Welcome to my Website
This website has taken a number of forms since it first launched on 15th September 1997. Its crowning highlight was probably being featured ironically on TV, on Channel 5 in 1999. Now well into its 11th year online, its had a bit of a crash diet and all pages that haven't been updated for a long, long time rather than being dusted off have been removed. Various internet archive sites probably still have traces of them somewhere... Thank you for visiting.

So what is there on here?
One thing that might be of interest are my Research Paper on Kohonen Network's - what are they and how they work. Its a bit out of date and things have been advanced since I wrote it but it's always worth a look.

Another page kept because wikipedia links to it - its my brief research into the orgins of the phrase: What the Sam Hill...?
