october 21, 2014: More then 280.000
visitors in the mean time... not much activity lately here you think...,
well, you're right but it had reasons:
- moved to an iMac this spring (other Windows PC crashed, and i lost some material I was working on, so my "drive" was gone (lost all the notes which I used for updating my site)
- had to learn to work with the iMac, and while it is a very stable environment, I still am looking for some software to work with
- put Windows on my iMac with bootcamp, so I can use the best of both worlds ;)
- picked up an old hobby (modelling) and made a new section : Military Modelling in which I will put up some models I made (just for fun) and the Tamiya Catalogues I collected in my youth
- So basically I'm back to working to update my site and hopefully soon will show some new equipment items !!
