About Aquarius Sailing Club Web Site updated 27Jun05

This web site has been developed
by Richard Cannon primary to provide
an additional communication and
information channel for the
Aquarius Sailing Club members;
about 60% have access to E-mail.


Generally whenever anything on
the site is updated the update date
in the top banner is changed to the date
of the latest change to any page.


The site is best viewed in 800x600 video resolution or better. The top Aquarius banner is created using frames. It has only been tested with browsers supporting frames and a browser that supports frames is strongly recommended.


The computer tools used in the development and maintenance are:- MS Word, MS Excel, MS PhotoEditor, Serif PagePlus desktop publishing, JASC PaintShop Pro, and Arachnophilia HTML editor. Files are uploaded to the server using WS_FTP LE, and tested with Netscape 6, Opera 6, FireFox, and Microsoft Internet Explorer 6. Emphasis has been made on fast loading of pages.


The site is hosted on ukgateway.net (from the Gateway computer manufacturer) now provided by Tiscali. The domain name and redirection is provided by 1and1.co.uk.


Most of the pictures are from a digital camera or frames captured from a digital camcorder, using Pinnacle Studio, with Firewire input.


Due to simple mail links causing a lot of problems with spam (60 per day) these links have either been removed or have been replaced by encoded links; the encoded links may not display in older browsers and they need ‘Allow blocked content’ to be enabled with Windows XP SP2.


Richard would like to receive news of any problems with this site or other comments and suggestions by Email to webmaster@sailaquarius.org.gif
using the link in the banner. (If the E-mail link is not visible enable ‘Allow blocked content’ in Windows XP SP2)


TIPS.


If using MS Internet Explorer, Netscape, FireFox or Opera pressing F11 expands the window to full screen allowing more of a page to be seen, press F11 again to return to normal view; to see even more right click the tool bar and select Autohide. Also you can drag the banner border up to just leave the menu showing.


If pages don’t seem to be updating to the latest version try right clicking it (not the banner) and select Refresh, if that doesn’t work try holding the Control key down while selecting refresh.


The right side of pages are often clipped when printed. Rather than using the Print command or Print Icon try clicking in a page to select it, then use File>Print Preview and choose Only selected frame; only recent versions of Internet Explorer have this option.
