10,000?Thank You!  In the end we had a record 9,409 visitors last month, perhaps if you tell more of your friends about us (or if you're a property developer tell that bloke at the district council you take out for a drink) we'll get over 10,000 this month?

tweet sockWe don't have even a 100 followers on Twitter, and some of those we do have are distinctly dodgy, but WeFollow reckons we're the fifth most influential tweeter in Suffolk ... mind you we've got a ways to go to catch up with Food Safari; and thank you everybody for a record 9,134 visitors in this month so far.

You may think we're geeks but just imagine what the uber geeksW3C Markup Validation Service at the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) must be like.  W3C specify standards and if your web site complies with the standards it makes the world a better place.  We spent a very long day yesterday replacing embeds with objects, includes with nested templates, nowraps with nowrap="nowrap"s and eventually we ended up with a wobbly looking home page but it did W3C validate ... just made a small change and it doesn't validate anymore, well see for yourself ... then we fixed it.

Thanks to Karl Semple's conversion script the bulletin board is more or less back.  (PC Jeff Burt's wedding pics have gone missing but we can soon upload them again.)  God bless you Karl Semple.  May all your children be pension fund managers.

J Tarquin Browne on the beach near Salobrena01:30pm  Ah well, mother said there would be days like this.  The database software on the new host is a newer version than the old host and attempts to post on the board get an error message.  Working on it ... they're probably thinking about a siesta in Salobreña right now (it's 2:30 there) ... we would say "Apologies for any inconvenience" but we're not Icelandic and we don't have your money ...
