Major Set of Updates - 30-5-2009:
First of all my galleries have all moved to a new site hosted
by my ISP as I was running out of space on my domain - they
can now be found here.
I have also just been through the last 3 years and written
up the various upgrades / tweaks and a couple of trips from
last year. These can be found via the links on the left
09 and also
under the Trips
Other than that, life has carried on, really busy at work,
jetting here, there and everywhere and trying to find time
for the 7 inbetween. A must has become the Goodwood
Breakfast meetings, and I've made each one this year
so - the first Sunday on the month, each with adifferent
theme. Some of my pictures can be found here.
Update - 9-3-2008:
I have decided to change them again - this time using Jalbum.
This has allowed me to link them all together, rather than
individually link, so you can go up levels and then view
other galleries without having to come back to the main
gallery page as a starting point.
NEW Galleries -
I have decided to change the way I have my galleries displayed.
I have, up until now, created my own tables, added each
picture and then created links to larger versions. This
just takes too long that I am not updating my site as often
as I should. I have started to use Simpleviewer
which is a plug-in flash viewer and I can export this directly
from my preferred photo viewer, Picasa,
which makes it very quick to produce now.
Whilst the galleries will still be linked from the individual
pages, I thought it might be good to add a dedicated page
so they can be browsed directly.
Another good reason to do this is that I have recently got
back into photography and bought a Nikon D80 dSLR. I plan
to put some non-Caterham galleries up on the web in this
Projects Added - 7-7-2007:
Details on an Emerald ECU, a carbon dashboard with LCD display
and n upgrade to the ECU and mapping session.
Projects Added- 26-6-2006:
A couple of small projects that I didn't have time to do
Misfire Is Fixed- 22-6-2006:
At last I've found the problem that was causing a misfire
and stopping me finishing the mapping on my car.
Projects Added- 12-3-2006:
I've finally found the time to get all of my gearbox and
fuel injection upgrades written up and onto my web site
- it's only taken me a year! Sorry about that.
Projects Updated- 3-1-2005:
I've updated the write-up of the upper wishbone conversion,
which is finally complete.
I'm an Uncle - 17-08-2004:
Many congratulations to my brother, Mathew, and Karen on
the birth of their first child, Amy Jane. Once they get
into a routine (yeah - good luck!) Mandy and I will try
to visit Devon to say him from Uncle Phil - how old do I
Might not appriciate a ride in the 7 just yet though :-)
Projects Added- 4-07-2004:
Added a new section for the projects of 2004. Some weight
saving but mainly the upper wishbone conversion.
Web Site Moved - 18-06-2004:
With my old ISP getting increasingly unreliable, I decided
it was time to purchase a domain and get my web site properly
hosted. Funnily the hardest part was deciding on a suitable
domain name. Our first choice was 'the-nest' which is the
name of our recently purchased house (hence few updates
due to DIY duties) but this was already taken so we went
for 'our-nest'... which it sort of is.
I registered the domain on 123-reg
which cost around £6 for two years. I then decided
to let them host it as well, as I don't know anything about
changing/setting-up DNS servers and the like and they'd
sort that out. If I find a better deal in a years time I'll
have had time to learn about moving it (maybe). I have gone
with the starter package as it is already double the space
that I had before at 100Mb, with 1.5Gb bandwidth/month and
15 emails (which it took me a while to figure out it has
to be said). Many thanks to my brother, Mathew, for loads
of info/advice on where to go, what to do, etc.
So, we'll see how it goes, but at least the site address
won't be changing from now on - sorry again Jason!
April Waffle Updated
Updated Valve amp info - with pictures. It's working at
March and April Waffle
Added - 20-04-2004:
Added both a March and an April page to the waffle
section. Way too late, but house and job hassles got in
Also updated my template so there is now a 'Back To Top'
arrow. The layout was tweaked slightly to ensure this stayed
right at the bottom all the time.
Added - 24-03-2004:
Site updated to move the old index page to a separate Introduction
page. The new main page will, hopefully be updated when
ever I make a change/addition, so it's easy to see what
has changed since a previous visit.
Also added a link to the Waffle
pages for the Introduction page with a brief description.
Added Copyright footer to the site template so all pages
will now feature that.
Support - 14-03-2004:
Added support for my preferred web browser, Mozilla Firefox
- see main navigation section. It really is a breath of
fresh air after certain packaged browsers and I recommend
it to anyone - give it a go. The best feature I think has
to be the tabbed browsing, where you can load links in the
background while you continue to read, or simply to grab
a load of links to visit later, all simply by holding down
the Ctrl key. Other good things includes the pop-up blocking,
which you can configure to allow for various sites, cookie
permissions and so on.
If you like that, then I also recommend the sister mail
Thunderbird which has the same feel and neat options.
