Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome to the interwebs… Simon Carr.
No related posts.
I’m well happy that Simon Carr finally has webspace. But what’s with that URL? And why no RSS?
I know, I know… it’s all a bit shaky – but that does little to dent how chuffed I am that he’s online at last.
A very welcome arrival indeed, but I’m gonna have to second Peter’s observations.
Hey, we offered to help (as you know). A man has to find his own path, and I’m prepared to give Simon a lot of leeway.
Excellent news. Henry Porter next, please.
Tried accessing his site from 3 different machines, and it crashed Internet Explorer on all of them :(
Jherad: This from Simon’s email telling us about the site…It doesn’t like PCs with older Internet Explorer as the browser. Itlikes Macs, and will tolerate Safari, Firefox or Mozilla. Bloody picky,really. I hope to prevail on my designer t do something more generallyapplicable but he gets quite rude about people who have out of date kit (twoyears old is pre-Cambrian).ChickYog: Terry Jones tops my wish-list. Here’s one small reason why:http://www.guardian.co.uk/usa/story/0,12271,1239824,00.html
Heheh, well I tried one with XP and IE6, and 2 with NT4 and IE5.5sp2 – my fault for sticking with MS, but I’m being naughty and browsing from work.I’ll take a look when I get home, I’m expecting much goodness.
A quick scan of the page source for his site shows that he’s using Apple’s iWeb 1.1.1, which appears to be Apple’s answer to Macromedia Contribute (sort of)…Actually all the reviews I read of iWeb are non too gentle about its limitations – it’s a blogging system, Jim, but not as we know it.It’ll apparently do RSS but no comments or trackbacks as its got no server-side backend.
