Work to resurrect this blog continues unabated so be sure to have a browse through the archives in a couple of weeks time as by then I will have added a few of the unfinished and/or unpublished posts from waaaay back.
I will also be re-uploading some of the older images. Why? Well back when Ratdat.com was first launched, a lot of folks were still viewing the web in an 800 x 600 resolution so a lot of the images used back then were quite small. These days, most people have a minimum of 1024 x 768, but often higher resolutions, so I think it would be good to update everything to suit modern monitors. Secondly, back in the early days of wordpress, images were all just chucked into one folder on the server, but later a change was made where they were sorted into folders by year and by month. This doesn’t really affect the reader but it makes life easier for me. If I re-upload images to an older post, the images are automatically placed into the correctly dated folder, thus making it easier for me to keep track of things. This is not a small undertaking as there are thousands of images on here but I will begin this process this week and hope to have it completed by the end of the year.

I think every post should always have some eye-candy so here’s a nice press photo of a 1968 Datsun 1000 wagon…
