Hello world!

Dobey.net on the move again. New server and a refresh of the site layout – blog is moving over here to dobey.net/blog¬†since it’s really not used. It’s also a fresh install to tidy things up a bit.

We’re also going to try something new out on the front page.

All mail settings are updated and email moved – we good to go for another 8 years or so!

So far the banners are photo’s I have taken. If you’d like to offer some generic banner photos that you think would look good size them as 1000 x 288¬† Pixels (Ratio 1:3.47) and I’ll put them in the rotation (Crop first then resize).

If you got a few pictures of little or big Dobeys you want to present to the world I’ll put those on the “Photos” page linked from the home page.

The Year that was 2005.

Kevin's Photo Review of 2005 Collage (Small)

I’ve been reviewing all my photos from the past year and selecting a collection which reflect the year that was 2005 for us.

Obviously there is going to be quite a lot of pictures of my two little girls.

So what happened in 2005. Well…

  • Laura’s baby sister really started to get big
  • Mel turned 30
  • Anthony got married to the lovely Gráinne
  • Michelle got married to Tom
  • Stephen and Neasa got married (to each other)
  • We had 2 weeks of glorious weather in Taracove (Wexford)
  • I spent a weekend on the Shannon on John’s boat with the “the boys”.
  • Laura turned 3 and Caoimhe turned 1 – walked and really started to make some coherent sounds
  • Santa came to town – big time

The 2005 in review album is 87 pictures and you can find it here. (Use arrow keys or mouse to navigate)
For those who object to flash you can just skip directly to the images.

Keano’s New Song

I’m afraid that technology failed me at 7.20 on Tuesday morning and I missed Keano’s version of “500 Miles”. I expect I will get it on Saturday morning – so if you don’t know what I’m talking about then click into www.dobey.net/martin sometime on Saturday and hopefully Keano’s new song will be there!
(This post is really about me testing out this new front page for Dobey.net. – Kevin, thanks for the new teachnology.)

On the move …. again

Dobey.net is on the move again, this time just to a new server machine with in the same hosting provider. Switch should be seamless – just need to set up all the email addresses again … groan ….

IF you can see THIS page then you have arrived at the new server. While all email address will remain the same your user name use use to connect and collect your email has changed a little – you need to drop the “web37_” prefix and just add a “@dobey.net” suffix instead, this change needs to be made in your you email program (i.e. outlook). You will NOT lose any email while you make this change. Check webmail to see that you can log in ok.

On the move

Dobey.net is on the move. I’m moving this site to a fully hosted domain and away from yahoo domains (our previous domain host). The new site will be hosted by blacknight solutions. This should be happening in the next few days
