Firstly a massive acknowledgement to all the thousands of people who I have had the pleasure of working with on the many projects featured on this website. A project is only the sum of all its parts, and I only wish I had the time and patience to give everyone the due credit they deserve. I thank you all.
And to all those countless people whose projects, images, photographs, etc I have used within this site, if you feel misrepresented, uncredited, etc, please let me know your grievances so I may hopefully rectify them. Many thanks.
