….I completely redesigned the front end of this website. I spent a couple of days beforehand cruising around web-designers’ websites, putting myself in the place of a potential customer and noting what worked and what didn’t (tip no.1: don’t boast about how your sites are correctly coded and conform to web standards, and how your … Continue reading Wot I Did on my (Non)Hols….
…well, obviously. Will post properly soon.
This site will probably be offline for a few days from tomorrow (Monday); the hosting fee is due and I haven’t yet found the dosh. However, it will only be a temporary interruption – a fortnight at the most. Byeee!
I’m getting more involved in Facebook – I’m now in the networks of two daughters and a son-in-law. Nice to be able to keep up with family like this. For the last 24 hours, I’ve had a headache.
