Wow, The Rev history is super nice! I'll have to take some time and read it over instead of brousing through it. I probably should read it soon before Kent sends in 2 or 3 lines each of his kites. That way I can read half now and half later. sounds like a big book report to me, what? 5 or 6 pages?

While working on the Master portion(tab), the idea has come up to use this also as a way of tracking all the master series REVs.
This meaning if you have a master and would like to list it and offer your photo for use only on this Revolution History site, I could add it in. If you can donate two maybe three short lines of text I could add this also, of course acknowledging the text came from you.
Please note if you do not not own the copyright to the photo you are offering, you would need to acquire permission from the person who has the copyright for the photo.

What are your thoughts on this?

Besides those who responded to this, are there others interested?
I even acquired a masterpiece last weekend, thank you Ben, so I will add this as soon as I take a photo of it.

For the Master's portion John Chilese has authorized use of many of his extraordinary photos which I have already integrated. The rest of the photos as of today are only from me.
I am still lacking a bit of text and photos. I suspect it will take some time to acquire all of this information and photos.

Now comes the question. Should I release what I have in the next days or wait until it is closer to complete?
If I release in the next days, I would also be updating on a regular basis.

The other item I proposed earlier was:

I am eagerly awaiting the release of what you have, so my vote is for an immediate release, and then updating as you see fit (or have time for).

Mate, now I want to get a Master just to get a kite in there!

I would really like it updated as I can't get enough of the history but I do appreciate how much work and effort you have gone, and are going to. It really is a top read as well as a benchmark for the chronology of the Revolution Kites.

I made an update to the Anniversary portion(tab).
I am starting to list all the owners of the Golden Historical Revolution. There were 25 made and they are all over the workd.

If you want to be listed, please send me a PM with your information.
As you can see, I am being a bit vague on precise details of anyone. If you want more or less information displayed, please indicate this.

Slightly off topic.

I have some Revolution animations that I recently added to my web site at:
http://johnnmitchell...tion/index.html

There is a very USA patriot animation there that I created with Adobe Edge instead of Flash, which the patriotic ones here might enjoy.
Adobe Edge uses HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript. There is zero Flash involved. This will probably replace Flash in the future.
The unfortunate side of this is that Edge can NOT be purchased. It can only be acquired by software subscription on a monthly or yearly basis. I hope this does not kill it.

My present work on the Master portion(tab) is now uploaded.

I may be out of internet contact with my main PC, where I have my Web Design work, as of late tomorrow and possibly for a few days. So here it is in its present state.

For those who looked at the Master tab improvement in the last 25 minutes, I must apologize. I created an error in that I failed to upload the latest css.
Now it is uploaded.
Now it looks correct.

Hi John,
I am the proud keeper of a early Bazzer Eyes which belonged to Big Bri, he said it was one of the first batch.
And of course I love it!
Will send you a pic soon as I can stop flying it!
You have a great book there John.
Take Care
Terry

OK, I am back up and running.

I am baby sitting a pair of new mansions direct on the beach and just got their initial network up and running.

I should have some more information shortly for the masters tab.

Okay guys, this is slightly off subject.
Here is your dream house.
This is where I am staying for the next several weeks.
I wouldn't mind staying forever, unfortunately these houses are far outside of my budget. I don't think I will earn in my whole lifetime what just one of them is selling for.
