The What's New Archive
00:43 - General site updates
Been working on the site a lot these days. Most of the energy goes into the new "Prior patrols of U-boat commanders" (members area) which is more than halfway done. Also worked on the Events on this day (fixed odd bugs, simplified code) and many similar sections.
17:44 - 100 year Anniversary of U-boats
The 100 year Anniversary of U-boats is at Kiel, Germany this weekend (sorry for the delay in getting this up - was not aware of the event). Would have loved to learn of this sooner and perhaps go (been to Kiel a few times). More information here (in German).
22:47 - Prior patrols of U-boat commanders
The new Prior patrols of commanders database is coming along nicely (1100 entries so far, 100-200 added daily, probably around 4500 when complete). I am working on adding this info to the U-boat patrols data and each patrol will show each officer we have listed for that patrol (with photo if listed). Fascinating to see this come alive.
In addition to the 1 entries shown here above we made some 561 additions or changes in our databases during May 2007.
