That's great! I have a cuckoo clock, all in bits, my hubby was working on, (before he left this crappy world for a better life) would love to get it fully restored and cuckooing happily once more!

Looks okay in the case department, but it keeps time like the old PF1 clock. ;)

I'd be interested to know what was done and how much it cost.

I have a similar clock that needs a bit of external touch-up. Internals work fine

Hey, I did it.
I amended the holding page....it's not a hosting plan anyway, just mail only, so there's no room for fanciness......
And considering I have zero coding skills....

I hate it when that happens.

I doubt there is any way to save face so I'm just going to exit the threa.....

Cool :)

What part of the country is he in?

Were his charges reasonable?

I have my parents old mantel clock which was presented to my Dad in 1955. It has absorbed the smoke of 50 plus years of open fires from sitting on the mantlepiece.

Oh how I want to have it restored back to full working order - bell chimes an all :)

I got confused for a moment - I thought these guys had started up again. They were seriously good in Education at the time - Acorn Computers (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acorn_Computers) (I know about these things!!)

The domain did contain contact details.....


Napier.

ANd forget it Metla, I know I have zero coding skills, besides he didn't really care whether he had a site or not, it was mainly for the emails...
PLus colleague assisted it straightening it up, you should have seen it before he gave me lessons....
