P.O.D.

Nothing like going to your favorite submarine website and finding, well, nothing! 

"I looked, and there it was, gone!"

I feel your pain, and even more so.

If you happened to visit the Cold War Boats site since yesterday afternoon, you found that the site wouldn't even load, which is a big deal for you, and a major headache for me. I was busy adding more smoke boat menus to the site when the menus started going wonky and nothing I could do made it better. I restricted access to the site, and worked unsuccessfully to get it turned around. Finally, the whole menu system collapsed into gibberish, roughly 3500 individual menu items, which may not sound like a lot to you, but it kept me busy for much of the last 24 hours!

The good news is that the site is back on-line, and ready for your access and perusal. Persistance paid off, and the reward is access to 396 boats, thousands of photos, sea stories, and boat records. 

Another lesson learned on the boat pays off.

"Never give up, never surrender!" Even if you're just sorting out software!
