Lots of folk write and ask me for advice, instructions and general information. I decided that I would put a place on the internet that allows them to visit and see what mischief I am (or have been) up to. Hopefully it will be appreciated - please feel free to press Ctrl + End and go to the bottom of this page and give me some feedback. If you think that it is worth it, please tell your friends, if not, please tell me - thank you.

It is my intention to add something here every 7 to 10 days - the most recent stuff will always be at the top of the page to save you time. My policy and techniques for removing stuff from the bottom - there will only ever be two weeks information shown in this page. At the bottom there will be a link to an index of earlier pages. This way, it will stop the page from becoming too long and unwieldy !

News
I mentioned last week that my back had given out on me. Several folk have enquired about the possibility of the cause being a trapped nerve. They have been quite taken aback when I tell them that it is "my back telling me that my belly is too heavy"

Anyroadup, it has meant that there has been virtually no opportunity to get out and experience things to tell you about. Laying flat on my back is the least painful position that I have found (either bed or settee !!) Standing is tolerable too. Sitting can become very painful quite quickly.

For these reasons, button pressing has been dramatically reduced - sorry.

If it is of any consequence to you, it does seem to be getting a little better - seeing a physiotherapist/osteopath/accupunturist tommorow.


Once again, not a lot of activity this week !

Training
One of the many things I am doing at the moment is producing a Training Package to teach folk how to create, manage and maintain web sites.

So simple, anyone could teach themselves !!

I plan to distribute it on CD.
It is already around 5Mb - too big to upload and for Jill and Joe Public to download to/from the Web

It will contain several thousand pages.
It is presented as an HTA file
It is expected that there will between 150 and 250 hours of work for students

They can do it (all or any part of it) at their own chosen speed.

Somewhere around 10% of the work is already done.

I have given a copy of the CD in its present state to several students.
They install it on their PC
I send updates to them by EMail.

Below is an Index Tree that gives you an idea of the contents

 Method of training
 News about this package

If you want a copy of the CD, send me your Snail Mail address by private EMail and I will send you a copy.

Links
You will have seen the abbreviations that are so much part of the Internet in general and EMail in particular. Click here for a web page that lists the meanings of lots of them.


If you are looking for to meet folk, for pleasure or business, you could do well to use a Workspace centre. You can just sit in a lounge and have a natter and a cuppa, sit at an hot desk and collect your EMails, or use a meeting room (available for between 4 and lots of folks) Click here to see details. There are quite a few around the country already and more appearing very fast. Click on the "Workspace Satellite" link to see the list of them.

I really do commend them to you.
