Site Update Coming...today, downtime will follow.
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Look for some downtime...probably a couple of hours, so don't panic. We'll have some enhancements, including two new "AFV theme" pages to choose from and additional new security features (that will largely transparent to members) like some controls over how many 'bots can peruse the site at one time, stuff like that. This will make for less slowdowns for you "human" users.

See this announcement:

Don't let the new look scare you, we've got two new AFV themes coming, and they look great. Just a few bugs to be ironed out and thuh' admins is all tuckered out gettin' us back online. Do not attempt to adjust your set...just yet. Wink

Not to worry...you'll soon have two new choices of AFV themes (I've seen 'em) and they look'a very nice'a! Wink

(One's pretty much like the old AFV theme, with a twist, and the other one is, uhh...different. But still earthy and not bright. Bushy is just, well....bushed)

Actually it would probably be more appropriate to thank Dragonfly who wrote the software...

THANK YOU! AND LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL!

To set the TWO AFV themes (you have a choice now*) Go to "Home Page", look at right side and scroll down to the "theme box" and select the "theme" setting of choice (this will, of course, be AFV or AFV2, assuming you're "normal") and thereafter, if you're "logged on" (and when you do this) you will default to this setting. AFV2 is even darker than the standard AFV theme.

And Thanks to the hosts at Com-Central who saved us from the 'Bots of the past by offering us this space....for Bushy's favorite price, I might add...(though donations are always cheerfully accepted...and if you don't do PayPal, you can send to me, it will all get to the right place...I don't do PayPal and I sent him a check...that can be arranged too, ain't kiddin', neither.)





*(We do hope Dontos approves Mr. Green )

Writing good software is an important part but having folks who provide the ongoing care, keep the system alive, put up with all us moochers and actually seem to enjoy it is the most important part of the equation
From George who started the list and supported it in it's infancy to Doug who helped us find a new home to Bushy, Shadow, and probably others who we never hear about I appreciate them all
