6th August - Kevin Foulger's interview is broadvast on Stoneleigh FM. Kevin was interviewed by Jon Champion. The radio station was operated from and served Stoneleigh Bible Week. This conference used to meet near Leamington Spa, UK and the broadcast went out over a 15 mile footprint. This was to be the last ever Stoneleigh Bible Week.
New Year 2000 - Kevin buys a copy of a computer magazine called PC Home (Music Special) Issue 92 and on the free CD that came with it, is a piece of trial software called TOTAL eJay. The demo inspires Kevin and soon afterward, Kevin buys a PC and a full version of eJay and begins creating music. The PC is a Packard Bell PC with a Celeron processor, 63 MB of RAM, 7.85 GB hard drive.
Burning CDs then wasn't as easy as it is today. You had to have data CDs for data and music CDs for music. You had to manually do things like "close the session" or the CD wouldn't work. Burning the first copy of Dance Before The King felt like quite an achievement.
August 2000 - Dance Before The King by Newton Apple is announced as the winning track in the eJay Magazine after running their competition. The judge is DJ Carl Cox.

7th October 2000 - www.newtonapple.co.uk goes online after a lot of hard work, some prayer and a devine appointment with a man who recommended a very good book on HTML 4.

This has to be highly compressed due to Internet users having to access the Web via dial up modems, which can't download very much very quickly.
Kevin goes to a social evening at friend's house and shares his dream of creating Christian Dance Music.
A jam session jam session with friends produced a demo by "Isaac Newton's Apple" a name that Kevin came up with.
Lyrics and music of The Hero of All Time completed.
The Newton Apple logo was designed using technical drawing pens and french curves.
