Many thanks to Yahoo!/Geocities - without them, this site would never have been able to be published for all to see.
Albeit, as you may have noticed, there is a little re-appearing banner that Yahoo!/Geocities places on all of their pages so as to keep the service free. In order to remove this - as quite often it does get in the way of the information - just click on the up arrow (in the top right corner of the banner) which will then minimise it, thus enabling you to read all the information.
