Thanks to the unstinting patience and considerable help from both Matt Unger at MPUWEB.com and Mike Plumstead at MPXAM.com I am pleased to say that all aspects of the site are now fully HTML5.0 compliant and even the jigsaws on our Puzzles page are now up and running. If you have tried these in the past, try them now they are proper jigsaw pieces rather than block! If you have not tried them, then you should still definitely have a go!


1 May 2018

Julie Jones has updated her piccture of Y 3400 to Ys on Parade.

I am pleased to say that now other than updating the jigsaw puzzles in the Puzzels page, I have completed the re-write of the site and so soon will be able to concentrate on bringing you more frequent updates! Watch this space as they say and I hope that you may (or may not) have noticed any or all of the changes that have been made to improve site performance and cross-platform compatibility. I sincerely hope not to have to do this again in a while. The last page that I have updated is the Ys on film and other media. This page (featuring over 90 videos and many stills from films too featuring the MG Y) to speed loading times has been split into four seperate pages with a new popup video player. All the videos have been converted too from .flv files to .mp4 too.
