They've Given Me The Black Spot, Jim

Apologies to anyone out there still reading the site but we seem to have developed a software glitch that I know not how to cure. Unless it's just my computer, the pages recently added all seem to have their titles blacked out. The writing's there, if you hold the mouse pointer on it for a few seconds it will pop up a little box with the title in it but the actual title box itself is nowt but a black blob.

I don't know what's causing the glitch. I don't know how to fix it (short of re-writing the entire site from scratch). Frankly, the way the last week or so has gone, this has been the icing on the dog turd.

If anyone knows how to fix this problem I'd be delighted to hear from them but I am beginning to suspect that the site, like me, is beyond redemption.

This Is The End, My Only Friend, The End

I asked to be given a website to write and, for my sins, I was given one .....

Well, end of another year so this is 'So long and thanks for all the fish' for 2002. I shall be literally slaving over a hot stove in the Sloop for large chunks of the next fortnight and the Reporting Team, being so popular, have been invited to so many parties I doubt if they'll be in any condition to take up the editorial cudgels.

Not sure if we'll be back in the new year. Got lots of 'real' work on and I've been struggling to get anything worthwhile on the site for ages. Hell, I can't even seem to get the existing site material to function properly any more (as mentioned above).  Seem to be encountering the law of diminishing returns as Spooky St. Ives slips into venerable old age. My recent editorial sallies have gone down like a lead balloon in some quarters so maybe it's time to hang up the HTML quill.

Thanks to all the contributors who have got in touch and livened up the E-Mails section. Here's to 2003 and, to quote that Elizabethan rockabilly playwright, Shakin' Spears:-

If we do meet again, why, we shall smile;
If not, why then this parting was well made
