My home page
This lists changes to my website in 1999. The most recent changes are at the top of this page, and the oldest ones are at the bottom.
These pages have now migrated to a new server! I have now registered the domain golgotha.org.uk (previously I was using golgotha.demon.co.uk), so I have updated email addresses accordingly. I'll keep my old Demon site going for a little while, but I'll try to phase it out. If you have a link to my old site, please update it.
I have taken this opportunity to remove the hit counter from my home page. There are a few reasons for this:
My ego has been satisfied. I have received over 600 hits at the old site since 1998-02-10, which is more than I expected. Of course, this may be affected by search engines trawling the net. Which leads me on to ...
Eric S. Raymond's objection, in his HTML Hell Page. Among other things, he mentions that hit counters mess up caching.
There isn't a hit counter readily available at the new site, and I can't be bothered to write one!
I have amended the standard footer on all my pages, so that it shows my name, and links to my email address. (Previously, it displayed my email address.)
I have updated my acne page, so that it now includes a link to the CARES website. (I have also updated the reference to my age; 25 rather than 24.)
I've added an afterword to the page which explains the name Golgotha, commenting on the change of server.
I've updated my CV. This now includes my new email address, and shows that I have passed the MCP exam "Designing and Implementing Distributed Applications with Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0". I've also made a cosmetic change to the skills grid.
I've corrected a typo on my anosmia page; I've now put the apostrophe in "McDonald's".
In the disclaimer for my opinions, I've removed the reference to Demon being my ISP.
I've added a heading to my photo page.
I've updated the time references in my friends page, and my creative writing page. I've also updated the link to ICSF in both pages.
I've updated my CV. This now shows that I have passed the MCP exam "Designing and Implementing Desktop Applications with Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0", and that I am proficient in Visual SourceSafe 6.0. I've also made some cosmetic changes, and added a link to download the CV in Word 97 format.
I've added a footer to all of my pages except for the main index and change logs, giving my email address and the date it was last updated. N.B. I'm not counting the addition of this footer as an update to the individual pages, so they don't all say "Last updated on 1999-09-23". However, I am counting it as a change to the site as a whole, hence this entry, and the changed date on the main index page. Whew!
I've added a page about Star Trek.
My Golgotha page now links back to the main index.
Now that I've got a new job, and have got a bit older, I've updated my CV and geek code accordingly. My CV also includes updated phone numbers, due to BT's latest number change. My geek code also now reflects my intention to learn Perl (I have the O'Reilly book ready and waiting!).
I've updated a link on my friends page, now that karne has relocated his website.
I've added my anosmia page to the Anosmia Support Ring.
I've thoroughly overhauled my CV.
I've updated a link on my photo page, now that Bob has relocated his website.
I have added some technical terms to my tongue ties page.
I've added a new section to this site, dealing with the Microsoft Certified Professional program.
I've updated my CV, to show that I am now a Microsoft Certified Professional in Visual Basic 5.0.
I've removed a dead link from my friends page, and made minor changes to the remaining entries.
I've updated the Golgotha page, since the Aramaic word actually translates as "place of the skull" rather than "the place of a skull". William (my source for this information) is somewhat of a purist when it comes to theology!
I've made various changes to my CV.
I've updated my acne page, based on additional information I've received.
I've moved 1998's change log to a separate page.
