Omissions, corrections and/or additions to items published/released before 01/01/2008? Please email me - it would help if you made SURFING the first word on your subject line.

Please note that these lists will not include any items published/released after 01/01/2008 until further notice.

The reason is that I simply don't have the time to keep maintaining these web pages for the foreseeable future.

WARNING: Remember that if you download any software it is up to you to comply with licences and you are responsible for your own virus protection!

Software that you can run locally, as opposed to tide predictions from the web etc.
