I built and ran this website between 2000 and 2001, combining passion for popular music and programming. It was listed by MTV's now defunct MusicNewswire as one of the then nascent web's top twenty sources, alongside Billboard and VH1. The most exciting part of it — for a 13/14-year-old excited by new music — was receiving scores of pre-release CDs from record companies. The entire project was written entirely from scratch (frameworks and libraries were not the norm back then!) in PHP linking to a MySQL database, with HTML as well as a little CSS and JavaScript for the frontend; the code is available here.

John Lennon's Childhood Home Up For Sale
10 June 2001 | 0:00:00 GMT/UTC

The house in Liverpool where Lennon lived with his aunt for eighteen years is up for saleThe house in Liverpool where John Lennon lived with his 'Aunt Mimi' between 1946 and 1963 is up for sale for the first time in thirty years.

The property has been valued at £150,000 but is expected to fetch up to £300,000.

It is being sold after the death of the current owner Ernest Burkey, whose son told The Sunday Mirror, "We'll advertise it on the internet. There are a lot of fans in Japan and America who are incredibly passionate about John Lennon."

The National Trust says it has no plans to add the property to its collection, even though it currently owns Paul McCartney's family home.
