General information

What is this website about?

Read about this site.

Who made this website?

The Crawfurd Homepage is designed, edited and maintained by Jacob Crawfurd. I am an almost normal guy living in Denmark. I work with webdesign, multimedia- and videoproduction among other things. This site is my playground/testsite for trying out new ideas. I also use the site as a gallery for my photographs and a base for my interest in African history and culture. See also my other site: the Pink Floyd HyperBase

How do I contact the webmaster?

You can send me an e-mail by using the form on the Contact page. Please allow a few days for me to answer. If you send a normal e-mail always supply a suitable subjectline. Don't send me attachments without prior arrangement. I receive a lot of spam and any strange looking e-mail goes directly in the trash. If you don't receive an answer, your mail has probably been deleted by error. Please, try again.

If it is not neccesary for me to answer your mail, then please consider adding your comment to the guestbook instead.
