What’s new as of
Work in Progress
Note that the menu
buttons on the left of this page have been enlarged.
There are five other menus undergoing the same
treatment. The larger buttons will be useful to
those with diminished eyesight. It will also make
the menus much easier to read on mobile phones.
Until this process is complete, some menus will have
a mixture of the small and large sizes.
For the best visual
experience, put your browser in full-screen mode (as
enabled and disabled by pressing F11). This way, you
maximize the viewing area and are not distracted by
the clutter at the top of the screen. Please note
that this is not the same as the full-screen mode
available for some of the photographs. In that case,
only the photographs are enlarged and shown without
other page content. They simply look even better
(and can use more vertical space) if the browser is
in its own full-screen mode.
For experienced users
of smart phones and other touch-sensitive devices
(e.g., tablet computers), navigation of this site
is very easy. It has been tested with Android 2.3.7,
4.4.2 and 5.1.1, using the default browser (with
5.1.1 defaulting to Android Chrome) in all cases.
Friends of your Webmaster who have iPhones have
encountered no problems.
A Little History
The first year's site hosting and domain name
registration fee were jointly donated by David Fowler
and Bill Potts. Ongoing fees are now paid by the Old Scarborians
Association (with some exceptions when they were covered
either by Revan Tranter or by Bill Potts [including 2016
and 2017]). Original concept and design by David Fowler
(now doing business as
Farthings Publishing). Design, site maintenance and site enhancements
since 2000 by Bill Potts, Sacramento, CA, USA.
