The swan analogy

I know it looks like nothing’s happening but that’s far from the truth. BfK may look serene and quiet as a swan but there’s actually a lot going on beneath the surface that you can’t see. Or at least, you can only see it emerge when work comes to fruition.

For example, I’ve done a minor upgrade to the Saxon Army Resources page to actually include the 40 Alexander Sauerweid plates rather than just linking to another site. This is part of my gradual insurance policy of keeping copies of all these resources just in case the other places go AWOL.

Also, you may have noticed the new contact form at the top of the right hand column. I’ve always encouraged comments on my postings but sometimes people want to contact me about different topics so that’s why I’ve added the form. Even before announcing it here I’ve had three people get in touch, so it promises to be popular. Just don’t expect an instant response from me – real life has a habit of delaying things!

And a final footnote – Henry Hyde over at Battlegames has just started up an e-mail newsletter. I’ve signed up, so let’s see what kind of fare gets delivered.

    Snap! While checking some plates at nap online (I think that is right) it suddenly occurred to me “what if the site wasn’t here one day” and I immediately went into a panic about all the resources I use online with regards to uniforms. It’s strange when you get a group of people coming to the same conclusion around the same time. 🙂
    Best go and see what your up to then
