Hi Guys,
I know it's grammatically incorrect BUT I had a lot of people who kept calling the business I FIX P - C - S if you get me? So that is why I stuck an apostrophe in there and that has stopped this happening now.
In all honesty no one's ever picked up on it before(7 years) and I usually get positive feedback about my business name - until now!
Anyway thanks for the comments and I'll sort those links out!
Cheers
Andy

Honestly I like the concept, but the execution is off. Could be tricky adding pages and content.

Oh and you aren't using the correct American spelling of Labor.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for your feedback. Glad someone likes the concept!
I didn't want to have it looking bland like some I've seen using outdated
Pale blues and greys.

Can you elaborate a bit more though on your comments re the execution and expandability of the site?

Would really appreciate that.

Labor-very funny!

Cheers

Andy

I think sometimes its the case that people post their sites on here asking for reviews but actually just looking for a pat on the back and not much else.

There have been a few like this recently - where people have responded with comments that are spot-on in terms of blatantly obvious problems with sites, only to have the respective OP come back with all sorts of elaborate reasons why its faults are actually an intentional part of its incredibly cunning design.

Hello,

Well that wasn't my intention!
I needed outside opinions on what the website looked like because as you guys know it's really hard to be objective when you do everything yourself!

The only thing I defended was the reason behind why i'm using the apostrophe in I FIX PC'S - I wasn't expecting that just a critique of the website! Anyway I might change the apostrophe after the comments made - only problem is I've got everything branded like that!

I don't understand why you are surmising I wanted a pat on the back, that's not my intention, I definitely don't want a war of words over a website, lifes too short!

Anyway, I have taken the comments on colours clashing with links, I've also tweaked the layout and over use of colour, dare I ask if it's any better?

Thanks

Andy

Love your site by the way Mr Felixstowe Computer Repair!
If you fancy a geek chat sometime about 'puter repairs and the business in general give me a call!!
If you want to pop round for a coffee sometime would be great to hook up for a chin wag!
Cheers

Thanks!
I am surprised you saw it today, just moving my sites over to a new server and I kinda bollox'd this one up so it is down right now. Never mind, things have been so quiet recently I hope no one will notice it missing for a couple of hours....
I'll give you a call next time I am in town, coffee is always good!!

I don't mean to offend here.

I like the concept, but I don't think you are a web designer. Hire a web designer and tell them to give you a few samples based upon your current design. Keep in mind that it will be a bit harder to make additions or changes. The current layout also does not seem image friendly.
