The Deck Log Archive

The Deck Log Files are installed using either a Self-Extractable Archive or installed manually, using a WinZip® Archive. If you are not savvy to these terms, then we suggest you take the Self-Extractable Archive, for all you need do is click on it, once you have downloaded it.

Make sure you make a mental note what Folder you download it to. Go to that folder using "Windows Explorer". This program is found in the Assessories Folder from off the Start Menu: Click on "Programs", then look for the 'Assessories' Menu.

* The File you will be looking for is named WWII_Deck Log.exe. This archive has been virus checked for your Security.

The Self-Extractable establishes a folder for all the text (.TXT) and Rich Text (.RTF) files called C:\DECKLOG, so you can read them using your Word Processing program. Text files usually are opened by default, using Windows Note Pad or if too large, they will be opened using Windows Word Pad by default.

Document (.DOC and .RTF) files are usually opened using Microsoft Word or Office, but the Yeoman is quite sure that Word Perfect will also open this format. If you are not sure what program you have, just click your mouse on the file and allow the default program to open them (Word Pad will open a DOC or .RTF file). Your Operating System knows how to read most files, and takes this responsibility away from your concern.

Once the individual files are open, you can then print the contents of each file, or do whatever you wish to do with them short of selling them (that's a no-no -Please read the Disclaimer in the archive for the Rules). You can also read Archive Info by clicking here.

The Archive contains Pages 1 - 75 of the Hancock Deck Log, plus other important and interesting documents which we included in the archive. We are trying to locate the Post WWII Deck Log, and when we have been successful, we will strive to include them in this Huge Historical Archive. That is what we do here on this website - Preserve True and Correct History!

To get this Program, please click on the OPSLOG.EXE link and save it to your computer...

List the Files in your Browser

  • If you would like to download a copy of WinZip® for trial (this trial program only 'teases' you to register, and is useable indefinitely. For your copy of the 32 bit program (Windows 95 and greater), you can download it from here.

  • If you have an earlier PC system, using 16 Bit (486 or non-pentium) you can get that version of WinZip® here.

The WinZip® Utility is a wonderful way of sending multiple files over the Internet via File Attachments. If someone sends you a WinZip® Archive, you simply open your copy of WinZip and open up/extract the files in the Archive to your computer.

WinZip® is the Cutting Edge of File Archiving in the PC World!
