About The Site

When was this site created?
It was first published to the net on 17th December 2004 at 13:34 British time. Actually it was created a bit before then, but no one could see it... lol (was stored on my computer). Version 2 was created on 27th March 2005, Version 3 was released on the 7th August 2007 and Version 4 was release on 17th January 2010. Notice the 7 connection :)

Why was it created?
Well, thanks to my friends who hassled me to produce a web page, this was created... lol. Actually it is quite nice to have this so when I am old and nearly dying, I can come back and read up on things that I have done.

What experience do you have in web designing?
Started to design pages in Year 7, I think that was in 1997 or 1998 lol. Can't remember. Inspired by my cousin in Australia, who I actually haven't seen in pe…


This is the place where I will chuck things in that I do not know where to put on my website. So hopefully this will fill up soon, but it looks like it isn't yet...
Fire Alarm
What is this... well it is a collection of dates and times on when there have been a fire alarm in my accommodation at Stamford Street. The reason I have made this page is because I am fed up on the amount of times the fire alarm has been set off, and it will be interesting to see how many will be set off until I leave this place.
My University Result
What is this... well it is my collection of the results I achieved when studying at King's College London. I thought I would copy and paste here so that I will always have the results with me, and also show of to everyone, LOL.
