Coming Soon - a New FoSJP Website!

During February, this website will be replaced with a fresher-looking "content management" format, which should allow our various contributors to make direct updates.

Don't Panic! Most of the current content will be reappearing in the new format, and the website will be located at the same address, so there'll be no need to update your "favourite" links.

From the outgoing Website Manager - Thank You to everyone who's contributed to this website over the past 12 years, and to everyone who's taken time to read at least some of it - we hope you've found, and will continue to find in the new format, something of interest to you!
