Please Update Your Bookmarks

These pages have lived at (the website we originally got for free with our rented flat's residential dialup account) for twenty years!  The one thing that URL had going for it was stability: I kept it stubbornly unchanged while Demon Internet went through a long process of being bought by a company that was then swallowed by a bigger one, and so on.  Then just as the last fragments were beginning to dissolve away in Vodafone's stomach acids, the flat's lease fell apart first – which also meant the end for the Demon account.  I don't know how much longer the ghost URL will continue to exist; it has somehow managed to reach its vigintenary, but I can't see it surviving much longer, so please make sure your bookmarks have been updated to point at

Since the change of domain also involved shaving off the old vestigial top‐level directory, some of the pages that once resided up there are now archived in this subdirectory:

One that I've left out is the “Caffeine Users' Personal Preferences Archive”.  For many years the flat's shared server lived in the kitchen, which meant we had a good practical reason for having a webpage that documented the ways residents and visitors took their coffee and/or tea; but the Java applet that was included just for the sake of the pun was such a terrible piece of legacy code that I'd rather let that page rest in peace.
