The Flying Cloud, R-505
Airships, adventure, gallant gentlemen, and sultry island maidens

It is a world much like our own, except that the Great War ended in 1916. As the Powers recoiled, exhausted, from the tragedies of Verdun and the Sommes, Woodrow Wilson was able to negotiate an Armistice that returned Europe to its pre-War borders. (For this accomplishment, he was honored with the Nobel Prize, though this was later tarnished by the failure of his long-sought League of Nations.) With the forcing ground of military need removed, aircraft development took a different path from the one it followed in our world, and effort that might have been wasted on developing glamorous but impractical aeroplanes was spent perfecting the far more capable airships. As the 1920's drew to a close, the world was peaceful and prosperous, linked by fleets of mighty lighter-than-air vessels from many nations.

Crawl errors

The last 5 crawl errors during the last 30 days. Having this empty doesn't necessarily imply that there isn't something wrong with the crawler. I'll go through these eventually but I don't mind if you ask me to check whether the crawler's doing the right thing.
