Site and Page Update History


January 12th 2003
Pirate Sounds - fantastic Sixties sounds from offshore pirate radio stations,
particularly Swinging Radio England.

January 24th 2003
The Market Place - I get lots of letters asking where various Sixties items
can be bought. There is now a page of links to online suppliers of original
and retro Sixties items.

Currently working on a listing for the Top20 pop charts for every week during
the Sixties. If you want to know what was in the charts on your birthday or
on an anniversary this will give you the chance to check it out. It's going to
take a while though - I expect to be able to upload a new year every 2 or 3
weeks as well as small updates to other areas of the site.

February 23rd 2003
Have to admit I've fallen behind with the Top 20. 1960 has now been uploaded.
Also, a complete new front page, menu and search system which I hope will
be useful to you. Loads of small updates have been done as well. Another
new page is the 'marketplace' which is a resource for you to be able to find
Sixties items that you often e-mail me about. I will also be adding a web
resources section to this so that you can take advantage of the same services
which have provided so well for me over the years.

March 3rd 2003
Some minor corrections, new links and additional images in the 'pop' movies section

May 1st 2003
The site has enjoyed highly increased popularity recently which has had the effect
of causing bandwidth problems. In order to try and reduce these, many files have
been moved to new locations. If you have visited recently and have problems with
viewing some pages, please click on the refresh icon on your explorer toolbar.
This should reload the page with the latest links. I have also had to remove the
automatic play on the midi files from the pages for the same reason, but I will be
making these available again for you to listen to separately in the near future.


June 9th/16th 2003
We've had a few hardware problems over recent weeks but, having thrown a lot of
money at it, we're now updating and adding again. Next main items will be completion
of the weekly Charts and new and regularly updated quizzes as a lot of you have requested.
I've added a lot of Amazon links to the pages in the hope of raising a bit of capital to
support the cost of keeping the site up - these are mostly linked to relevant Sixties items of
interest but you can also see their whole product range from any area. New links and
some corrections were made on the 16th June


June 27th 2003
Many pages redesigned and reloaded with additional links, repairs and improved
access. First new quiz completed - more will be appearing very soon,
followed by completion of weekly chart pages. New Mod dances added to listing.

in waiting for a reply.
Keep them coming!

 

Linking To and From This Site

 

 


Please don't link directly to individual images on this site. They change occasionally and you will find yourself with dead links. If you want to use any of them, feel free, but please read my notes regarding copyright before using them on your own pages.

If you have a relevant site that you think I might like to put a link to please let me know by e-mail, I'd
like to see it. Any aspect of the Sixties is of interest, no matter how small.

If you care to put a link to my site on your pages, huge thanks, but
please link to the main title page
rather than individual sections. It would also be nice if you would e-mail me to let me know.

The link address is now:
http://www.sixtiescity.com/index.htm

 


Link Logos and Images

 


Here are some link logos for the site if you want to use them. If you prefer the alternative logos appearing on any of the pages, please feel free to 'lift' and use them instead. If you need to resize them for use on your pages and can't achieve decent quality, please ask me for another version.

Viewing
Resolution

 


Sixties City pages are best viewed at 800 x 600 in IE5+ due to the nature of the page construction.
Several different editors were involved, not all with cross-browser capability. At the moment, 800
resolution is very common so I will continue to construct mainly for that format but I am slowly changing
the pages for more universal viewing and a lot of the images appear even better at 1200 resolution.
Some images are compressed jpeg or gif with the consequent loss of quality
. More recent jpeg images
have been loaded in uncompressed format which provides better quality screen reproduction but, unfortunately, take a little longer to load
- c'est la vie - doin' the best I can!

 


Content Accuracy and Advertising Banners

 

 

Amazon links are provided throughout the site. If you purchase items from Amazon through these links I receive a small percentage of the sale which helps to pay for the bandwidth needed to keep this site operational. Some sixties-related items available from Amazon are featured in various places on the site but, of course, you also have fuul access to current chart items, videos, books and many other terrific items which Amazon has to offer. If you use Amazon regularly, please use the link-through from this site when you buy - then we both get a good deal!

The web service advertising banners appearing on Sixties City are provided by the companies whose services I use in the presentation of this site. Their services are provided to me free of charge and it is right that I should promote their services in return. I receive no income or profit for their promotion, but I have experienced nothing but excellent service from all of them and highly recommend them to you if you are starting, or want to improve, your own web pages or site. They are well worth considering.
Internet Hosting Services, Domain Names and Free Webspace are provided by Velnet


This site has taken me over five years to construct and a lot of that time has been spent on research. I've done my best to make sure the facts are correct but I can't accept any responsibility for consequences due to errors that might exist in any of the information appearing on these pages.
If you do notice any checkable inaccuracies I would appreciate it if you would let me know.

 


Copyrights

 

 


I retain the copyright for ALL ORIGINAL text and graphics on these pages. If you want to reproduce any of it by whatever means, please ask. I'll probably say yes - but it would be nice to know where it is going!

I have very little information regarding copyright contacts for pictures appearing here - I have seen most of them in various locations with no copyright contact information. I am using them to illustrate the articles purely for interest and fan purposes, but if I have upset anyone through their use, please advise me and
I will either remove them or be only too pleased to give credit to the copyright owner if that is acceptable.

The same offer applies to sound files, particularly
midi file authors, with whose work I am totally impressed. Registered names and logos also remain the copyright of the particular owners. Again, I only reproduce them for interest purposes and the same condition applies.

To anyone who does hold copyrights on any of these and lets them stay on here, a very big
THANK YOU!
I would also like to pay tribute to the authors of the many books and web sites I have looked at while putting this together as I can now appreciate, even if only to a small extent, the amount of work involved.

I hope you find the pages interesting, informative and, most of all, fun!
