The answer is not hard to find: "For the time being, the primary use for this site will be to host details of my upcoming cruises for access by others that are interested in joining me."

And while we are on the subject of intellectual property, I wonder what the MARTINI & ROSSI WINE COMPANY make of martini.je

I am reminded of the huge amount of hassle I had from the British Marine Federation when I set up a web site years ago to help people find transport and accommodation in the area of Earls Court in January. The domain was londonboatshow.info and they went ba-llis-tic! I think it is now operated by an escort agency, which is obviously a much better use for it.
Well yes, where esle does Martini come from? Surely there would be no word if the company had never been founded?

And sorry. Can't access the site, it's blocked under pornography. Like Keith's was a while back (no joke!)

You made yourself clear but never answered the question first time round.

Disabling right click helps to stop people nicking the photos although if they do want them they will print screen and crop.

They're welcome to make me an offer for it

I wish I could go back 20 years and buy a few domain names

I'd be running a Fabio Buzzi owners association now

Attempting to load "Mr. Wimpy" via a tape recorder onto my C64 for the umpteenth time, I didn't see much of a future in these computer thingys

I had one of them,and I think I had the masssive ram upgrade too, all of 16kb.
Was that before or after the ZX81? Never had a BBC A (or was it B?) but I remember friends that did. First proper PC I had was in 1989ish. Before some of our forum members were born MSDOS v3 and to think people complain today that they can't understand windows!

Aye, them were the days Think we had a Spectrum before the C64. We had BBc B's at school which rendered them way too uncool for home and branded you a geek! I think once I'd beaten the C64 to death in a rage (prob about a month after purchase) I didn't go near a computer again till 2002 when we got a family laptop. At which point I discovered porn and never looked back

Just a year after a certain Vipermax owner was born

Sadly the host I'm using (1&1) are a little uncooperative. I can't even add code so no embedded vids etc. for the moment at least. Might trial it free for a month, add the code, then see if it stays on. I've had to be a little bit clever to make things work - like gifs for rotating images where using a proper software package would have done it automagically, and splitting the database between boats and email adresses. It's a little fiddly, but I think it's worked. More content coming this week!

I see you have all been having a productive time while I was out bleeding a hydraulic autopilot.

My first 'pooter was a Commodore 64 in '86, Mr Wimpy was a truly bad game! Had two Amigas then, aah the brand loyalty.

Had my first email account (still have it too) in the 90s, back then there were more FTP sites than there were HTTP!
