21 December - Goodmans have lost another KoTNs. Tomorrow will be Simon Barker's last day as he is leaving for the smart card company Gemplus. Seems like only yesterday Tony Wilson left to then return!
02 December - Won't need this again!
07 October - If you read the credits for that wonderful film "The Commitments" you'll discover the "Avant-Garde-A Clue Band".
03 September - Almost completed loading users' cali files. Just October and September to go.
26 June - Dob Diggins died this weekend. He was a pleasant old boy who had lived in Station Terrace for some fifty years. We often had a chat with him over the fence as he took a stroll up the terrace followed by his tabby cat Thomas. May he rest in peace.
25 May '00 - Last Tuesday a select group from NaTCH saw Peter Green and John Mayall in Cambridge. This has prompted us to create a Rock Links section.
18 April - There's a new page explaining more fully what the InTNaT crossover test interface does.
05 April - Australian IT have shut their Y2K page and the New Zealand government are about to shut theirs. All seems so long ago, eh?
09 March '00 - Sorry but we've been messing about with the web structure again. Various NaTKiT1 things have been moved into the new sub-section Support in anticipation of NClean being available soon.
11 February - Maplin have given us Lisa, our own Essex girl, so they can be personally offhand. How thoughtful.
26 January '00 - The data file "nk_prod.dbf" generated by NaTKiT1 contains production reporting info and can get inconveniently large. If historical data is not needed then a simple fix is to delete it. Next time NaTKiT1 is run it will generate a new and empty file.
To simplify the process we've written NClean which tidies up for you. NClean is being beta tested and will soon be available in Support.
20 January '00 - Ex-Lord NaTCH boss Arthur Brown, he of the Crazy World, is on tv (Channel 4) 9pm Saturday night in a prog about one hit wonders. We've seen a trailer and he takes his hat off, which is more than he did last time we saw him. Ah well it happens to us all - James Taylor, Lord NaTCH, that drummer out the Hollies. :)
04 January '00 - Still no problems reported for NaTKiT.
02 January '00 - No problems reported for NaTKiT so far. But then we suspect nothing will really start up again till tomorrow.
12:20am 01 January '00 - We've still got power, gas, water and the 'phones so it looks pretty good here. (A scanner has started to play up but Y2K? Probably not.)
