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.

No Brits For Craig David
24 February 2001 | 0:00:00 GMT/UTC

It has been reported by The Sun newspaper that Craig David will not be receiving any Brit Awards on Monday (26 February 2001). He has been nominated in six categories: Best British Album, Best British Dance Act, Best British Male Solo Artist, Best British Newcomer, Best British Video and Best British Dance Act.

Before the news he had told The Sun, "I'm really looking forward to the ceremony. Even if I don't get one award I'll just be honoured that I've been nominated...There would probably be some disappointment because I've been nominated for so many."

Craig has been offered a special award to recognise the success of his debut album Born To Do It but he will probably refuse.
