From Aug 2006 - Nov 2013 WeDig provided a live forum for diggers & fans of Vindolanda. It has now been mothballed and will be maintained as a live archive.

Here you will find preserved 7 years of conversation, photos, & knowledge about a site many people love. Vindolanda gets under the skin. (Figuratively and literally as a volunteer excavator!) It's a place you remember, filled with people you remember!

Thanks for 7 great years!

Alas, with 10+ years of Phil Harding in those Spice Girl shorts, I think our collective reputation is sealed.

Spammer slam
Yes we can!!

(American political humor, for the win)

Spammer slam
Hey all. Just wanted to give you a heads-up that for the past few weeks there's been a pretty vigorous push by a spammer or spammers based in Russia trying to break into the site. I've been getting daily reports of new bots registering, and I've been researching their DNS #s individually and banning spam ones. If I miss any, please definitely do use the "Report" feature, as that immediately sends me an e-mail and I can obliterate the offending account.

Also, I'm trying to make sure not to ban potentially legitimate domains. If anybody happens to hear or know of someone who's having any trouble at all logging on here, please let me know so I can make sure to clear it up. Always a tricky balance making sure the filth stays out while not blocking legit folks!

2009 Season - lifts available
Oh my, it's like being back at the Twicey many a night, or right in the middle of a Bill Bryson book. I love the British propensity to debate a good auto route!

The best we get over here is all the in-laws talking about how far they made it on their various driving legs from Maine to Florida for the winter, and a nice recap once they all get back in April.

We Dig Vindolanda 2.0
I want to! So badly! I've stood Andy & the gang up twice in a row now. Finances & fatherhood put trips on the back burner. But I'm optimistic on '09 (assuming a slot is still open once I sort my end out!).

Quick progress report on the upcoming site revamp:

The first stage is underway. The current hosts of this site are going to be upgrading/transferring it to a newer sister site they've created called zetaboards. It looks to offer a -lot- more functionality, better resources for uploading & sharing photos, and a bunch of other neat toys (of varying usefulness for wedig).

There's no ETA yet for the transfer, but it should be a smooth affair -- there shouldn't be any loss to any forum threads, etc. As soon as I get a heads-up from The Powers That Be about the transfer date, I'll let you know. Then the fun can begin!
