Someone asked me if I could have a section for valves which I have disposed of. I am not yet sure what the best way to do this would be because once a valve goes it’s database entry goes which wipes it from the website. This website has always been about my physical collection, not just a set of photos. (well, ok, it is really just a set of photos but you know what I mean)
Saving images of ex-valves is straightforward but it would just be a pile of pictures, no index or text. I have experimented with converting web pages to PDFs so I only need to store the one file. Other than that I’m not sure what method will fit with the overall site yet.
On the plus side, once I trim the current collection to just the CVs and military types as planned there should then be no further deletions.
