Hi Ed -

Increasingly, it appears TOCH will not be coming back. On the recommendation of one of the most favored original members who is a close personal friend of one of the managers at TOCH, I sent said manager a very nice e-mail politely asking for whatever amplification he could provide. It has been nearly a week and no reply. And I've been an active member there since 2000 with a total of 7,000+ posts under two different screen names. So things do not look promising. :( :cry:

Nick Beale has posted on WW2Talk Friday that there has been serious corruption of the data base and they are trying to fix it but it is very difficult.

I'm guessing that nobody is getting email responses while this is going on.

All the best

The enemy had superiority in numbers, his tanks were more heavily armoured, they had larger calibre guns with nearly twice the effective range of ours, and their telescopes were superior. 5 RTR 19/11/41

Immediate action should be taken to continue the posting of photos and documents to other relevant sites. And at least one effort is being considered to create something similar to TOCH but there are no guarantees. I must repeat that recent events like this, including the temporary loss of Facebook for six hours, points out a problem that must be addressed: alternative means to contact the people involved when a site goes down. The internet is convenient but when a site goes down there is no immediate way to contact anyone. That problem needs to be solved now.

Best regards,
