I receive info, help and general insanity from a variety of wonderful people, so I thought it was time I recorded their names properly. If I've forgotten you, don't kill me - just email! It's not deliberate... :-)

Hi! I'm Jongleur. I juggle, I program websites, I watch anime and I obsess about jesters. I live in the UK, and since I left Oxford I work for an investment bank, which means I have even less time to spend on this site than I used to. Feel free to drop me an email if you have any questions/complaints/compliments (particularly compliments)... but please don't be offended if it takes me a while to reply.
