16.04.09 1st Birthday of site

Although the visitor count on the INTRODUCTON page suggests that something over 1200 'hits' have been recorded since launch, another statistics programme suggests that visitors to the site are running at an average of around 1000-1200 per month! These are shown as having emanated from something like forty different countries too!

Have had to virtually stop all development lately as my computer is suffering from lack of RAM, and loading new material is painfully slow. Will be getting matters sorted soon.

In the meantime thanks for your interest - please keep browsing.

 

MAY 2009

Hopefully getting back to normal soon

28 DECEMBER 2009

LONDON TRANSPORT

 

Christmas is over and it appears that Gremlins are on the attack again. After making some small changes to the text matter on the very popular 'LONDON's (ALMOST) LAST TROLLEYBUSES paragraph yesterday I put the website to bed only to discover tonight that the whole damned paragraph has disappeared. This was one of the most watched parts of the site and I expect it has already been missed. I can only apologise and say that I will get it re-instated as soon as I can. The problem is that I don't have a recent hard copy so when it comes back it may be a little different. There are many photos to re-instate plus all their captions so I'm afraid it'll be done a bit at a time, but I intend to get on with it as soon as I can.

Happy New Year everyone - please keep browsing and tell fellow enthusiasts about mikesbuspages.com
