It's so much better than analysis Bob - nobody here tells us we have to get better. %%

... Being the 30th anniversary of the Falklands conflict I zeroed in on that, and was surprised at many of the subsequent comments by "mayhemmers" were in a way very apposite to the situation we, as a country, now find ourselves in. Lack of resources. Money, in other words. But our "politicians" still seem to find the defence of the country subservient to squandering £Billions on welfare. I despair.....again. BY.

There is a lot of money going in. We are the third biggest power in the world by military expenditure. Only the US and China are above us.

On the other hand, France and Russia, just below us, seem to be getting better value for their cash.

Something gives me the feeling that there is quite a gap between the money we put in, and the military value that we get out...

From he reports I have seen, Russia doesn't seem to be doing too well at all. A lot of their gear doesn't appear to work or goes wrong and their arms exports on the naval side have a very poor reputation.

I must admit that I haven't been tracking military export quality much - my suggestion was really based on the idea that they actually HAD a navy, whereas ours seems to be vanishing...

Dodgy......and that was my point in a nutshell.
Cash allocation within the UK from Central Gov't always seems to be skewed to "the visible" and not towards the really more important "invisible" bits. Bloody ignorant politicos again. BY.

Martin

I can only guess how much work/ time you must spend making this by far the best UK model boat forum. As everybody else has said you deserve an enormous thank you not just from those who post but also from those who lurk in the background.

A QUESTION

Has anybody else noticed that getting access to the forum has now become unreliable? I would say that about a third of the time when I try to open the forum in my browser nothing happens & if I try again immediately still nothing. If I leave it 5 minutes then it is likely that it will open instantly. The same ratio & results apply when I click on links - say to open a thread - within the forum.  All other sites in my favorites work fine - including when this link has failed to connect.

                    We are a trifle busy, so hang in there.

Our plight has been noted all over the world and as a consequence we are experiencing a large amount of registrations.  Everyone is welcome so, to quote another TV program.

                                 Come on down   :-))

Just a quickie as I am sure you guys are busy getting this fantastic forum back on track again - but if we had to re-register will our posts/mails/pics etc be re-aligned ??

All the best

I wonder if we need a FAQ?

It could cover the timeline of what happened, the current state of the forum, what is expected to be done over the next few weeks/months and what forum members can best do to maintain the smooth running of the board without disturbing Martin more than necessary...

After the meltdown, I had to re-register, and have now noticed that my post count is only 1,previously before the meltdown it was over 100, does this mean that i,ll have to have 25 posts before i can sell an item, {:-{
