I've also setup webalizer so I should be able to see if anyone is visiting this site. Hopefully this will allow me to update the contents more frequently. And get it so Google and Msn index it again, as this was broken with the old hosting situation.

I'm having a look at making this web site 'standards compliant'. So to give it a try, I have converted this page to 'xhtml 1.0 strict' and added the w3c logo to the bottom of the page, which links to their validation service. I've had to play around with the CSS a little bit, and learn some new tricks. I may convert some more of the site, if I decide I'm happy with what I've done. I'm not yet convinced of the benefits of this xhtml & standards compliance!

Also updated the main page to correct the link to Dick Morrell's Blog which is back online.

I've consolidated some of the 'Operating System' pages into one, as there were not enough links to justify seperate pages for them.
