What’s New?


What’s New is where you will important announcement, updates and new pages or articles involving Timeless Myths. I have ordered it so that the latest is at the top.

Important News!!!

Finally, I have bought myself a domain name for Timeless Myths. You will find Timeless Myths at this address – https://www.timelessmyths.com/.

This should make it easy for me to organise my website, should I change server in the future.

So remember to put a new BOOKMARK (for Netscape) or FAVORITE (for Internet Explorer) in the browser you use.

Also the 4 main branches of Timeless Myths has been moved to 4 separate directories.

I would like to apologise if it cause you any inconvenience.
