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 ... again) 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.

th 29 Oct

Hopefully we'll go over 9,000 visitorsIf we get few extra new visitors over the next couple of days we should go over 9,000 visitors in a month for the first time.  So tell all your friends about us ... or if you're a property developer tell that bloke at the district council you take out for a drink.

Sorry!  For some reason we still don't understand our email list software decided to send out the January? des' dinners to everyone this morning.  We've made it sit on the naughty step and think about what its done.

The new print gallery front pageWe'd rather feared that the builders had gone off on another job before finishing the makeover on our print gallery but eventually they turned up to finish the job and we rather like the slide show.

Our new made over print gallery should be revealed Tuesday.

Our online print galleryOur print gallery is online again, PhotoBox must have bought the domain back, couldn't find their bum with their hand if they were sitting on it.

we 26 Nov

Oh poo!  Something's happened at PhotoBox and our print gallery has gone all Charlie Brooker ... working on it ... Can you believe it?  It looks like they failed to renew the domain and someone's hijacked it!

we 19 Nov

We're about to lock the bulletin board so we can upgrade the software ... upgrade done!  Now, if we ever relocate to Venezuela the time will be right.

You may think we're geeks but just imagine what the uber geeks at the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) must be like.  W3C specify standards

W3C Markup Validation Service

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 Salobrena11:00am  We seem to be sorted but have to wait for name server changes to spread to your service provider.

01:30pm  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 ...

su 12 Oct

No, we don't learn so we're going to try changing this site's host again this evening.  Expect things to go wobbly for a bit.

10:00pm  Getting there but expect more wobbling.

09:45pm  It's a case of it should work ... but it doesn't, so we're moving back to the previous host which will reinstate the bulletin board and give us time to sort this out off line .. you win some, you loose some:)

03:00pm  The database restoration is turning out more difficult than we remember:)

12:05pm  Software installed and running but the database has yet to be restored.  If you post a message now it will be lost when the database is restored.

11:15am  That's an improvement already, the software uploaded in one hit.

10:30am  This web site moved host last night, the bulletin board will be back later this morning.

Toyota Rav 4 now on ebaYThe Free Ads didn't work for this Toyota so now it's on ebaY, maybe this Citroen Saxo will be luckier.  A pic does make a BIG difference though and with the new bulletin board software you can easily add a pic as an attachment.
