Joined this forum to ask a question about something, had to rush out for a few hours, came back and ended up posting on a couple of threads I have some small knowledge about
... then forgot what the hell it is I was going to ask!
Oh yeah, who am I and what do I do, well
I run a small local outfit primarily engaged in the building, configuring, maintaining, repairing and upgrading of computers, mostly windows but also linux, basically a couple of guys trying to scrape a living doing 'computer stuff'
Taken off to the point where some kind of system for recording jobs carried out, customer information, warranty information on parts supplied, booking in future jobs with reminders, point of contact for customers etc etc is needed and a database driven site seemed the best answer
Searched around for and tried out a few cms systems but couldn't find anything that really lends itself to what we need to create, not without hacking things all over the place anyway, so it's down to me dusting off my sorely lacking, super-rusty and vastly under-used knowledge of php-mysql-css, and building something from scratch myself ... not helped by the fact I've always hated building websites
So, I figured this forum could be a useful resource whenever I get stuck and can't find the answer just by googling and fiddling ... it's bound to happen!
