About welshtroll (the site)

I’ve been running a website named welshtroll.co.uk since 2000 when I made my first attempt at proper website design. Needless to say it was limited but I learnt a lot of skills while attempting to add that 105th GIF to my gallery page.

In 2003/2004 I decided to try my hand at PHP and slowly built up my website using that language to add custom features, running the website was as much a learning experience as it was a blog. Between then and the end of 2006, there were numerous versions of welshtroll, each better than the last.

In 2007 welshtroll.co.uk returned, slightly more polished and with some ideas to drag it up-todate with new and interesting technologies.

In October 2008 I decided to move my blog over to the WordPress software. So far, so good.

As of Jan 2015 my hosting is now provided by another UK based firm TSOHost, who I’ve migrating my hosting and domain handling to.
