Great advice there Mike, Thank You!

Rodney, I am normally not one to say this sort of thing on a thread but, Mike has above gone to alot of trouble to help answer all of your questions (With great detail and advice) and am quite amazed that the only response from yourself is about a link from your portfolio.

To me, Saying Thank You is easy to say because when I say it I mean it, It means am grateful for what someone has done for me. Saying Thank you is also FREE and doesn't cost a penny, but shows appreciation for someones good nature and can also mean alot in that good natured person's life, they then get the feeling of goodness and have gratitude for their own efforts!

I don't want to come accross to yourself Rodney or anyone else for that matter as a jumped up little oik, and I should of been shot at birth! But, I also feel this sort of gesture would bennfit in any proffesion, as being polite means alot to everyone. I currently work as a sales assistent (wont plug the photography shop) and every customer that comes in I greet them with a smile speak clearly and use my mannors in the best way I know how! This is one of the cheap things in business, as it don't cost anything! Maybe this could be one of the points that was missed above?

This is not meant just at yourself Rodney, but to people in general, from all walks off life!

Am sorry to rant, and if anyone feels that am out of line then I do appologies now! This is just something that I think is importent in every day life and yet so many people take everyone elses good nature for granted!

Craig :o)

Craig, presumably you missed Rodney's reply thanking Mike and the others, just two postings above the one to which you refer.

All the very best in your endeavours Rodney! Smile

On a more general point it's notable how so much writing are affected by Text-Speak... so prevalent since the introduction of mobile phones, e.g "u r" instead of "you are".

I know this thread is old now but just to say, nice advice Mike.


Secondly, for anyone with MS word or similar, type your emails in here, correct spelling and cut and past into the reply/new thread box.
This also has the luxury of if your post dosent go through IE crash or time out you still have a copy on file.

I would imagine Mike would be suicidal if he lost that post half way through:/
