Cool links
I have included some handy links for downloading free programs off the net.  All these sites have been trialed and found to work and also be useful.  All these sites are good and worth checking out.  A variety of topics that are all useful to some degree.  Your help with this section is important if you find any links that are wrong or other problems with this section please let me know.  I have tried to create a good section and while I constantly test out the material I can only do so much and changed sites etc. may take a while to notice but if you let me know I can fix it straight away.  Thanks.
Due to the growth of this section it has been moved to another site that I have linked to this site.  Scroll up to "My Other Web Pages" and click on "Cool Links" to be taken to the related web page.  I think you will agree the effort is well worth it.  A note you can use the index links on this page to get to the "My Other Web Pages" section quickly and easily.   Enjoy...

Want Free Web Space?
There are many places that will give free web space to non business orientated activities.  You can get a certain amount of free web space and buy more if you need it but tripod gives 11 megs of space more than enough to create a good site.

Earthen's Chat
This chat room is open for general chatting just keep the conversation in the main room on an acceptable level.  Remember your conversation may inadvertently be viewed by others.  There is a private function and an ignore function just highlight the nick in the user list and then tick the appropriate box for ignore or private functions just type /chat for this and other more helpful features.  You can also create private rooms in parachat chat adding extra privacy and a venue for more secure chats just type /chat for more info.  Due to the relative infancy of this site there may not be many chatters here at present but be patient and encourage others to visit.  I am doing my best to promote the site but it does take time.  Happy Chatting.

Sorry, your browser doesn't support Java you will not be able to chat. 
Note: If you want to include a chat room on your home page you can get them from parachat for free just go to http://www.parachat.com and get it from there.  You will need a valid email address though because they email you the code to include on your site.  There are also good chat rooms there usually full of other chatters just like you and me so maybe you can check it out sometime.

Contact Me
There are lots of ways to contact me. Email is probably the easiest and fastest but you can contact me on ICQ as well 17734152 (Earthen_) or on IRC using dal.net  If you click on IRC details and edite the IRC server to match the details in the display or choose a random US dal.net connection.  Then you can either message me through a normal message or through memoserv.  Another way to get hold of me is to maybe catch me on IRC while I am in a channel I always log into channel Earthen and use the nick Earthen so I am easy to find when your on the right server and of course while I am on IRC.  Feel free to contact me anytime.
My IRC setup I use the nick Earthen
