I know the site has not been updated for quite some time now. I have spent time on other projects but will be adding more soon.
I was suffering from a fatal storage buffer overflow fault (otherwise known as 'junk collecting'), it has taken me a long time to instal a new storage device that should solve my overflow problem and will also allow easier random access of the contents, I have deleted any content that had not been accessed for a long time and have put some in stort term storage and this will be made available to other collectors. The new device is known as a 'loft' and is now fully boarded out with shelves and units.
More contents will be catalogued soon, I promise. Thanks for keep coming back.

Request for Help:
The listings are taking too long to type in and will not reliably go through my OCR software.
Are there any volunteers who can either type them in or OCR them for me?
Even if you do not want to do the large listings some help with the smaller ones would be great.
If you can help please get in contact with me.
I can supply scans of listings in TIFF for OCR or JPEG for typing.

Please note: The site is now hosted on Tiscali webspace. http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/themicrouser/

I was running out of space on Freeserve but I may use some of the old web space for part of the site in the future.
