Ordnance Survey desktop wallpapers?

Discussion in 'UK Photography' started by Ted van de Weteringe, Oct 16, 2008.

  1. [Couldn't find a completely appropriate group so opted for the ones
    using OS maps (u.r.cycling, u.r.walking) and shooting their wallpapers
    (u.r.photo.misc). Follow-up to the latter!]

    Upon visiting http://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/wallpaper I was dismayed
    to find out that its archive of previous wallpapers has gone. Because I
    had not been there for a while, there are now a few months missing from
    my collection. Could any of you provide me with June to September 2008?
    Preferably the 1280x1024 size. If anyone is interested, I will post the
    rest of my collection (from Dec '99) to alt.binaries.maps.

    Thanks!

  2. Would have send them - but your email is not valid.

    Presumably it is if you remove ".invalid" from the end and replace
    "myfullname" with his full name ...

  4. It is! Well, it isn't but use my name ('tedvandeweteringe') where it
    says 'myfullname' and drop the '.invalid' part... Like so:
    <>. If you could try again, I'd be very
    grateful. Sorry for the confusion.

  5. I was surprised that several links from this site gave me the message:

    "Unfortunately your browser is not currently supported by Ordnance
    Survey Explore.

    We don't want this to spoil your experience of our website; the
    browsers currently supported are: Firefox 1.5.x (OS X), Firefox 2.0.x
    (all platforms) and Internet Explorer 6 and 7."

    I use Firefox 3.0.

  6. Stupid browser checks. I use Safari but have not encountered that
    message (also have not really been browsing around there, too annoyed at
    them for retracting the archive...).
