Phil and Curt. Nice sites. My wife says I should set one up but I'm not sure I'd have the time to keep up with it. I can barely keep up with the stuff I'm doing now. Oh well, down the road somewhere.

Has anyone ever seen the work by Cindy Drozda. This is some very impressive and inspirational work.

I've been lucky enough to see Ms. Drozda twice at the Rocky Mountain Turning Symposium.  In person, her delicate boxes and finials are something else.

In Loveland, she did easier stuff.  I helped clean up one year and while sweeping up around Cindy's area, she found a roughed banksia pod in her stuff that she had forgotten to give to the raffle.  This was after the raffle where I didn't win anything  Cry . I told Cindy I still had a ticket, and she gave me the piece  Grin

I downloaded NVU to take a look. I have thought about doing a page when I get some time on a rainy day(s). It still looks daunting. My ISP give 10MB as personal space. I don't know if that is a lot or not. Anyway, thought I would join the fun sometime.

I used yahoo for a long time until I decided that I wanted to let customers purchase my items through my site, and be able to pay with their credit cards. Believe it or not, SAMS club has web hosting. go to Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register and check it out. they only charge $10.00 per month for a professional site. My web site is Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register you can look around and get an idea of what you can do with their tools. They use their own software so you don't have to download or figure out how to use Microsoft etc. Their tech support is great and will walk you through every step of the way.

I find things daunting when I'm worrying about messing something up.  Don't worry about messing anything up and you'll find your way around NVu very quickly.  Just play with it for a few days and get use to how it works.

10 Megs should be plenty for a personal site, at least to start.  WR is huge and it is currently under 100 megs.  It's all a matter of optimizing the pages.  the biggest hint I can give is make sure your photos are clean with small file sizes and you'll have loads of space for a good while.

I go out of town again next week, and will take NVU on my laptop and play some. One day I may do a page Smiley

I know this is an old thread but I was reviewing some info that people posted here and I was wondering if you ever did anything Nappan?  As far as making a website is concerned?
  I am really curious about this NVU software Negeltu talks about.  I am at work right now or I would download it and check it out.  I guess CFuller is sold on it, how do you feel about it? 
  Ihave been spending a bunch of hours killing time here at work trying to learn HTML coding.  It doesn't seem all that hard, it just can get a bit messy and complicated the more you add to it. 
  In case you haven't figured it out, I am on my website kick again.  I know that I did that one before but that has about run as far as it can go, besides I need my own domain so that I can add it to my business cards.   Well thaanks for the rant.  Chris, Negeltu (George) I hope you'll be patient with me when I bug you all the time.

HTML by itself is fairly simple to learn.  Heck, I learned it in a weekend.  From there I went on to javascript, php, perl etc...  I was lucky enough to know a real webmaster who took pity on me and took me under his wing.

Stick with HTML and NVU and you will do just fine.  I'm always here to help and I'm sure Chris is too.  Wink
