Due to primarily to cuts in the Defence Budget, With MacDuff on the Web will cease to exist on or about Sept 2nd. 2011.
It has moved hosts about 3 times but has been around since about 1997, in the days of dial up modems, scanners for printed photos, rgmh and onelist email groups - the predecessor to yahoo.
1 or 2 bits have been grafted into my blog but the rest is being consigned to oblivion (and back up files).
Also anyone still having my old firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com email addresses, please delete them. My only valid email address at this time is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Anyway, everyone is welcome to have a last troll through.
EXERT FROM APPENDIX 1 from Don Featherstone's Battles With Model Soldiers
(The book that got me started.)
"Nothing in these pages is a dictate, no word says you must or you shall do it this way. On the contrary, the book sets out from the very beginning to stimulate the reader to think for himself, and to use what he has read merely as a foundation for efforts and ideas which reflect his own temperament and character. Only in this way will he obtain maximum satisfaction from the hobby of battling with model soldiers."

MacDuff Retires from the Web
Born and raised in the suburbs of Montreal, 5 years in the Black Watch of Canada Cadets, 5 years at the Collège militaire royal de Saint-Jean followed by 4 in the navy. 25 years with CPC in IT simultaneous with 23 years running a boarding kennel. Inherited my love of toy soldiers from my mother's father. Married with a Whippet, 10 Italian Greyhounds, 4 cats and a bird. Prematurely retired and looking forward to leisure to game, garden and sculpt in our 150 yr old farmhouse.
