Well...it looks like we've got the laptop which Google will accept to talk to the router it wouldn't talk to, so the laptop Google wouldn't accept, but which could talk to the router will now be donated to the IT Maintainence course at Enham Alamien for students to wonder at!
And thus - from next week - hopefully, a return to a better level of service for followers of this blog. I have about 15 articles on Corgi and Husky in the pipeline along with the stuff that's been in the queue for a few months now (large scale French troops and Bullfighters), there's a quickie on New Metal to come and I've been getting help from Bernard Taylor with an overview of Hornby Dublo/Railways/Hobbies, Tri-ang and co.
I've also been contacted by an ex-employee of Bluebird who has pointed me in the direction of some new/background information on the company and with the original set of posts being among the most popular I've done; will start to prepare a follow-up on them.
Guards musicians are going to get a pretty thorough overview as well, and if I'm doing all the Hornby/Corgi civilian stuff I might try to cover the Matchbox ouvre in the near future. There is also some new acquisitions to look at, some more bits from the 'show and tell', a metal war-games article I took the photographs for before Christmas and a few other bits, so there should be something for everyone in the next few weeks.
In the meantime I have kept myself busy with the CAD course and have passed my level 2's in 2D and can now claim to be a junior level bona fide Cad-monkey!
Also while I note the counter has reset itself to zero - again! I know we're over the 2K mark, which is really quite amazing and represents about 200 regulars and 60-odd casual visitors per week, so thanks again for all you support and contributions.
Watch this space!
