|  Comment Archives for:   2003    2001   2000  |      |

As from Monday 31st March 2003, I shall not be adding further 'Comment Pages' to this website, but instead will be posting all future comments to my 'blogger' site (http://billcameron.blogspot.com). All previous postings remain on-line here - see the table above for the current year and the links above for other years.

However, apart from the change to the way I post 'Comment', this remains my main website and will be updated from time to time as in the past - visit the rest of my site by clicking on the 'home' link above.

I have taken this decision because updating the comment pages in this website takes an effort in creating new pages and changing the HTML coding in various other associated pages throughout the site, which I have come to feel gets in the way of the postings themselves. Posting articles and comment to my 'blogger' site is much easier most of the time (except when there are problems with the Blogger host) - I'll let this run for the next few months, at least, and review the situation then.

I am leaving all the 'Archives' on-line on this website (see links at top of this page, or in the table box immediately above this), for all articles written during 2000, 2001, 2002 and for the year 2003 upto 24 March 2003. I consider my own archiving system (showing 'headlines' for each article) to be superior to the purely chronological archiving within the Blogger host, so I shall be adding roughly every six months to my 'blogger' pages a similar kind of linked archive index with article 'headlines' to supplement the chronological archiving provided by the Blogger host. I hope therefore to facilitate posting new articles 'on the fly' whilst retaining the benefits of a 'headline' index.
