This Web Site on Mobile Devices

The webmaster is aware of the fact that this web site doesn't look as intended on mobile devices (most cell phones, some tablets). It is recommended that you visit this site using a desktop or laptop computer only. When the site was redesigned last, HTML 5 and CSS 3 were not available or not yet implemented in all popular browsers. However, they are now becoming the standard. These two technologies provide browser-level support to deal with the small screens that mobile devices have. However, from ongoing testing, it is now clear that a substantial amount of re-work of this site will be required to (hopefully) maintain the same look. It currently is the webmaster's plan to try to roll out a small-screen-device-compatible version of this web site some time in 2020.

About the Webmaster

My name is Peter Vanvliet. I live in Houston, Texas. I have been maintaining web sites since January 1994.

I own my own software products company, called Fourth Ray Software. This is my main activity. I maintain web sites for several select clients as my secondary activity.

When there is some time and energy left over at the end of the day or on the weekends, I am building a 4ft by 8ft, multiple-section, exact-scale replica diorama of the Hazel Mine complex in southwestern Canonsburg, Pennsylvania as it was in the summer of 1924. This industry was served by the Pennsylvania Railroad's Chartiers Branch.

I started model railroading in the 1970s, in N-scale (1:160). In mid-1999, I switched my main hobby from woodworking to model railroading. In mid-2008 I switched from N-scale to S-scale. I became the NASG's webmaster in late 2011.

Please use any of the methods below to contact me.

But First, A Note About File-sharing Services

There are many file-sharing services available, and they may make your life easier. However, from this webmaster's perspective, they tend to have and create a bunch of extra overhead. So, I will not accept any submissions of files on a file-share service that requires any kind of log-in, account-creation, or other such efforts. If the file that you want to submit for my consideration for use on this web site can be directly accessed on a third-party's site, then I will take a look. However, please, consider using any of these methods below for submitting files for consideration.

Send a Message via e-mail

You can contact the webmaster via e-mail using the webmaster@nasg.org address (click the link to start a new e-mail message). All e-mail is read and (if necessary) responded to, as soon as possible. If you are expecting a reply and you haven't heard back within 24 hours, it could be that the message did not make it across. Try the form below instead. All e-mail correspondence with the NASG webmaster is considered private. Your e-mail address will not be used for any other purpose other than to try to respond to your question. If your topic includes information that one or more of the NASG officials (e.g. the Membership Secretary or Dispatch Editor) should be made aware of, the webmaster may forward some or all of your e-mail's message to them.

Send a Message via a Form

Instead of composing an e-mail, you can fill out the simple form on the right. It does the same thing, in that once you press the Send button, an e-mail message will be sent to the webmaster.

Note that forms require Javascript to be enabled in your browser.

Note that the "Answer this" field requires the correct answer, which we use to prevent automated submission of spam (i.e. it is used to make sure that a human being is submitting this form).

 

Send Photo Contributions

Use this form to send photo contributions, convention presentation files, PDFs, short videos, or any other file which you would like for us to consider for use on this web site. The maximum file size is restricted to 40MB (megabytes). Sending the file means that you have given us permission to post the file or its content on this web site. If you are sending a photo and it is used on the web site, your name will be used for the photo credit. If you were not the photographer, please state the name of the person in the Description field. The Description field is optional, but it would help us to keep the photo and text together.

"Send" button becomes enabled when all data has been provided (tab to the next field to have the field's value checked). Note that forms require Javascript to be enabled in your browser.
