It's amazing how much WWW pages change over time. Thus I've decided to take some screen shots. Every month or so I'll take a screen shot, so that the development of the pages can be viewed. Here's a few that I've managed to get a screen shot of. I've also added a basic set of rules for the design of my Home page (although please be warned I've not had any formal training in WWW design, so I may be teaching all the wrong principles).
