Latest Breaking News - August 2006
Welcome to the E-Music DIY Archive!
After many years of hard work, Tony Clark is stepping down as curator of the E-Music DIY Archive. I ( Tom Arnold ) have volunteered to continue to host and update the site. In an attempt to make the site easier to update and maintain I am in the process of moving it into a Wiki. This is not the most aesthetically pleasing solution, but I do think it will be good in the long run.
I would personally like to thank Tony for the hard work he has done on the site all these years and I hope that I can live up to the precedent that has been set.
