The year has almost gone…

December 27th, 2005 · No Comments

Well the year is drawing to a close, thank God, and to be truthful I will view it with some mixed emotions… It started well with me taking the company from a lowly sole trader to a more established Limited Company. I wanted to do this for several reasons but the main one being it […]

Yeh I know…

December 23rd, 2005 · No Comments

Knowing full well how much I like Little Britain and obviously consuming too much of the Christmas spirit, one of my good friends Alex from www.redtigerdesign.com knocked up a quick graphic that he suggested I use on the redesigned hosting site… Somehow I dont think it will be appropriate, but it’s good enough for the […]
