Hi astrocards, Well done on producing what looks to be an interesting and educational game. Any ideas to encourage learning about astronomy should be praised....just make sure you're not accidentally copying anybody elses ideas!!! You could land yourself in trouble! The sample card design you provid...

The links at the top of the forum pages are now correct. The associated file was in an unexpected directory.

Hi Brian, Thanks for your comments - glad you like the new site. I tried it from my fathers beaten up old PC some 5 miles from the exchange and getting less than 3 mbps this afternoon and it downloaded very swiftly indeed. I will make some enquiries about replacing latest forum posts as you suggest ...

Marketing the Society is a vital process that you must understand. Social media may leave you cold, which is fine. No-one has said you should have an account with any of them. It is your choice. Many, many people do have them, and with the new site (even the old one), SPA have decided to give people...

Ian, The site is brand new from the ground up. In short, a totally fresh start. Nothing is where it was originally. Only the content of the site, as in the text, is the same. All the images have been moved to organised directories rather than scattered around the site as they were before. Therefore,...

Hi again Ian, Thanks again! There are some images that did not successfully make it through the upload. Thanks for pointing them out. The more information I get about the missing stuff and broken links, the quicker and easier it will be for me to correct them. Yours and everyone elses time and effor...

Ah, interesting. If three of your clients paid you to block the social networks etc, that is their choice. Perhaps they dislike them - they have a habit of annoying me sometimes which results in me leaving them alone for a while. Seems strange then that countless businesses have accounts. From a mar...

Hi Ian, Thanks for replying. Not sure where you found the localhost reference, I can't find it anywhere in the code. And no, we are certainly not hosting the site on your computer! I don't know why there is so much annoyance about Twitter and Facebook being featured on the new site. If visitors don'...

The new site has moved to a content management system (to make it look like 101 other sites - no individuality). Such packages mean you really don't have to create a web site at all as they constrain the layout massively to how they like things (which is why they all look like a DIY "cheapo" site)....

Hi Ben, Ah, timelapse is one of my favourite techniques. Here are my thoughts. 1. How many 15 - 30 sec exposures should I aim to shoot in one night? Say how many would I need to compile a 20 second AVI? You need to decide how many frames per second (fps) you want your final movie to be. I do mine at...
