May 2010. Stephanie died peacefully on 19th April after a short stay in hospital. She had been suffering from acute cervical cancer. Fred will continue to run the business to the best of his ability. The web site is slowly getting under control again as he tries to take over some of Stephanie's responsibilities, and learns some of the mysteries of Dreamweaver.

Miscellaneous Links

 

We hate broken links so if we have any we would be very grateful if someone would tell us (we do check them ourselves as well).

If your site is here, please tell us if you move.

If you have a site which may be of interest to our visitors, please tell us about it.


The Houses of Parliament site is one of those sites which I'm glad I know about but may never revisit. It lists M.P.s both alphabetically and by constituency, gives online access to various government papers - all sorts of things which may be useful one day (but not necessarily today).

Another useful government site is the Open Government site, which has all sorts of reports, articles and information from all manner of government departments; for example, The Office of Fair Trading pages can be found here. The pages are available in frames and non-frames versions (I prefer non-frames, which downloads very quickly most of the time).

Another useful site is the Internet Public Library, with thousands of electronic books, covering all sorts of subjects.

More electronic books can be found at Project Gutenberg, which has a vast selection of all sorts of texts including such varied offerings as Little Women, Pride and Prejudice, the poems of WIlliam Blake, Ambrose Bierce's Devil's Dictionary (if you have never encountered this before, do try it), plus works by - among many others - Agatha Christie, Zane Grey, Beatrix Potter, Arthur Ransome, Bertrand Russell and Sun Tzu.

The Encyclopaedia Mythica contains all sorts of mythologies, from Iroquois Indian to ancient Persian, and more are being added all the time.

The Archers Addicts The Archers is, I think, the longest-running soap opera in the world. It is older than I am, and I have grown up alongside some of the characters as my mother used to listen on a Sunday morning. I'm still very fond of it and thanks to the BBC's "Listen Again" service (the best thing on the Net in my opinion) anyone can listen to the Archers, no metter where in the world they live.

I've only just discovered The Dilbert Zone. Dilbert is the central character in a comic strip about organisations, management and the world of work. As Dilbert is comic-strip based, the site has lots of graphics and can be slow to download but well worth the wait.

More humour at the Private Eye site.

McGonagall Online

If you like films - or if you are studying films - you may find the Script-O-Rama site of interest, as it contains over 600 TV and film scripts, including 2001, Bladerunner, Star Wars and three of the Star Trek films.

CNN Travel Guide

The White House

The Virtual Wall - a virtual rendition of the Vietnam Memorial with some of the many stories of those who died, many of them tragically young.

National Geographic Online; lots to explore when you want a change from cameras (as if!).

Web Pages That Suck, a site which looks at some of things web page designers should not do.

Web Shareware, try Tucows where there is a good selection of both PC and (more importantly for us) Mac shareware. Look out for five-cow software if you want the best.

Currency Converter; check prices by changing any currency into any other. I admit I did not try anything difficult (dollars into pounds to check my amazon.com bill) but it was so easy to use and quite quick.
