I would like to take this opportunity to introduce my friend Mike Jones. Mike is an old friend and webmaster with bags of experience who will be helping me keep this site and a few other web-based things such as my Nextcloud instance up and running and in order from now on.
Mike and I have been friends for more years than I care to remember. I will be be creating the content for this site mainly by using a dictation to text tool but he will do most of the uploading and site care and maintenance.
This step in keeping this site live is necessary owing to continued failing of my health.
Mike can be contacted by using the contact form below.
At 11:37 on 02/06/2021 this website recorded its 100,000th visitor for 2021.
I wish to take this opportunity to thank all visitors for helping me to reach this milestone.
This equates to an average of 19,655 visits per month. In fact our highest monthly figure has been a sniff under 30,000. The lowest so far is just over 9,000. The average visit takes in an average of just over 5 pages every visit.
This website is targeted to receive 235,000 visits this year.
As promised previously The Trade House has now fully closed on time and on schedule. The database has been “locked” and is stored on a very secure server as was promised at the start of my retirement. The database’s only purpose now is to service any Subject Access Request Notices that may arise.
The firstname.lastname@example.org address is closed off and emails are now not responded too.
Various parts of The Trade House remain available for sale, this includes The Trade House Magazine.
All public Trade House content is now available in various areas of this website.
I am sorry to disappoint those who were expecting a more favourable update such as my returning to work! Alas this is definitely not possible. I do wish that this were not the case.
Any Trade House enquiries can be made by using the form below.
