The site in general.
The site is made up of main categories, eg:- The Steamy Pages, Havebane TilbehÝr (danish), Scale-Q-lator etc.
Clicking on one of these main categories on the menu bar will bring you to the introduction page for the selected category.
2 Methods of Navigation.
Having two methods of naigation probably seems like overkill, however the Page Selection Box is there to help those who find the "Drop Down Menu" a nuisance to use, which I can understand if one wants to browse numerous pages, going up and finding ones way through all the menu items can waste extra time, especially if the mouse curcor moves off the menu and it disappears, forcing one to open it again .... Aaargh !!!
The "Page Selection Box" allows you to select the "Child Pages" that are part of the page you are on. Parent pages are also listed, and by clicking on the "Previous Page Viewed" item will obviously bring you back to the page you came from.
Just to make it even easier, a site structure tree (right) is provided on this page to show how the website is put together, and allowing access to pages by clicking on the page links.
The Home Page can be accessed from the icon at the bottom centre of the page. The "< Previous Page " button beside it can be used to return to the page you came from.
Due to the fact that we have, in the past, been plagued with SPAM mail, we have had to remove a direct email link from the site. Also it has been necessary to write our email address incorrectly as the contents of the site can be automatically read and any email addresses found, harvested for further use.
Please when using the email address below, REMOVE the 2 Z's from the address, as they have been added to confuse the email harvesting "spiders"

A few small updates have taken place during the past few months until now, but nothing worth writing about !
However I have just added a page called Paintshop Pro where I give take a general look at PSP versions X3 / X4. It also deals with a couple of the palettes and how to apply gradients and create a new gradient. I have noticed that a few people have visited this site after searching on Google for help with the gradient tool. I hope it my account will be helpful to anyone seeking help with it in the future.
Another new page (sub page to Paintshop Pro, deals with enhancing photos with PSP X4, using the Smart Photo Fix, Local Tone Mapping and Fill Light & Clarity adjustments.
The problem with YouTube videos mentioned below, seems to have be sorted out by YouTube of Mozilla, as the embedded videos now work OK in Firefox.
June 19th 2011.
A problem has been discovered with the viewing of embedded YouTube videos when using the Firefox Browser on the TDR video page, and some of the Paddle Steamer pages. Starting the embedded video results in an error message. A direct link has been added below the relevant videos, which will open a new window with a functioning video. This was noticed after updating to Firefox version 4. The problem is widespread on forums and other sites with embedded YouTube videos. It is a bug that seems to have affected many Firefox users since version 3. The embedded videos DO WORK IN INTERNET EXPOLORER !
May 26th 2011.
A tabbed section about internet security, some of the various free antivirus available, Internet Security Suites, free antimalware scanners and firewalls, has been added to the tabbed pages on "Computer Stuff" page.
February 5th 2011.
Several small adjustments have been made, and a rotating image box has been added to the home page. Clicking on one of the photos will take you to the relevant section of the site.

The new look website was launched.
The Tumbly Down Cottage site was completely redesigned, using WYSIWYG Web Builder 7. Many hours were spent editing the 271 photos and graphical elements from the old site, and then building each of the original 86 pages into the new design.
It has been very tiring, but fun ! Over the coming months, when time allows I hope to add some new features. Some new pages have been added to the new site, such as the "our Furry Friends" page dedicated to our cats. The Computer Stuff pages need to be added to in the future. I hope to include more useful FREE software details and personal reviews. Also get a section on PC security done, something that was supposed to be done on the old website, but never materialised. :-(
Anyway, I will just say that I hope visitors to this site, enjoy their visit !
