Welcome to LaSierraOnline.Com
This is the 5th generation of LaSierraOnline since 2003 or somewhere thereabouts. I created this in response to there being no free place for alumni to network. This site was created, initially with forums, for high school students who attended La Sierra High School in Carmichael, CA. If you are a Longhorn alumni, you are so qualified.
The site was pretty ignored for a few years because in all honesty, I forgot about it. Occasionally, a few times a month, some classmate from a distant year would ask “where is everyone” and I would point them to Classmates and Facebook. Recently, two Longhorn classmates from the early sixties came my way and one noted because of his job, Facebook is not an option.
They had found the old version of this site which I finally logged into and found a mess of spam bots. I pulled the plug on that site while there were actually active spam robots creating accounts. Pesky robots can sniff out an open forum in minutes. In fact when I was putting this site up, 12 robots joined before I could shut down the pages and add security measures to filter out spam robots. We shall see how that works.
This site will always be free, it has been that way since the beginning of time or about 7 years. I will probably stuff an ad or two somewhere to support the hard costs and will never, ever share any log-in information. That reminds me, since most are in California, I will have a lengthy, legal document because the State of California as a stick up it’s virtual buttocks when it comes to the Internet. The Internet is turning into the next floor with a banana peel waiting for an attorney environment.
Finally, I use sites like this to also flush out other designs for client websites. What better way to support your need for a blog or social community than to come here, flush out the site, use it to reconnect and then maybe, pretty please, if you know someone that needs a webmaster that can do a wide range of web portal, ecommerce an social media marketing work, send them my way!
Thanks for stopping in. Now I am off to play with the design elements. I need more sidebars and less content space, so there will be some “changes” to surface design issues over the next week.
