The most recent significant changes on this website

I’ve removed all Javascript from the site, so that people who keep Javascript disabled (or whose browsers don’t have it) have full access to the site – I didn’t use it much, and everything I used it for is now done server-side. (If I’ve missed any, do let me know!) (27th June 2017)

Small but significant updates:

I said a couple of possibilities were “obvious” in the section on Submarine Compressed Air Storage in Storing Energy. Apparently they weren’t obvious to everybody (my mistake, no fault of theirs), so there is now a link to explanations (rather than cluttering up an already long article). (9th October 2017)

Electric Magic (in Education) now has a preliminary note explaining that I wrote it in 1991, and things have changed significantly since then. (7th July 2017)

Major rewrites, updates, or extensions:

(Of interest only to RISCOS users!) XP1FontEd now handles scaffolding far better than it used to. (Improved 7th October 2017)

I’ve improved one of the illustrations for the ebook of my next novel, ExileColour Map. (9th August 2017)

(Of interest only to RISCOS users!) XP1Dr2SVG now has a facility for putting a View Box on the SVG file. (9th August 2017) (Improved 10th August 2017)

Completely new:

A link on my Politics page about why I never write about “overpopulation” – I didn’t write it, but it puts my point of view perfectly: I never write about overpopulation. Here’s why. (6th October 2017)

A bit of a rant about Off Roading. (29th September 2017)

A gallery of photographs taken in London. (17th September 2017)

Another new Recount – another old story, only just written up – Sewer Workers. (14th September 2017)

A new Recount – an old story, but only just written up – Special Branch. (19th July 2017)

Link to an article in the Pharmaceutical Journal (14th July 2017) The cholesterol and calorie hypotheses are both dead – it is time to focus on the real culprit: insulin resistance on my Miscellaneous Links page. (19th July 2017)

Links on my Political Links page and my Energy/Fracking page to an article about the misbehaviour of a fracking company in British Columbia (Canada): A Dam Big Problem. (3rd May 2017)

A new piece on thermal energy storage in Storing Energy. (30th April 2017)

Photographs of Nidaros Cathedral, Trondheim, Norway. (14th April 2017)

A list of the apps I use on various computers: Horses for Courses. (1st March 2017)

Two new links to articles about rights and good manners when taking photographs in public places, on Miscellaneous Links (26th December 2016).

A new recount, which is also a piece on education: Teaching Folks to Think (4th December 2016).

I’ve completely rewritten The Thorium Myth which was never terribly satisfactory. (2nd December 2016) It now needs another page about nuclear reactor types, which I’m working on.

Several new (old, but new on here) photos on the Faroes page (27th October 2016)

Virginie’s Lament in Political Links (20th October 2016). (My friend Virginie, a French citizen who has lived in England for twelve years, reacts to British MPs’ vote against the opposition motion on the rights of EU nationals.))

Broken links etc. fixed:
