Special Thankyous to everybody who has helped me!

Sofcom Pick of the Net Award 06-08-01
Thanks to everybody who has helped in keeping this page alive over the years!
This web site, all in all, has been my most interesting and successful web site yet. With the competitions (including give-aways of hundreds of CD's from sponsors), the mentions on triple j national radio, the message board which has seen nearly 10,000 messages posted over the years, the fan list with over 500 fans email & ICQ, the hundreds of reviews & articles, the hundreds & hundreds of surveys received, and the 1500 people on the mailing list, it really has been incredible!
Feel free to support me further by seeing what else I'm up to on my personal homepage. :-)



This web site did not happen by itself. I would like to thank the following people for their help and support:
(I know I've missed some people, its very hard to include everyone, so please let me know if you think you should be up here.)



Triple J

Thanks to triple j and all its staff for their support!

Michael Tunn - For linking to my "Anti-Paul McDermott's Throw Your Arms Around Me" web site which was basically the starting point for this entire web site! Even though I'm over this page now, if it wasn't for Tunny's link to it, this page may not exist now! (the anti-paul mcdermott TYAAM site has since deceased)

Chris Norris & Justin Wilcomes from the Net 50  - For linking to my new web site and for all their support. And for calling me and interviewing me on the Net 50 (7th November '98) and talking to me a couple of other times. Without their support this web site may not exist.

Rosie Beaton - (from the Net 50), for donating some jjj stuff for the competition (May 99).

Rosie & Justin again - for putting me on air again (5 June 99) to give my page a bit of a plug. Oh yeah and thanks to the phone answering girl too (sorry, you never told me you name!).

Jane Gazzo & Dr Hex from Super Request - For their support for the new web site too, and for interviewing me live on Friday night on November 6th. Thanks Jane! Hope your having fun whatever your doing there days!

Caroline Tran & Dr Hex from Super Request - For talking to me on January 27th live at about 9pm, and of course for playing my requests! :-)

Dr Hex & Super Request & the phone answering girl again - For playing my request and my quick little plug (they had to play it for the only time I wasn't listening to the radio though!! I wanted to hear that song dammit)

Karen Barlow in particular, as well as Adam Spencer, Rosie Beaton, and Stuart Matchett from triple j - For their support, message board posts, Emails, and whatever :).

And thankyou triple j for linking to my page in the 'Cool sites' seciton of the triple j web site (I get a significant number of referals just from that one link!),
And also, for putting my address in the fantastic triple j 2000 diaries!! (see the list of cool sites between September & October).

And all the rest of the ABC people who check out the web site occasionally.
