    You aint the only one who would do things for free to help out people, althugh i do see where simon is coming from sometimes it's a rewarding thing helping out schools/places/people voluntary someties you even get something to say thanks which is not expected! but helping the community is good!

    Hence why i have done EduTech Hosting.

    @steve - if they need somewhere to host the site give me the heads up! also nice one on the edugeek plug.

    Headline - EduGeek Members Help Bring School Website to Life! EduGeek Joomla!!

    Jolly Good Show

    I seem to recall some advice given on these forums to those who wanted to get a foot on the educational IT support ladder was to try doing some voluntary work to gain experience and have something to add to your cv.

    In my own case, It just a case of where to direct charitable efforts

    The chair of govs of my local school (the Vicar) asked me if I'd mind doing a website for his church.

    I'm not of his faith but of course I said no problem - and I wouldn't dream of charging him.

    Now, I'd expect someone local to the school you mentioned to maybe do the same.

    But I pay for my beer by making school websites so I personally wouldn't want to do it for free

    For others around here - its their livelyhoods.

    regards

    OK. But just because you can't afford to do it, doesn't mean others can't... best not to comment at all rather than stir up a "why should we do it for free" theme
