DIRECTORATE OF TELECOMMUNICATIONS
page 1 of 1
This web site has evolved from a long held personal wish to record some of the department's history before senility creeps in, or the lack of information from other sources dries up!
Following early retirement at the end of 2002, I was able to make a start on the project by sifting through a quantity of documents that I had gathered during my time with the Directorate and to devise a structure and level of content that I thought would be necessary to make the web site (i) as informative and accurate as possible and (ii) to serve as a long-term reminder of a once proud and professional organisation by recording its history and the people who worked there.
By October 2004 after completing a number of priority personal tasks, I commenced publication of the first phase of around 100 pages and thereafter the site grew rapidly in size and complexity to around 1,250 pages of written and scanned material, plus 222 images by the end of February 2005.
Following a break to get on with other projects at the end of May 2005, site updates commenced again in November 2005 for 6 months and are currently planned to continue through the winter until around Spring 2007 starting November 2006.
If you have comments, constructive criticism, questions or importantly web site contributions, I will do my best to respond accordingly.
