Browsing news groups online
Despite the demise of alt.binaries.nl, we can still browse news groups online, without looking at the attachments, of course. I am using the binsearch.info facility for browsing that is similar to that found in the late lamented alt.binaries.nl.
I spent 11 years on active duty in the navy. Half was as an enlisted man and half as an officer. My Dad had interested me in the navy and ships, when I was young. I found that I was attracted to doing research, regardless of topic, although much of that research has been in the fields of naval and military history. My Dad was also an artist, and got me drawing and painting since I was three. Much of my work consists of portraits of military and naval historical figures, as well as ships and tanks.
