Welcome to allatsea
This iteration of allatsea.co.za is really a glimpse at the world that I live in and have lived in. It encompasses many things, although the main focus used to be transportation and memorials. A lot of it is also the remnants of my original website, while the newer iteration called Musings at allatsea is a chronological blog about my current travels and adventures, however you can access both blogs through the top menu in both blogs.
Use the banner above to access Musings, or if you feel up to it you may also use this link to take you there.
Of interest to those of a “military bent” is the following: (opens in a new tab).
In the months to come a number of sections of the blog will be removed as I feel they no longer have any relevance and for personal reasons. It is not something that is done quickly though as I need to hunt down the respective pages and their images to remove them.
My newest contributor is a like-minded soul with a curiosity about many things that she enjoys researching, primarily historical. Being that she also enjoys writing, it is her intention to potter away in her little corner of my vast empire when she has the time. I know we will see a lot of new interesting additions to this blog as time passes, although she also has her own little spot on the net to visit , Curiosities, which is now the repository of a lot more of her work.
And now the bad news: I still have to relook my commitment to this blog as it is hosted in South Africa, and a number of changes are going to happen which may lead me to shut it down and move it offshore. The first is the possible legislation in South Africa pertaining to digital media like this, and the other is the deprecating non-secure HTTP by Firefox. I am not really interested in having to fork up for a ssl certificate so may as well close it down altogether unless I can overcome the cost issue. The fact remains that moving to https, while a good idea for some is a bad idea for people like me who do not have the budget to pay for it. So when/if this becomes the norm then this blog will cease.
Navigation here is a bit different; use the drop down menu at the top of the page, or the menu on the right hand sidebar, or use the images below to access a subsection of the pages. Personally I prefer the top nav bar, but the sidebar is much easier to use with mobile devices. As usual, some pages and images open in a new window, and some images and pages don’t, personally I blame it on old age.
