IMPORTANT NOTICE - Website now Closed :
It is with some sadness I have decided to close the MDS975 Website. It takes a great deal of time and effort to maintain a website so that it it remains
reasonably relevant - but there is no reward for all this endeavour. However, I have left some of the pages in place as an archive for reference purposes because, I am told, they are still useful.   There is now no traditional 'Home Page' and as many pages have been removed these will therefore produce dead links - so please navigate to the old Site Map to continue. (The Site Map has not been updated so please beware, it may now take you to some dead ends). www.mds975.co.uk - 25th July 2016
