Greatly encouraged by the Eu frigate Emden, these Somali pirates considered retreat the better part of valor! Story here.

    I see the latest re-revision and what I most notice is that all of the side-bar information and links other than Breaking News is missing. I suppose that I refreshed the site while you are in the middle of reconstructing it.

    Yeah, the comments aspect could become a real pain…

    Also, I just placed a ‘historical’ addition to Breaking News and it hasn’t yet appeared / posted. That might reflect a problem with the new site setup.

    Plus, maybe a ‘Naval History’ section versus the ‘Breaking News’ section might be an advisable addition to the site, since several of us here are true history addicts and are aware of just how much history repeats itself…

    I am having second thoughts already. It is also hard to find the “reply” button in the comments. I will work on it overnight.

    OK, I see that the Title works as a means to return to the basic website page. Still, I think that you should include a Home page button as was present in the now-surpassed version of New Wars. That’ll give all of us old fogies and any new visitors a convenient means of navigating back to the main, start page.

    One actual criticism… There is less perceivable color variation included in this scheme than the old one. It just seems less lively, leaning towards a more suppressed chromatic range of expression – if you follow what I mean. It’s just a bit too much true blue on a vast expanse of white if you sit back and scroll about the pages…

    I don’t know! Just click on the title I suppose. Oh, and I left you some “instructions” on the Breaking News Page.

    A new look, eh? Only, where’s the garl-darned HOME button?
