Sorry I have been away ill for a while…

Saturday, January 23rd, 2010

For anyone that frequents my site and is wondering why the site has not been updated for a while, it is simply because my ongoing illness often stops me from doing a lot of things and there have been other things occupying my time.  However I want to keep this site up and running and will be trying to make more frequent posts as I can with posts being created over several days.


New Camera Forums website

Monday, March 16th, 2009

Well it was something in the planning for quite some time, saying should I or shouldn’t I but in the end I did it and I am happy to announce the release of

While it might seem like your normal run of the mill forum site this site has been developed by me to fill a need.  By that I mean it is targeted more to the Aussie user, but it is by no means restricted only to Australians.  Anyone from anywhere is welcome to come along and make themselves a member and chat about everything related to cameras.

Rather than focus on one type of camera I have made it cover cameras of all types and styles and uses.  From the older film cameras to the more current digital, from the point and shoot all the way up to the Digital SLR range of cameras.  It also covers camcorders and other video camera types such as web cams and security cameras.  Basically if it is camera related then this is the forums for it.

The forums however will only be successful if they are used so what are you waiting for go and create an account and help me make them useful for everyone 🙂

I will also be allowing store owners to make posts about their services and supplies and hope to soon have a discount system in place where members will be able to get a discount from the stores that do post on the forums – more on that soon 🙂

So anyway hope you like the new forums and find them useful and as always any feedback is always helpful 🙂



Is no news good news?

Thursday, January 22nd, 2009

It has again been no news from me on the site – sorry people just too busy with other aspects of my life – will try and get into this blog thing a bit more over the next few weeks and don’t be surprised if you see some more controveral topics 🙂


Wow does time fly…

Monday, September 15th, 2008

Well if your a visitor to my site every now and then your probably thinking I have left the building, well nothing could be further from the truth.  The fact is I’m busy – very very busy and as such have little time to do what I really want to do, such as make posts here 🙂

But no matter I am still around, just in case you are curious… I have even had a few of my clients ask where I am as my MSN has been offline for a few days…  I have been there just my MSN was off (by accident of course).

That brings me to a new topic I am writing and it is about support from freelancers and I mean after completed work support.  I pride myself on after project completion support no matter what it is and I know my clients really appreciate it.  However I am interested to hear (or read) any views on after web site deign support, to what level (if any) do you provide free support, what support fees you charge (if any), do you have a support fee structure and how well is that received by your current and past clients… so may questions and do little time – so anyway I’ll be back soon with an expanded topic relating to after web site design completion support… so come back soon 🙂


First Post

Thursday, July 3rd, 2008

Well, here we are, or here you are – a new blog you say.  So what makes this one any different to any other one you have read.  Well that is a really good question but I cannot really answer that for you as what you get out of my blog will depend on many factors that are too long to get into on this initial post.

I don’t claim to be an expert in any field, nor do I wish to be labeled as one.  My blog is simply that ‘my blog’ and will simply be about whatever it is that is of interest to me and hopefully to you each day, week, month and year 🙂

So what’s in a name, as in my blog URL and title, that being ‘That Net Site’ or ‘’?  Well nothing really it is simply a name – and a catchy one at that – I could not believe this one was still available – lucky me I guess.

What will be included in my blog will depend on my mood each day and what I am doing, it will include general comment and opinion as well as information about other sites I find useful and tips and tricks that I learn along my daily paths that may be of interest and benefit to others.  My writing style is simple and to the point, I tend to call a spade a spade but endeavor to try and look at things from every angle.  I tend to horde many things (mostly computer related) and I am fairly well organised (when I get around to it 🙂 ) – a little too organised at times.

So why blog now, well my better half (PetArtist and wife) has been suggesting I setup a blog and use it as my daily hobby to relax, have a bit of fun and do what I like to do which is to share a little with everyone.  It has been a long time coming I must confess and I am sure you will say or read bits and pieces on my blog that are also covered elsewhere, but hopefully my way is a new and more interesting way for you.  I have actively been using the Internet since 1995 with my first website still operating –

Anyway that will do it for my first post I am sure I’ll add more about me and this site later on, at this stage I am simply putting it together so if you drop in every now and then I am sure you will see it changing daily as I play with the templates, styles and format of this great open source blog software called WordPress.
