It is with regret that I have to report that my cat, Jack, has now passed on. He was found in someone’s back garden where he had staggered to after he was hit by a car on our street.

Back up and running once more!

Have you noticed something? Since November, this space was completely empty. But now the site is alive and kicking again! Not only that, but the Nemo and zxoncam websites are also back up again. I finally got round to paying my hosting bills and just look at me! A fully fledged webmaster once more! (more…)
