This site is not responsible for the content of external Internet sites.
Some services are provided by external providers that are supported by advertising. The following describes my policy:
UNSUPPORTED: I no longer support a website visitor counter. The counter became superfluous and moving the copyright notice to the previous counter space has freed up the central location for a new feature. Between April 2004 and April 2018 '141359' true visitors were recorded.
NOW UNSUPPORTED: Due to the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), I have reluctantly decided to withdraw the Guestbook service as I can no longer guarantee that the software used is GDPR compliant. Thus the Guestbook service is no longer supported for new messages but messages sent pre-May 25th 2018 (pre-GDPR are available). My thanks to all past contributors.
INTERNAL: The Links service is internal. Please contact me to have a link considered for inclusion.
UNSUPPORTED: I no longer support a Forum. After several years the Forum had only been used on three occasions and no responses to the postings occurred. I have included the previous Forum entries in the Guestbook that remains available for viewing only.
UNSUPPORTED: Due to the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), I have reluctantly decided to withdraw the service as I can no longer guarantee that the software used is GDPR compliant.
UNSUPPORTED: This site no longer supports the WebRing system; Yahoo, having totally misunderstood the reasoning behind webrings at the time it acquired the service, it centralised the service onto Yahoo's home page rather than the WebRing's home pages thus obviating much of the intrinsic value; Yahoo then dropped the project.
EXTERNAL: The external FreeFind service provides a periodic analysis of the search criteria entered by users. This is extremely useful in identifying what visitors are looking for on the site and enables the tuning of keywords to more satisfy their needs. So please do use the search service and if it doesn't help this time you may find it more so on your next visit. Please be assured that no personal information is, or can be, collected.
Please appreciate that sometimes genuine URL's (website pages) are 'hijacked' by irresponsible people who introduce auto-transfer code to route the visitor to other service(s). This is a most despicable act and there is no easy way to 'police' it.
Should anyone find that they are routed inappropriately or find objectionable content posted to these services, then I would be grateful to receive an email and I will take action to eradicate it.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
