:D thanks for the offer, but in fact we never were looking for hosting - we're fine with sourceforge at the moment.
It was only the generous offer of some coppermine supporters that made people think we were short on webspace :wink: , so a lot of people volunteered to host us for free (thanks to all of you!).
If the need should arise, it's good to know that there are people we could ask for help.

Hello Everyone,

I hope Greg is well and shows up soon. I found this board through Hotscripts. I'd been wondering what happened to Chezgreg.com.

I'm not a programmer but I think this is one of the best scripts there is. I run an Arts & Culture site which would not be the same without Coppermine gallery.

I'll be sure to give an excellent rating at Hotscripts.

Thank you for taking over the project.

Hi all.

I found this link a few time ago (don't remember how):

http://chez.greg.free.fr/

Take a look at the photo software. I would say it's basically the same.

C'ya

Can't remember talking with Greg since i submitted the Norwegian language files, just a small update since.

Maybe he is out of time? Anyway, i think he will return back and find coppermine here.

does anybody have a copy of the "online doc" that used to be at http://www.chezgreg.net/cpgmanual/ - please contact me.

Sorry if I missed something, but I found this: http://www.p-box.dk/manual_1.htm

It lacks the images, but hey ;)

Also, I'd like to apoligise about my post about Greg... I'm really sorry, I didn't mean to offend anybody. (I know that might sound lame)

P.S.: http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php?topic=138 > please add this to the downloads if possible

EDIT: and here's the original text from the site's main page:

Quote
Coppermine Photo Gallery is a picture gallery script.

Users can upload pictures with a web browser or Windows XP Web Publishing Wizard (thumbnails are created on the fly), add comments, send e-cards, rate pictures and have their own gallery.

The admin can manage albums/pictures/comments and batch add pictures that have been uploaded by FTP.

The script has a theme system and is available in the following languages: Bosnian, Bulgarian, Chinese (traditional and simplified), Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese (standard and Brazilian), Russian, Slovenian, Spanish and Turkish.

The script uses PHP, a MySQL database and the GD library (version 1.x or 2.x) or ImageMagick to make the thumbnails. An install script makes the installation very fast and easy.

Watch the demo, download the script if you like it and use the forum if you need support.

What's most interesting to me about the site you posted is that they seem to be photos taken by Greg while on trips in Africa and Korea.  Let's hope he's out getting great pics of Antarctica to share with us!

How about putting out  "Please help find Greg" in the README of the release?

I received a mail over the contact form on this site from Jacques who lives in Paris next door to Greg's last know address. He promised to take a look if his name is still on the doorbell and also check the mailbox.
EZ asked his relative who lives in Paris and is a lawyer to check on him too.
Best thing would be if anyone knew a french cop - they should be able to access all data about a person. Anyone knows a french cop?

I vote for not putting it into the release (only here on the site) - might turn out to be a chain mail after some time...

Nice one!  I'm curious as to how did he know to contact you in the first place though  :D

Ugh... I can see the title now, "Missing software developer, forward this to everyone you know!"

That would be bad.

Not the entire site, only a few pages that are frequently used pages are cached.  Anyway, just to finish up this topic and for public informational purposes, we have recovered most of the stuff that's needed from the chezgreg.net. Depending on circumstances, we may have a reference board from chezgreg.net put up or integrated to the current board. That's still being ironed out.

On the lighter site, the new site should be up shortly.

Greg's back

Greg has finally given a live sign - he is well and is in Japan at the moment, so our "quest" to search Greg has ended. I'll update all with a more detailed posting soon. Thanks for all who volunteered and tried to help us finding the whereabouts of Greg.

Here's the eMail I received from Greg:

Hi Joachim,

So after a long time here are some news from me.

Some months a go, I had a sad event in my life and during some time I was not in a mood to do anything. In August I moved to Yokohama in Japan for my work and in order to have a big change in my life. I should stay there for two years.

In september, my webhost deactivated my website because it was repeatingly exceeding its allowed bandwidth. As I did not took my login password info with me in Japan, I have not been able to anything.

I am really happy to see that you have created coppermine.sourceforge.net and that other people are now involved in the development of the script. I am also glad to see that you have managed to obtain the db and file dumps from my webhost.

I am currently in France for some vacations and feel much better than some time ago. I also thank you for your "snail-mail". My work in Japan keeps me very busy and for the time being, I think I could hardly continue to work on the script with other people that have joined the project. So the script is yours now. Maybe in some months I I will have more free time and will be able to contribute to the script again or at least to the forums.

Once again thank you for having taken over the project, it would have been a pity that the script desappeared. I will contact my webhost in order to redirect www.chezgreg.net/coppermine to coppermine.sourceforge.net if you agree about that.

Best regards

Greg
