Website Update

19/07/10 - Website Update

So, the most important thing that happened in this last week, is obviously Rudi and Ali's party in the village Hall on Friday night. On Saturday morning, I updated the site with a very brief description of what was an excellent night out. I was delighted to hear by mid-afternoon on Saturday that there was already feedback on the island say that the was a write up on the site of the previous night, indeed after Rudi and Ali's generous donation, I updated this on Sunday lunchtime to be rang on Monday morning by a delighted Ali thanking me for the comments on the site. This is where we should be aiming with the site, to have residents of Gigha using this site as a means of finding out information both historical and contemporary -- and that is what I am aiming to do from now.

Rhona Allen has kindly offered to help with the updating of the site, thanks Rhona, and be getting in touch with Rhona this week to farm out some of the work. Have also been in contact with all the local groups of the island to try and gather information and contents on the site, few forthcoming as yet, but I am sure a constant bombardment of e-mails will generate content soon enough! We've also been discussing the role of advertising on the site and with the help of Audrey and Jackie in the Trust Office these letters will be going out early next week. The income raised from low-level advertising on the island and associated mainland businesses will ensure that the site is not a burden to the trust, indeed it may in the future even contribute financially.

I have spent quite some time trying to find a Java/CSS applet that can provide me with the calendar function for the events section of the site. Unfortunately so far, all the apps and scripts that I can find are very complex and/or expensive -- but I'll keep looking. As you can see Mick has provided some content for the blog, my wife Viv's promised to by the end of the week -- I believe her blog will be one hundred and one uses of an egg -- and I have been badgering Susan and Mickey in the gardens for a gardens blog.

Anyway, Viv and I are off to Arran for a few days, so I'll get back into the site when I returned on Thursday.

Till then bye!
