The following is a list of links to other websites. The first section lists sites I have worked on. The second section is for my friends sites, and the last section is for other sites that I recommend. Disclaimer: Believe it or not, I am not responsible for the content of external sites... who'd have thought it?
This section lists sites that I have worked on. Please be aware that some sites will have changed significantly since handover.
- ABIS: The Association of British & Irish Showcaves. This uses PHP and MySQL extensively. The public side of the site gives information about the organisation and each of the member showcaves. The members can also log in to a members area to update their information, update their showcave information (displayed in the public side of the site) and post memos to each other. This uses PHP and MySQL with sessions. The site is coded to HTML 4.01 Strict and meets W3C Web Accessibility guidelines — something I strive for on all my latest work.
- Fula: This is my band's site. It has biographies of members, a history of the band, music information and downloads, photographs and more. I used PHP and MySQL to produce my own guestbook code, which also features a blacklist of IP addresses known to submit spam messages to guestbooks, in order to block them.
I once heard it said that from the internet, we will start to live in new communities — based not on location, but on ideas. Here is part of my community, still based largely on location though!
- Michael Clement: This is my good friend Mike's bid to get to grips with all this modern technowizzardry stuff. He has some wacky design tools (Web Dwarf??) and a 20-gallon hatfull of ideas. And you simply have to love the domain name!
- Rob Gould: Long-time friend and band-mate Rob built this site all by himself (although I think his girlfriend helped too... Hi Rachael!) to promote his rather excellent solo work.
- Keel Over: Good old Watson Mailey has put what must be far too much spare time to good use and produced a pretty comprehensive study of local folk legends Keel Over, and all their roots and offshoots. A website to smoke your socks to? Maybe...
That's mine and my friends sites out of the way. Now here are a few other cool places to go if you've had enough of this site!
- Greenpeace UK: This is the website of Greenpeace UK. You can learn about current campaigns and take part in a number of ways.
- GNU: More free software vicar? This is the website of the GNU project, based on the concept of software being free (not just in monetary terms) and open-source.
- The Guardian: The Grauniad online. My favourite newspaper, and a pretty good site too. You can even cheat on the crossword!
- Google: What other search engine is there...?
- Radio Paradise: This is an online radio station, broadcasting from Paradise, California. Someone told me about it shortly after I got broadband (though it still sounds ok on normal dial-up) and it is a fantastic station, mainly playing good rock music although there are still plenty of surprises in there. My CD collection rocketed when I started listening to it. Go and enjoy, but be prepared to give your Amazon account some hammer!
