    Here is a description of my site:
    Taken from our "Statement of Purpose"

    This site (my Windows World) runs with the purpose of bringing you, the "end user" a friendly community based enviroment in which to openly discuss the MS Windows platform. We are not just limited to that though. There are also places here to discuss every other aspect of Windows, meaning you can also get help with all your anti-virus and spyware problems and software in general.

    We also provide a forum for you to discuss any hardware and case modification matters which you may have. In Joomla there are a number of different options avalialable to you as a member as well. We have everything from an image gallery to a downloads page to a top sites and reviews list. There are alot of other things here to to make your stay more enjoyable to.

    All in all, mWW was created to give you a good clean, friendly place on the internet to come and relax and to be up-to-date on Windows and the world of technology, I hope you come in and join us and enjoy your stay.

    Very cool for Windows Users that enjoy using Windows! (so that's... 0 people? lol)

    Nice job with the site, though I'm not sure about that forum skin. It's too Mosaic cloudy.

    I`ll take that into consideration. Is it just the background thats not appealing or the way the forum looks all together. Thanks for the compliment btw.

    Thank you very much. The site has gone through alot of changes since it has been up which is just under a year. Its doing good as far as I`m concerned. It doesnt have a million members or anything but its a good, friendly community with enough to keep you busy.

    The only problem (not on your part I don't think) is it doesn't load/display properly at my school and I wondered if you would know why. You don't have any special thing on it do you. The reason I'm asking this is I help/run the schools network and website and want to make sure its not a major error. I think its just cookies/network restrictions, but I just want to make sure.

    EDIT:: NVM it works now, it was just cookies (I'm at school :( )

    Under school rules we're obliged (sp?) to have the network flawless and functioning properly, so I wanted to make sure I hadn't come across a major problem

    marked by extreme care in treatment of details; "a meticulous craftsman"; "almost worryingly meticulous in his business formalities"

    It means you take pride in what you do. Your very careful not to make mistakes.

    oh ok, mainly all I have to do is the website (check it out at: http://fhci.wrdsb.on.ca), but I am also responsible for making sure all computers are hooked up to the network properly and that they can view the internet correctly. Our school has a lot of computer/internet based programs and if the network/internet doesn't work properly they can't continue classes and lessons. Yes I am/we are very nit picky as we want things to run properly. Hope this anwsers your question.
