I know what HTML is, but I can’t compile it. I need serious help, and up until recently, it came from use of FrontPage 2003. It was the last of the breed of ‘easy to use’ Microsoft WYSIWYG HTML editors and has been discontinued. Attention was turned towards a more professional tool, and Expression Web […]

None in the last hour, but 11 criticals and 17 warnings in the last 24 hours has marred what otherwise could have been a perfect day. The criticals were all to do with a SanDisk Cruzer 4gb which morphed into a Cruzer 0gb. This set off Windows 8 into a world where no USB flash […]
