about mikeuk.com my website contains many photos that I have taken on my travels around the world. I enjoy travelling to new countries, experiencing new cultures, taking loads of photos as I go.

My first stab at web page design hit the web in November 1999, since when it has undergone a number of facelifts. Although I've been surfing the net since 1994, it was the idea to make some photos from ISS '99 available for friends that led me to use the webspace provided by my ISP.

In a moment of madness, I went dotcom in January 2000, spending my hard-earned on the mikeuk.com domain name. My website is currently powered by United Hosting.

As I've learnt more about CSS, HTML, Javascript, DHTML, PHP etc, so the 'look' of my site has changed to reflect my improving website design abilities. I've tried to keep the design simple, uncluttered, and quick to load.

These are the tools I've used to create mikeuk.com:
