History of the site
The earliest pages on this site date from 1994. I'm celebrating my tenth anniversary with a redesign. The site should be simpler to navigate. Every page can now be printed out directly - the version you print will be optimised for printing, and will give you an excellent result on most A4 printers.
I have used all the following programs or tools at some stage in designing these pages:
The original pages were written using an Acorn A440/1 machine using HTMLEdit from RComp and Draw, Paint, Revelation, Art Works, WebGif2, InterGif. Odyssey and Agora were originally written using Genesis Professional. Now all probably extinct, like the marvellous Acorn machines.
In 1996, I acquired my first PC and the site has been hosted ever since by Globalnet: with few problems except for the threat to shut us down when the Caecilius page had 30,000 hits in a day after we made the front page of the Times newspaper in February 2000.
Most of the images on the site are mine. If I have inadvertently infringed someone's copyright, I apologise and will remove the offending item when requested.
Here - for archival interest mainly! - is a selection of the various "awards" which sites used to give each other in the good old days.
