Sundial blog post updates

Following the temporary suspension of the Members Area while we confirmed our hosting company’s GDPR compliance, I’m pleased to say that they have updated their policies and access to the Member’s Area has now been reinstated.

Thanks to B. Tomas Johansson for providing a paper on the use of vectors and projections as a efficient way of describing 3D objects and hence of general use for sundials. The full paper can be read here.

Visitors are reminded that we are always on the look-out for sundial-related articles that can be publicised in this way. The current list is available here. and material for possible contributions would be welcomed by

We are again meeting at Sutton Hall, Stockcross, Newbury RG20 8LN (directions below).

Despite assurances prior to 25th May that our hosting company would be fully GDPR compliant, we have not yet received the necessary confirmation from them. Accordingly, in order to ensure the Society’s continued compliance, we have taken the decision to temporarily suspend access to the members area We hope to restore access as soon as possible, in the meantime the remainder of the site is fully available as usual.

Following discussion at the Oxford Conference, the BSS Discussion Forum has been set up to allow members to discuss all aspects of the Society. The link can also be found under the Members Area menu item.

Please note that as this is intended for discussion about the Society, access is limited to members only and you will have to log in to use it. Let the conversation begin!
