Links section revamp

There might not seem to be much going on at downthetubes — but you’d be wrong. It’s all “under the bonnet” stuff though — tidying up images folders, a revised links section which hopefully makes more sense to visitors.

The image folder changes were brought on by increasing “bandwidth theft” problems that I hope I’ve solved with a few technical tweaks to stop direct links to images on my site. I don’t like doing this — but it was starting to cost me money.

On the writing front, there’s a cartoon project that looks as though it may finally see a wider audience after three years of writing it, with Nick Miller on the art chores. Fingers crossed…
