The Author apologises for the site disappearing occasionally.


[Bottel] The Royal Society Against Clumsy Idiots? Unfortunately, these pages may best be experienced with Windoze and Why should I make Big Bill Richer... [Quibbel] Yes but, who be Big Bill Richer?

But have been designed to be compatible with most Browsers,
including Lynx, or any other text browser or text reading/speaking browser.

[Serious Announcer] Mayhap there be a few dummy stub links where things be not yet finalised.
[Battel] If thou dost click on some of the images, thou shalt hear them!
[Quibbel] Verily, the fireworks doth explode!
[The Author] Many of the graphic images have links (or sounds); or humourous comments hidden in the ALT attribute - without MSIE 2 or above, or a text only browser such as LYNX, you may miss them.
[Lady Lud Wygel] If thou click on the images, thou may get sounds, or end up anywhere!
[Lady TangylWyt] Please remember to use thy browser back key at any time to return to the immediate previous page.
[Silly Announcer] The background music for this page (Crescendo plugin expected) be "Ah Robin, gentle Robin" by William CORNYSH (dec. 1523).
[Babbel] Background music may be present for other pages and may be changed on whim of The Fooles.
[Robin] Thanks to my HD being hit during November 1997 1497 with a Stealth MBR virus (which got past my fairly up to date Viruscanning S/W), total loss of the system ensued. All work in progress, approx 4,000 URL links in progress, email contact details and S/W were lost. The Web pages as they then existed, were up on the ISP, and survived...
[Quibbel] ...verily, tis lucky we be up here on the Web at the time...

  See! We talk!See! We talk!  
   Pray make thyselves at ease...  
   Truly sorry, good fellow...  Nice Day, be it not?..  
 You be standing on my foot...    Verily it be so...
Just some of the Good Gentles gathered on The Cathedral Steps in Antir...

But the Fool doth oft abuse the Wisdom of the Wise..."

"Of all the money that e'er I've had,
I spent it in good company.
Of all the harm that e'er I've done,
At least it most was done to me.
Of all things done, for want of wit,
To memory now I can't recall."

Thou art an Honary Fool - one of many since Official Opening 1 Sept 1996 1496
not counting counter implosions which seemed to occur every other week or so.

Such as on 24/12/96 when there had already been at least over 500 visitors, and the counter then read zero...
Ah! Me!!! Will the counter never reach a Bignum?!!!
[Silly Announcer] The Counter did then read 1000 on 25/03/97, 1400 on 10/05/97 and 11 on 13/05/97, 6055 on 30/10/98, then 1 on 31/10/98... 6064 on 2/11/98...
[Battel] Verily, this saga may have to have its own page soon...
