This thread has copies of some posts from the Throwback thread.   Seems to be an error.

Nice, an old-school template! (and it loads very fast!) :)

Since you seem to know about template stuff, I have this question for you: do you know how to add a 'remote upload' box? For example, you have this URL: http://linux.com/distro.iso and want to download this ISO file directly to the server, in the current shared folder. So, you write that URL in a input box and press a 'Save' submit button, and then the HFS server starts downloading the file, and when it ends, it puts the file in the current shared folder. How handy this may come in? Imagine you are on a mobile connection and want to leave the server downloading a file, so when you come home, you have the file ready (and it's automatically shared on that folder). Is this doable?...

(If you don't get the idea, I can give you another explanation)

Well done!

P.S. My other project is startfetch.com  Picture this, you're at your pc, your phone messenger goes off (facebook, hangouts, whatsapp), and do you go get it to type on the little screen if the battery permits, or do you go to startfetch.com, click once and enjoy the full size keyboard?  Peek under the hood (view source) and check the code.  That another case of "looks simple, after it is done" and that all fits in just 24k.
That was fast! opening StartFetch.com was blazing fast (I see you've encoded icons in Base64 to speed things up, nice trick). I really miss those good old days where every website was almost as fast as that. But on these days, only checking emails via webmail, could take 1.5MB at best (and all thanks to WebFonts and JavaScript libraries). Thanks God there is still POP3/IMAP to check emails, but for all the rest, I get used to overload my browser to view just a simple website. And the same happens with software and games, everything it's made to make our PCs slow without sense. That's why I love HFS, because it's small enough to be a full featured-packed program.

Anyway, I do that remoting task myself, not with a web server, but with tightvnc (or realvnc) on the server and bvnc on the phone.
Thanks, I'll have a look to bVNC (it looks good).

That's a server-side script, possibly ajax? I don't know how to do that.
Don't worry. I'll leave the question open if someone else knows what server-side script (macro) use.

Revised to double the speed.  Updates at post#1 and 2. 
Good work! :)

@Mars: thanks for the explanation! (I've found very interesting how '[+special:alias]' work, especially on how we can combine macro code with an alias (an alias that works almost the same as a 'variable'). It surely gives endless possibilities and makes the code more easy to handle.

@Danny: I've tested the new Throwback7.tpl and this is getting better and better (that gradient background looks great). By the way, I don't see any more enhancements available without slowing down the server, so, it's done for me, at least for now.

Cheers,
Leo.-

Dear Jacques, I want the icon to appear with snow in the forecast when appropriate climate on the template Sunny, I'm using, but I could not find anything about it on your site. E 'can also have these small icons Snow on the forecast? Thank you for making a comeback and good continuation. John
