“informed, entertaining, and full of hidden
(Ian Ansdell: The Electronic Herald)
We get lots and lots of e-mails from around the
world and happily most of them just say how great the site is.
"We are students currently studying interior design and would like
to say how much we liked your site. Its an inspiration and some great
advice. Keep up the good work and we will try to do the same... Heather and Fiona Glasgow"
"Great site! very different... Holly, New Mexico USA"
"Good day. I just want to tell you what a fabulous site you have. I
really think you guys are doing a great job and I actually went
through every single link on the site. It is so user friendly, so easy
to navigate and simple and at the same time so comprehensive! I am
about to get married and so I am still looking for ideas and boy, did
I get a fabulous beginning from your site! I am a Nigerian and staying
in Nigeri and I intend to use what I have gotten from the site, though
it is a little bit out of what we Nigerains are used to. Keep up the
good work and you can bet I already added you to my favourites list!...
Cheerio! Olabisi Tirvalola Babalola"
"Hi guys, Really liked the site. It was
fresh, clear and simple... Miriam"
"I would just like to say what a great
Web Page you have got! I am doing an Interior Design course at the
local college in the evenings, so I have very little time to go
searching for information, but with all that you have got to offer
it's great. I will be passing your web address to all my class mates,
so expect some more visitors. Thanks again... Sue"
But much as we appreciate the praise, you might well get bored with a
page of "Fantastic site!" e-mails, so we will also try to
give you a glimpse of some of the more unusual messages that arrive in
We would like to thank the Charles Rennie
Macintosh society for pointing out that we had managed to
misspell his name. What can we say but sorry. It's fixed now.
"The sounds are clever but can be a problem for your
visitors. In my case I use
the computer as a phone while I am surfing. If I was on a call, your sounds
would be a dead giveaway that I'm not paying full attention to
the caller ;-) ok, maybe I should but that's not always
practical. Visitors that are surfing from their place of work
could have real problems if sounds come through. Even if they
are surfing the web on break it could be a distraction in an
office setting... JM, Alaska USA"
Well, we thought about it, but decided that we liked it, that it was
good for getting into the swing
of the site, and those who wish to avoid the giveaway click will
have to use the alternative hot links
at the bottom of each page. They are silent and originally put there for people who don't have
Flash, or as a convenience to save
scrolling back up through long pages. But we're happy
to know now, that they have uses we hadn't thought of. Thank you
