BTI has re-launched its website to compete with Itll be advertised in the next BTI but get the exclusive lowdown by accessing Peter Lumleys site today (

BTI goes online (again)

There are some regularly updated news stories, a funny drum beat for those PCs that can access sound files, and some groovy wavy text that wibble-wobbles across the screen.

Parts of the site require passwords but theres not a lot in the trade only slots at the moment with all of the trade news being accessible to the public too. It would be unfair to give out the passwords so please email

If you want to download a PDF of printed pages of BTI, this is the site for you. Dont expect any outside commet though because on pretty much every page of his website Peter makes it clear he hates our bulletin board!

There is no Bulletin Board on this site, writes Lumley.. Why is that?..In general terms a Bulletin Board is open to use by all and sundry…Rumour, scandal, silliness, lewd comments this is the stuff of public toilet walls.
