23/12/2012 Introduced dynamic titles and description mostly to keep google happy, tidied bits and pieces up

14/12/2012 Seem to have managed to get some sort of desktop/mobile site switching going, not tested properly but looks the best I can do without extensive file duplication or the use of client scripts like javascript

12/12/2012 Tried to implement a method of access for mobiles, its too much hassle so I will have a think if there is a tidy way

25/11/2012 Cleared up most of little bugs and restructured some of the vba code

24/11/2012 Created the structures generator, a couple of very minor bugs but basically working so we now have roads and structures - yay!

21/11/2012 Not much changed, I've been tidying up some of the background code to make it more flexible for the next phases

18/11/2012 Finished all of the first round of automation/code generators, makes it a lot easier to change things. Thrown a few more images up under "roads". Might have a go at a bit of cross-indexing next - or maybe not.

16/11/2012 Getting there, put 40 pictures up in roads and finding a few bugs to iron out

14/11/2012 Coding for the roads generator underway and sample put online
