It's happened. Google ads have appeared on the site; I'm sure you know how they work. I have not taken this step lightly, but I have been supporting this site with my own resources for ten years now, and traffic does keep increasing.
I appealed for comments as to whether ads would be appropriate, and every single respondent said they were happy with the idea, so there it is. I am starting in a small way but ads will be, well, added, as time permits; I hope you will not find them intrusive.
The acute observer will have noted that updates stopped for a while (due to holidays) but have been resumed with full vigor, and indeed, vigour. On my travels I paid a visit to CNAM, the Conservatoire National des Arts et Metiers in Paris. This is a wonderful science museum of the good old-fashioned kind, and I found many goodies, which are now starting to appear in the Museum of Retrotechnology. Please don't get your hopes too high about image quality, though. Flash photography is not allowed so what with handheld available-light stuff and the reflections from glass cases, it's uphill work.
And yes, there is still stacks of stuff waiting to go into the Museum as time allows.
An email from Sander Jetten of Nijmegen, Holland:
"Just mailing to let you know you're a Googlewhack.
Type "dynosphere impracticability" in Google and the only hit is your museum
A Googlewhack is a phrase you type into Google that returbs one, and only one, hit. That email was sent in July 07 and remains true as of 19 Oct 07.
