Ah! I see what you've done! Very good! Very cleaver! and very sensible (if you had the time to do it).

I think they probably used the software rather than a cleaver to c & p. :rotf:

Copy & paste is too much like work plus the time stamp would be wrong , a moderator tool is used , first time use of it can be interesting though .

Being a mod elsewhere (cause for much mirth - or just blind panic?) I did know that, but c&p worked better with the cleaver. :D

As far as I can recall there's always been a merge tool available for mods at the genealogy forum and I've been modding there for over 8 years :o .

Picked this up at the local library, thought it would make a nice book at bedtime.
Found it a funny coincidence that having just read the chapter when Allen and his compatriot blew up Vladivostok the next morning opened the metro and there's a picture of a Russian arms dump blowing up in Siberia.

Watching the arms dump going up on iTunes the explosions looked more contrived as the blasts seem to follow a line on the horizon.
