  1. Please rate my website

    It's perfection. Finally. We can all go home now and tend our fields and cattle
  2. all you need to do is fill in a tax return (online) and if there is tax to pay it will be deducted with your PAYE. You will have some expenses if you did the work at home, like your personal computing equipment and heating your house while you worked which will reduce the profit you declare. For that kind of amount you will only be making a declaration of three figures: turnover - expenses = profit and you won't need to show any detail. Even if the IR asked to see receipts which they won't the worst that would happen is that that you might have to pay a bit more tax. Disclaimer: - IANAAccountant and if you get put in prison for taking my advice I don't want to know
  3. Slide Show?

    If you are using a cms you use a plugin. If you are just making web pages you google "free slideshow image slider html" and you end up somewhere like https://www.jqueryscript.net/slider/nivo-slider.html and you just copy and paste the right bits of markup and code into your pages. It's easy, but people will think you are really clever.
  4. Looking for a web designer

    It looks like a totally straightforward job. I would happily do it for you.
  5. Scheduled tweets

    hootsuite was my final choice. free for 30 scheduled tweets, that's fine for me.
  6. Finally got it working! Only wish I knew how, but some undocumented random combination of chown and chmod actualy did the job for the first time ever. Trouble is I can't remember the long key sequences I have to type faultlessly into that blinking black box the terminator to start it up on a Monday morning. In Windows I would have dragged the executable onto the start menu with my right button and made a shortcut in half a second, but you can't do that in linux. The terminal is the most stupid way to start a program ever invented. Sorry to vent. Off to google and copy paste the commands now. TW
  7. I can make that site for you without any problem, and smarten it up a bit and make it responsive. I am very used to making good sites on a limited budget. If you want to talk a bit about what's a requirement, what's optional and what's unnecessary I will give you a price. My own site is a bit neglected and for various reasons I haven't made a lot of new websites in the last year, but here: www.cyberpress.biz . what country are you in?
  8. Too Old?

    i would say if you were 56 you might be too old, but 26? Pah!
  9. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz......

  10. Thanks. I finally dban'd reformatted and reinstalled W7 and linux mint so I have a new clean system. I have to do some work and I will be using windows because it is really, really easy to install ampps or wampserver and get going. I am not well disposed to linux atm and can't waste any more time so maybe another day I might look at it again.
  11. Or what you can do is look at the page source and open the css file where you will see: /** * Magento * * NOTICE OF LICENSE * * This source file is subject to the Academic Free License (AFL 3.0) * that is bundled with this package in the file LICENSE_AFL.txt. * It is also available through the world-wide-web at this URL: * http://opensource.org/licenses/afl-3.0.php * If you did not receive a copy of the license and are unable to * obtain it through the world-wide-web, please send an email * to license@magentocommerce.com so we can send you a copy immediately. * * DISCLAIMER * * Do not edit or add to this file if you wish to upgrade Magento to newer * versions in the future.

  12. Stop it ! You're cracking me up. 'Have I looked for a tutorial?' That's a good one! I have only wasted about a week of my life looking at tutorials. One of the rubbish things about linux is the lack of good documentation combined with the vast amounts of bad advice and amateur tutorials. I am doing my work on a couple of old laptops this week and when I am not working I am still trying to get my main desktop pc up and running after I messed it up with too many failed attempts to set up a lamp server. The late nights and the missed deadlines have made me slightly hysterical and prone to maniacal laughter.
  13. Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha
  14. I flipping hate that terminal
  15. I am about ready to go back to windows. And that's saying something.
