From the Garden of Kent to the Garden Isle
INVECTIS is the new host domain for my web sites. The name is derived from INVICTA which is Roman for Kent and VECTIS, Roman for the Isle of Wight. Most of my websites are about locations between these English counties. The new host is situated on a main UK internet 'backbone' which should ensure fast internet access. email dave
