This is an ‘html-only’ version of Scribblings with no database behind it. This means it is not possible to search it. I am working on a new version with which I am hoping to eventually put back into the main site. The new version is here but please note that there is no link directly back to the main site.

It was twenty years ago today

Today marks twenty years since the IRA blew up the Grand Hotel in Brighton during the Conservative Party conference. While not condoning such acts1 I am reminded of the first thought which came into my head when I heard the news in the morning. It was ‘Did they get her?’. Since then I’ve asked many people for their first thoughts at the time. The odd thing is that probably the majority of them thought exactly the same thing.

1 I never have understood how killing people can further your cause. It may get your point across but all it usually does is cause revulsion in most people making them question your cause.

An apology

Since moving the site to a new server Scribblings is not as easy to find your way around as it used to be. It used to depend on a script and a database on the server but is currently served as ‘flat html’.

I have some ideas about how to make it a bit easier but they depend on writing another script. I hope to get around to it ‘eventually’.
