As many visitors will know, this site has co-existed with an identical mirror site for many years which duplicates its content.  Originally this was done to combat the excessive downtime and other unreliabilities which were a feature of the internet in times past.  However, now that web hosting is more dependable, it has become too expensive and time-consuming to maintain two synchronised copies of the site.  Consequently, and as previously notified, the site is now closed.  You can now only access the other site at - note the different URL for future reference.  This site is an exact copy of the previous one in terms of content and format, so everything you used to find here is still available and you will not need to spend time learning how to navigate around it.  Apologies are offered for any inconvenience.
