WHAT'S NEW ON TOM'S SITE


This site has been going since December 96 , is becoming much bigger than I originally intended and is constantly changing. In response to the multitude of requests - at least three - from those who regularly return , I have decided to keep a log of all the additions and changes. This will hopefully make it easier for you all to keep track of what you have seen and ensure that you don't miss anything.
