Amos the puffer

Welcome to the astounding.org.uk astounding web pages, hosted by Amos the mbu puffer fish.

This is Amos, he was a freshwater puffer fish, a member of the species Tetraodon mbu. We kept Amos from early 1996 to November 2001, when he died. There's more about him, in memoriam, on Ian's pages.

What's here?

Ian's pages are mostly about fish, radio control hovercraft computers and bicycles. The fish bits include Amos the puffer. The computery stuff has long-dead projects including a microprocessor controlled coffee roaster and more current 1wire on RaspberryPi stuff. The bicycle stuff includes finite element analysis of wheels and hub gear innards. His other big interest, bridges, has not been added yet. Jane's pages don't exist yet.

No pages by Rachel None by Laura either.

What are the pages optimised for?

Nothing, we hope. Ian's operating system of choice is Linux, and part of the philosophy of Linux is 'free' software. Free in this context does not mean without cost, it's more to do with freedom. Tying users to a proprietary standard by 'optimising' away their choice is a bad thing. We hope everything here complies with an HTML standard.

Aren't these pages under construction?

Of course they are, have you ever met a personal homepage that wasn't? We last made significant changes on 22 December, 2013, so if you've been here since then, you can probably go away again.
