Great stuff as per usual Isaac despite your recent assimilation with the Borg.
Once again thanks to you and our 'Deutscher Freund" for the work on the most recent MoD files.
But what is going on at the National Archives?
I did find their policy with this last batch of files a little baffling if I may say so. The MoD seemed only too willing to get everything out there
in previous years. Much of which is available digitally on the UK National Archives
a fee of course). Although we should remember initially everything was free of charge for a month after release.
I've also noticed that some files are supposedly available to view online but ....
"This record is available to view with our image viewer"
For example : Try this link
to actually view the document without paying for
the pdf version. It says low resolution. But it seems to be no resolution to make it readable. Pointless IMHO or is it my graphics card?
Now they are basically saying that the newly released files can be made available digitally provided the resolution is unacceptable for commercial use
and password protected?
Is that because the current British Government's obsession with cutting public expenditure is to blame? Rather than any attempt to conceal official
records? The National Archive's staff seemed to have created a satisfactory workaround to avoid infringing Crown Copyright. But who knows? They also
deliberated for a long time over the release of these files and I believe 2 or 3 are still unavailable.
So that said.
Isaac have you ever considered another plan to archive the UFO information that is currently available on the web (and wayback machine)?.
Wayback machine has helped me out many times. But I've also noticed a lot of news items, websites and blogs suddenly disappear and are never
retrievable even via Wayback machine.
Just a thought....
