They say old British rock bands never die, they just have endless come back
tours.

google and ikite). Sorry I fthis is the third time you have all got this>

They say old British rock bands never die, they just have endless come back
tours.

The same is true for websites .. at least for kHiTe. For those who (don't)
remember kHiTe was a vaguely interesting UK freestyle site that I knocked up
with Homestead about 3 years ago. At one point it even got "Quite Good" I
seem to recall someone saying ...

http://SportToday.org/ is back (and Homestead Free), with most of its old
review content, and its classic old school design. Looks nice in Mozilla,
I'm sure IE can handle it too. Any problems on other platforms drop us a
line. I haven't cycled to the nearest Mac or linux box yet!

I have a brace of kites I have flown over the last 18 months I want to
review (MiniGem, DotMatrix, DarksideVent etc.) and I will be back on the
scrounge at festivals for an afternoon with some poor persons kite ... I am
also looking for people to have banners on the site ... worthy causes only
... :o). That reminds me .. anyone with an opinion out there about freestyle
i've made some space for that too ...  thought as much !

So for those who are interested ... the story of my life ...

A year or so ago I knocked kHiTe on the head, mainly because I was giving up
my job and doing stuff. I think regular #kites peeps will remember that.

I used kHiTe for "*** work" ... what I was actually doing was seeking
ordination in the Anglican Church. kHiTe became a sort of back up plan type
thing for my more creative activities (I learnt HTML and Flash). Now I have
been recommended for training in the ministry I don't need to pretend I have
a water tight back up plan any more ... I have also been flying a lot more,
and as it is something I am "Quite Good" at  I am having great fun.

So kHiTe is back for good.

I am happy.

Thanks boss.

Can't quite compete with Aerialis for editorial ... but hope to specialise
on the Review side of things.

You are welcome to direct as many people as possible to kHiTe ... :o) ... I
have already put a link in to the best Front Door to kiting on the net!

Thought it would. There are some Opera issues, but there are ALWAYS Opera
issues!

Hi Ed

You might want to check out this line for the e-mail link:
<h3 align="center"><a href="file:///C|/WINDOWS/Desktop">Email</a></h3>

I like the little Flash bit, it sounds like something out of Myst.

BTW, would you e-mail me with John Taylor's e-mail addy?

Cheers
James
