    • COMING PALMTALK CHANGES - PLEASE READ   02/14/2017

      In the coming week (probably beginning this weekend), several major changes will be occurring with PalmTalk. The result will be short periods of complete closure, or of limited viewing (that is, no posting - but viewing still possible). These changes are major and unexpected complications are always a possibility. So, please be patient and bear with us. For those interested, the first phase will be a migration of the entire site to a new more powerful server. After this is completed, a major upgrade to the newest version of the forum software will then be attempted. It is hoped that these improvements, along with some new configurations of various parameters made possible with the new server capabilities, will result in an elimination of some error messages and glitches which have been plaguing various tasks and viewing recently. As with any upgrade there will probably be some new and/or changed features, or ways of viewing and/or using the forum. I anticipate these will be minor, and as always if there is anything confusing or needing explanation, we will set up a topic to discuss them.

Jody, last year I got a booklet mailed to my house with some interesting articles(Attalea article was good) as well as the list of palms available(including the names of the vendors). Will something similar be offered this year, or no? Thanks!

Yes, the PalmReport (booklet with articles and plant sale list) is at the printers and will be mailed out early this week. SFPS members should expect to receive it sometime in the next few days before the palm sale.

Any chance of the list of vendors being posted here, even after the sale? As someone who lives several states away and can't attend, I'd love the chance to know if there are vendors that I could contact later to see if they'd mail order or for future trips to Florida. Of course, I hope they sell everything, but in case they have extras.... Thanks!
