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 items shown here above we made some 560 additions or changes in our databases during May 2007.
