Those who signed the tokezone guestbook

 

 

 


Well hello there! Brush the dust off a chair, sit down and take a moment to look at these crumbling archives. I was sure that this is where nobody would ever look, so I wonder how you found your way here. No hobbies to keep you amused in your spare time, or are you simply finding it hard to keep your mind off travel while you nibble away time at work?  As you can see when you read this, quite a few of my visitors had this same time problem. Shame...

 

Listen to the theme tune that played when you signed the guestbook

Even earlier entries from the former "MT Homepage"

The previous incarnation of this site, "the tokezone" was called the "MT Homepage". I began the site in the spring of 2000 just after a girlfriend moved out. I used Front Page Express and a steam-powered computer, I scanned some of my India slides and used a bit of clip art. It was very simple and some people liked it.

The host I chose was initially quite good. But then xoom.com was taken over by nbc, the banner advertising doubled, the page loading made even slower and even FTP access whittled down. Oh, and they sacked about half of xoom.com's employees as well.

I went to India and came back, having decided not to update the MT site. Then I began playing around with MS Front Page (the grownup version of Front Page Express, which still composed horrible html code) and got hooked again. What a waste of good hash, you might say. The computer got updated as well as the site. It is now entirely solar-powered. For my errors of using a Microsoft editor to compose the pages I am consigned to an endless cleanup of the html mess using Dreamweaver and hand edits).

Anyway, these are the splendid folk who visited the MT Website of antiquity and signed my guestbook there.

How did you find my site? informative !
What did you like? all of it, especially the pics and discussion of the south asian toilets.
What didnŽt you like? nothing; it was an informative site about travel and it was all (not just the toilet info) useful and sensible information.
Do you normally visit sites like this? more and more
Finish this: "If I were you IŽd..." write more !
Anything else you want to share... thank you for taking the time and making the effort to compose this website. especially, thanks for the toilet information, which none of the travel books/websites seem to discuss in detail but which, after all, is a rather important (if merely functional) area of information to have for americans who are used to a totally different method of "going to the bathroom". likewise about locking the doors: i had read about the bolts that lock cheap hotel doors, but i hadn't actually *seen* what one looked like, and i figured i would just have to wait till i got to india to see them. now i know what they look like, and hopefully i'll be able to avoid some embarassment and lost time and (for the doors) plan ahead. as they say, a picture speaks a thousand words. thanx again !
