|Page layout and design by Keith Newman using Microsoft's FrontPage 98 & 2000, Ulead Photo Impact, Adobe Photoshop, ScanMaker Plus from Microtek, my PCs (one of which died in service and needed replacing) which sit astride my desk competing for my attention. Perhaps now I've emptied the garage I'll spend more time looking through the real window on the world rather than into these beguiling 17 inch imposters. Page layout optimised for Microsoft Explorer 5.0. A special thanks to Paula's son, teenage wonderkid Brook Novak for the final code for autorun and the sound Jukebox in the multimedia section.
