Strange Ontario?

I bought the domain Strange Ontario.com and I may move this site and other content over there. I am not finding an easy way to post/host all my photos online. Part of the problem being image size and the other image theft. One makes everything load really slowly, or not at all. The other means someone else is taking credit for and possibly selling my photos. Both, are frustrating. Plus, I’m just not feeling the enthusiasm I used to have for running/ producing sites. I think it is temporary. Now and then I miss it or get a great idea, things just seem to end up fizzling.

Maybe (another) fresh start will help. Without the stuff I’ve already tried to fix and patch and throw together.

Alex Omanski Posts About the History of Underground Ontario – Mines and Caves

First, I found his site, Ontario Exploration 101, via the Curlie listing which had come up as a broken link to check. The link works, if you go past the web browser warnings of gloom and doom. People may miss all his posts because they start from the navigation bar, under the word “more…”. Not the navigation people are used to. At first the site appears to be a one page wonder. Once you hit upon the content, there is a LOT of it. Mostly about abandoned mines in Ontario.


I found more. There is a gallery of his images and more written content at mindat.org. There is a network people can join, a Mining Database.

I don’t know why the web browser (Firefox) is warning people away from his site. It would take days to read everything there. I hope it is all saved somewhere. Sites, personal projects like this, tend to disappear one day without notice. Abandoned and then lost.
