I don't expect many people will need to look at this page, but if you've experienced any problems on this website, the answer is probably here.

Firstly, the site has been designed for a minimum screen resolution of 800 x 600 pixels, with 16 bit (65000) colour. If you are unable to change your display to these settings, then you may have to scroll to see all of the page. I apologise.

Secondly, I expect most people viewing this site to be using either Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator version 4 or above - according to my server logs, this accounts for well over 90% of visitors. If you're using a browser which has not been tested and things look wrong, I apologise. Some Flash animation is now included, but it's not integral to the site.

The 3D model requires a browser plug in. I hope you decide that it's worth the trouble of the 900kb download (this will happen automatically on many Windows PCs). If playback is jerky try right-clicking on the model and tinkering about with the options there. Parts of the site also make limited use of Java, but I realise this can be unreliable so there's always an alternative available.

There are now 360 degree panoramas available to view, using Quicktime4. This is another 'standard' plug in, but you may have to download it. You can do it now, or do it soon.

Except for the guestbook and CAAG pages, all opinions are my own, and I take full responsibility for them. If you don't like them, tough. Build your own web site. Thanks to Merseyworld, for hosting this site, and to all those who have taken the time to contact me.
