    Some good policy from the Finnish Defence Forces. The digitising of old military photographs was done before by the German officials. Now we Finns have almost all of the WWII film clips and photographs digitised!

    They must not have guessed that this interests someone. They can take only 100 people downloading pictures at the same time.

    According to Iltalehti they left out hundred or two of the most graphic pictures.

    I'll have to check back in a couple days probably, too many users at once. Great find, can't wait to check it out.
