Andrew's Corner of the Web

This site was initially established in June 2006 and has run continuously since then, with a brief hiatus from the end of 2013 to the beginning of 2014. The site is designed to function as a Mathom-house, or storage area for some of the work I undertake and for some resources for my areas of interest. A Mathom-house is a creation of J.R.R. Tolkien and was described in Tolkien's Prologue to the Lord of the Rings:

"So, though there was still some store of weapons in the Shire, these were mostly used as trophies, hanging above hearths or on walls, or gathered into the museum at Michel Delving. The Mathom-house it was called; for anything that Hobbits had no immediate use for, but were unwilling to throw away, they called a mathom."

The site will never be more than 40 or so pages in size and will be updated when I have time to spare from my "real life". Some pages are more mathoms than others on this site but if you find any information that is of benefit to you I perhaps have accomplished a not insignificant thing...

Contents of the Site

I am currently restructuring this site, bringing some older pages back, editing some others, culling more than few others and also bringing in some new sections with a new focus on literature, HTML creation and Yoga. My apologies if a page you are after does not appear on this list:

About This Site

This site is hand-built on a home-built Threadripper 2950X system running Fluxbox 1.3.7 on Slackware -current, typed up with Geany and synchronised with a US Dreamhost server using rsync. I will always welcome help with these hosting bills and thanks to the many people who have helped out with these bills with both large and small donations!!

I update the site when I am able and I have something interesting to add, a combination of events that I confess only occurs from time to time! For those who are interested in such things my PGP Public Key is here. Hopefully you will find something of use in this web site, if not I hope you have a great day anyway :).
