Site Revisions.

February 2002.

Well doesn't time fly? Last update was in November and now its February already. Geocities has been hosting me now for a couple of months and all appears to be going well... and am averaging 500 visitors per month. Some minor complaints about the pop-ups but unfortunatly I have no control over that issue, so I must appologise. Sorry.

Minor link fixes this revision on the ham link page and also;

The latest version of QSL Maker has been uploaded (version 2.3).

Updated the file to include the required DLL and OCX and how to register them if you don't already have them.

Updated Logger to include the upgrade to version 8.07.

November 2001.

Well it's been a long time since updates, what with work and all. But I think you will find the site a little easier to navigate now that the dead links have been removed and some of the html cleaned up.

Some of you may be aware that the software section was down for some time (I don't actually know how long though). The people who were hosting the software for me closed their site down and didn't inform anyone, as a result, I, like many others had either no web site or a page full of dead links... as in my case.

Frame breakers have been added to the bottom of every page. The frame breakers are NOT Java script but are links that will open up a new window. This was brought about by a growing list of people who complained that the site was always stuck in a frame when they clicked on a link from another web site. I hope this helps.

I now know how many visitors I get and where they go so I have removed the banners and am no longer with For interests sake, this site gets on average 600 hits per month, with the most popular pages being the amateur radio and blacksmithing pages. Not bad for a hobby :-)

Finally, I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and trust that the world will become a more peaceful place to live in - in the near future.

Ride safe - Play safe - Stay safe.
