will be transferred to groups.io.


You will not need to do anything to remain with the LRRSA Group, just wait until we tell you the process is completed.

No, you will still be able to to log in to Groups.io using the existing e-Mail address and password that was used for Yahoo Groups. The only note of caution is if you used a different e-Mail address for the Digest to that of your yahoo e-Mail address. Once you have logged in again, it is possible to re-set anew all or any passwords for a fresh start if desired.

Suggest the LRRSA Moderator contact the IRS Moderator, Ken Scanes for re-assurance.
Thanks for the suggestion Philip, but I do not need reassurance. I am a member of the IRS Group and have been closely watching their transfer as it happened. And the same with another Group.

Of the other groups that have moved to Groups.io, one with a very big back archive of messages going back many years is the Industrial Railway Society, and their moderator had very little trouble with the move. Furthermore the archive remains searchable right back to the beginning.

There is little incentive to remain with Yahoo.

There'll also be a week or two of "oh, I don't like it" "yahoo was better" "I prefer the old Group" but I'd predict they'll be gone (either the complaints or the complainers!!) in less than a month.

I am a moderator but I am not sure if I have the authority in Yahoo Groups to initiate the transfer process. It might need to be the person who started the Yahoo group. We can discuss this at the meeting tomorrow night.

 

I did some research on the transfer process about six months ago. It is fairly straightforward - providing the instructions are followed stage by stage.

Re: : RE: Moving to Groups.io

While I have no problems at all with this Group, and very rarely any Yahoo issues, I’m also a Yahoo activist and aware that some countries are having massive problems.

As long as we have under 1Gb of files and photos, Groups.io is free-to-use and by far the best technical alternative.
There is risk, in that it’s a one-man-band, but Roderick is right to say we can keep the old group going as long as Verizon supports it.
By the way, 'Yahoo management' isn’t deliberately ‘arrogant’ - it’s merely been disbanded! 
Groups is like an abandoned airliner on autopilot, and it’s amazing that it flies at all.

I shan’t move my own Groups in a hurry, in case Verizon gets its act together, but I’m not hopeful that a new team can do much without documentation that I suspect was lost years ago.
I have them all backed-up to disc, including this one, if anyone needs to know.\\
