  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

  3. May I please request people check and update their email address if it is out if date. I ask as I’m getting countless bounce errors as the server fails to send notifications through etc. I’ll eventually figure out how to send these to a black hole somewhere, but it makes sense to address it at source as quite a few folk are obviously not getting the thread and conversations notifications they have set in their preferences.

  4. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    At the Water Rats last Sunday to see a friend supporting this lot, considerably younger than most of the bands I've shot at gigs (not sure you could say the same about the audience)

    Nice one David!

    In 84 the site had become a bit neglected, and the authorities had had a rough 'tidy up' for the 40th commemorations. The result was to make it all look slightly as if the battle had just taken place! It's all rather tidier now, and I believe H&E has fenced off the smashed bunker.

    I think that the Atlantic Wall bunkers are an extraordinary if accidental work of art. For years I intended to do a project on them, but sadly the graffiti vandals have got at many of them, and some of the most iconic were recently demolished at Wimereux, H&E again.

    Its a shame, as concrete is quite beautiful, in a brutal kind of way. Despite being really interested in the history of WW2, I have visited very little of the D-Day beaches/beachhead , something that needs to be rectified!!!

    I used to go to Normandy quite often, but not for years now. My first visit was when I took these photos, the 1984 commemorations. I went over in a Range Rover, and slept in the back! One night I camped just behind this battery. Spooky.

    In 1984 there were many vets there, the youngest of them the same age as I am now. I wish I had photographed them.

    I remember seeing a young fellow walking across Omaha beach in full US Infantry combat gear, thought it was rather inappropriate. Now it is all reenactors in Jeeps, very few vets left.

    It's well worth doing. You'd have to have a heart of stone not to be moved by the American cemetery above Omaha beach.
