You have been lucky enough to stumble upon one of the greatest and oldest treasures of the Internet. Oh yes...the dotcom bubble has well-and-truly burst and only those sites with enduring appeal and true quality are left standing. Well, those and a couple of thousand porn sites. This is not a porn site, lest any confusion should arise. I'm sorry if that's a disappointment.

Regular visitors (!) may remember that there was a bunch of drivel some profound wisdom at this point. If you need to draw inspiration from it again, click here to see it in its rightful place

[If you are one of those moral-majority types, you should probably skip this paragraph. Really. OK then...read it, but don't bother to complain...I really don't care]. In the interests of keeping the search engines interested (and in order to suck in some of those people looking for the porn), here are a few rude words: Fuck. Tits. Sheep. Bollocks. That should do it. [I warned you].

Anyway, since you've been curious (or bored) enough to read down this far, you could probably do with some exercise, so I'd better give you something to click on. Brace yourself...

My life is full of lots of things for which I don't have a proper place (and - if I'm honest - lots of proper places into which I couldn't be bothered to put the appropriate things). This web page is no different and here is just some of the virtual flotsam which doesn't seem to belong anywhere else

* My Favourite Sites (apart from this one, of course !)

* Guitar Pop Quiz - A Javascript game on the fretboard of a guitar

* Interval Pop Quiz - A Java game to test your ability to recognise musical intervals

* PitchPipes - A Java Guitar Tuning Applet

* How I fixed the screen of my Nokia 8210 mobile phone for €1.40 !

* Calendar

* The BogPeople Patent Pension Calculator

No self-respecting web site is complete without a hit counter. Apart from serving the vanity of the site's creator (which is rarely does since he/she usually clocks up most of the hits), it serves to comfort the poor entrapped surfer that others have suffered through the web page and survived.
