Introduction
A site used by me to experiment (and play!) with web technologies on a LAMP system (Linux + Apache + MySQL + Perl/PHP), via a firewall (netfilter-iptables). I use it also to indulge a passion for skiing and inform friends of events... holidays, walks and drinks.
Scripted in xhtml 1.0 and frames based, this site requires JavaScript and CSS2, and has been tested with Internet Explorer 11.0 and Firefox 25.0. QuickTime and MediaPlayer equivalent plugins are needed for virtual reality panoramas and videos.
Reset the Main Frames. is provided on each page to restore its navigation frames or display its parent window in full.
