Don't disagree about windows, but why has it happened now, namely can't see some the images if it was windows would not all of the images be treated alike, namely can't see them at all.
 
Logic says, shouldn't apply logic, that something else is amiss.
 
PS, My XP Pro is updated and showed all imges during this build which I followed daily now......................... >>:-( >>:-(

I AM SHOUTING WITH HAPPINESS!!!!!! O0 O0 O0 O0 O0 O0 O0

One of my lifeboats in this build, the Mary Stanford is based on the most famous ( IMHO) lifeboat ever to serve with the RNLI......she is the ONLY  lifeboat ever to have been awarded a gold medal for her rescue of the Daunt Rock Lightship crew in 1936, and has been languishing and rotting away in Dublin Grand canal basin for years.
A trust was set up in October to raise money and save er from being scrapped.

THEY HAVE DONE IT...........THEY HAVE RAISED THE MONEY TO INITIALLY SAVE HER.
The power of the people over beurocracy has won, and she will shortly be on her way to her spiritual home...BALLYCOTTON.

WELL  DONE.....BRILLIANT. :-)) :-)) :-)) :-))

I hope to go over to see her whilst on a special mission to Ballycotton in the spring.

Thank gawd for that. She's in a dreadful state now, I hope they can still save her, it's going to take a fair amount of money.

Hello furball,


I've just remembered that neil received these photos from a friend in Ballycotton, who now owns the model of Mary Stanford and thought those who followed his build some years ago might be interested in the pictures of the real vessel, well on the way to full restoration in Ballycotton.


I thought the second photograph with the vessel lit up by the Milky Way is particularly beautiful. With thanks to Ronan McLaughlin for the reproduction of the second photograph.
