About The Site

“Best viewed with Netscape 4.7 for UNIX/X on a 1280x1024 resolution with 24-bit color depth, maximum contrast, minimum brightness, in a 1000x960 window placed in the exact center of your display with this window manager configuration [etc.] -- Unk.
"...with a colour temperature of 9300K using barco phosphors and connected to an AGP Matrox G200 via 5 individual RG179B/U coax cables with a contact resistance less than 0.1 mOhm..." -- David Jordan

On an <insert impossible to find make of monitor> here. -- Peter Corlett

Monitor? I was thinking along the lines of a UKP 10k data projector placed 3142mm from a 2m diagonal screen in a semiconductor clean room with no more than 5 10um particles per cubic metre of air...

Nah... That's going too far... What you want to say is, "Don't look at this page, it's crap." -- David Jordan ”

This site has been created using the vi-clone text editor Lemmy, and is designed to be as friendly to absolutely every browser, including lynx users. It's also designed to be quick, so I've tried to keep the number of images down to an absolute minimum, and the actual content to a maximum. Most of the website is created using principles outlined by Jakob Nielsen. I've tested the website with Lynx and Internet Explorer and is fully HTML 4.0 compatible as tested on the W3C validator, except for the delightful rubbish that tripod attaches to the top of each page. All images were either grabbed from other sites, or created using Micrografx picture publisher. The website name itself derives from an album by the same name by a wonderful little band called morcheeba, and I've used this as my net name for an age. If enough people are willing to contribute information I'll gladly convert this site into a morcheeba fan club page.

Though the name might suggest it, I'm not a hippy, and requests to turn this site into a flower-power site will meet with disdain.

About Me

Hi, My Real Name is Jonathan Daniel, I'm a Computer Programmer from Birmingham, England working for Intercity Mobile Communications. Educated in numerous places including Tunbridge Wells Grammar School For Boys, Langley Comprehensive, Solihull Sixth Form College and Keele University I am now the product of the English education system and it probably shows. I have an active social life going to clubs and pubs three or four times a week, go down the Villa occasionally, and do a lot of swimming (three or four times a week).
I am a huge fan of the Glee (site has flash) comedy club in Birmingham which I visit at least twice a month, I love my old computer games (check out for lots of abandonware games) to the point where I've stopped playing new ones - FIFA? Give me SWOS any day! ;-)
