DISASTER SITE

I'm not sure how many of you have noticed but, as well as keeping the old blog on the go, I've recently been busily tinkering around on another blog-spot where I've revamped my old website, www.briansibley.com.

It's not (as several of you who've already visited have told me) as elegant or easily negotiated as my old site, but it does make it a lot easier to keep up to date and to be able to post breaking news - should I be lucky enough to have any!

When the new site first went live, my good friend Irascible Ian who had built the original, took good-natured revenge by sending me a message to say that my website was under attack! And, following the link to my site, I saw all my hard work seemingly crumbling beneath a barrage of crashing zeppelins and the music of - yes - Led Zeppelin...



Total paranoia!

Being a bear of very little brain, it took me several hours to discover that it was a just a hoax perpetrated through the evil geniuses at...


For the feeble-minded, such as myself, Netdisaster's disasters are alarming and panic-inducing... As a piece of technological wizardry - playing havoc with the imagery on your website without any lasting damage - they are utterly and maliciously brilliant!

Now and again, whenever time needs wasting, I'll amuse myself by having www.briansibley.com zapped by Martians...


Bombarded by meteorites...


And nuked by warheads...


Sometimes I throw coffee over it...


Pelt it with custard pies...


Chuck tomatoes at it...


Or fry a few eggs on it...


My website has been flooded...


Overgrown by bouquets of flower-power...


Marched over by militant protesters...


And stomped on by dinosaurs...


To amuse yourself - or to terrorize friends and foes - with these and other animated disasters go to Netdisaster and do your worst!!

And don't forget to visit the disaster-free www.briansibley.com and let me know what you think...

It's content (not looks) that's important, and both THE WORKS and your blog have that in spades. Nice job!
