I don't really know why I didn't include this much sooner as it is quite a handy function and has been asked for a number of times in the last 12 months or so. The archives page which contains links to all previous front page articles is now online and can be accessed from the third link from the left under the site's masthead, appropriately named "Archive".

The links on this page will take you back as far as 2003, the year that Vintage Radio took off.

In other news, I am going to make a few changes to the site's registration process for new members. This will involve some added filtering to block spam robots and to enforce the site's policy on usernames and passwords. Don't panic if you are wanting to register and a red light flashes - we are here to help. With this in mind, if you make a mistake you will be told what it is and the registration process will simply give you another chance - easy.

For existing members, I am going to improve the login process. Soon, there will no longer be a seperate page for entering your username and password. This will soon be done from the Members' Sidebar and the login process will go from lasting a second or three to instantaneous. Smile

In a week or so I am going to get the Tutorials page going. it will simply contain links to all of the tutorials and other miscellaneous articles here on Vintage Radio. With this, I am also introducing for the first time, a new article on the position that replica radios play in the world of collecting. I am sure that many people will find this interesting reading.

On a more sombre note, I regret to announce that my poor mail server is copping a lot of spam from the Yahoo and Gmail domains. Unfortunately I may have to end up blocking these domains from my mail server to prevent these attacks. There is simply no other way of stopping the problem.

Blocking e-mail domains will have no affect on existing members or their ability to use this website as they always have though if I go ahead with a block on Yahoo and Gmail then new members would be asked to register with an e-mail address not involving either of these service providers. This is the downside to spam and flooding - more negative impacts end up being greater than the positive.

In finishing, may I thank all those who continue to come back to Vintage Radio, as well as the all-important new visitors. You are the reason this site is here and I will never lose sight of that fact. Grin
