    • 23:51 - Allied Commanders pages updated
      Over the last two days photos of 269 Allied Commanders have been added to their profiles. We now have 664 profile photos of those men. Most of those photos have been submitted by our readers, often relatives of the commanders, and we're most grateful for that.

    • 08:24 - New WWI wreck found?
      Yahoo News is reporting that a Type IIB U-boat from WWI has been found largely intact with 23 crew members still on board. We don't know if this is really a new wreck find or something we knew already about since there is no location given. But if a new discovery if might be one of UB 27, UB 29 or UB 32 which have not been located as far as we know. See our map of WWI U-boats discovered since their loss.

    • 20:14 - Server outage
      The server farm we're on had a problem yesterday (Saturday) and the machine has been acting strangely since. We're looking into the problem and the site might act oddly (or disappear from time to time) until we solve this. Edit: We seem to have solved this.
