In 1998 I was well primed about APPT thanks to the now sadly neglected and abused Newsgroup that Wayne Fancis had created
see my Newsgroup history web page at:-
I decided to try to check if I had indeed posted that link before so I did an advanced search
to find all posts that I had made that included the word "history"
I got 77 results at least one with the link I was seeking
but the rest include a fine variety of content including a few great images
such as the gordoscope/charoscope

and President Gord

all on A gord kaleidoscope at
Mende Joveski up on the Sydney "coathanger"
that I walked over albeit at road level just a year later

and in the thread about Gord's christmas album at
are these two creations the first by the irreppressible JJ

the latter is included my response reviewing Gord's planned Japanese album at
I was also very pleased to rediscover
AndyThompson's finely detailed treatise on how to make mono mp3s at
a great (even if inaccurate) tale about how Rick Haynes got his job with Gord (and changed his name) at:-
Interesting - Rick Haynes
i also enjoyed rereading catmanron's explanation of "stemming for gold"
and several fine embedded youtube videos including
Al Stewart in Stevenson, WA
"Sir" John Fowles Bt
Honorary Curator Bootleg Museum

(where Sir does not signify that I am a fully benighted Knight just a Bt which signifies a humble Baronet -?? read the wiki!)
I meant no one no harm
Once inside we found a curious moonbeam
