These pages where built on an Amiga 1200 running the default Workbench v1.3 text editor and Deluxe Paint 4 with a 19.2kbps direct serial connection to the Internet via my university in Kent. This was considered a high speed connection in the days when 14.4 modems where standard. ;) The main site was hosted by a company called Virtual PC based in the UK with the jingles hosted on a Finnish ISP called Netsonic. The original URL was http://www.virtual-pc.com/timo/home/nick/
The current site is at http://www.nickabbot.info

|I've been meaning to do something with this page for a while now. I've actually started doing something with it at long last! So here it is, my *unofficial* Nick Abbot page...|

|Classic clips from past Nick Abbot shows on Virgin:|
Nick [to Clint]: What's the deal with this computer?
Now I can't get into
this computer. What's going on with this?
"Nick's Bits"Here are few more classic clips as typed up by Trevor (not Trevor) for the alt.radio.uk.talk-radio newsgroup. Special thanks to the guy with the strange name for letting me use them here.
Nick: Tomorrow I'm going to put like the best of the year on tape.

|A few of Nick's old jingles can
be downloaded here. These were made by fans of his show. The
third one is easily my fave. So download them now! (Fast-ish modem recommended)
