Transcriptors Hydrulic Reference turntable
at least that's what it used to be called
when I bought mine in the seventies...
picture gallery

a remarkable
history from a family member..
My father Mr David Gammon ran Transcriptors Ltd From 1963-1981.He design The Hydraulic Reference Turntable/The Saturn Turntable/The Round Table/The Skeleton/and The Transcriber.My father employed J A Mitchell as a jobber,doing various jobe for my father.When my father move Transcriptors from England to Ireland in 1973,he gave J AMitchell the rights to manufacture the Hydraulic Reference.To this very day Mr J Mitchell has not payed my father.We then move to America in 1974 where we sold the Skeleton in thousands.J A Mitchell has never designed any of the turntables which my father designed.Also the rounded feet were the first as my father had designed them,the so called 'bull horns' came later when my father gave J A Mitchell permission to manufacture the Reference.Also in a few months i will be getting Transcriptors up and running to provide Service/Spares/and repairs for the above turntables.If you would like to know more about Transcriptors then please drop me a line as my father is still alive and well.

Includes Code
Just had a go at this
The procedure you describe to include multiple blogs on one page will work only for users with access to a server that supports either CGI, PHP or ASP, or SSI. However, more or less the same effect can be achieved easily by using iframe's - or preferably the [object] tag (the W3C deprecated IFRAME in (X)HTML Strict and it will be removed from future versions).

Instead of the usual stuff, just add the following markup:



(Optionally, add some "width" and "height" attributes etc.)

On the downside: multiple blogs built in this way *will* need body tags, style sheets etc., since these are not inherited from the main page, so the stripped down templates you suggest won't do here. On the upside: this allows for a lot of flexibility. You can use different designs for each 'subblog'.

For your information, I've created a very simple (and still rather ugly - due to some CSS errors I'm to lazy to fix right now) example at sample
