All the things you never wanted to know about this web site
Why have you got your email address in a gif?A: Because I want to reduce the amount of spam I get delivered to my genuine address. I will increase the complexity of my procmail filters when I get a chance to learn them more, and I may change this. The direct link addresses work too, but get filtered to a box which I read maybe once a day.
Why does this website exist?
A: This website was started in June 1997, as a way for me to learn the basic principles of HTML. Since then, it's gone through two major redesigns, and now represents my hopefully if not minimalistic, clear and easy on the eye style. It contains things that reflect my personality and interests, and to tell people about how my life is. I hope it interests all the people who visit it in some way.
Where does this website exist?
A: As of April 2004, my web site lives on a collocated machine in London, owned and operated by myself and others.
Before that, from January 2000, the site was graciously hosted by the Magdalen College JCR UNIX team on shadowlands. I set up that server then, and have been helping to run it since.
Before that, from 1997-2000, the site existed on www.netcomuk.co.uk.
