about the site This online about was designed and written by lyndon thompson. It is not from a template and all the code was written by myself from scratch. It aims to be clear and readable, modern but not overly flashy. The site is designed to be mobile friendly but I expect most viewers to experience the site at higher resolutions so it isnt optimised especially for mobiles. I have purposely tried to avoid client side coding such as Javascript which may cause security alerts and the effects are achieved by CSS. The login system is for privacy reasons and is simple PHP server side code. It doesnt use cookies.
