    Smile Hello

    Hi all, I wanted to post & say hi rather than loiter forever on the online list !!

    Very much enjoying reading the threads here from many sides of the coin - I have a 15yr old who loves IT and sharing a joke about the antics of classmates in their never ending quest for proxy sites & other questionably challenging activities & a 7yr who wishes their ICT suite were tripled in size and lessons in there could last all day !!

    I run & own Silkysteps.com which is an Early years resource site & whilst a lot of the technical things here sound like 'whooosh I am also hoping the information can help me direct & inform visitors & members of my forum/website

    Thanks for listening & for such a great site

    Ruth

    Thanks Pixel drawing/image editing is much more practice than ability to draw though & a lot of the credit has to go to the hardware & software !!

    11:48pm - your website has conked out. It was there a minute ago! I get the following message when I try to access any page:

    Server Error
    The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request.

    Hello and welcome,

    Great site looks really good, like the graphics can see your very good at what you enjoy doing.

    By any chance did you use the Open Mind Software when developing the site ?

    Open Minded Media designed the site it seems. Open Minded Media and Open Minded Software are both owned by Open Minded Solutions Ltd.

    Hi James,

    The website was a project I placed in the hands of OMS ltd

    Apart from a detailed brief I had little to do with the technical development of the site. I manage all content, upkeep and additional pages to the main site via a CMS.

    Sorry .. I have a much better grasp on technical things now & build very basic pages for different occasions/upgrade the forum software etc but was a complete beginner at that stage !!

    Cool, i was just wondering as i have had chats with the people who work for OMS in the past and they are a very good company i must say.

    i supose we were all beginners at some point in life

    Regards

    James
