As regular visitors may be aware my site crashed about ten days ago. This experience has had me rethinking my hosting options. I have decided to make a move. This will probably take two to three weeks to research, plan and carry out. In the meantime I am not going to publish any new posts.Continue reading “Web hosting”

Happy 21st George. Party party. This photograph was taken at the Mount on the 10th of January 1997.

I love street scenes. I love ordinariness. I love photographs taken years ago of places I know well. I am a documentary photographer. I photographContinue reading “Anzac Street”
Seems our government is not alone in using stock photographs to put a point across.
I like it. It is simple to use. The new tab/most visited site/browser history thing is great. It doesn’t have any fancy functionality. Very basic. No FTP, no web developer stuff which I use daily with Firefox. The navigation/address bar doubles as the search engine. Apparently it shares a common heritage with Safari. You canContinue reading “Google Chrome”

This outfit cold called us last week. They featured on one of the six o’clock news shows this evening (sorry not sure which as I tend to flick backwards and forwards depending on the story). Not sure if we were singled out but it took us two days to shake them off. See here. AndContinue reading “NBO hassles”

As noted elsewhere viewing the ‘lighbox’ gallery can be a bit of a problem with Internet Explorer. This is what should happen. In the screenshot above the cursor arrow sits on the first thumbnail (you can choose any thumbnail).
