Welcome to my home site. As you will gather from the content, it is mainly concerned with my interest in Bellringing. I've tried to make it quick and easy to use, and I hope you find it useful. If you have any comments or suggestions

I am the author of the Method Master computer program. This easy to use Windows program makes drawing method diagrams as simple as a couple of mouse clicks.

The latest version of Method Master is Method Master 3.3b, which has many new and updated features. It is also fully compatible with all versions of Windows including Vista, Windows 7, 8 and 10. The new version costs just £20 and existing users can upgrade for only £10.

The Method Master method library is updated weekly and contains over 19,000 methods. The latest version is available from the menu on the left of this page.

My apologies for the lack of updates from Feb 2017 to June 2017. This has now been fixed.

Instead of tying the clapper of a bell when teaching bell handling, I use a clapper stay. This is quick and easy to fit, and very simple to make.

Depending on how the accounts on your PC have been set up, it is possible that the registration details are lost when you exit Method Master and it reverts to Shareware mode. If you have this problem, run Method Master by right clicking on the icon and selecting 'Run as Administrator' from the pop-up menu. Enter your registration details and then close the program. The Registration details will now be saved and Method Master can be run in the usual way from now on.

The lastest version of Method Master runs on all versions of Windows from 95 to Windows 10. However, later versions of Windows (Vista, Windows 7, 8 and 10) changed the way programs are installed and run. This change stops versions of Method Master prior to 3.3 from installing and working correctly.

Method Master versions 3.1 and 3.2 will work with Vista (but not Windows 7, 8 or 10), but need installing in a special way.
