Lots of friends

Mum and Dad have a lot of friends.

How do I know? This year they’re spending Christmas in Thailand with some friends. Fortunately they weren’t by the coast when the Earthquake and tidal waves struck so they’re fine.

For the last week the shop has had calls from many many people (some even managed to find my home phone number) all calling to find out if everything was OK with my parents. It’s nice to know so many people care for them.


Another thing I learn’t when growing up which now means a lot more to me:
You don’t always need to know the answer, just how to find out the answer.

I learnt that at ATC, during staff cadet training we didn’t need to know all the rules, but we were expected to know where to go and find the answer among the many books the ATC had.

Site Bugs to fix

Thanks to those who’ve pointed out the bugs on the site so far. The current list reads:

  • Comments Don’t work
  • Font size too small
  • Site is different in Internet Explorer to Mozilla Firefox

I’ll get to looking at the comments as soon as I get time.
Did you know you can change the font size for this site (and any other standards compliant site) in your browser? It’s simple, just select
“View” from the menu bar, then “Text Size” from the list, then choose to make it larger or smaller. The font size you see on your screen is affected by many things including the size of your screen and some Windows settings.
The differences between Firefox and Internet Explorer are down to the way they implement the web’s CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) standards (or more likely the way I’ve written my style sheet). Eventually I’ll figure out why they are different and fix them to be the same.
