Aah well, 5 laptops, running MacOS (10.13 or 10.14) and 3 pc's with win7 pro or ultimate and the only device that shows the page correctly is an iPad.

Good to know it is only the laptops and PC's misbehaving and not the BBP website.

Looking forward to the next update ;)

If I could replicate the problem I would fix it but as everything is working I don't know what to fix here. Perhaps a hard refresh may work (ctrl +f5 on windows, cmd + F5 on mac) may help

It is what it is and for now I will live with it whilst I determine a solution.

It may be in how the feed is called to the main webpage (adobe flash/shockwave? Java/javascript?).

I have all flash, shockwave and java/javascript blocked from loading on all my laptops and pc's as it can be insecure and it may be that causing the issue, though Firefox on iOS on my iPhone behaves the same without blocking flash/java.

Odd, but I'll live with it.

I only mentioned in passing originally and did not want to start a discussion on it, however, always good to know what has been said so far. ;)

It's no bother- we like to hear of any gremlins in case we can fix something, too. ;)

So will pic of the day be returning to this website? Miss not seeing day to day stuff at work. Due to security, social media is not accessible.

The pic of the day slot on the main site home page is occupied by whatever is our current tweet, enabling us to sometimes make multiple updates now from a single workshop session, etc. Much better! If work doesn't let you see, it's all still there on twitter for when you get home!

Interesting Pic of the day (28 Feb 2019) showing original K7 infinity roundel.

Can you be sure it was 'off white' in 1966 and not white that has 'aged' during the last half century?
My experience with white is the oil/varnish in the paint yellows with age.
The original sign writer would probably have used a signwriter's white (not Brilliant White) such as made by Keeps or similar.

We polished a small area and it remained off white so either it always was off white or some change has taken place in the paint to change its colour throughout. It that would be a known phenomenon with vintage cars and such so I'm pretty sure it was always off white.

you could, if so inclined, run it by historic paint consultant Patrick Baty in London. On previous historic paint projects I've found his knowledge and microscopic analysis to be very helpful.
