Website Under Construction

If you’re very old (i.e. over 40) you may remember the early days of the internet, when people were just starting to get their own web pages.

I won’t say web ‘sites’ because only the very rich could afford to register and host a domain. You used to get a page on a community platform, type ‘Welcome to Joe Bloggs’s web page’ and the server would stick a standard graphic on your page.

One of my favourite sites was Geocities, a wonderful introduction to the Internet for many people. You can still use it in Japan, apparently.

Well, this is a homage to those days, when bbc.com was owned by the Boston Bay Computer company. I hope to take this post down soon, because it’s only here while I rebuild my site.

I did look into having a Localhost of WordPress. Nah. I’m too old for that.

That’s me…
