  1. Looking for suggestions on the best way to move an old bike from the UK (Bristol) to near Toulouse, its a 1959 Triton so riding it down, while not out of the question, is going to be hard going.

    Anyone coming from SW UK to anywhere in France with a van?

    Anyone put a bike on the SNCF in France?

    Any other suggestions most welcome... I want my bike!!

  2. Connect the 2 PC's together using a CAT5 CROSSOVER cable into the RJ45 connections on each PC

    The PC that has the modem connection, go to Settings -> Network Connections and right click on the modem connection, enable sharing, et voila!

    Firewalls may cause a problem, it may also be wise to set both PC's in the same workgroup (right click 'My Computer' - > Properties -> Computer Name)

    Good Luck

    I think .com will probably be best as we will be aiming at a fairly wide target audience.

    More importantly - where are you going to host the website? location of hosting should be decided by your target audiences location

    I like your site, Mike: very clean and crisp. Loved the homepage graphic, too.

    Merci!

    Nathalie, I think you accidently sent me a Private Message recommending i use your friend to build me a website - LOL, thanks a lot!

  5. Its what every site SHOULD do to become accessible, incidentally sites that don't may well be breaking the law, esp. if those sites are deemed to be providing a service... Arguably that’s every web site

    Information here on Europe, France and all member states:

    http://www.webaim.org/coordination/law/eu/

    In the UK the RNIB (Royal National Institute for the Blind) claims that they've considered taking up a number of legal cases against organizations with regard to their websites. When they have raised the issue of website accessibility, companies have typically made the necessary changes rather than face the prospect of legal action.

    The relevant quotes from the UK Disability Discrimination Act 175-page document are:

    2.2 (p7): "The Act makes it unlawful for a service provider to discriminate against a disabled person by refusing to provide any service which it provides to members of the public."

    4.7 (p39): "From 1st October 1999 a service provider has to take reasonable steps to change a practice which makes it unreasonably difficult for disabled people to make use of its services."

    2.13 - 2.17 (p11-13): "What services are affected by the Act? An airline company provides a flight reservation and booking service to the public on its website. This is a provision of a service and is subject to the act."

    5.23 (p71): "For people with visual impairments, the range of auxiliary aids or services which it might be reasonable to provide to ensure that services are accessible might include … accessible websites."

    5.26 (p68): "For people with hearing disabilities, the range of auxiliary aids or services which it might be reasonable to provide to ensure that services are accessible might include … accessible websites."

  6. The problem is in the Stylesheet the forum software uses, in the New Forum Software' thread I have posted a sloution to the problem (for the forum dev team)

    Simply holding down the Ctrl key and using the mouse scroll wheel will adjust the font size, at least with this version of the software you CAN adjust the font size which is a step forward

    Hi,

    If you are logged in and click on your user name (at the top of the forum just after it says 'Edit your details') there is a menu

    Font Size

    Set this to largest.

    If you are still having problems you can change the size of the font in View>text size in Internet Explorer.

    Set the body font size in the CSS to 76% rather than 1 em - should solve the problem - may have to adjust other font sizes that cascade below the body element

    The current setting allows for a font size so small its useless

  9. Hegs, these are simply ideas of factors that may be in place, or are a possible to be in place, in SE's that may determine the quality of a site, and yes with that simple 'if' statement there would be huge errors and I believe Google or any other SE would have a far better answer than that!

    You seem to miss the point that 'indications of site qualtiy' is not a list of facts, more a list of ideas that could contribute to 'improved quality' and may improve your sites performance - seems to work for me 

  10. >> it is impossible even to determine which are the help pages

    Not hard - If in anchor text "help" or "faq" or "support" and in linked_page (instring "?") then help page = true

    If google can sort billions of docs in fractions of seconds then this really is not hard - I even do similar things in house here

    The whole point (and my job) is to think one step ahead of the SE's - or try my best too - you can be damn sure 'the plex' 9googles headquarters) are working hard to improve result quality continously - you only have to look back a few years to see the results of not doing this - remember AltaVista?

    Once such a giant and now provides 1 - 1.5% of traffic if you are lucky
