No sign of the usual suspects here for a while...must be the run up to you know what!
Everyone still here
I'm here too-and what's this doing in the Burma and India forum :wink:
I must of felt your concern zahonado, take a look at my new post about Deolali.
Don't you have to be in Casablanca in December 1941 to be one of "... the usual suspects"?
Lurking with intent... been busy finishing 230's winter newsletter and a memoir for someone...
Good to know you are all there even if you have been keeping your heads well down!
Krikey! Things are terrific here.
This is an excellent forum with a terrific, large number of experts aboard.
I am a member of five forum based websites and all are visually struggling for new content and membership. This forum seems to buck that trend or at least maintains a strong heart-beat which should allay any fears of close-down. As you say, this type of website is a massive open resource for people to dip in and out of as they research their past or satisfy their need for knowledge on the subject of WW2 and much more.
Good morning all,Happy all my mentors are still around and nice to see a thread with all the usual names on elsie
I've been a member since 16 Dec 2005 according to my profile page.
That's 8 years tomorrow, longer than the war lasted.
Not surprisinly my interest has waned somewhat but I like to stick around for the general chat & help run the place., though I do less of that now too.
I've been a member for over 5 years now. Lately, I just tend to pop in for a quick look whilst eating breakfast and then again in the evening when I get home from work. My post rate has dropped quite a lot this year as I had been working away from home for 6 months. I'm now busy acquiring the war diaries for all the Lincoln Battalions from WW2 and will probably post a lot of what I am looking at next year.
We have all sorts on here and a dam fine diverse mix.
It is good to see a lot of newer members getting their teeth stuck in and adding a lot of information/comments.
And don't forget if you do post something and don't get a reply ,it has been looked at ,noted and will be added to as and when or it could be taken just as info for forum members.
I do like to say "thank you for posting " on new posts/existing posts when I read them.
"eat as much as you like"
Every little helps
onwards and upwards
Absolute ignorance of course but how can looking and contributing to a site such as this or ww2.com result in a malware attack? Presumably before anyone notices such an attack, this site may well have been compromised and this might be happening now as I type this post.
WW2F got hacked 2 years ago. All clean now for a long while.
Any use of the web exposes you to potential threats.
Email downloads, drive-by injections from websites you visit, etc. etc. etc.
You either stop using the web altogether, or you keep your AV & Anti-malware up-to-date & switched on, don't download from untrusted sources, & carry on.
Fred doesn't seem to appreciate that constant references to a historical attack on a site do more harm than good, spreading alarm and bruising that most delicate of properties: trust.
If we have confirmed trouble at any time, and it's a possibility for any site (poor old Hyperwar seems to currently be under attack by these arseholes), we will say so.
A History of Malware
and as I said to you there Fred, you really need to give this a rest and just get on with it. Your chat about malware elsewhere - which has been dealt with - can have the opposite effect to what I presume you intend.
No thread on a forum is actually "obscure", especially if it's bumped.
No one thought things were rough here, they patently aren't, the OP simply wondered what some of the regular folks on this Burma & India sub-forum were up to lately.
I assumed so too.
.....and lots will be shopping this time of year!
Thanks von Poop for the malware info
Too busy!! Someone I know has been exploring the northern bump of Nungshigum this weekend!!
