19:34 - Yes! Prior patrols of commanders is done!
Just added 372 entries to the database and this completed the work. Right now it contains 4066 entries and this might change slightly as I double-check the work. Now I need to do some clean-up and database sanity checks just to make sure but overall this is done!
07:19 - Back from vacation in Rome, Italy
I just returned from Rome and am going through my e-mail box and since I still have one week left of my vacation I'll try to do something clever on the site in the next few days :)
01:40 - RSS feed being tuned
I am working on working the bugs out (technically and editorially) of the upcoming RSS feed feature here on uboat.net. This means you can subscribe to our updates and this way we'll be able to let you know more frequently what's been changed. Eventually there will be probably be several types of feeds you can subscribe to but we'll start with general "what's new" version.
01:26 - New Gallery: Fink II bunker in Hamburg rediscovered
I've added a new 13-photo gallery of the Fink II bunker in Hamburg as seen in July 2007. The bunker is amazingly well preserved after the efforts to destroy it post-war.
Also updated the Hamburg bunkers page.
