Gratitude, Thanks & Inspiration
"When you've got so much to say, it's called gratitude, and that's right"

This page is dedicated to all of the wonderfull people, organisations
and concepts that have made this website possible. For this and much
more, I want to say a big Teddy Trips thanks!
First and foremost, none of this would have been possible without the
guidance and support of Richard Dickson. Richard built the first version
of this site, and has been instrumental in helping to get this
second version up and running too. He is not only a first class code poet,
but a generous friend and genuinely good guy. Thanks Richard!
I also want to give a huge shout out to
and his awesome Ruby on Rails Course at
I would never have got the new version of this site up and running
without this excellent resource. About 60% of this site
has simply been adopted from his original code (if we ever get the chance
to meet Michael - and I hope we do one day - I will buy you
the world's largest beer!). If you want to learn Ruby on Rails, there is
no better guide!
When I first started programming on a C64, the internet didn't really
exist and the only coding tips you could get were from a magazine.
These days however, there are literally millions of new friends
and colleagues to be found over at
possibly one of the
world's greatest websites after Wikipedia. Not to mention all of the
coders sticking up blog posts and insights into how to crack various
problems. There are two people I want to thank personally. The first is
who helped me solve a particularly devilish problem with Google Maps.
The second is Nouran Mahmoud
who very kindly pointed me in the right
getting google maps up and running in Rails
Greg Henriques and the crowd over at
a shout out for the design (even though I paid them for it!).
I am a happy camper Greg, and thanks for all the enthusiasm,
support and tips over the years!
And finaly, but by no means least, my wife Bodil Taylor, for
putting up with the countless hours she has seen me scrunched up
over a keyboard and staring at a screen in a state of baffled bemusement.
Love ya B!
It's been a huge challenge building this site from scratch, but also
hugely rewarding. I hope you enjoy using it as much as I have building
