Vol. 4, No. 10, October 2008

This month I'm working on upgrading the Subchaser Archives site software. This might result in some strange page formatting here and there. If you see something that isn't right, please let me know.

Among the main objectives is better presentation of the large images. In the old page theme, wide images "broke out" of the page, even when the site was viewed on a large monitor. Since showing large scans of historical images strikes me as a valuable undertaking, I'm redesigning the site theme to allow it to stretch to whatever browser window width you are using, so that those site visitors who have a large monitor can see the full image nicely formatted in the page.

It might have the unintended corollary result of making the site look worse on a low-resolution monitor (so, again, let me know if something looks broken or wrong, so I can address it).

On Sunday, October 19, 2008 I will be speaking at USSVI (United States Submarine Veterans, Inc.) in Augusta, Maine. I think this will be a variation of a presentation on the life of crewmen on submarine chasers.
