*** To view pictures, left click on one and when it opens left click on it again and it will expand to fill the screen, or at least optimise. From 11th July 2008 they automatically open in a new tab.
25/04/12 – This is just to inform of a couple nice changes in Firefox 11.0. I have been holding off updating to it since the the first new generation of FF, 4.0 I think, was just so unworkable.
The best thing I can tell you is if you click on one of my pix they always open in a new tab at original/bigger size, but now FF 11.0 has been optimised for picture viewing. Gone is the white BG with picture snapped to top left corner. Now it loads to the centre of a dark BG which is so much better for viewing. FF 11.0 is also stable and faster, on my comp anyway, and most useful add-ons are working. A fairly painless update of the browser too. Kudos to FF people.
Basically, if you like my pix enough to want to see them bigger and better FF 11.0 is good. All you have to do is DL it - http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/ – and click a pic.
All the best. Mark

The following is some general information I think is pertinent. And some guidance on how to navigate through the blog. I trust it is helpful to you. If you have any questions or comments use the comments box at the bottom of this page, or any page, and I’ll respond as soon as I can.
The latest post is the one you see when you arrive at this site, that’s the front page. The front page shows the last ten posts, for now. This month’s posts are accessible from the Next Page button at the bottom of the front page. The order is reverse chronology, one post at a time. A list of Recent Posts is also accessible from the sidebar.
Or : All posts are accessible from the calendar – Find A Post By Date – in the sidebar. You can click from month to month and hover on any highlighted day and see what the post title is for that day. Click the number and you go to that post. I suggest you open the post in another tab in your browser. See tip below.
Note : The Titles page is just that and all titles are now linked and will open in a new tab of your browser when clicked on. I use Firefox and don’t know about other browsers.
Note : The search engine is unpredictable at best. And little surprises can be delightful. So I leave it there in the sidebar.
To leave a comment or question for me on any post go to the bottom of the post or page and click on a line reading ‘no comments yet’ if you are the first, or you will find a grey box you just left click in it and start writing.

Note on Pictures : From 11 July 2008 pictures in posts open in a new tab of your browser when clicked on. Before this date they still open in the same window unless you follow the Tip below. Following the tip below may still be the easiest way to load pictures for viewing since when opened this way the new tab stays beneath the one you are viewing, it depends on what you want and how fast your connection is.
I trust it works for you.
Tip. I often find it helpful to open different Pages of a website in different Tabs of the browser. Right click the link you want to go to and you get a box of options. Go to the second from the top, Open Link In New Tab, and left click it. You now have two pages open in their own tab. When done this way the new tab opens beneath the one you are viewing.
You can open as many tabs as you like to make it easier to get around in the site. It saves the time it takes going from one page to another in the same tab and allows you to quickly flip between tabs/pages should you find it necessary or useful for any reason.
