What’s new  

This web site is currently under substantial revision, and is being redeveloped as a personal archive.

  Hammies in Italy  

This link is to the Italy photo blog. There are currently 51 photos from the Hammies' recent holiday in Italy (including short stays in Morzine, Zell am Moos near Salzburg, and Frankfurt)

  Hammies in Peru  

This link is to the Peru photo blog — more photo than blog at present. There are currently 50 photos from our recent holiday in Peru (and some from other participants)

  Chamber music in Tuscany  

This link is to the Valdottavo pages, which describes and supports a chamber music workshop we have held in Tuscany for 6 years (1999-2005, with the exception of 2004). (In 2004 we went to Edinburgh instead for the antithesis of chamber music: a thumping great 80-piece orchestra but, except for the pizza trips to Lucca, equally satisfying.)

The pages still contain booking information for 2005. They will be replaced in due course with an archive of our activities, musical and otherwise, together with information about a possible future course.

  Professional activities   

I am a computer software specialist and IT consultant of some 25 years experience based in Thames Ditton, near London. My current activities centre on web design and development. I am also an experienced Win32 developer, specialising in Borland's Delphi platform. For more details, follow the Professional link on the left.

Portable links

You can create a fully function portable "favourites" link list, similar to that available using the "favorites" menu in Internet Explorer. The difference is that the list is stored on our Web server, under your login name, and is so available (for use or update) from any computer in the world!

To add a link, you must first log in (registering your name first if you have not already done so. Then click on <New link> on the list of links, or click on the o button to the right of any link and select New link. You can also add folders, nested to any depth, and place links within them. Finally, you can delete links or folders, rename them, or move an existing link or folder to another folder. Simply click on the o button to the right of the relevant link, and select the appropriate menu item.

To access a link, click on it in the normal way. To open a folder, click on the folder name, or on the + symbol to the left. To close a folder, click on the name again, or on the - symbol to the left.

Because this application is entirely web-based, security restrictions prevent the code from "reading" the address and title of the page you are currently viewing - otherwise all your web activity could be monitored, which is clearly undesirable! Therefore there is no neat way of automatically copying a link into this page.

The quickest way to enter a link is to press Alt+D in the web page you wish to store; this will highlight the link (URL); copy it with Ctrl+C or CtrlShift+INS. Then switch to this page, and paste the link into the URL box (either with Ctrl+V or Shift+INS. Enter the title, and you are finished.
