Hey everyone.

Sorry I haven’t updated much, been working as usual.

One of the things I’ve been working on is a website (www.housebbi.com)  for a friend of mine, Dave Bodycomb.
He’s an Architect and Builder, who is using his wealth of experience to help inspect homes before people buy them.
He creates a detailed analysis of the building, highlighting any weaknesses, or areas that are likely to require special attention. If anyone in Adelaide, South Australia is looking at purchasing a house, I highly suggest you contact him.

The website is House Buyers Building Inspections From a design point of view the site is on-purposely simple and efficient, but hopefully without being boring. Creating it was a good exercise for me, as I created it all by hand, using a lot of CSS for the look and layout, with bits of PHP for some dynamic parts, and to make updating the header, and footer easier.
The highlight for me was calling Dave up and making style changes as he was on the phone. I had WinSCP automatically updating any local file changes to the webserver (keep remote directory up to date), and was editing the CSS and HTML using SciTE. I found this was a great way to code, although you do need to be familiar with the languages.

Q: Why do I code by hand?
A:
Because I’ve tried various editors and IDE’s and they seem to be more work, not less, and very few even know a:hover{ text-decoration: underline; } let alone advanced CSS and PHP.
