A guide as to where all the various articles can be found within Hints and Things


Room Guide

As the site is continually being developed
(it now has nearly 1000 pages) it is not
possible to include all items featured in the various “rooms”.  The
information given below is  a general guide as to what can be found where.
If you cannot find a particular subject there is a “Search”
facility on every page.

We have split this site into various sections to try and help you find the
information you want easily.

We have decided to do this by using the rooms of a house – cunning eh! Here is a
brief guide to the contents of each room and the information available.

This site is run purely as a hobby and we would love any feedback you may have as
to how we can improve it or any information you would like to see here.

We will try and add whatever people want and would be happy to add your own pearls
of wisdom – so why not send them to us and we will credit you on
the site.
