    Sorry to cause a bit of commotion on this one; I did try to PM you Jagan but your box was full.

    In essence I just came across the link whilst doing some research for my 35 Squadron project; it related to KU reports for PB343 (http://forum.12oclockhigh.net/archiv...p?t-22406.html)

    I don't know if the link worked before but just thought I would flag it in case it was a glitch in the handover.

    Regards

    Pete
    Main areas of research:

    - CA Butler and the loss of Lancaster ME334 (http://rafww2butler.wordpress.com/ )
    - Aircrew Training (Basic / Trade / Operational / Continuation / Conversion)
    - The History of No. 35 Squadron (1916 - 1982) (https://35squadron.wordpress.com/)

    [Always looking for copies of original documents / photographs etc relating to these subjects]

    Probably bot the right place fr this but I am limited on the PC as of late.

    This has always been a bone of contention with me. Ross banned KevinW4, now known on WW2Talk as KevinBattle for c&p LB info as BCL.

    I would like to propose that we keep this ban as well as several others Ross banned (Peter Clare)

    Regards,

    Dave

    As I know Peter Clare for one, I strongly disagree with the language ueed above, ne're do well etc.

    These people share our love of the subject and disagreed with Ross's rules. They do not deserve this type of terminology used about them.

    They copy and pasted text to answer peoples questions, they didn't injure anyone.

    Use some common sense as simple posts can be extremely hurtful. Peter for one lost his father in a CC loss so he simply wishes for people to have the answers he didnt have for so many years.

    And this thread was not the place for this too be brought up, there is a new forum section

    Well that did not take long for the spammers to surface.

    They can post quicker that we can report with the minute anti flood limit on reporting posts.

    Mods need access to all active forums if they are to remove spam quickly.

    Regards

    I moved the banned users posts to this thread.

    If a user earned a permanent ban, there would have been a good reason for that. i do not wish to undo any of it. Nothing personal here.

    Ross, back to the DC Forum threads again!

    I'm trying to index Henks posts in the nice html format, looking at this one

    http://www.rafcommands.com/dcforum/D...ID6/18726.html

    It has no replies

    But there is this thread in the data folder
    http://www.rafcommands.com/dcforum/D...Data/18788.txt

    It does have replies but I see the title was a "recovered thread" - Deals with the same date and unaccounted names.

    The format you discussed above

    http://www.rafcommands.com/dcforum/D...ID6/18788.html

    doesn't appear to work in this case (at least it does not right now on my computer at 20:35pm) , I've tried variations of the ID7 I think. Are some just not readable in the html, perhaps this one because it was recovered?

    I have a vague idea that the size of archive (ID6) was getting too big and crashing due to the excessive search time causing time outs while new posts were being made.

    I started a new archive (ID7) to deal with the immediate problem and recovered the corrupted posts to ID6.

    Looks like I did not rebuild the complete html threads at the time for about a dozen of the final threads in ID6.

    Regards
    Ross

    Ok, not to worry, just checking I wasn't going mental.
    I suppose, if the 18788.txt was renamed 18726.txt and replace the old file of that name, it might read in the html format.
