Hello and welcome to my site. My name is Chas. I'm a long time computer builder, fixer and programmer. I used to work in the computer and consumer electronics industries, as an engineer, technical trainer and IT management. Now retired, I have offered help and assistance to friends, family, former colleagues and acquaintances with their computers and websites.

Sadly, due to health reasons, I am no longer offering help outside of this website. I hope what you find here can help and in time, I'll try and add other knowledge snippets from my log book which may help others. If you have found anything userful then I'm happy.

If you want a cheap website set up, there are loads of people out there who will build you one for about a hundred quid. I specialised in websites where the user wants to update it regularly. To achieve this I prefered to use a Content Management System (CMS) like JOOMLA as I've worked with it from it's Mambo beginnings.

Joomla is simple to install and use, it's extremely versatile and has loads of support for it worldwide. And there are thousands or ready made templates to choose from so very little work to do to make it great.

This site was built with Joomla version 2.5 but I upgraded to the latest Joomla version 3.xx Not a too difficult task if planned properly.

I highly recommend WHUK as a hosting company & domain registrar.

I've written some useful general knowledge articles to help everyone so feel free to browse the menus, let me know if there's something you'd like to see an article about or if you know the subject, write the article and e-mail it to me and If I like it, I'll include it on my site with full credit to you.
