1 January 2014 / Launch of the new website BFV Cosmos
Things change and an astrophilatelic club with great space ambitions has to be at the top of the IT and website development. Since I changed from good old Windows to a fantastic MacBookPro, I had to leave my old MS Expression Web program and go to an all new Mac program. I found Freeway Pro and it took me about 6 months to learn how this program works (completely different from the Windows tasks).
After that, the whole BFV Cosmos website had to be rebuilt in the new format and all links and pages had to be updated.
