Re: Site has had server failure problem

Until it is fixed don't use any of the buttons in the html bar. If you do it will give you a message saying you have a message content problem and your message will not post.

The only major US war ship lost in WWI

It was on the way to New York at the time and not too far from getting there it would seem. The mystery is now... a century later... solved as to how it went down.

Duncan tried to write this but was having some problem.

Re: So where do you get your World News?

After telling America that Vietnam was a dumb war and a loser that couldn't be won....after a while... America had to agree with him. J...

Welcome to the site. Wish the site wasn't having some problems at the moment because of a server crash and a need to update the board. Hopefully it will be corrected in the near future. Thanks for joining the group, particularly under the circumstances of the site present condition.
