Jan, you had e-mailed me the names of the two aerodromes in Warsine...can you make sure that they are posted here tothe wiki? I've misplaced the e-mail, somehow.BoArthur

In fact, there's only one aerodrome in Warsina. From Venedair S.A.: "Its primary hub is Jagiełło Aerodrome in Warsina, with Paweł Żaklin International Aerodrome in Kordyn as an important secondary hub." Would you need a second aerodrome in Warsine? It can be taken care off... --IJzeren Jan 23:50, 27 November 2005 (PST)
Regarding Aerodromes, for Warsina's size, and given the needed size of aerodromes *there* compared to airports *here*, I think that two wouldn't be a bad idea. Did you adjust the information in the main article, Jan? BoArthur 09:23, 8 February 2006 (PST)
Yeah, but on the other hand, given the size of aerodromes *there*, wouldn't one aerodrome swallow up more than enough space? ;) I haven't updated anything yet. Which main article did you have in mind?
Anyway, I'm not quite sure. Why would aerodromes necessarily have to be a lot bigger than *here*'s airports? Zeppelins may be bigger than airplanes, but they don't need to taxi for miles before they can finally take off. Besides, I'd suspect the number of flights is smaller, especially when it comes to domestic flights, as a higher percentage of transport is being taken care of by trains. Also, I think there are quite a number of privately-owned mini-aerodromes, which wouldn't have space for more than one or two zeppelins at a time. —IJzeren Jan Uszkiełtu? 04:03, 9 February 2006 (PST)
I wasn't thinking of taxiways, but rather hangars for the zeppelins, huge monolithic things, they would take up a lot of space. One can't really park a zeppelin on the runway; they general have to be held in a hangar. Or am I really really wrong?BoArthur 10:44, 9 February 2006 (PST)
No, I think you're right about the hangar. A little while back I read a very nice description of such a hangar in a certain novel... Anyway, I don't fully know how zeppelins work, but it seems to me that the space taken by the hangars would be made up for by the absence of taxiways. Perhaps the zeppelin can even leave through the roof?
Anyway, about zeppelins. First of all, many months ago Marc mentioned the comic book series "Les Cités Obscures" (Cities of the Fantastic) as something that is in a way pretty close to IB. Since then, I've bought all books, and I'm deeply impressed by it. It indeed has certain similarities to IB, including one book about a zeppelin trip. I really recommend you to follow the links on the corresponding Wiki page. Another must-see is the movie "Sky Captain". I you haven't seen it yet, by all means go and buy it!

Warsina photos

In my opinion those two photos of present day Warsian present *here* Warsaw totally rebuilt after WWII to socrealistic style (those sky drapers are OK but those blocks of flats shouldn’t be there). I saw a lot of prewar photos of Warsaw, shouldn’t Warsine looks more like today Paris or Vienna? I know I should mention it earlier when Warsina article was create but I hadn’t got an account then.

Are you also referring to the Nowy Świat? I don't think it's that bad after all. Warsina may have been hit by the war to a lesser degree than *here*, but that doesn't mean that it remained completely intact. Besides, I like that street! :) (it's a picture I made myself, back in 1989 I think). —IJzeren Jan Uszkiełtu? 04:03, 9 February 2006 (PST)
Sounds good to me; but could they maybe have razed the older styled buildings? I'm fine to adjust the pictures. If you can get me links to other pictures that will show what you've got in mind, I can try and adjust the picture to match. BoArthur 09:21, 8 February 2006 (PST)

Oh there is plenty of them. The only problem is to colect some maching (more or less) to thoes old one. I’ll find some suitable and I’ll inform you (some of them will need to be remake).

What do you think about this photo of "Nowy Mąd" proposal? Follow by white rabbit 08:38, 11 March 2006 (PST)
Very well done! —IJzeren Jan Uszkiełtu? 13:55, 11 March 2006 (PST)

This is my next proposal for XIX century part of the city. It is corner of “Parwija urzeja” (golden street) *here’s* “Ulica złota” or as you want Palace of Culture and Science (Goood! How I hate this building!). The next proposal will be something from XX century (some thing with skyscrapers). Photo and the base are copyrighted with GNU/GPL. Follow by white rabbit 14:09, 13 March 2006 (PST)

Excellent! Very nice, really. Like I said a moment ago, it reminds me pretty much of Marszałkowska, but it has been quite a few years!
Regarding the Pałac Kultury: I must admit that I've been wondering about that for quite a while. *Here* it was a little present from Stalin. My idea: since the RTC never got under Russian domination after GW2, it would be highly unlikely that the same building, or something similar, would have been built on the place. I don't know, however, what used to be on its location before it was built. —IJzeren Jan Uszkiełtu? 14:14, 13 March 2006 (PST)
Corners of Złota with Marszałkowska and Chmielna streets. Follow by white rabbit 14:22, 13 March 2006 (PST)

So this is a picture of XX architecture of Warsina. This is a Praga district on the right side of Vistula river where there would be palce for such buildings. Although in my opinion financial center of Warsina should be still located in left side of Vistula, most of newer high residentional buildings should be in Praga. I have also some unique color pictures of *here* Warsaw form WWII occupation period witch are need to be redone, but I have no idea how and in witch way. Follow by white rabbit 02:36, 1 April 2006 (PST)

Very impressive! As for those colour pictures, what do you mean precisely? —IJzeren Jan Uszkiełtu? 09:11, 1 April 2006 (PST)
Hmm, it’s difficult to explain. Those are color pictures of Warsaw Main Railway Station (very modernistic art-déco building), Saxon Palace and Brül Palace (my proposal of Sejm and Senat of RTC) taken before blowing up everything by Germans in revenge after Warsaw Uprising in 1944. Those buildings do not exist now, Warsaw - Central station is sating in place of old one and four columns witch left from Saxon palace became (as they was in interwar period) tomb of unknown solder and in recent times Saxon Palace and Brül Palace are due to be rebuild. The only problem is the fact that those pictures are presented in page of some private German foundation witch publicized plane photos of Warsaw 3 days before devastating as pictures of this what had been taken from air on ground. I have no idea about copyrights of those pictures because on the page there are only information about those taken from air. Follow by white rabbit 10:34, 1 April 2006 (PST)
May I have the link? I'd love to see them for myself. As for using them: well, I suppose there is a contact line somewhere? Perhaps the best way to go is simply ask them. —IJzeren Jan Uszkiełtu? 11:19, 1 April 2006 (PST)
OK. URL are: and
And what do you think about them ??Follow by white rabbit 09:35, 9 April 2006 (PDT)

OK. I’m back after long brake with some new Wrsina photos proposals. Follow by white rabbit 04:10, 8 June 2006 (PDT)

Okay, feedback: The zeppelins could use some "haze" in front of them, as they look too "photoshopped." Otherwise, I like what you've made and I would suggest a page called Warsina in Pictures to house them as there are so many! BoArthur 06:48, 8 June 2006 (PDT)
I tried my best and uploaded new version and last two more, a random street house and “E. Wedeł” sweets manufacture. And if it is okay I could start to cerate Warsina in Pictures page Follow by white rabbit 08:16, 8 June 2006 (PDT)


I don't know...Warsina rolls off the English Speaker Tongue in my head a lot easier than War-Sign. BoArthur 10:17, 8 February 2006 (PST)

Really? Then I suppose "Warsaw" must cause you trouble too. Anyway, it doesn't really matter, since I use "Warsina" anyway all the time! —IJzeren Jan Uszkiełtu? 04:03, 9 February 2006 (PST)
No, Warsaw is great and fine, Warsina flows a great deal better for me than Warsine. I guess it's the stress pattern I've perceived for it. English doesn't usually have word final stress. BoArthur 10:44, 9 February 2006 (PST)
Neither does Wenedyk. By "War Sign" I meant: "Wár Sign"! ;) —IJzeren Jan Uszkiełtu? 11:08, 9 February 2006 (PST)

Name Change?

Isn't it now Warseine? BoArthur 16:08, 28 February 2006 (PST)

No, just "Warsine". Stress on the first syllable. Rhymes with "Carmine". —IJzeren Jan Uszkiełtu? 01:10, 1 March 2006 (PST)
