|Why is this site
I started putting this site
together for a few reasons. I have to admit that
one is to show off, but then most people show off
in some way and this is really fairly harmless.
Secondly I wanted to be able to keep people
interstate and overseas that I know exactly how I
am spending my time. Lastly is to provide a
scientific resource of marine life - it still has
a long way to go on that score, but it's a
beginning. All marine images are scanned from
If you are thinking that I am going around
upsetting delicate marine habitate then rest
assured I am not. I am part of a group that works
with the Museum of Victoria to collect data and
specimens of intertidal marine life. We collect
only when necessary and all specimens end up at
the Museum. We also have 17 years of census data
covering the entire of the Victorian coast.
All pages on this site are carefully hand
crafted using Windows Notepad. The choice of
Windows over other operating systems is not
because I enjoy using it - if I had my choice of
operating systems I would still be on my Amiga -
but because, unfortunately, most new software is
written for Windows first and then maybe for the
Mac. When more software is available for it I
intend to change to Linux.
In the Future.....
I do plan on updating these pages more often,
but life gets hectic and plans go astray. That
said, as I already have 6 months worth of monthly
featurs I should be able to find the time to
change them regularly.
