Re: Timo's Hobbyist's Guide to the UFP Starfleet

There's an address towards the bottom, in a box right above the About/Advertising/etc links. It looks like the address the links in OP go to, but they are actually directly to the .pdf's. Copy-paste that into your address bar; if you have some sort of PDF reader, you should be fine. I had the same problem at first.

Re: Timo's Hobbyist's Guide to the UFP Starfleet

I'm in the process of reading the files now. So far I'm in early-TNG territory and there's a lot of good, well-thought-out stuff. A definitive thumbs up!

Re: Timo's Hobbyist's Guide to the UFP Starfleet

I'm not sure what sort of a storage medium would be practical for these things. Where do I upload a bunch of .pdf files for free and for ease of access? My usual storage slot ImageShack allowed me to do this once, but now it's claiming incorrect file type...

...Incidentally, does anybody know of a way to connect the gaudy Star Fleet Battles fightercraft names (Tomcat, Hornet, Eagle, Phantom - SFB reveled in the total absence of innovation from the writing!) with the assorted designs?

I'll try and complete the small craft section some day, and I sort of like the little star-destroyer-with-canards-and-two-engines craft that appears to be the F-14 Tomcat of the SFB universe. The other ugly ducklings might warrant an entry, too. Is there a resource, say, a miniatures sales page, that could shed light on this? Or are the names and the artwork actually unrelated?

Timo, you could try mediashare. I used it in the past, and was able to upload pdf files as well.

Never mind about mediashare, I just logged in and they don't support pdf's anymore. I am trying out Depositfiles right now.

Re: Timo's Hobbyist's Guide to the UFP Starfleet

What if you zipped up the pdf files?

Or get a gmail account and use google docs to host the files?

Re: Timo's Hobbyist's Guide to the UFP Starfleet

Neither ImageShack nor MediaShare seem to appreciate zip files, either. Hmm. I'm on Gmail already, for serious business, but perhaps I'll create a new identity for these purposes?

Re: Timo's Hobbyist's Guide to the UFP Starfleet

Yup, that's me relying on ImageShack to nicely accept updated versions of the files and removing the old ones before attempting the upload. Which then failed.

Just drop me a PM with the address where you want the files to be delivered, and I'll make a nice personal package just for you. (Any of you, that is.)

Yes, you should be able to just create another account just for your Trek hobby and upload to your free 10gb Google Drive

Set the share of the file and/or folder to Public or Unique URL and there you go.

Hi Timo,

I have been reading your Guide to the UFP Starfleet avidly and was gutted when they were taken down. The main reason I recently joined Trek BBS was to ask you if you could please post the latest version of all three sections of your fantastic guide to my email address. I look forward to future updates to your guide!

Cheers,

Matt

Re: Timo's Hobbyist's Guide to the UFP Starfleet

Hmm... Let's see how this works. The Guide is now available (still split in those same three pdf files because that's the maximum size of Word file I can comfortably work with when fiddling with these) through Google Docs. Direct link here:

Re: Timo's Hobbyist's Guide to the UFP Starfleet

Timo, was your reference in your guide to the USS Heinemann (a testbed ship that used multiple numbers and positions of warp engines) an homage to "Mythbusters"?
