Ongytenes Home Page

Someone once asked me what Ongytenes means.  It is Old English for knowledge.
That is what this site is about. I have always enjoyed teaching others.  So as a hobby,
I have set this site up to share knowledge with others.  I feel that to hoard knowledge is
wrong and to pass it on to the next generation enriches society.

So enjoy the information, and remember, pass it on
