This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

For most folks, no news is good news; for the press, good news is no-no news, and people everywhere confuse what they read in newspapers with true news.

Unfortunately there are problems with the choppers ( just as with the trains )
The helicopters are very unreliable, problems with software, hydraulics and the electronic circuits keep most of them grounded.
According to research done by 2 newspapers.
At the moment the navy flies with old Belgium helicopters.

The Dutch and Belgian governments last week stopped the service of the new high-speed Fyra train linking Brussels and Amsterdam, which has been plagued with problems since its launch last month. According to NMBS CEO Mark Descheermaecker, if the train’s constructor does not solve the problems within three months, the rail authority will cancel its contract for three Fyra trains and seek repayment of €33 million already paid out in deposits.
 
Last week, 30 engineers from the Italian construction company AnsaldoBreda arrived in the Netherlands – the only Fyra trains in service to date are those owned by the Dutch rail authority NS – to carry out tests after Fyra was taken out of service.
 
Fyra came into service nearly six years behind schedule, replacing the standard Brussels-Amsterdam service. Rail users complained that the train was more expensive, rode less often, required a reservation and did not serve The Hague. The performance of the train itself, however, proved the biggest obstacle to its success: From the start, the service has been delayed or cancelled due to breakdowns.
 
Winter weather added to the problems, and when three trains were reported to have shed parts last week, the service was pulled entirely by safety inspectors. Dutch authorities have cancelled outstanding orders for seven trains. The Dutch rail minister Wilma Mansveld this week said she wanted her department and her Belgian equivalent to work together to come up with an alternative to Fyra before the end of the month. In the meantime the service is replaced by the former intercity service.

Reminds me of that joke from the war about Italian tanks.
Of their 27 gears only the reverse would work Smiley
