Hello and welcome to my site. My name is Chas. I'm a long time computer builder, fixer and programmer. I used to work in the computer and consumer electronics industries, as an engineer, technical trainer and IT management. Now retired, I have offered help and assistance to friends, family, former colleagues and acquaintances with their computers and websites.

If you want a cheap website set up, there are loads of people out there who will build you one for about a hundred quid. I specialised in websites where the user wants to update it regularly. To achieve this I prefered to use a Content Management System (CMS) like JOOMLA or WORDPRESS. I prefer Joomla as I've worked with it from it's Mambo beginnings.

Joomla is simple to install and use, it's extremely versatile and has loads of support for it worldwide.

This site was built with Joomla version 2.5 but I recently upgraded to the latest Joomla version 3.xx Not a too difficult task if planned properly.

So if you want a Joomla site set up I highly recommend WHUK as a hosting company & domain registrar.

I'm building up some useful general knowledge articles based on my experiences to help everyone so feel free to browse the menus, let me know if there's something you'd like to see an article about or better still, write the article and e-mail it to me and If I like it, I'll include it on my site with full credit to you.

I no longer take on any new projects or offer direct assistance but I'll try and offer what advice I can if possible. Please use the CONTACT ME page to get in touch.

I hope you build a great website.
