Technical note: Seamus O’Connell would welcome advice on how to maintain this website. He wants to make two changes: remove the empty area down the right-hand side so that the body of the page goes right across the window, and remove the email posts and blog archive from the bottom of a page and have all the posts shown in a single page which can be accessed from a new menu item.
