Donations / Web Design

It is now over 18 years since the first version of "English Electric Growl" appeared on the web and I had little idea at the time of how big the project would become or how much time and money it would take to design, host and publish the site. In that time the site expanded until the running costs became so much, that I either had to pull the plug, or reduce the size of information available to visitors. A decision was made to streamline the site by reducing the amount of space it took up, but keeping it on the web. An appeal was made for donations to help cover these costs, but none were received, directly or via the offer to design websites in return.
