Updated the profile on U-166
Fixed a small layout bug on the Movies section.
01:24 - The U-boats in Movies & Film section is finally open!
72 Movies or films online already with many more on the way. Check this out and you'll see this is well worth it!
This addition brought the size of uboat.net to over 2440 pages!
17:27 - Added information to the U-483 profile.
17:27 - Been catching up on the e-mail, some 25 replies today.
Added the story of U-977's 108-day long patrol to Argentina during the summer of 1945.
Updated the Interesting Figures page.
17:27 - Got my NT system running again after replacing its system disk system with a super fast 9GB SCSI-2 system. Feels nice to have 13GB in the system (uboat.net alone takes about 1GB for all its development files) I think :) Took some 15 hours of work to configure the system properly though during which the e-mail poured in :)
01:24 - Added the 26 U-boat Commanders with last names starting with Z to the List of all Commanders. 328 men listed.
Updated the profile on U-679

Created a simple page on U-boat Related Myths & Stories.
Updated the page on Kapitän zur See Karl Neitzel.
01:24 - Opened the much anticipated Emblem pages. They contain over 30 high quality vector images already and this will increase rapidly over the course of the year. Includes Emblem of the Week that explains the emblem in question.
Created a simple page called Special Items that houses special subsections that do not fit elsewhere. Emblems is hosted there for one.
Linked the Flotilla pages to the new improved emblems where available.
17:27 - Added a very interesting new 6-page feature called
Men lost from U-boats that we believe is unique to uboat.net. It's pretty close to a complete listing but we'll continue to work on it after a while.
Been working very hard on making vector emblems for the new Emblem page, have finished 70 of the perhaps 400 emblems used in the war. Each one takes about an hour to make properly. The Emblem page will open this week and will be nice I think.
01:24 - Added an What's New archive page for December 1998.
Created a page on What happened on uboat.net in 1998. This is an interesting look-back, amazingly much done really :)
