EOB

Electronic Order of Battle?
No, this is the End Of this Blog.
Nearly 10 years have past since I started it, 28.000 posts later it's time to retire.
I enjoyed every day of it, but new challenges lay ahead.
I'm off shortly to meet a lot of weirdo's like me, all Google Top Contributors, in San Francisco. And being a TC is time consuming, so I won't get bored.

I wish all of my readers and informants all the best in the future.
I'm sure you can manage without me.
If not, give it a try ... it isn't that hard ;)

I'm signing of,
Kobus

  6. I've been following NOSINT for years now from multiple countries. As a civilian, then as a service member, and back to civilian.

    Thanks for keeping this blog as long as you did. I'm genuinely sad to see it go, as it is one of my all time favorites.

    Best of luck to you.

  9. Sorry to hear you are signing off! I followed you for years, enjoyed and appreciated your your posts and knowledge. In fact, we used some for follow-up news and items on http://www.defense-update.com and elsewhere.

    Pity to see you close such a great resource, but having done that too since 2002 I fully understand the pressure. Wishing you a great continued career and lots of fun.

    Thank you for this great blog and Sorry to hear you shut down! I have been following it for years! NOSINT was a great repository of defense related news from across the Globe! Found another one but it relates to predominantly Indian defense news, rather good I should say but not good enough to match NOSINT. For the benefit of NOSINT fans here is the destination: www.indiandefensenews.in

    Cheers! Have a great life ahead!
