Holmegaard Resource
« on: April 10, 2007, 01:38:47 PM »
Just to let folk know that the site finally has a domain name proper, rather than being tucked away in a sub-folder of my shop.

The label & signature pages are still the only working pages so far, but others should start to appear over the coming weeks. So until then, courage!  ;D

New site - www.holmegaardresource.com

Nic:  Master of the drop-down shadow.   ;) :D

Nice work Nic, I look forward to seeing it when it's finished.  :)

It'll never be finished - I've a combined 274 years of history and glass from two factories to cover (more if I eventually incorporate Hellerup and Odense who merged with Kastrup in the 1920s) - but it will gradually be less unfinished.  ;D

Nic, I thought this deserved proper exposure in the Glass section, rather than languishing in the Cafe. Far too important ;)

It won't be anything like important (or particularly useful) for a good long while yet!  Currently it's little more than a couple of pages with some sketchy dates for labels.  :-[

I just thought that they may come in handy for someone in the meanwhile, even if the dates are still quite broad.  :)

Nic, well done for getting the site started and the work you've done so far - it looks amazing.  I'm certain it will become an invaluable resource for many, including me, and I'll organise a mention and credit on my website ASAP.

Thanks Pip, but could you hold off until there are a few more pages on the site - or put a small note by it to say that it's in development - most of the links don't lead anywhere yet, and I don't want too many folk getting grumpy!  ;D

I really should put holding pages at the end of the links, rather than having them lead nowhere, I know! It's just finding the time.

No problem Nic - when you feel your site is at a stage you're comfortable with let me know and I'll add it in.

Ah, when I've at least a handful of glass bits at the end of each link should be fine. I'll let you know.  ;D
