CROESO!
WELCOME TO
OUR WEB-SITE

A warm welcome to those of you visiting our site for the first time.
And, to those of you who are returning for another visit, welcome back.
"'Tis true; there's magic in the web ..." (Shakespeare: Othello)

If you haven't visited us lately, you may notice that we have extensively updated the content of our website and hopefully improved the way you can navigate around it. We hope that, after viewing it, you will have:

We also hope that you like what you see on these pages. To accomodate the widest range of browsers, the site originally avoided fancy features. "Web standards" now exist to guide accessibility and cross-browser issues, so these pages will gradually move towards greater standards-compliance - but rest assured, we aren't planning big changes. You may not even notice most of them, but the site should become more reliable and easier for us to maintain.

In the meantime, since we try to satisfy the needs of all our members, here are two animated images for those who like them:
