It certainly has been an interesting week for our little forum which seems to have drawn the attention of some who really should try out jet modelling and get outside and enjoy the fresh air a little more.
The site is up and running and extra security and a new server has been put in place. The new software is already reporting and blocking attempts to disrupt our online community so that's a wonderful thing.
As Roger would say:
"Upward and onward!"
we owe a great debt of gratitude to Dave for restoring the site and protecting jetex.org from those who for some reason wish it harm.
I was ready to 'throw in the towel' but with Dave's support and encouragement I shall, to use Churchill's phrase, keep b*gger*ng on!
My blogs have been going through cycles of being there/not being there as this area of our software seems the most vulnerable. But I hope my pearls of wisdom and Jetex/Rapier information will soon be again a permanent feature of the site.
Some recent forum postings - for example about July's Old Warden meeting were also lost in the recent blitzkrieg so I would urge folk to repost.
Behind the scenes I have been developing a Jetex Viper 'part kit' - Tony Butterworth's model that performed so well at Old Warden, so if you would like one please contact me. Gunnar Rosen is also back recreating some Tailored models.
I have also secured adequate stocks of motors, please contact me for details
So the 'Jetex' future looks bright, so get building, flying and posting!
All for now
Roger (with stiff upper British lip again intact),
