ommited are:

1. A very obsolete article about legal music download websites.

2. Lee Brady's excellent article on Embryo does not seem to be on the web archive. BAH! It was really good, trust me.

3.An article on the Huddersfield Festival of Light which was little more than a bunch of poorly-taken photos

4.A review of a single by !!! which I think was the first review I ever did on the site. If memory serves, I took it down after a year or two for no particularly good reason. Internet Archive did not capture it.
