Growin' a lot! Sat, 29 Jul 2017
heh, I tried to log into TWDB a bit ago and found it 503'd (bandwidth exceeded). Yup, this month we cracked through the monthly data transfer finally and I had to up the quota. That translates to 5.4 million hits this month or 1.3 million more than last year in July.

So yeah, If I go by traffic stats, there is a significantly increasing number of people interested in looking at typewriters this year. Roughly 20% more. :D

Hermes 3000 updated Thu, 31 Mar 2016
While poking at the H3000 galleries, I found a very late serial number that allowed me to approximate the serial list an additional 3 years to 1979. The sparseness of machine galleries between 1971 and 1979 seems unusual. Anybody got any boxy, plastic 3000's that you haven't uploaded yet?

Updated Voss serial number page Sat, 12 Mar 2016
Figured out I could extrapolate the 5 missing years from the Voss serial number list based on previous production and the high range of serial numbers shown in the Voss galleries, so did it! (:
