The International Steam Pages


Sweet Dreams

Dropbox Download Just GBP 6!

The ultimate Javanese Sugar CD is now released. I have selected more than 300 pictures from my colour slide collection taken over a period of more than 20 years. Each image is designed to be presented on a 800x600 (sVGA) screen using 'Hi-color setting'. Every aspect of sugar mill activity is covered and there are also 16 short video clips to show particular aspects of operation.  Some of the pictures appear (in reduced size) on these pages but most have never been published.

2. Conventional (mailed) CD.

The full cost including postage is just GBP 16 worldwide - or the current equivalent in USD or EUR etc, with ever changing rates I no longer quote exact values.

Use this button to pay for the Conventional (mailed) CD.

Alternatively send an email to , indicating where you would like the CD sent and I will advise available methods which will avoid excessive bank charges.

(IMPORTANT: the addresses with "@" above are NOT LINKS which can be clicked, they are images, you will have to retype them for an email or Paypal transaction. Sorry but that has to be done to try to prevent the address being spammed.

Non UK EU customers should note that for VAT purposes you are actually paying for a plain vanilla CD version without Jewel case which I will retain here unless you are willing to pay extra for posting it to you. The Download will then be free,
