Site News and Updates

Earlier this year I wrote how the web site takes more and more time and costs to maintain. I have actively sought a method to improve the site while reducing workload and allow me more time for research.

Virtually every solution brings me back to a data base driven site that will ensure continuity of information. It is also time to move away from my old web development software and update the hosting server. With limited funding it has been impossible to afford professional help. My appeal for financial donations has raised exactly £0.00 ($0.00)

Over the next few months I'll be applying my new found skills so expect a few problems along the way. If the web site shows strange page layouts or hyperlinks suddenly fail I'll be working to fix them.

In the meantime I'll continue to update the site as and when I can.

Please keep sending me any amendments, photos, information in the usual manner by email to mbenshar@aol.com
