El Horno

Over 10 years ago I decided I was going to make my own earthen oven, and decided to record the adventure online. The site, El Horno (whose name a friend asked me to change because she said it sounded like porn) was very, very popular and the first port of call for anyone looking to do the same. I recently found the files for the site, which I'd programmed myself on our Commodore Amiga using HTML, without a template, and realised that it would still be a great resource for anyone out there who wants to build their own oven outside, or at least dream about it. So I've uploaded the whole shebang, more or less as originally written, to Blogger. Check it out. (And I promise that this is the last time in a while that I'll post something that mentions my mother.)
