Re: Behind the Scenes meeting, Thurs 15th, 8pm

Nobody made it except me & Chris. It was very productive meeting. We decided to scrap funding for everything except the website, which needs new colors. And to put biometric locks on everything.

Behind the Scenes meeting, Thurs 15th, 8pm

Ok, so I forgot to hold the last BTS meeting. No matter. The next one will be on Thursday 15th April at 8pm.

The current remit of the behind the scenes group includes: internet, computers, technology, shop, grants, and general admin/paperwork.

Be there or don't be square.

Hi. I clicked on forest records from the forest homepage and it opened in a new window. Just wanted to point out that this is bad practice in web design. If you're going to open a new window for someone you should have a damn good reason. Otherwise, you should let them keep things in the same window...

Also, continous non-stop music isn't always neccesary - sometimes music is more appreciated when it comes between spells of silence/cafe ambience... I agree about this.
