School Website

Not content with having built my own website, I recently volunteered to put one together for my school and set up email for the teachers. It seems to have spiralled from there into a company blog and student forum as well, and my initial promise to have everything up and running in under five man hours seems to be a wild exaggeration.

However, it seems to be working fine at the moment, and now all I have to do is present our teachers with their accounts. I'm hoping all will go smoothly.

Google Addiction!

The website stuff is coming along. Having filled it up with feeds from the blog and my calendar, it almost looks like a website now, not just a parking space for my photo! I've also been having a look at Google Docs for hosting some poetry from an older site, and it seems to be behaving so far. I'll be putting up links on the website as and when I get around to it.

Thinking about it, I seem to be turning into a Google junkie. I'm using FeedBurner for the feeds, Blogger for the blog, Picasa for photos, Apps for the domain, Calendar for the calendar, Docs & Spreadsheets for documents and Page Creator for the home page. It's just too easy to stick them all together! That's to say, it's too easy if you want to do things on the cheap. I'm sure if I had oodles of money, I would shun these practices.
